VIP Team Application

I understand
VIP teams are large, with at least 8-10 students each semester. *
Students are not allowed to audit the course. VIP students are graded in three equally weighted areas: documentation (individual notebook + team-level documentation); teamwork; and contributions. *
VIP applicants are not screened by GPA, interviews, resumes, or letters of recommendations. While this may seem counterintuitive, many years of experience have shown enthusiasm to be the strongest predictor of success in VIP. *
If you have any questions about these aspects of VIP, we are happy to talk to you about them. Please see our contact page at
