I am seeking help mainly from MSTP candidates who are familar with the interview procedure. I know there's a mega-long thread on the subject of MSTP. I'm posting this up because MSTP questionairres posted in the interviewfeedback are super-outdated for a majority of schools and I have my first MSTP interview coming up so soon. I'm getting nervous because even though I know my reason to pursue the dual program, I am not at all certain about the exact nature of my future research nor am I certain which faculty I want to meet in particular on the day of my interview. Every MSTP candidate (in the MSTP BLVD thread) seems to know so much about which school offers an ideal program for him/her, and many seem to know which faculty members they want to speak with on the interview day. I feel presure to know something great/unique about the school, but, aargh, I really don't. More questions: what type of questions should I prepare to ask especially to the research faculty members? Most likely I won't know much about their research (the school didn't disclose info about my interviewers), ie I probably won't be able to ask anything specific. How did you eloquently wrap up the last segment of the interview then? This is what I've been doing thus far: reviewing my appls and all of my research projects, mock interviews with a friend and a senior scientist at my work, and reading up on the school MSTP program and their faculty research (not in detail). Anything else I should be doing??? I look forward to hearing from some of you MSTP folks out there. Thanks.
