Please rate the applicant in each of the following categories, using the scale of 1 (top) to 6 (bottom). Use the entire scale, assuming that we are likely to support applicants in the top half of the range (i.e. from 1 to 3). Click here for the rating scale descriptions.
|1||Outstanding. One of the very best applicants I have ever met.|
|2||Excellent. I would eagerly take this person into my lab. I am confident that they will do very well, both as a trainee and as a professional in later years.|
|3||Good, although there is some flaw. Nonetheless, there is reason for optimism and I would consider taking this person into my laboratory.|
|4||Borderline. There is a serious flaw. One wonders if this person can succeed. Possible reevaluation at a later date (6 months from now).|
|5||I would not take this person and would encourage others not to do so, either.|
|6||Flaws that in my opinion simply cannot be overcome. Risk too high to warrant acceptance.|
