    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Worldwatch Institute (Washington, DC (US)) in April-2011.

    Interview

    The interview was really fun because I got to learn more from behind the scenes at an organization I really admire. I was from out of town so I had to do it over the phone. Unfortunately I didn't go further than the first phone screen since shortly after the first call I was accepted into a MA program that started early.
