    3. If BE offered something similar to Biotracks in Course 7, would you take electives more seriously?
    4. What do you expect to get out of a restricted elective? (Choices: letter of recommendation, minor, an easy A, further exploration of a particular BE field, tangentially applicable knowledge to BE, etc.)
