  1. Hi all, Thanks for reading this! I'm deciding between the Computation and Neural System PhD program at Caltech and the Brain and Cognitive Science PhD program at MIT. For background, I double major in Neuroscience and Cognitive Science with a minor in Applied Math and Stats in a top 10 university. Have been doing cognitive/systems/comp neuro research for 3 years. I'm interested in mechanisms of learning and decision-making, broadly defined, and also cognition in general. That's pretty broad, and I'll narrow down what I want to do once I decide on my rotations. Both programs seem to be pretty good research fit, but I would like to know more about what your opinions/experiences are. Particularly I'm curious about the student life at both places. There's also a personal bit to it: my significant other works in LA and would love to have me move to Pasadena, but he is also willing to move to Boston/Cambridge if I do decide to attend MIT (his work is flexible). But he would like us to be in California eventually. I'm not sure how this should factor into my decision process. Thanks in advance for any reply!
  2. Hi there! Does anyone have any suggestions for an online non-degree neuroanatomy class? My local community colleges don't offer one and have been looking for an online one that would count for a pre-req, but still letting my travel to go home. My father is very sick and I help take care of him/visit and spend time, any suggestions would be very appreciated!
  3. 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?!
  4. Hello fellow users, I am a recent graduate from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I received my undergraduate through the Liberal Arts College and majored in Individual Program of Study in Neuroscience, a major that I tailored with my research professor since a neuro degree wasn't actually offered yet at U of I for undergrads. I graduated with a 3.2 GPA due to a lot of personal events and stress that occurred during my undergrad, along with being diagnosed with anxiety/depression at the end of my junior year. Despite my low GPA though, I do have about 3 years of research experience in a neurophysiology lab. I am currently living in the Bay Area, CA and my stress levels have stabilized since graduating about 6 months ago - I am currently studying for the GRE and looking at graduate schools to apply to. I am also very interested in furthering my studies internationally. I'm very worried that my low GPA will have a huge negative impact on my application. The schools I am looking at applying to are: - Berkeley and UCSF (I know these are a huge stretch) - U of I in Chicago and U of I in Urbana-Champaign - Rush University - Northwestern University - University of Washington - University of Minnesota - University of Toronto - McGill University - University of Edinburgh - University of Glasgow - Trinity College Dublin I feel like I am aiming too high for these programs, but I am extremely interested in their labs and they deliver high-quality education for postgrads. I am feeling pretty intimidated though, any advice or thoughts would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for listening.
