    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Michigan.

    Interview

    I applied, they gave me an offer. I visited. I didn't get interviewed to get in at all.
    The visit weekend is very nice and seemingly lavish. They put you in a hotel from Thursday night all the way through Sunday morning. They pay for your flight for the visit. There's a lot of discovering the faculty during this time so that you can mull over or contact a faculty adviser before you enroll. Each department differs in their process of how grad students get assigned or chosen thesis advisers.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at University of Michigan.

    Interview

    The interview includes phone call. It really depends on whom you are interviewing for. And it varies from professor to professor. I have had excellent experience. The phone call included talking to the advisor on the phone and describing the projects that you are currently involved and have done previously.

    Interview

    It was a few years back but over all it is pretty simple-- should be no probem especially if you have been practicing mock interviews/ interviewing for actual internships/job outside of work study campus jobs. Questions will range from general to sceanrios you could encounter at the facility. Basically checking for common sense.

    The interview process was straight-forward. Interviewer was kind and tried to make it an comfortable environment, which I really appreciated. Also, I was asked some specific questions regarding the research position that I was applying for, not so much to test my knowledge, but to gauge my interest in the area of research.
