  1. I don't know if this thread is active anymore, but here goes. So, I've been finalising a list of schools I will eventually apply to and during the research I came across these "Umbrella Programs". I have heard that these programs have a greater acceptance percentage compared to specialised programs (such as Neuroscience, Cancer Biology, etc.) and also a more diverse pool of labs you can choose from later. Would you guys suggest applying for these programs? What are the pro and cons of applying to umbrella programs versus applying to specific departments?
