@MYOS1634 Yes, the other in-state universities that I applied to were UCF and FAU. I didn't really like the atmosphere at UCF (too crowded, lower chances at obtaining an opportunity), so I definitely won't be attending there. I applied to FAU, and its Honors college in Jupiter. Although I applied to FAU and visited, I didn't visit the Honors College yet (so I am not sure how I will feel about it). I got into the Honors College too and I am hoping to visit soon (probably during spring break). I heard that there are two research institutes ( Max Planck and Scripps). One of which has a great program in neuroscience (A friend of mine did an internship there). That definitely made me think about my in-state options. Even when I don't want to stay in-state. Anyways, if I do decide to stay in-state and pursue in neuroscience, I don't know how the institution will support my interest in political science. (Which I am really passionate about also).
Much of the work at Scripps Florida is dedicated to basic biomedical research, a vital segment of medical research that seeks to decipher the most fundamental processes of life. Additionally, researchers at Scripps Florida are developing advanced technologies and applying these tools to the discovery of new therapeutic agents for a variety of devastating human diseases. Among others, these include: HIV/AIDS, cancer, depression, diabetes, hepatitis C, leishmaniasis (a tropical and sub-tropical parasitic disease), obesity, prion disease, Parkinson's disease, and diseases of learning and memory including Alzheimer's disease, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and autism.
