UCLA / Anderson MBA Admissions Interview Questions: Round 1 / Second-year student / Skype

The interview was very casual and straightforward. Since it is very short and the interviewer has quite a lot of required questions to ask, you don’t really get time to do small talk.

The student had only access to my résumé, which he looked at to keep track of what I was saying.
I appreciated the fact that he was very punctual and cheerful.

The questions I got were:
Walk me through your résumé (with some additional questions around specific points)
Why do you want an MBA and why now? He insisted a lot on the “now” aspect.
Why Anderson?
What is your leadership style ?
What clubs are you interested in at Anderson?
What is a past conflict how did you solve it?

I had the time to ask him two questions
– Did he reach out to the alumni network ? Under which circumstances ? How was it ?
– What he likes most in his experience at Anderson.

Overall it gave me a nice impression of the school (friendliness and punctuality) and I believe that the admission process will be fair (same questions for all applicants).
