  1. I was told that you should pick a program if they have multiple faculty you can see yourself working with. You don't want to go to a program because of a specific faculty or lab because this can result in you not liking the lab or people or for some other reason and then you're stuck with no back up options. For me, Davis had more research that I was interested in than Santa Barbara. I'm still waiting to hear from four more schools, but at this point I'm leaning heavily on Davis.
  2. So probably rejections from both, they were a bit of a reach for me anyways. Thanks for the info! ­čÖé
  3. I was accepted to UC Davis and UC Santa Barbara and will be visiting them this weekend, but I'm still waiting on five more schools: Uni of Washington, Washington State, Oregon State, Uni of Oregon, and UC Berkeley Anyone heard from these schools or know when they send out acceptances/rejections?
