The interview lasted nearly an hour and consisted mostly of discussions of my dissertation research. The questions began very abstractly, as the committee wanted to see how I could think philosophically on my feet and connect my work to broader disciplinary issues.

They left me much time to ask questions about the program and job, and answered all of them happily and thoroughly.No OfferDifficult Interview
