The Application Review Process
All applicants receive careful consideration from a faculty-student admissions committee, which reviews applications and meets early in the spring semester to evaluate the candidates. The entire faculty reviews the committee’s recommendations and makes the final decision about which candidates are offered admission. Decisions are based on the quality of the applicants, the fit of their interests with departmental specialization and expertise, and on the distribution of students by specialty areas. The number of students we admit is determined by the availability of funds to support them. In recent years incoming classes have averaged between 10 and 12 students selected from a very large applicant pool.
