Does anyone know how SULI's selection process works? On the application you list your top two choices for labs; does your application get sent to those two labs for the mentors to pick or is there some sort of prescreening by the DOE? Thanks.
I was a SULI intern last year. I know that my application was sent to the place I ended up working (my first choice), and my supervisor chose me out of the bunch. From what I know, I think your application is also sent to your second-choice institution as well, and either one can pick you but the first place takes precedence. I don't think there's any pre-screening by the DOE, but only to make sure you have the minimum GPA and such.
