I'm talking about everything: neuro, molecular bio, CS, Yatzhee, tiddlywinks competition team. There's no way CMU has anything more rigorous than Caltech.Well, I am familiar with the rankings and what people say, but I don’t have firsthand experience at either a school. And finally, I was only referring to CS, so if you got your Neuro PhD there, I wasn’t trying to knock you.
As for me, what is the part that is hard to believe? That I didn’t go to college or where I work? Both are true and not that far fetched; I’m not the only person without a degree amongst the more commonly educated at my company.
But, regardless, you must be really good at what you do, so props to you!
