Preferred Program of Interest

BSTP students rotate in labs in several different PhD programs and select a PhD program in December of their first year. Other applicants prefer to join a specific PhD program from the outset. Those applicants should select a single Preferred Program of Interest in the online BSTP application. If you join CWRU using this option, your advising, laboratory rotations, and other curricular experiences will be within that program.
