    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at University of Minnesota (Saint Paul, MN) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Casual, roundtable, me and three professors. They asked me what I was interested in and left it very open for me to talk about my interests. I went to talk to different labs and professors. They reviewed my GRE scores and college transcript. Because I took 2 years off between undergraduate school and graduate school we talked about this gap as well.
