neal young / for prospective grad students
This message is for students who are considering applying to the UCR graduate program and working in my research group.
Thanks for your interest, I do encourage you to apply to the UCR graduate program, and, if you are admitted, to come talk to me.
With rare exceptions, I do not fund (or commit to advising) students before they have been at UCR for a year or so and we have worked together enough to find a "fit".
As I receive many e-mail messages from prospective students, and my response is generally just to communicate the above information, I have stopped responding to such emails. (I am of course happy to respond to emails asking specific questions about papers of mine, related work, etc.)
