"My recommendation to any student is to take advantage of this opportunity. It will be of great benefit for you and it will help you in many different ways. To me it was of great importance because it was my very first experience doing research and I also had the opportunity to present my work in local and national conferences, among other things.
As part of the program, you will have the opportunity to prepare the GRE, visit other universities and to know about their graduate programs, on top of acquiring a great experience that will add a significant value to your resume.
Finally, the relevance of being part of the "Fall program" is that you will be able to demonstrate that you not only have the potential to be a good researcher, but also a good student. That is where we show once again that we are capable of getting a degree in any institution in the US, and that the language will not be a barrier."
