Abstract
Brief excerpt from interview: That's one thing in science that everyone hates: you have to cite every little thing. Taking a lot of Writing Intensives classes in a scientific major teaches you if you don't have those citations, people can't use your writing at all. Citing makes your papers more powerful... All of these classes have helped us learn why there is that scientific format, why it's useful, why we should do it, and how is the best way to go about actually writing it.
