Admission to the graduate program in neuroscience is via the common admissions process used by all applicants to any of the seven Ph.D. granting programs in the biomedical sciences. Whether the student selects biomedical sciences or neuroscience, the application is reviewed by the same committee and formal entry into neuroscience does not occur until the spring semester of the first year.
Admission is highly competitive; we receive many more applications than we have positions available. Upper-level coursework in the sciences, math and/or engineering is strongly recommended. Competitive applicants have STEM GPAs of 3.5 or higher, GRE scores greater than 300 and a strong record of research experiences both in quantity and quality. Applications are reviewed holistically. We consider the applicant’s ability to be successful in our curriculum and potential to develop into a scientist.
