    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at North Carolina State University (Raleigh, NC) in June 2013.

    Interview

    I just walked in my professor's office and talked to him about my previous research and express my interest in joining his lab. He then said he will give me funding and showed me around the lab. He is easy going person but pushes a lot in research. He requires that I need to finish 3 publications during my PhD here. And I got only part RA part TA position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at North Carolina State University in May 2010.

    Interview

    The interview was with four faculty on the search committee. The individuals were very tense, which made the interview itself very uncomfortable. I was asked questions about my current and future research interests, what faculty's research I might be able to contribute to, and why I was interested in NC State over other universities.
