I submitted my application and received interview request that evening. The interview dates were 1 week from the application date, and I was given 2 dates and 4 time slots to choose, but 1 interviewer.
I interviewed for the Evening MBA program with the Associate Director of Admissions on campus. The interview was formal, but comfortable in the private office of the interviewer. The interview was blind, and the interviewer made that clear at the beginning. The interviewer explained that the interview and application would be put together for review later.
-Describe a leader you admire. How are you applying the qualities that you admire in this leader, in your leadership?
-Why an MBA now?
-What do you want to see in your fellow students?
-Tell of a time in your professional life when you worked with someone who was not pulling their weight?
-Why this evening MBA program? What attracts you the most in the MBA program?
-How would your boss describe you? How would your co-workers describe you?
-What will you bring to this program?
-What would you look for in a successful team?
-Describe an achievement you accomplished in your professional life?
-A couple of resume/life/work specific questions.
-How would you contribute to the school as a student?
-What is the weakest part of your application? What is the strongest part of your application?
-Asked if I attended information session.
The interview felt very standard, and was not really surprising at all. The interviewer appeared quite relaxed and took notes throughout. The MBA office & staff seemed very relaxed and informal, but then UT (and Austin) is like that.
