For PhD, go there for computer science networking research
Takes more work than you thought
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at University of Massachusetts (Amherst, MA) in December 2009.
I had a phone interview, and told that there were 10 being interviewed. I was invited to campus and given about 5 days to prepare a presentation. I presented to a group of people and then met with the person I would be working for. I was told that due to the holidays i would hear in January. I did not hear until a letter came in march that I did not get the job, which I had figured out by then.
