Thank you for this JeffSalton,

Since this program is fully funded at a great school, I imagine it can be quite competitive. Does the program value certain attributes from applicants such as research projects, publications,  and work experience? Would you say this has been required or highly sought out in the past? 

Thank you for any other advice you can offer for someone who is very interested in this program for the future.
