  1. Oh man , did you email them yourself ? I think that they are not going to dignify my existence by sending a rejection email.😐😐
  2. I understand how soul-crushing the application process could get. I applied to a few neuroscience programs and was rejected. I think it depends a little bit on your major, that is international applicants with an engineering or computer/physics background have an even better chance of getting into some biology programs because of the huge amount of data that need to be handled even in biological sciences.(or I might be wrong) Also from a few successful cases that I've seen around me it's very helpful to be involved with a big name researcher and be part of a top journal/conference publication (even if you don't get to work on your own interests). Working in a US lab would be a major bonus if you can find one, in my case it is not realistic because of visa/funding issues but I guess it would be easier if you are a European student. But honestly I think so many american applicants have RA jobs in their resume that if you're really thinking about applying to top schools (like programs you mentioned) you'd better get your name in some major publications. (again my personal opinion !) In the meantime, Best of luck on your Uconn interview !
  3. Thanks but are international applicants eligible for these positions? I once applied for one in Uni of Toronto and they said you have to be a Canadian citizen/ permanent resident ...?
  4. They are still reviewing applications and more invitations will be sent in the upcoming weeks. Good luck to everyone who applied there !
  5. Well , I had 5 months research experience in a computational neuroscience lab( no pub) and I did all the statistical analysis and programming in my thesis and my other projects myself . But I was basically told by NYU psychology PI that the main reason I was rejected was because I didn't have a more clear mathemtical background . I think that should be something which is learned through grad school and not an entry requirement for a "psychology" program
  6. Hi Guys, So this is a summary of my application: International student Degree: Medical Degree (MD) - ( not in north america) medschool GPA = 3.25 Toefl ibt = 112/120 GRE: Q=163(83%) - V=159(83%) - W=4 3 poster presentation in cognitive neuroscience ( I was the single only author of all) My MD thesis is in cognitive neuroscience under publication. Applied to : BU ( psychology BBC) NYU ( psychology) albert einstein ( biomed) uni of rochester (Brain and cognitive science) Dartmouth (PBS) Uni of Washington (psychology) my only factor for choosing schools/program was faculty research fit. Result: Rejected from all of them with no interviews. .....So any ideas for what was wrong with my application? What can I do next year to avoid the same tragic result? PS. I am freaking out because in 2020 I will be 29 and old af to start a phd. Also I feel a bit unlucky because in the past 5 years or so the field of Cog Neuro has become dominated by computer scientists , theoretical physicist and all that ML / deep learning stuff and that's not fair !
  7. Me too. I've applied to 6 schools not a word from any of them . I emailed about ten of my favorite professors discussing my research background, NONE responded. I have just finished Medical School in my home country with above average numbers, so I know I'm not that dumb .....but still......?
  8. International student here, I applied to a couple of cognitive neuroscience programs and haven't heard a thing from any of them: NYU (cog psych) albert einstein (Neuro) Boston( cog Psych) Dartmouth ( Brain sciences) Rochester ( Brain and Cognition) Uni of Wash (psych) I have lost all hope... Does anyone have any news about these programs?
