UVA / Darden MBA Admissions Interview Questions 2011

If you are preparing for an MBA admissions interview, be sure to check out the Clear Admit Wiki!  It’s chock full of firsthand accounts of interviews, as reported by MBA applicants themselves.  This Round 2 candidate for UVA / Darden interviewed with a second-year student:

“I interviewed on campus with a second year. He started off saying that the admissions committee was already impressed, which is why I was called in for an interview and that this was a blind interview. He then told me that I had about 30 min to tell my story and to start whenever I wanted. I briefly touched upon my childhood and my college experience and then focused on my career choices and extracurriculars. There was then about 15 min for him to ask follow up questions. ex. why Darden and why MBA.

I thought there would have been more back and forth which through me off but we had a nice discussion once it became time for questions. Overall it was pretty laid back and I felt very comfortable.

end result: I was accepted”
