Hi, it's been about 6 weeks since I was put into the host-matching pool and I haven't ended up getting contacted by any host yet. I have also been changing the answers to my questionnaire quite a bit but to no avail. Does anyone have any tips on how to get matched or at least noticed by a potential host?
I’ve heard it is hard to get matched in the fall unless you are returning intern. There are fewer projects compared to summer. I wasn’t able to match when I tried. Also, I’ve heard that listing ML in your questionnaire is viewed negatively unless you really have good experience (like being a grad student and having publications in good conferences).
