    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Rockefeller University (Ann Arbor, MI) in March 2019.

    Interview

    The interview process was very clear cut. I was invited to a first round interview where they asked simple questions like what my research interests were and to describe my lab and class experience in these areas. They were also very receptive with questions I had about the program in general. However, just note, they are more interested in you showing knowledge of the bigger picture beyond the experiment, the 'why are you doing this experiment' , and 'what is this experiment doing for the project as a whole', than hearing you list a bunch of processes you can do in the lab.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe your research interests?   Answer Question
    • How have you gained experience in this area through both classwork and lab work.   Answer Question
