I worked at Arizona State University part-time
Best research facilities, good atmosphere to interact and learn many new things!
Weather could be harsh in the summers, make sure to protect the skin from UV irradiation.
I applied online. I interviewed at Arizona State University.
They flew me out for an on-campus visit. The interview(s) consisted of casual meetings with most of the faculty and some time spent with other graduate students. I'm not sure if it was valuable to put candidates through a gauntlet-style round of 30-minute conversations covering many of the same topics when these could have been done as small group meetings, affording the time for more substantive discussions and experience on campus.
