Interview

The interview process was long and endurance driven but it had to be done. I was interviewed by the whole lab and then finally spoke with the professor. He was nice and polite and very detailed about the project that I was about to embark.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at University of Toronto (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in January 2011.

    Interview

    I was a master student working in the same lab. So for me there wasn't any interview. But based on other colleagues, you do need to have outstanding grades or publications in order to get an interview opportunity. The interview includes a talk with the professor, and usually lunch with the current lab members. Both are important.

    Interview

    The undergraduate grade is important (GPA: at least 3.4 out of 4.0). Getting accepted into the program is not difficult, but finding a supevisor with funding is the tricky part. A good way to find out which professor has the most funding is perform a manual search on publication database (e.g. PubMed) and see who has the most publications in the past 3 - 5 years. Pick out 2 - 3 professor that has the highest productivity, and go for the one that you have interest and experience in.
