    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at University of California Berkeley (Berkeley, CA).

    Interview

    Apply online and submit your resume and transcripts as well as TOEFL and GRE. No interview process. The application deadline is very early, and you must be aware of that. You'd better find some recommendation letters from a famous scientist or professors since that will be very helpful. There are number of fellowship opportunities in UCB.

    • The example of code was missing quite a bit of characters and no real answer was given when asked what the purpose of the code was.   Answer Question
