    Speak with different professors to find a match for a project. It is important to find a good match for professor, subject matter, and lab group. It is important to match well with your professor since they can determine how the next couple of years working for them will be. Do you want a hands-on professor or someone who lets you work on your own?

    Usually, you need to reach out to the professor at the very beginning.
    Take courses with the professor you are interested in working with. Be active in the class.
    Then, try to use the opportunity of the course term project to make an impression with the professor.
    Get a paper out of it if possible.
    As long as the both you and your professor feel great working with one another, I am sure you will get the GRA position!

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Georgia Tech (Atlanta, GA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    First you apply online through the Buzzport portal. Usually a committee of new faculty reviews your application, which includes GRE scores, undergrad transcripts, and your research experience as an undergrad. I think there were also some personal essays too. Then it usually takes 1 to 2 months to hear if you are accepted. If you are, of course you would come in August, and at that time you have approximately 1 and a half months to decide on your faculty advisor. However, many students email the professors as soon as they are accepted to get an idea of who they would like to work with beforehand.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Georgia Tech (Atlanta, GA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Since this was a graduate student position, you just apply online. After acceptance there is a recruitment event in which new potential graduate students get the opportunity to meet with senior grads/postdocs and advisors. Individual meetings are set up for advisors you are interested in. Generally you will meet with the advisor, and separately with their students. Expect to hear back pretty quickly (~1 week).
