USC / Marshall MBA Admissions Interview Questions: Round 2 / Adcom / On-campus

The atmosphere was casual. I was expecting something more structured and formal, but it ended up being a 45 minute barrage of why get an MBA and then 15 minutes of questions. I thought this was pretty unusual, and I couldn’t get a good read on the Adcom. The interviewer seemed to have read my application as he targeted my future goals right away. I was thrown a bit by how much persuading I had to do with just why an MBA because I felt at some point, we should’ve moved on, but he kept at it. But there’s nothing wrong with that, as I was comfortable speaking about my goals, background, network, and ambitions. For certain industries, the Trojan Network will get you where you want to be, and business school is so much more than just classes and a diploma.
