    Yeah, I wasn't too precise in that comment. 2-3% overall admission rate. Given an interview it is generally 50% or more. Most of the relevant information comes from transcripts, test scores, and letters.

    I don't think it's considered in a bad light, but I think it would be a wasted opportunity.

    At least for me, that was a very good part of my interview, probably the best because the rest was pretty standard stuff. For me, it's not only the school that is interviewing me, but I'm also interviewing the school. It was a chance to understand more about the personality of potential advisors, what is their style when advising a PhD student, what kind of resources I could expect from the school to help with my research interests, and it was very interesting to see some questions that they were not prepared to answer.

    Another question I have since I am preparing for an interview. When I filled out my application I had to answer a question like this:

    "Are you applying for other post-graduate programs? If so, please give details."

    I am assuming they will ask me which other schools I have applied to. Again I'd like to hear opinions on the best response to this question.

    Yeah, this is actually an exciting time for applicants because the hard work is done and now you just have to stay positive and wait for the results.
    In one year from now you will be stressed out and overwhelmed as a first year student thinkink back to this time when it was all calm and quiet.
    Good luck!

    As far as I know, it's not common to ask for details about that during interviews. At least sometimes, they ask for details during the application so that schools can have a better idea about which schools are considered the main competitors from the perspective of applicants, or something like that.

    But they can talk a little about that during the interview. My opinion is: just avoid weird answers or answers that are hard to explain.

    Saying that you applied to a school that is completely different from the one interviewing you or that doesn't make sense according to what you've been telling them, for example. Let's say that you stated that you love empirical research, but then you say you applied to lots of schools that are much more focused on theoretical research. It would sound like you don't know what you are doing, what are your real research interests, or that you're lying.

    But usually they don't care much about which other schools you're applying to.

    However, if you got offers from other schools, they may be very interested in that. In this case, many professors will be willing to help you to compare between schools to help you to make the best decision regarding which offer you should accept. Of course professors will be biased, and they acknowledge that, but they try to be fair in their assessment of the offers you have.

    I see. This makes it almost looks like some schools already have an eye to accept you if they are interested in how you will choose between that school and other offers you get. In this case, the school I am interviewing with is my dream school so there are no circumstances that I would reject if they gave me an offer. It would be good for me to mention this in the interview?
