Yale SOM MBA Admissions Interview Questions: Round 2 / Second-year student / On-Campus
The ADCOM prepared a full day of activities, including class visit and lunch with first year students.
The atmosphere was friendly; it was clear that the interviewer was in my shoes 2 years ago. He had an A4 sheet of paper with some questions and a couple of rows to write below each question. He stated that the ADCOM had given him such forms to fill out and apologized in advance for sounding “robotic”. He stated some of the facts you point out in your interview guide: the interview is only one component of the application; I have not seen your application, just your resume (which he brought with him)…
30 minutes seemed like 15. It was a great interview that I enjoyed very much.
My overall experience at Yale SOM was awesome, especially since they moved to Evans Hall.
