PhD Program Profile: University of Rochester

Location:  Rochester, NY
Program Name:  PhD in Brain and Cognitive Science
Department Name(s):  Department of the Brain and Cognitive Sciences
Program Goals:  Not directly stated
Minimum GPA:  Unknown
GRE Scores:  Unknown
Pros:
  • offers a focus in cognitive modeling
Cons: 
  • only one of the three letters of recommendation can be from a supervisor
  • doesn't seem to offer anything about dynamics
Thoughts:  I'm liking this program a bit less.  The biggest con is requiring at least two letters of recommendation to be from researchers.  I don't have that.  They also don't give me any idea about what chances I have to get in, but I'm betting that it's fairly low.
