I applied online and interviewed at University of Michigan.

Interview Details I was interviewed in China by one faculty and one staff member from the department. The time duration was about 45 minutes, I think. They opened with greetings and asked me about my ride, etc. possibly to calm me down, but I would say I responding hastily and precisely in English was not so easy for me, at least not back then. They moved on to ask me about my undergraduate education and research and why I want to come to Michigan.

I asked about the weather in Ann Arbor when it was my turn to ask questions... well, I understand the look on their faces now :)
