    Postbaccalaureate IRTA Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at NIH (Bethesda, MD) in September 2016.

    Interview

    The hardest part was applying individually to a number of investigators. The number of rejections is overwhelming but usually related to lack of an open position or funding at the time. Once I got positive responses the interview was more about me making sure the investigator would make a good mentor during my time at NIH.
