Please note:

  • One critical element we are not able to quantify here is the completion of major preparation requirements. Click in the major name below to see the courses you should pursue towards a specific major.
  • An asterisk [*] next to a major name below indicates that the number of applications to this major greatly exceeds the space available. In most cases, this means that both the GPAs and completion of preparatory coursework from successful applicants tend to exceed the overall average.
