  3. Review & Selection Process:  Upon receiving your application materials, your application will be carefully reviewed. Applicants will then be assigned to one of three categories: accepted, rejected, or waitlisted. Students who are waitlisted may be asked to interview with the Recruitment Team. Applicants will be chosen by the strength of their academic history and past leadership experiences, demonstrated interest in GenTech’s topics, and ability to collaboratively solve problems in a team setting.
