    Greetings fellow forum users, I just found out that I've been accepted to the PhD program in political science at Washington University in St. Louis (beginning August 2017). Given that I am primarily interested in Cognitive Neuroscience and Gender Studies, I'm fairly certain that I'll end up attending WashU for graduate study. That said, I'd like to try and get in touch with other individuals that have also been accepted by WashU just so I might get a head start in getting to know my cohort. So, if you or anyone you know has also been accepted to the PhD program in Psychology at WashU, pl

    My PI's lab is on Danforth campus so it seems like it would be about a 15 minute bike through Forest Park and worse comes to worse, I can take an uber since the apartment is only 8 min away (according to google maps)

    Recently accepted to Wash U for Cog Neuro PhD! Haven't officially accepted yet as I have one other recruitment weekend to attend but will more than likely be attending Wash U in the fall =] I've been looking at Clayton on the Park, Lofts at the Highlands, and Cortona at Forest Park for apartments. Only concern is transportation to Wash U from the Lofts and Cortona (though it's only a 15 min bike). Tips?
  4. Accepted to my top choice with funding for 6 years + summers!!!! So fricken' happy!!!
  5. Just got back from recruitment weekend at my #1 choice and my PI emailed me to let me know they would be sending out their final decisions this week. I'm dying
  6. I'm from West Bloomfield! I currently live in Ann Arbor/Ypsi area Nice to know there are lots of Michiganders on here!
  7. Just got back from recruitment weekend. How long does it usually take to hear back?
  8. (I'm a girl) I think I'm going to get my hair dyed! I've never done it because I always grow it out and donate it to Locks of Love (I've done it 5 times now!) but this is something I've really wanted and I think I need to do it while I'm in my 20s or I won't be able to do it later. It's not going to be anything drastic though because I don't want it to look unprofessional.
  9. Mine isn't until next month but I'm already freaking out.... everyone keeps telling me to "be myself" but i'm having ridiculous imposter syndrome right now
  10. Congrats! I got my BA and my MS from U of M so lemme know (PM me) if you have any questions or concerns about housing, the campus, etc.! My building is right across from the physics building too
  11. just called. they said if we were invited we would have already received an invite
  12. i might just email them...i want to know. i 100% a nuisance and i'm sorry.
  13. aw man well i'll copy and paste them below (Sorry for length): My apologies for taking so long to get this post up! I started classes and have been pretty sick. As a reminder, the more questions you ask me, the more I know what you want answers to! The purpose of the post for today is to provide my insights into interviews and hopefully ease some fears by helping you figure out what to expect at a biomedical science, molecular biology, immunology, or similar interview. I have a few questions that were in my message box, but other than that, I'm just going to fill in the piece
