Each year, the CogSci faculty review applications for new graduate students, and they invite some of the most stand-out applicants to our Open House. This visit allows prospective grad students a chance to experience our department — they meet lots of faculty and grad students, they see our labs and campus, and they get a taste of San Diego (literally and figuratively).

Most students figure it's hard, but going in it's not obvious why.
