Not all students in all programs will possess the capabilities necessary to undertake certain projects that may be proposed by critics. This information should be taken into consideration when you rank your choices on the lottery ballot. Please note that appropriate background means that you are currently enrolled in a degree program in this discipline, or previously obtained a degree in this discipline.
