Among the criteria used to select Management Fellows are college entrance test scores, high school class rank, extracurricular activities, and work experience. During the personal interview, the applicant should demonstrate motivation and personal characteristics that will enable successful completion on both of the course and internship requirements of the DePauw Management Fellows Program.
