I applied online and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at University of Pennsylvania in April 2010.

Interview Details – In the first interview 2 interviewers called me, and three weeks later another interviewer called me. I answer the questions well. They said I have been put into the matching process few days after the second interview. However, it takes more than a month for them to tell me there is no strong match.

Interview Question – How to find the least common ancestor for a tree?   Answer Question
