I've applied to this PhD position at imperial two weeks ago. I had a phone chat with the supervisor who said my background matches the research and he also said that the industry sponsor liked my cv. I had an formal interview today with the supervisor and another professor where I presented my research. I think I presented very well but they honestly caught me on lot of questions I had no clue what to answer.
The supervisor seemed a bit happy but surprised about the amount of content I wasn't taught at uni. I seriously flunked lots of questions.
After we finished the interview she introduced me to her department group. I was really nervous and didn't ask many questions.
She said she will be in touch with the industry supervisor over the weekend and give me the final decision on Monday.
I feel gutted I know I could be a lot less anxious. But what she said about contact in g the sponsor. So you think I still stand a chance ? (She also said I'm the only one applying and some people applied before but she rejected them)
