    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at University of Wisconsin-Madison.

    Interview

    There was only one interview after the application. Interview was just over an hour long and included both behavioral questions and questions about background/qualifications. Nothing out of the ordinary. After that it took several weeks to hear back, but that was largely due to the fact that the interview occurred at the end of the school year and the notifications were not sent out until summer.
