NIH Fellowship Success Rates¶
As I'm entering the final years of graduate school, I've been applying for a few typical "pre-doc" fellowships. One of these is the NRSA, which is notorious for requiring you to wade through forests of beaurocratic documents (seriously, their "guidelines" for writing an NRSA are over 100 pages!). Doing so ends up taking a LOT of time.
Using Craigslist to compare prices in the Bay Area¶
In the last post I showed how to use a simple python bot to scrape data from Criagslist. This is a quick follow-up to take a peek at the data.
Note - data that you scrape from Craigslist is pretty limited. They tend to clear out old posts, and you can only scrape from recent posts anyway to avoid them blocking you.
