Admissions

Traditional admissions criteria can unintentionally select against women and underrepresented minorities. Making decisions that select for students who will succeed and become productive scientists calls for a more holistic look at these important decisions. A student’s path, ability to persevere and self-assess are important to success, and should be considered along with knowledge of physics and mathematics.
