Question by Said: Which universities have the best graduate programs in cognitive science?
By “cognitive science”, I mean the interdisciplinary study of how information is represented and transformed in the brain. The disciplines whose overlap I’m particularly interested in are philosophy, (cognitive, developmental and evolutionary) psychology, neuroscience and linguistics. Alternatively, I’d like to know of graduate programs in philosophy or psychology that study (interdisciplinarily) how information is represented and transformed in the brain.

Question by Turnoffgrowl: What schools provide good Post bac programs for students with limited sciences?
I graduated with a BA in psych but have limited science experience. Recently I’ve developed a strong interest in pursuing a career in neuroscience or neurophysiology. What post bac programs are good for someone with my interests and background?

Best answer:

Answer by anonymous
The AAMC website allows you to browse post bac programs by their purpose, location, and whether or not you’d like some sort of certification. You’d probably do well to search under the career changers category since many of those schools will focus on actually teaching the sciences and not enhancing grades. Good luck!

Indiana University has such a program. I don’t know how it ranks compared to others. Check the research interests of the faculty to see how they compare with your own.

Question by Blahbity: How to find the % of students from a college that are accepted into graduate programs?
I have to decide whether to attend Boston University, University of Pittsburgh, and University of Rochester before May 1st.
I would like to see the percentage of students from those colleges who are successfully apply to graduate schools. If possible, I would like the data for neuroscience/brain and cognitive majors, or at least from the college of arts and sciences.
I found data for all the UR students from it’s Career Center website, but not the specific data.

Best answer:

Answer by L
Honestly, you may just have to call the university’s department and ask specifically. They are unlikely to put that information online since it is very specific and somewhat personal.

You can probably go to the department’s website for each school, however, and find their post-graduation statistics.

Question by somegirl: Are there any graduate programs to study Neurology or neuroscience?
I’m a biology student but do not have the gpa for med school (3.5). I am interested in research and maybe working with biotechnology.

Best answer:

Answer by Marie
I have no idea what the other poster is going on about. ;-)

There are graduate programs in both, yes. You can take a master’s or PhD in neuroscience. (Probably in neurology too, although I do tend to think of that as the medical specialty.)

FWIW, 3.5 is not necessarily going to keep you out of med school, if that is what you really want to do–though if your interest is research you may indeed be a better candidate for a PhD. Talk to your guidance office or a teacher you trust. But don’t let one number convince you that anything is out of the question.

Why Most Corporate Diversity Programs Are Wrong-headed
The goal of most corporate diversity programs is simple: to increase the percentages of certain minorities in the overall employee pool to mirror the country as a whole.  It’s a misguided approach, even when it comes with programs designed to help retain minorities that have been hired.
