What we look for in prospective students


Successful applicants demonstrate excellence in substantial, independent research projects. Typically, they have engaged in research projects beginning in their sophomore year, or earlier. Long-term research projects (i.e., a minimum of one year) are preferred over multiple short-term experiences; however there is no specific prescription for the type of research or research area that makes an application competitive. Peer-reviewed publications in scientific journals are not required.
