To apply for admission to the Honors Track, please login to your NYU gmail account and complete the application form here, including submitting an unofficial transcript and a two page personal statement. The purpose of the Personal Statement is to allow us to evaluate your degree of commitment to research as well as your likelihood to succeed in the program.
The Personal Statement should describe any research background you have, the reasons why you want to do research, and the general area(s) of interest you have with respect to research. It should also include a statement of your career goals (e.g., PhD, MD,MD/PhD). If you have already begun to do research in neuroscience, then include information pertaining to any or all of the following: Goal of the research, including a tentative title; Why it is interesting to you and is significant to the field; The approach that will be taken (need not be detailed); Rationale for the approach (why is this approach useful?). We understand that any plan you may have at this point is subject to change and does not represent a commitment to a particular thesis project or lab. *If you believe that the GPA requirement should be waived in your case, then explanation of why this should be waived can be included in the Personal Statement.
Completed applications must be received by January 15 for consideration for enrollment in Spring Honors coursework and by June 15 for consideration for enrollment in Fall Honors coursework.
