Supposedly they do, but it is fairly rare and they won't like it very much unless you can really convince them it's a good idea. If you could find some way to do it in a department like BE, I'd say you stand a somewhat better chance. On the other hand, once you're in, they're not going to throw you out. It's just a matter of getting yourself in...Originally posted by Fixed Gear
I think UPenn allows you to get a PhD in any PhD-granting department. I could be (and prolly am) wrong, so Neuronix would be the guy to answer that one.
