    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The University of Kansas (Lawrence, KS).

    Interview

    It was a multiple interview setting where you walk into a room with three tables and interview at each table with different people to get approval. It was a bit confusing because you could hear other applicants interviewing at the other tables while you were trying to answer questions at your own table.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at The University of Kansas.

    Interview

    After seeing research posters in a visitation symposium, we all submitted top 5 professors that you are interested in talking to. They organized interviews for the following day in 20 minute intervals where each potential student would meet 1 on 1 with each advisor to talk about research, experience and other general questions pertaining to your CV.
    Relatively simple, very informative and low stress.
