Ok, I'll be returning for a 2 week vacation in February. There was some interest in the talk I once presented to IMU students on the process of getting into a US training program. So, this will be a short, shameless ad:
If there are students out there who are keen (phase I or II), just drop me a line, and make arrangements for a lecture hall for an hour, and I'll be more than happy to give the talk, whether Bkt. Jalil or Seremban. I still have the powerpoint file.
