    Interview Details

    You are not required to take an interview. Teaching assistant decisions are made with offer to to attend graduate program. Decisions made by your individual department, then ratified by the graduate school. If you receive an offer of admission you will be a teaching assistant unless you are also offered a fellowship to attend. This will relieve you of teaching assistant duties and allow you more time to focus on your work.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at UNC Chapel Hill in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Apply online. Arrive early because parking can be an issue. Initial in-person interview was with 3 people- the team leads and their manager. Second in- person interview was with 10 team members. All were welcoming, informative, and professional. During both, interviewers took turns asking scripted questions. Be prepared- their questions cover a wide range and are behavioral event interview style questions. They all allowed me to ask questions and answered them openly.
