Why would a Pre-Med need to own a lab coat? Is one needed? If so, why?
Are you inclined to spill stuff all over yourself?
I've taken lots of chem, bio, biochem labs and only 1-2% of the students wear a lab coat.
They weren't particularly disposed to soiling their clothes, they were just blow-hards.
Don't want wear a labcoat. It's an ugly trait among undergrads that compels your labmates to spit in your petri dish.
The cardinal sin is wearing a labcoat with your name embroidered over your left breast pocket
unless you're going to tell them how to deal with pee on their scrubs, don't tell them to do that.Lab coats are very warm. I would recommend wearing one all the time. Not because you're pre-med, but because they're just nice and warm.
Also, scrubs are very comfortable underneath a lab coat, and you want to be comfortable, so you should definitely think about investing in 6-7 sets.
Yup, scrubs and a lab coat. Warmth and comfort. Wear it every day.
