    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Purdue University (West Lafayette, IN) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Had submitted application for PhD. The professor who interviewed me had already emailed me saying that he was very impressed with my profile, and wanted to have a short conversation to discuss my interests. The interview was more about how interested I was about working in his group, rather than to check if I met his requirements. The interview was satisfying, and I was offered admission and a university fellowship a couple of days later.
