Duke / Fuqua MBA Admissions Interview Questions: EA / Alumnus / Off-campus

I interviewed in his office, which seemed a bit stressful at start but turned out to be fine.
The interview lasted an hour, and the interviewer was very friendly and relaxed, and it felt like a conversation with a friend rather than an interview for a business school. He presented himself, the format of the interview and then we started. Questions:

1) Walk me through your resume (with interim questions and clarifications)
2) Why MBA
3) Why in Fuqua and not other schools
4) How will you contribute
5) Tell me about your greatest achievement and greatest failure
6) My questions to him

This experience really matched what I read here and in other sites about Fuqua’s interviews being very casual, simple and focusing on the “fit” with the school and its community. Overall, it felt good.

2 weeks later I was admitted 🙂
