Training in the Neurobiology of Neurological Disease Rating Scale for Postdoctoral Candidates

Rating Translation
1 Outstanding. One of the very best applicants I have ever met.
2 Excellent. I would eagerly take this person into my lab. I am confident that they will do very well, both as a trainee and as a professional in later years.
3 Good, although there is some flaw. Nonetheless, there is reason for optimism and I would consider taking this person into my laboratory.
4 Borderline. There is a serious flaw. One wonders if this person can succeed. Possible reevaluation at a later date (6 months from now).
5 I would not take this person and would encourage others not to do so, either.
6 Flaws that in my opinion simply cannot be overcome. Risk too high to warrant acceptance.
