And some non-technical stuff:
To prospective students: admission process is handled by the committee that will take into consideration only applications that are properly received by the Graduate School; the decisions are based on traditional indicators of academic achievement (grades, GRE scores, etc.), publications and recommendation letters. Unfortunately, the shear number of emails we receive asking about WINLAB graduate program and GA/RA positions makes it impossible to reply to personally; Please direct all such inquires to "gradadm (at) rci . rutgers . edu".
