Hi all,

Apologies for the clutter.

Two clarifications about the survey below:

- The survey is for Grads & Postdocs, and does not concern Undergrads, who are nevertheless invited to socialize in the coffee hour.

- When ranking your interest level in the survey - 1 marks your first, i.e., highest priority.

We are sorry that wasn't clearly indicated.

Thank you very much for your input!

On a side note, GAPS wants to remind you that today is world mental health day. Since people in our line of work tends to be under a great deal of stress (trust us, we know), we want to remind you that there is a wonderful comunity of people that understands what you are going through.
