    Pros

    University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine is one of the best schools for doing a PhD in microbiology and immunology. The professors care about the students' well-being and research progress. There are resources for mental health issues. You can live comfortably with the stipend provided. Facilities and breadth of research are particularly excellent. Pittsburgh is also a great city to live in! There are plenty of parks around and lots of events happening specially during the summer.

    Can't really think of any right now

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at University of Pittsburgh (Pittsburgh, PA) in January 2020.

    Interview

    Lots of great communication with he hiring manager. However, many more finalists that what would be considered typical were brought on campus for in-person interviews. Don't forget, academic interviews are often all day and include multiple small group interviews.
