    Interview

    The interview was held on campus through the university. It seemed as if they did not have any positions open that they were interviewing for. They said they would get back to people but they never did.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Milliken.

    Interview

    Fairly typical PhD interview process: dinner the night before with full day interview the following day. Started the morning with the 1 hr research seminar, then ~8 one-on-one interviews. As the day went on, it seemed that every person had technical questions to ask me that were not related to my field of research. Felt like they were constantly "rattling my cage" and at times felt a significant amount of pressure and tension during the interviews. Lots of "go to the whiteboard" moments as well.

    Interview Questions
