My interview took place in a quiet hotel area – I met the assistant dean of admissions at the Hilton in midtown New York. It was a blind interview, and she had my resume. She was prepared with a full sheet of questions, and she wrote down almost everything I was saying. The interview took about 30 minutes, as there were about 15 questions. What surprised me was that there were a lot of questions about times I had failed/times I had to overcome obstacles. I was more prepared to speak about my accomplishments so this took me by a bit of a surprise. Overall, it was a good and enlightened conversation and she asked good follow up questions to my answers. It seemed like the school genuinely wanted to know about me as a person and what made me different.
Here are the questions for your reference,:
1.Tell me something about your international experiences
2.Tell me about one time you had to overcome an obstacle working in a group and what you would do differently if you had to do it again
3.Tell me about how have you had to persuade others
4.Tell me about a time you failed and what you learned
5.What are the 3 top qualities you think a leader should have
6.What are 3 qualities you look for in a business school, especially our school
