Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at McGill University (Montreal, QC (Canada)).

Interview

Had the chance to meet the professor for whom I worked during an internship of my MSc. It's always a good idea to know the Prof before actually applying. Once he said that he wanted me to stay, we discussed the research topic in more detail and submitted a formal application through McGill website.
