    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Georgia State University.

    Interview Details

    I was already a Master's student for one year when I applied. There are orientations and tours for the out-of-towners, but I didn't attend those since I already worked there. Applicants are divided into groups based on their subject area concentrations. There were two rounds of group interviews, meaning multiple applicants and faculty members in each session. A faculty member asks a question, and each applicant responds in order. A little unnerving, as you have to commit or worry about one-upsmanship; there is an unfair advantage to the first or last in line, depending on how you look at it.

    Interview Questions
    • What do you plan to do after getting your PhD? This is a difficult question and really not appropriate: PhDs are long and they typically change your career outlook, depending on how you adapt to the academic research world.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation for graduate students. It's a stipend, not a salary really.
