Should I apply?
The decision to accept a student is complicated and the applications
are looked at as a whole package with research experience and recommendation
letters bearing on the decision to accept a student along with test
scores and transcripts.
While the Ph.D. Program in COS is a new program, we expect our
accepted students will all have a GPA of 3.85 or higher and their
GRE scores will generally be in the 80th percentile and above for Quantitative and Verbal.
High scores in Analytical Writing are also required. For foreign students we would like to see a TOEFL score of 100 or
above to make sure the student will be able to communicate with
faculty and students. With this information in mind you can make
your decision of whether to apply.
