*I’m applying for Psychology PhD.
There’s a university that I am applying to but unlike some of the other universities I’ve found, where students can state their desired advisor, this university accepts students based on a collective decision and assigns you an initial advisor.
There were articles and questions on what to ask during PhD interviews, but not many for programs that do not give you the freedom of pick and choosing the lab you wish to work in.
What are some good questions to ask during the interview for a program that does not give you this option?
Since it’s the collective department accepting you, are there any useful ways to spot potential ‘red flags’?
Thank you in advance to those who read and answer this question
