Depends on the subject: I'm sure most science ones have compulsory interviews unless you are going straight through from an undergrad or Masters level lab project.
Humanities, no idea... but I am under the impression the whole process is different from sciences.
O_o Whats the point?! Surely, you jest!
Anyways if all you want it for is to return to the "student life" then you will find it is very different from undergrad! But yes, its not just for job prospects, by that stage you should have your own motivation, enjoyment etc
I'm sure it happens to the best of us. :)
I was actually told an interview a few years ago that I had got the place but a few weeks later I got an email from the other supervisor that in fact, I hadn't and someone with an excellent 1st had turned up after me! :D Whoops! :D It pissed me off something rotten but in the long term I've probably been better off.
:D Only one other forum refer to me as "Mambo", I don't know you, do I? :D he he
Anyways he won't say which is why I got a bit worried... but I am getting interviews so I assume all is well so far. Unless of course the lab where I had my most recent interview haven't asked for references yet.
Rather than start a new topic I thought I would ask here:
My supervisor/tutor mentioned to me the other day that he had written a reference for several Phd places I have applied for in the past month. I have had two interviews both of which were not successful, one outright rejection and I have two more interviews next week. I am really concerned about what he has told them, seeing as I just can't seem to get my experiments to work. I have spent three months trying to get it right and he has even watched me work and he reckons I am doing nothing wrong. Is it likely that I am getting turned down because my supervisor is telling them I am crap in the lab?! I'm working really hard, I just think I have had really bad luck.
