NYU / Stern MBA Admissions Interview Questions: Round 2 / Adcom / On-Campus

I got there 20 min early. The receptionist gave me the t-shirt and folder tailored to my interests that all other interviewees seem to mention. The adcom who was interviewing me was nice, however little time was spent on introducing ourselves which made it hard to relate to her. The interview felt like an interrogation rather than an interview maybe it was because the adcom was doing the interview rather than students like at other schools. She took my transcript at the end. Questions were as follows, although not in this order:

1. How would you get involved at Stern?
2. Tell me about a time you had conflict at work?
3. How did you come to work for XYZ?
4. Why did you leave XYZ to work at ABC?
5. What is your proudest work related accomplishment?
6. What is your back up plan if you don’t work in your desired post-MBA role?
7. What most surprises you about Stern?
8. Questions for the AdCom?
