Paid Research in California

In a striking turn of events I have been accepted to 2 summer programs. Not at all suprisingly, they are both in California (I only applied to places in CA). One is by the beach at Humboldt University in Arcata CA. The other is near LA with a Caltech professor at the Keck Graduate Institute in Claremont CA (by Pitzer College).

Where in California do you think I should spend the summer?

POLL CLOSED (I went to Claremont CA)


  1. Congratulations!!

    So it looks like you'll be spending a sunny summer in California (presumably under REU-NSF) while it looks as though I'll have the pleasure of being in beautiful New Jersey going in to NJIT for a similar program.

    You might want to choose the place with the larger Jewish community.

  2. Does it really matter, so long as it's not NJ?

  3. Etan, if you want to remain anonymous, it usually is a good idea not to blow your cover. Unless you're not really Etan and are only trying to impersonate him, but in that case selecting the other bubble and then typing in the name Etan Bkiet would better serve your cause.

  4. Congratulations, Yoni, that's great news. I voted for the beach -I love the beach. Of course, I'm not going, am I. So I guess it's your decision. It will be a great experience where ever you go.

  5. Due to popular demand, I have accepted the Claremont position. Sorry aunt S
