What criteria is used when deciding whom is given an invitation to pledge?
There is no pre-set image of the ideal candidate as we recognize the different contributions that various individuals can make. However, we are still looking for highly motivated scholars that not only work well independently, but within a group as well. Potential, as well as present qualities, is a determining factor in the selection process. Some factors we take into consideration are professional aptitude, past successes, willingness to learn, passion, and social compatibility.
