    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Duke University.

    Interview

    Everything is decided by the PI, not the committee because of the culture. First will be contacting the PI with emails, after you will have a personal meeting with the PI. If the background matches, you will get the oral admission in the same day. The official admission will arrive in a couple of months.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Duke University (Durham, NC) in April 2010.

    Interview

    There is no interview as such. One needs to apply to the Graduate School with GRE and TOEFL/IELTS scores. The admission depends upon the academic background, relevant skills and prior research experience. Luck play a role here as well. The professor should have a vacancy in his/her group and availability of funds is crucial!
