    Graduate Research Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    Interviews occur by phone or not at all. Very different from other universities that have a more strenuous interview/vetting process for students. I think this is a problem with Purdue's graduate student recruitment.

    Interview

    Easy, there was no interview at all. The chemistry department trusts all students and gives them a teaching job if their research professor is not paying them a research assistantship.
