    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, MD).

    Interview

    The interview spans two days. There will be 5-10 other candidates interviewing with you. You will meet one-on-one with 5-8 professors, mostly of your own choosing (arranged by the department administrator beforehand via email). They will ask about your education, research experience, career goals and other interests. You will have dinner at a professor's home with some of the other candidates. Not only do they want to make sure that you are intelligent and hardworking, but also that you get along with people and carry an interesting conversation. During lunches and a poster session there will be many opportunities to interact with the graduate students who are already in the program. They will also be making note of whether or not you are asking good questions and if you seem like someone they would like to work with. Be sure to ask graduate students about what they like/don't like about the school and/or the professors they work with.

    Interview Questions

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Johns Hopkins University.

    Interview

    It was a pretty standard interview. The only part that through me off was how disengaged the interviewer (hiring manager) was with her body language. Although the conversation was fairly normal and fluid, she never really looked at me. Her body was twisted away from me, she spent the entire time fidgeting with a desktop toy. She said they would be making a decision in two weeks. I took six weeks for a response. I was advised during the interview that everything takes longer than expected with it comes to HR, so it was not too much of a surprise.

    Interview Questions

    • I was given a complex claim issue and was asked to map out the steps and resources I would use to resolve the specific issue.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I told them during the interview my expected salary, which was within their starting salary.
