An admissions committee assesses a variety of factors to determine admission offers. Our goal is to build a balanced cohort that satisfies departmental needs as well as diversity in gender, ethnicity, geographic origin and more. We strive to admit applicants who we believe will excel in all aspects of graduate work including coursework, comprehensive and qualifying exams, and most importantly independent research.
