  • Originally applied to the PhD program. They said I could be accepted into the Master's program with the option of going for my PhD after two years. I applied right out of undergrad, so not surprising. 4.0 GPA, division I athlete, presented at ISA-South, in the process of co-authoring a paper. I probably won't go here, seeing as I already have an acceptance to a PhD program with full funding, but I was excited to have been accepted nonetheless. Good luck to everyone!
