Interview experience pls see below.

I received the online interview invitation today, scheduled on Jan 30, which is this Friday. Email said "will be 20-30 mins, with technical and other questions".

I am a bit panic, since it is so close and dun't know how to prepare. Anyone can offer some help or share experiences ?

Also, I am international student and didn't take the so-called online assessment. Does UT changed the admission procedure this year?

Keep calm!

The interviewer is most likely to be admission officer who doesn't know a lot about mathematics. According to experience last year, some basic questions about stochastic processes might be asked, such as definition of martingale or brownian motion. You will be asked to rate your programming skills in C++, Matlab. Other questions are behavioral questions.

Thanks for sharing!!!!! I had the interview last Friday. As you said, two officers interviewed me and no technical questions asked.
Its like they just want to see if I can speak English. Just reference for those who are preparing for the interview. Mine session include:
why UT, why MMF?
Programming skills?
Reasons to be admitted, not to be admitted
Hobby in leisure time
What is happening in the world .....
