    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at MIT.

    Interview

    The process was challenging. Make sure you know what the research group does and can demonstrate that your prior knowledge will be useful to the group. Be courteous to the Professors and always follow up with an email after your interview to reiterate your interest.
