    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Isis Pharmaceuticals.

    Interview

    I applied online, and the entire process took one month. I was interviewed by one of the project mentor by phone and got questions mainly from my resume, i.e. what type of research I have worked on, etc. We also discussed the summer project and how to accomplish it. The interview lasts for 30min and was very enjoyable.
