NSU Experience

I was scrambling to save my career that had been bedeviled with series of unfortunate events. Prof Roopnarine "saw" something in me. She encouraged me to apply for the Masters of Science program. Willy-nilly I did. From the first day, I was very rustic. I could not even submit my classwork successfully! Then,I began to really enjoy the program. It was like a nuclear explosion of spreading activations as my memory exploded. This program is full of wonderful Professors. Notable among the excellent Professors are Prof Jaffe, Reza and Saleem. Jaffe will work you to bits but will reward you handsomely if you follow. Reza is very benevolent but he will present a difficult facade. Saleem is very nice. However, he will lay a foundation of neuroscience for your career. Please, regurgitate his notes. Trust me. This is a great program. If an old dog like me can learn new tricks then this program can help you. I was admitted into the NSU-KPCOM program before I saw my last GPA. Saleem thinks I will make a good Neurosurgeon. The secret? Be positive, be humble. The program is designed to help you. They know your zone of proximal development. They will extend it. I am a benefactor of that largesse. Come join me on top of the food chain.
