Ylglk, I have heard different things. Some say around 50%, but I have also heard that the interview process is mostly to make sure you are able to articulate yourself and have a presence in the room, which would be a way to make sure you can get a job.
Thanks! 50% was probably for the previous years. I heard its more competitive now.. probably around 25%.. not sure though..

Is anyone having his interview with Kim Ebeling? Mine is with her the 14th.
For those who have had their interview already, would very much appreciate any comments.

Interview over. Questions pretty much the same as that of the Wiki. Dont think I did well though, stammered alot.

Hello Demonicangelz, hope is the last thing to lose, you probably did better than you think.
How was Kim Ebeling? was she friendly or is she too serius? Any advice?

She was quite friendly, but seemed to have a list of questions from which to pick and was writing down notes as I spoke.

Seemed like she had some sort of a form to fill in? Not sure if its standard or just written up before the interview.

FYI please call the admissions office if you are unable to connect via skype. There were some technical problems when I called.

And yes they read your application before the interview.

Results on 14th March. (If I remember correctly)

Is English your second language or were you just nervous?

Do not worry. I had an interview a month ago for another program and thought it went poorly. I ended up being accepted and getting a nice scholarship on top of it.

Some of the guys I met who interviewed on campus probably got stuck in Boston due to weather! I managed to escape Boston just in time but I'm still trying to find a way out of the second stage of my travels.
