Dear Ph.D. Students:

Attached is a brief description of the new curriculum requirements as 
well as the PhD Qualifying Exam.
We are working on a detailed description of the implementation of the 
qualifier process which should
be available in January.

We prefer that all students who were recently admitted and who have not 
yet attempted the qualifiers
choose this new format. Please be thinking about your research area of 
interest for the qualifier and
start preparing early....

Let me know if you have any immediate questions - but please wait for a 
couple of weeks or so to
see the detailed document describing the qualifier process and the exact 
details on how it will be implemented.

Thanks and happy holidays!

Raj Sunderraman
