His undergraduate majors at Duke University were in biomedical engineering, electrical and computer engineering, and physics with a minor in chemistry. He graduated summa cum laude with election to Tau Beta Pi and Phi Beta Kappa.Wow, William Hwang is beyond impressive. Look at him, Rhodes Scholar, Goldwater, MD/PhD at Harvard/MIT ... wow I am humbled.
I think they inflate the statistic. The other guys are in first year medical school, and are like 24-25. So they've hung around labs for 2-3 years. That doesn't count as pure undergraduate. The first guy just has 5 papers from undergrad, and is 3rd/4th author. No first authors until he got into medical school already.
William Hwang, however, is impressive. That's who I was referring to about the 30 - 22 years old, 1st year HST, with 3 books, 3 books/chapters, 13 papers.
This guy has definitely never had a girlfriend.
Although I want to think that statement is unfair, I've sat here the past 5 minutes thinking about how it would be possible in the slightest bit for William Hwang to have anything close to a social life. I really can't come up with anything. I don't even think he would have time for booty calls, if he had access to them (which is seriously doubtful).
I just wanted to thank you guys for a good laugh. Billy is a good guy. I'm not going to go into any of his business, but you all shouldn't worry about his love life, it's just fine.
I could never achieve what these people have achieved. But then again, these people could never achieve what I have achieved.
