    Interview Details

    Was selected based on application packet, there was no interview. I suppose portfolio and topicality of your work is what determines whether or not you will get matched up with faculty.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at University of Michigan in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    1. Application by online system
    2. Professor contacted by E-mail
    3. Schedule interview by Skype (for international students)
    4. One hour interview for both behavior interview and technical questions: The questions about behavior interview could be found online. The technical questions could vary based on the lab and PI's interests. It's good to look at the lab website and read more review paper in the specific field. It would help a lot.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions overall are easy to answer. However, sometimes the communication quality is so bad that makes the interview difficult because I needed to check the questions several times.   Answer Question
