5 days interview. On the first day- there is an introductory presentations by the program and a poster presentation.

In these interviews they try to gauge your critical understanding of a subject matter. After those single interviews you are supposed to go back to those groups in order to interact with them and find out what they are working on.

Depending on that you have to go back to those group leaders and try to find out if you are their priority or not.
