    Basically it is the same as applying for PhD position in any other universities. You take GRE, submit application with personal statement, which details your research goal. It is better to know the faculty in advance or at least know their work by reading papers or contacting them directly. They will call you if interested.

    Interview Details

    As I was enrolled as an international graduate student, the communication was mainly through emails and phone calls. There were two phone interviews (it may differ across departments) and the questions were focused on my prior research experience with a few technical details. Generally the university treat their student employees nicely, but the working environment and culture vary widely by department.
