I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at University of California Berkeley in January 2013.

Interview Details – They just asked me about hours, how familiar I was with the research (like classes I took that related). They asked about my workload and how much I was involved in campus because that could have conflicting time interests. It went alright. They also explained what I would be doing.
