    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Colorado State University (Fort Collins, CO) in December 2011.

    Interview

    It basically started of with talking to one of the professors regrading courses and all. After that when I learned he had a position in his research team I went to him and asked him directly if I could work with him. After that it was all about talking about the expectations from each other and what we were expecting out of this.

    I met with the professor I wanted to work for. He offered me a position that day. Make sure you know about their work and make sure you are able to hold a conversation with them about it.
