I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Ohio State University in December 2013.
Interview Details – The interview was by committee with five managers. Be prepared. They have standardized questions that each of the members ask. Most of the questions were behavioral. There is also three role playing questions.
The role playing is based on how you think through a problem. I didn't do well on one of the questions; actually missed it completely. The real reason they do it is to see how you think things through. Getting it right or wrong isn't the point.
Interview Question – The second role playing question dealt with a pop-up blocker. The interviewer acted like a customer that couldn't make a response to a forum. Answer Question

Interview Details – Once you take your math placement test to see where you stand going into your freshmen year of school, if your score is high enough, the math center coordinator may contact you asking for you to apply. You will fill out the simple application and they will review and get back to you about the interview. If selected, you go in to the math center for your interview and they will have a one-on-one interview session with you to access your math abilities.
