USC / Marshall MBA Admissions Interview Questions: Round 1 / On-Campus / Adcom

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.
