    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at University of California Berkeley in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    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.
