    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Wake Forest University (Winston-Salem, NC) in August 2015.

    Interview

    A 30-minute one-on-one interview where the admission officer asked some normal questions. Nothing too strange and nothing too quirky. The lady was pretty nice and it was pretty comfortable talking to her. It will be a plus to your application as long as you can answer those questions and do some research about the school.

    Teaching demonstration and research talk, interviews with faculty in the academic department, the Provost and Dean. The whole process took almost two days and is pretty grueling, but just be yourself, and people are nice, and there because they already think you're a good fit.
