Average Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at University of Maryland (College Park, MD) in Feb 2016

Interview

Interview for School Counseling program consisted of a full day including an equity small group discussion, Q&A, small group interview, and writing sample. Gives very good information about the program itself. Small group interview was interesting in that it only consisted of the interviewer asking questions one at a time and going around to speak. I would recommend making sure you look like a team player in the small group interview, rather than just talking to get a word in. Personally, I made sure to comment on others' contributions as well.

Interview

Apply to the Graduate School by the application deadline provining all required documents. Do not try to reach out to random faculty members if you do not have previous interaction. Highlight the research experience in your CV and statement of purpose.

Interview Questions
  • If you get a phone interview they might ask you some details of the research experience you have. And in general test your communication skills if you are not a native speaker.

Interview

The most important aspect of the interview process is to ensure alignment between the adviser's work and student's research interests. If the student's interests diverge from those of the potential adviser's, it is crucial that the student verify that his or her research goals can be accommodated under the particular professor's mentor-ship and funding scheme.

I interviewed at University of Maryland (College Park, MD) in Mar 2010

Interview

Got an email scheduling phone interviews in March. They suggested to use skype. The faculty member was very nice and we briefly discussed our research. But since the professor was not working in that particular area. I focused on the methods and the generous results. Finally, he asked if I have any questions about the graduate program or the university
