Research Assistant Interview
I applied online – interviewed at Duke University.
I interviewed with multiple professors. Most professors were interested in asking me about my background. Then they each spoke about their ongoing and proposed research. I asked several questions showing interest and hopefully understanding.

There is no interview as such. One needs to apply to the Graduate School with GRE and TOEFL/IELTS scores.
