    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Duke University (Durham, NC) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was conducted by the professor whom I am working with right now. Overall, the process was nice and smooth. Most the questions I was asked during the interview process were behavior questions. And also, I gave a presentation in front of all the group members of the group I was applying for. They were all friendly and asked some technical questions about my previous research projects.
