UCLA / Anderson MBA Admissions Interview Questions 2011

Welcome to another peek at a recent interview shared in the Clear Admit Wiki, an online resource for MBA applicants to share their experience with the admissions process.  A second-year student posed the following questions to a Round 2 candidate for UCLA / Anderson:

“Arrived on campus for the first interview slot of the day (8:15 am) The door for the admissions office was still locked around 8:05 so I knocked persistently until adcom staff opened the door and let me in. After a 10 minute wait, a second year student introduced himself and led me to a conference room in the suite.

Interview began with a casual introduction of the interviewer’s background, career focus, etc. Following that we immediately jumped into my resume. About halfway down the page, the questions naturally shifted towards career goals, how Anderson will help fulfill them, what leadership roles have you taken on in your career, what are you strengths and weaknesses, and what do you think are the negative impacts of some of your weaknesses.

The interview was very conversational after moving off of the resume with follow-up questions to my responses, not at all like a barrage of questions. The 30 minutes passed really quickly- my two pieces of advice are to pace your responses and try to relax.”
