Special note for international applicants

For most international applicants, the most important determinant for admission is the willingness of an affiliated professor to take the student on and support him/her. This is highly dependent on the availability of time on the part of the professor, and on the match between the student's interest and capabilities (technical and communications) and the interests of the professor.
