Red Flags To Look For at Your Interviews


Recommended Posts

I was browsing /r/gradadmissions as I've got a handful of interviews for rolling my MS over into a PhD lined up in the next few months and someone asked about something I had never considered before.


I really hope this Gerstner Sloan-Kettering story is the exception.

I came across this article on assessing the culture of a potential research group that you might find useful. 


In particular, I think that asking current members whether they're happy in the group/program/etc. or not can be really revealing. I ended up not applying to one program after I asked this of a recent graduate who had to take a deep breath before replying with an unenthusiastic, "yeah...it's a really great program". :huh:
