Do students get a choice in what project they work on?
Last updated Feb 2, 2021, 4:08 PM
Students have the chance to express their preferences for projects as part of our matching process. Here's how that works:
- During the application, students provide information about their interests and career goals.
- After all acceptances are sent out, we use student preferences to generate a list of ~20 recommendations for projects for each student.
- Students rank these recommendations by order of preference.
- We use a matching algorithm to generate final project assignments. (In the past, about 90% of students got one of their top three choices.)
