    I have been working at South Dakota State (More than a year)

    Pros

    The school is very supportive of students attending professional development and scientific conferences. In addition, the graduate community is very supportive and rather close-knit despite its diversity.

    Cons

    There is a lack of more expensive equipment, but with proper scheduling, this can be evaded.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at South Dakota State (Brookings, SD) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Luckily, I had the advantage of being on good terms with the PI prior to the interview. I had discussed the possibility of continuing my hourly work into a graduate project and led to our formal discussion concerning my project. I was allowed my input as well as time to reflect on the proposed work and can honestly say it was a great experience. However, I recognize it doesn't compare at all to an interview setting in industry, of which I am sure would be more formal and strenuous.
