    I applied online. I interviewed at Dartmouth.

    Interview

    It's almost the same thing to apply for graduate schools. You take GRE, Sub and write personal statement and apply. No interview. There's campus visit for us students. No such thing for international students, so you have to learn more about this place by yourself.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dartmouth (Hanover, NH) in March 2007.

    Interview

    HR contacted me about their interview offer. Setting up a time was easy, but for some reason, the interviewer had a hard time finding a place to interview me because the center was located in a remote place while their real buidling was newly being constructed. I found the interview to be simple and straightforward.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    HR is not as efficient as it appears to be at the time of your interview. So be wary of your salary. In case of receiving an hourly offer, be sure to ask about overtime as a first thing. Otherwise, you won't get the overtime opportunity.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Dartmouth (Hanover, NH) in August 2012.

    Interview

    There were three days of training, during which you learned the basics on the Rassias method. Then, on the third day, you had to pretend that your fellow competitors were your Spanish class, and you had to teach them according to this method. After about a ten-minute "pretend" Spanish class, you sat down and acted like a student for your fellow competitors. The whole process took no longer than one hour, and the professors typically took the full weekend to decide who they wanted to teach for them.
