Nerds Are Hip Now

Thanks to the crash of Wall Street recently, it seems it's becoming hip to be an engineer:
As the financial crisis deepens, science and math graduates of top colleges and universities who once flocked to investment banking are now looking to jobs in engineering and technology.
Maybe. But having taken a biomedical engineering tract before medical school, I can attest that my lab partners NEVER looked like that...

When I was a student at Northwestern University majoring in Biomedical Engineering, Cindy Crawford was an underclassman majoring in Chemical Engineering.

Alas, Cindy left after the first quarter to pursue her career in modeling. I think the fact that she never met me may have eased the transition out of Evanston to NYC.
