Michael Bernstein-At Miami, I learned theory and methods inside and out, but I also learned softer skills that are just as important but not necessarily the things I thought about when I was applying for grad school. Skills like collaborating with others, juggling multiple projects and responsibilities, picking service opportunities, how to recode letters from editors after submitting to a journal.

There are many collaborations across labs and I really felt that I was a part of a large and intellectually stimulating group.
