    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American University (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    one in person interview with three people, lasted one hour,a variety of substantive and skills based questions were asked. It was not a stress interview. One problem, though, was that I did not meet my future supervisor at the interview because she was on maternity leave.
