I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at University of Texas at Austin (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2011.
I was initially contacted within two days of applying via email. We scheduled an interview within two weeks for the position. After the interview a decision was rendered after 3 weeks. I was interviewed by the director of the program in his office. Very friendly encounter that was more of a running dialogue than hard pressed questions. The work culture was very relaxed.

Online application, followed by two interviews months later, and a job offer.
- I can't remember any that were particularly difficult or unexpected. It was not a trick question kind of environment. Answer Question
