    Former Intern - Summer Researcher in Lexington, VA

    I worked at Washington and Lee as an intern (less than a year)


    Great Environment, great sense of community within Lexington and the University
    Paid, although very little
    Intellectual Environment, great opportunities for personal growth


    Lexington tends to have very little to offer when students are not in town, lots of floating the river, watching television.
    Work tended to be very individualized by professor, if you have a bad one or uninteresting project, it could be a long summer.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Washington and Lee in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    Interview was mostly behavioral and fit based. You have to submit an application by the end of Fall Term detailing the reasons you want to do research the following summer. Generally speaking, the more professors you know and network with the better shot you have at getting a grant from the University. Before and during the application process you should be visiting professors you are interested in doing research with.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question asked was what specific skills I could bring to the lab. As a freshman, I didn't have many skills so I had to emphasize my willingness and enthusiasm to learn.   Answer Question
