    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at University of Texas at Austin (Austin, TX) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Very task oriented. They want to know what you can do in terms of previous job tasks. Also, they take a very long time getting back to potential candidates, making it difficult to schedule interviews once they do decide who they are going to interview. Lengthy process for little payout, especially for entry level positions!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at University of Texas at Austin (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    I literally just walked into a couple of professor's offices and sent emails and find a professor to do research with pretty quickly. There was really no "interview" process, really. I don't know if any professor formally interviews their students, it seems like most professors at UT are actually quite eager to recruit students if they have room for them. I know professor's will check your file before they decide to hire you on as a graduate student.

    Interview

    If you are admitted to grad school its basically a shoo in but you are really being interviewed for your group (if you are going for natural sciences). They wine and dine you to make you feel special but its really an evaluation period.
