"an hour long interview. i will be honest, it isn't a cakewalk. a person as senior as dr. j, u can't really have a "chat" with him. he wanted a concrete plan from you regarding your future. so one can't bluff him. just read up on the interview forums. KNOW YOUR STUFF and be confident. there are always 10 questions and the essay which is mandatory. other questions follow during the discussion of other questions. do not be philosophical. be honest. be yourself. gud luck !"
