My son-in-law is touring colleges in the US so that he can study the brain and how it is affected by DMD, hoping to one day figure out how to help that aspect of this disorder.
So far, he has been brought in for interviews by Penn (Ivy league), Washington Uni. in St. Louis, and Uni. of Southern Cal.
Personally, we want him to go to USC because it is close to home and we will still have our grand babies close to home. But, funding there is low. Yah, cuz George Lucas and Will Ferrell are giving all their money for the acting portion of the school. No worries, USC is what it is...a great school to pursue a career in the entertainment industry.
So, that leaves him with UWinSTL and PENN.
Does anyone in these areas know anything about these schools? How is their Neurological programs? Heard of the professors/doctors that work with the students?
Any feedback would be great.
Robert McDonald, I met you at conference in philly 2008....if i remember correctly, you went to school in STL. Can you provide any feedback?
Any help i can get to help my son-in-law make an informed decision on where he goes for his graduate degree is greatly appreciated.
