Hi! I am in MAJOR need of advice! Here's the sitch: I live in California. I work for an educational non-profit that I LOVE and care for deeply. I was given an unofficial job offer last week to take over our region as a Regional Manager (making a salary, full-time hours, management experience) for minimum of a one year commitment. DAYS later, I receive awesome news! I have been accepted into the Masters of Arts for Psychology with a focus in Cognition and Neuroscience at NYU!!! NEW YORK OMG! I have dreamt of New York for nearly ten years now and even applied to NYU for my BA out of high school (which I got rejected to). This has been my dream of dreams and it is REAL now. However, I would be a transplant student moving miles and miles away, not knowing anyone, with not nearly enough saved up to steadily live. I am not afraid to work hard to get to where I want, because I've already worked hard to get to where I am. I am really battling with myself if I should attempt to defer my admission for a year and possibly take the unofficial job offer (it's not promised yet) or risk it for my dream of studying what I want where I've always wanted. WHAT DO YOU THINK?!
Hi everyone! I haven't seen any love around these forums for people with interests in perception, cognition, vision, attention, memory, etc etc etc. Thought I'd get one going! I've applied to Berkeley, Davis, San Diego, Harvard, Johns Hopkins, U of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, Brandeis, NYU, Tufts, and U of Delaware. Been quite a journey. I'm so pumped that the applications are finally out of my hands, and I've made a number of good connections with POIs, but I'm not looking forward to the wait to hear back!
A thread for those applying to Canadian schools! I've applied to UofT, Alberta, Western, and McMaster myself, as well as the Cognitive Science of Language program at McMaster (my top choice!), anyone hear anything back yet? I am still pending for UofT, Alberta, and both programs at Mac. I have been rejected from Western. From what I can tell, decisions for CogSci of Language will not be released for awhile yet. Any information anyone would like to contribute, its hard to plan where I am going to live and work this summer when things are so up in the air, I am very nervous. I hope applications are going well for everyone! I was interviewed for Toronto in December, and I emailed and met with a supervisor from Mac (as well as had email communication with another Mac professor in December who is on Sabbatical)
