I submitted my references online and at the time of my interview I was expected to have a letter from my university saying that I was returning to school in the fall.

    I interviewed over Google Hangouts and there were two interviewers. I was asked only 6 questions where I was asked about my skills, work history, and asked to give answers relating to my work and academic past. I was not asked any situational questions.
