    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Northeastern University in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview was held by Tatayana. I had a wonderful interview experience. I was asked to solve a sum on Molarity which was not very straight forward. I had to think for a while and apply the necessary basics I studied in my under graduation. At the end I cracked the sum and was appreciated for the same. Also we had a general talk about my experience in the field of pharmacy.

    Interview Questions
    • The sum had a few tricky parts and I was caught up in that for a while but later was able to deduce the answer.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Application to graduate school usually requires face to face interviews. So situations vary a lot.
    When she asked me a lot about materials science, I really do not know too much about material systems. I tried my best to memorize from my internship about manufacturing and machining experience and also try to account for from the perspective of mechanics. It worked
