  1. I received a mail from a faculty member requesting for a Skype interview. Can someone help me out with what kind of questions I am to expect from them? What are the things I need to look up at beforehand? This is the first interview I have received so I would much appreciate if ya'll could drop some tips. Thank you!!!
  2. Hi, I have been invited to do a Skype interview with a professor at Cornell Tech for the M.Eng in Computer Science. I was wondering what kind of interview it will be and what kind of questions I can expect? The only information I got in the email from the admissions department was that I should be prepared to answer technical questions about my experience in computer science. What do you think they mean by that? They also mentioned that the interview will only take between 15 - 30 minutes. If anyone has some experience, then I would be grateful if you could share your advice and experience.
  3. Hi, I'm an international applicant for Ph.D. program and the most absurd thing happened (at least I think it's absurd). One of the programs I applied for sent me an interview invitation early January. Since I was working and was living in a foreign country, decided to opt for skype interview. The admission coordinator sent me an email saying that he'll be in touch. I have not heard from him until February (even after the planned visiting interview day) so I've sent him a reminder. Only then he sent me a professor's email saying professor xx will be interviewing you ccing the professor. Then the interviewer sent me an email saying "can you interview tmr, or the day after tmr?" I couldn't because it was so last minute and the time difference between the two cities are 15 hours (the interviewer didn't seem to mind this either). Anyways, I sent him an alternative date and we decided to interview the next week and the time was 3 A.M. for me because the professor was only available then. I was not happy this whole process but the most absurd thing was that the interviewer did not show up for the interview, did not reply to the email that I sent after 30 minutes of waiting until 3 days after the interview, sent me an email after 3 days saying "the mistake is on me. Are you available tomorrow?" By this time, I already had an offer so I decided to withdraw from the program so I sent him email saying that I wish to be removed from the admission pool. Even after sending this email (which I didn't get a reply), a week later, I received email from another professor saying that I'm waitlisted for the program. Now I have to send an email again saying that I'm withdrawing from the wait list... Sorry for the long writing but I had to give you the whole story. My question is this: Should I let the admissions committee about this? (not being interviewed because the professor in charge did not show up) I don't think rest of the committee including the POI I applied for know about this... I feel like I'm mistreated because I'm an international applicant and that they did not care about giving me equal opportunity to be part of the admission. Another concern is that since my field is so small, I may run into the "interviewer" in the future. Would I make a fuss out of something small that may harm me in the future? I want to know your thoughts on this.... Thanks for reading such a long "question."
  4. After a Skype interview with a professor, she said she would get back to me by the end of the week (I am assuming about a formal in person interview) but she did not get back to me then or the week after. Is it okay if I email her and ask for an update. I know it is a no but I just wish she would formally say she is not inviting me.
  5. Hi everyone, So tomorrow I am Skyping with my POI at a program I've been accepted to. I've had consistent contact with her throughout the application process, since I've been admitted, etc. She wanted to give me the opportunity to ask more questions about the program and discuss funding during this conversation. I have not yet accepted the offer as I am still waiting on several responses and considering my options, but right now this program is at the top of my list. What types of questions should I ask that could help me make a decision? I am certainly interested in learning more about my funding options, TAships, opportunities to attend conferences, etc. Would it be appropriate to ask her things like where grad students typically live, or other more logistical information, or would that be something I should ask other grad students? Also, as I have not yet accepted the offer, how can I politely say that I'm still considering my options, but there's a good possibility I'll be attending this school? I will not be able to attend the admitted students weekend for this program, so I want to be sure I make the most of this conversation and get as many questions answered as I can. Let me know what you think!
  6. Hi, I have been invited for a skype interview for the Ph.d. program in Chemistry at the University of South Carolina. The email came from the graduate office. I wonder what type of interview I have to face? They mention faculty member but didn't provide me any name. If anyone experienced it before, please kindly share with me. Thanks.
