    In person, a graduate student asked me what my strengths were as a programmer, and examples of how I put it to use. Also checked various skills such as first order logic.

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in October 2009.

    Interview

    Initially, I was very nervous to go on this interview as a number of my friends at school had undergone the process and not been offered positions. The interview consisted of three thirty-minute interviews plus a group exercise. I was there from about 11:30am until 5pm. I think overall, the interview was challenging. Be ready to answer many behavioral-based questions.
