Selection criteria

Applications are assessed by the Panama Field Study Semester professors against multiple subjective criteria, including the following:

  • Cumulative grade point average;
  • Program and year of study;
  • Proficiency in Spanish;
  • Successful completion of an appropriate course in statistics;
  • A careful reading of the applicant's letter of intent.

Because the pool of applicants varies from year to year, the relative weighting of these criteria may also vary from year to year.
