    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Northern Arizona University.

    Interview

    Submitted an application to the University for the PhD Program. Was accepted but only after they offered me a paying position while other universities offered me free tuition. If I had known about the near double cost of living expenses in Flagstaff I would have turned them down for a more urban environment where the option to work outside of the University was viable.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Northern Arizona University.

    Interview

    I found the position open on Jobs for Jacks (site for students to find jobs). I emailed the main coordinator saying I was interested in applying and asked for the application, then I filled out the detailed application with a few long questions (asking about how you deal with conflicts, etc.). A faculty member of NAU that I was in a program with sent in a recommendation for me, though I don't think it's necessary. I was asked in for an interview and it was a basic process. Questions about why I think I'm right for the job, my past experience, classic interview questions.
