I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at University of California Berkeley.
Dependent on department. Application process was rigorous for bioengineering. Need research experience in undergrad or some time of summer research experience. Any prior publications are looked upon favorably. Rec letters are also very important, with research letters having higher weight than letters from a prof you just took a class with.

Apply to the school, to the department in which you want to study. Make your application as competitive as possible. In our department, you specify a few PI's who you'd want to work with, and they get a copy of your application (if you make some initial cut). Then, they will decide if they want to have you come in for an 'informal' interview. This was my experience.
