Do I need to secure a Lab/Thesis Supervisor prior to applying?

You will not need to secure a research supervisor prior to applying. Incoming students usually do 2-4 lab rotations during their first year.  Information on the rotation process can be found on the following website.  If you realize a few weeks into a rotation that the lab is not a good fit for you, then there is no reason for you to stay any longer.
