Our target field size is 40 teams, though it will depend on the quality and breadth of applications received.
Teams for Golden State are comprised of a minimum of 7 students, up to a maximum of 19 students (plus backups)
Applications are evaluated by committee, and we strive to create a diverse field of teams from across California. Other than automatic entries, no one factor is being prioritized. The committee looks for historically strong programs, emerging programs, geographic diversity, and application thoroughness/thoughtfulness when evaluating potential teams.
