USC / Marshall MBA Admissions Interview Questions 2011

If you are a candidate preparing for an interview don’t forget to check out the Clear Admit Wiki, a free resource full of advice for applicants by applicants, as well as complete accounts of interview questions and experiences. Today’s post comes from a Round 1 candidate to USC / Marshall:

“The interviewer was fully familiar with my essays and resume. He had very particular questions based on my essays and resume. The following are the questions.

  • What I was doing currently ( I am unemployed currently).
  • My work with an NGO – the nature of work, responsibilities, changes I saw etc ( Had mentioned in my resume).
  • Leadership experience related to work( was in an essay )- The discussion included the biggest challenge, how to deal with colleagues who were not pulling their weight, results etc.
  • Why MBA – Career Goals.
  • Why Marshall?
  • Why now?

Then couple of questions pertaining specifically to my resume.

In general, it was a very conversational interview which lasted 30 – 40 min. I was also given 10 min to ask my questions to which the interviewer answered very pleasantly.”

Thank you to everyone who has submitted interview reports thus far, and good luck to anyone still preparing to meet with admissions representatives, current students, or alumni!
