OT: The Because Science Thread (Now With Aliens!)


Staff member
My nephew from the wife's side. Kid is a genius. Has an interview for a PHD program at M.I.T. next week. Apparently less than 1% of applicants even get an interview.

So Lucas has some offers on the table. So far he has scholarship offers from Vanderbilt, Carnegie Mellon... but the big one is a $90k per year scholarship for 5 years to earn his PhD from Yale. $50k for tuition and $40k for living expenses.

He's still waiting to hear back from a couple of schools including MIT.
