London Business School Admissions Interview Questions: Round 2 / Adcom / Off-Campus

My interview went very well. It flowed much more like a casual conversation than a structured interview, lasting about 40 minutes. My interviewer started by telling me about himself and the admissions process, then asked me the following questions/prompts (while taking notes directly on the resume that I handed him):

1. Walk me through your resume.
2. Tell me about your hometown / did you attend a public or private high school?
3. Do you feel as though your GMAT verbal and quant scores (which he said he had not yet seen) are good indicators of your academic ability? Why or why not?
4. What are your short-term and long-term goals?
5. If I were to call your current direct supervisor at work (which he said he would not do without asking for my permission), in one or two words how would he/she describe your greatest strength? What would he/she name as the area where you have the greatest room for improvement?

  1. Racist Behavior from Kathy Harvey, Oxford Executive MBA Director

    Dear future applicants to Oxford Executive MBA,

    I wanted to say my opinion of the Oxford EMBA and an incident that happened to me during last week. I was talking to the EMBA Director Kathy Harvey about an incident I faced in class, and then she raised her voice on me and told me to stop talking, or in other words to shut up. I really don’t know what to call this behavior except that it’s racist and low class, especially coming from a program director at a business school, who’s supposed to be neutral and offering students a safe environment to learn in. I felt much distress afterwards especially that no one likes to be shouted at, and for no reason.

    Not to mention that this is the second time this occurs that she asks me to stop talking. The first time was during my interview and I was talking about my experience and she kept cutting me and interrupting my answers. I had interviews with London Business School, Michigan Ross, IE and Chicago Booth, and no one from these reputable schools interrupted me and asked me to stop talking. Now this time, she raises her voice at me and asks me to stop talking again. I don’t know what kind of issues she has, but she’s certainly a low class individual and shouldn’t be dealing with students from different cultures or high class individuals. What kind of a school asks its students to shut up and raises their voice on them? A racist, degree-mill of a school.

    If you’re looking for a high quality education and a safe environment to learn in with no racism and people with issues, avoid this low-class program even if you’ll pay more.
