Calling all neuro applicants for Fall 2019 matriculation! I figured it was time to make a post specifically for us to comment, ask for feedback, and post interview dates and results!

I am applying for Cognitive Neuroscience and am only applying to a few real neuroscience departments. One of which is MIT, which asks for the name of the textbook used in every course I have taken. I have no idea how to fill this out. With a tremendous amount of effort, I think that I could figure out the textbook for most of the classes, but I don't think there is any way to find it for every class. Any thoughts?

@sendmeadvice Wow that's pretty intense! I luckily haven't come across any schools that require that amount of depth. I don't imagine that they expect you to remember every. single. textbook you have ever used for classes, so I would just find/try to remember as many as possible and leave it at that! It definitely seems a bit over the top, for sure. Maybe someone else who's also applying to MIT will reply with their thoughts on what to do!

It's a massive pain in the ass (I don't understand the purpose either). I plan on filling in on the ones I can and either leaving it blank or writing N/A for the ones I can't.
