PART VIIIa. Research Statement
Your research experience is a very important consideration in the admission process. The Research Statement should be an approximately one-page description of your previous research experience, including details of the project, what you did, what you learned, and the significance of the work. If you do not have research experience, you can use this statement to explain why and elaborate on your desire to be a scientist and other characteristics that make you suitable for Ph.D. training.
