Selection Process:

Last year, I received about 75 applicants.  My goal is to assemble a group of 6 students that are academically strong, represent the geographic and school diversity, furthermore, I like to have both genders in the program.  My suggestion to an applicant is to apply to several programs (3-5) after learning about each program, then to rank the programs according to his/her priority.  I interview some of the potential applicants and definitely prefer applicants for whom my program is their first choice.
