Hi all,

I noticed many schools have interviews for stats/biostats PhD applications. I have several questions about the interviews, and hope people could share their experience of the interviews (or interviewing students??) :)  Some of the questions have been asked before about particular schools or fields, but I'll ask again just to keep everything in one place. Hopefully this will also be helpful for future applicants!

  • Who are the interviewers? The "professor of interest" the applicant specified in the application? Or just a random professor on the adcom?
  • What is the usual content of the interview? My impression is that people usually talk about research interests and prior research experiences, but have also heard there're rather "technical" interviews where they would quiz you...
  • Who are usually interviewed? Only the people on the cusp of admission or every possible admit?
  • How important are these interviews?
