Application Details

I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Vanderbilt University.

Interview Details

Submission of application and interviews that was one day long. The questions asked was not out of the ordinary. Just a discussion regarding your previous research experience and interests similarly to what other schools would also ask during their interview process. The application is also free online so that the application costs are not prohibitive.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Nashville, TN
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Vanderbilt University in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Was recruited at a career fair. Very open and emphasized the environment on campus. Applied online. Was invited to visit (paid for). Met with 4 professors who each interviewed me 1:1 for at least 30 minutes each. were looking for specific interests and how you would fit in with their lab and the department itself. Very open and laid back community but a lot of politics involved. Range of workers from very lazy to insanely busy.

    The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Vanderbilt University in March 2007.

    Interview Details

    The BRET office spent a lot of time telling us general information about the university and medical center, background on the IGP program. We then had a series of one-on-one interviews with selected faculty members, who told us about their own research and asked questions about our experience. interests, and our applications. We were chaperoned by 1st year students who were available for questions and we had meals with other senior grad students.
