  3. Chicago, IL

    Hey, everyone! I'm a Southerner considering attending Northwestern (Evanston campus, but I'd like to live in North Chicago). Just wondering what life in the city is like in the winter. Do people just sort of hole up inside and try to bear it, or are there fun parts to the cold months?

  6. One super alternative to owning a dog that will make you money: walking/dogsitting on Rover or another app. You're not responsible for a dog 100% of the time, plus you get paid! I've found that some cities are easier to find dogsitting gigs, however (i.e. bigger cities with young professionals are more likely to have dog-owners using an app to find sitters). (Edit: I've been creeping on this thread for a while, because you guys have some great ideas on getting through grad school! Please pardon the biologist intruding )

    My first acceptance to Northwestern IBiS!!! What a relief to have an official offer on the table

    While quantitative experience can be "impressive," if it's not your thing, don't do it. Is there any way you can pick up a psych or neuroscience minor? Otherwise, I agree that extra biology and extra psychology classes would be most helpful (plus research, obviously)!

    If this was for me, I'm going for the rescheduled cancer bio date in March!

    Same here--checked my spam/promotions/application profile, and there's nothing.
