  1. Does anyone know if all interview invites for CNBC program in neural computation have gone out?
  2. Did Brown and Pitt send you a rejection? Or is it just that they didn't send you an interview invite? I haven't heard anything from either (or from any other schools I applied to at all yikes).
  3. Thank you, I'll make sure to elaborate on my research experience!
  4. Does anybody know what funding is like for the program in neural computation at CNBC (Pitt/CMU)? I can't find any mention of funding on their website or elsewhere, and I don't wanna directly ask them about it yet.
  5. Hi everyone! I'm applying to neuroscience PhD programs, and I was wondering if someone could take a look at my statement of purpose and give me any tips. This is an early draft, and it's too long for what some of the schools require so any advice on how to best shorten it would be great. I tailored this copy for the NYU program, and I'm planning to just swap the last paragraph for each program I'm applying to. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1l2P4yHx67Q8gazh8LxFh9xJ4QE2dUTXsrVLV0fV3CJA/edit?usp=sharing
  6. This is super helpful, thank you! I'm seriously considering Brown for sure, it looks like a very good program. Re: Pittsburgh, what does the affiliation with CNBC entail? Can I in principle work with any faculty there for my thesis research?
