A sub-set of applicants will be selected for a faculty interview and only a sub-set of those interviewed will be recommended for admission by the Department. Students selected for an interview will be notified via e-mail November. Interviews will be conducted by a small faculty committee of 2 or 3 members and last 15-20 minutes per student. Interviews will take place in November and admission decisions will be made by November 30. We hope to notify all applicants of the Committee's recommendation (admission or denial) by December 1.
We will expect you to have a research advisor and project lined up by the end of the Fall 2013 semester, so it is a good idea to have one of your letters be from that intended faculty advisor. This will likely be one of the topics discussed during the interview.
