Hello, I am a current senior attending a state university in California, USA. I am really interested in the Developmental Neuroscience and Psychopathology program at UCL and I would appreciate any tips/advice regarding the application and interview process and how to best prepare, as well as descriptions regarding what current/past student's experiences have been like. I am also wondering if I even have a chance at getting in since I am coming from a very small state school and UCL and Yale are such competitive and prestigious universities. I do have research experience in cognitive psychology and social-cognitive neuroscience. Specifically, I've been working in a lab at my home institution using EEG/ERP methods to study memory. I am also working as a summer intern at a private university researching brain-behavior interactions and their role in social and cognitive development in children with autism. I also have a few other relevant experiences and a rather high gpa. In this way, I feel I am a competitive applicant, but I am sure there are people even stronger and may be way in over my head!

Hi UCL is a great university but you have a relevant degree and - more importantly - you have relevant work experience. Universities in the UK are ken on international students (show me the money) so you are in a strong position.
