Where To Go

  1. To pursue the Ph.D degree at Nicolas’ lab next year or
  2. To try to transfer to another better grad schools two year later.

Pros for 1:

  • I can save time to get a Ph.D by applying 1 year earlier than usual.
  • I don’t have to wonder about a funding anymore because Nicolas promised a RA position during Ph.D.
  • Machine Learning and computational neuroscience looks so interesting.
  • I can participate a research very soon and may be able to write a paper.
  • Nicolas seems to be VERY nice and passionate.
  • Members of lab are also nice.

Cons against 1:

  • USC doesn’t rank high in computer science or neuroscience.
  • In Korea, it is not easy to get a job in neuroscience.

Hmm… It seems to be better for me to accept the suggestion. Let’s listen to my Lord. Thanks.
