UNC Kenan-Flagler Interview Report: Round 1/ Adcom / On-campus

The following UNC Kenan-Flagler interview report was submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 3 applicant. Good luck to them!

My interview at UNC was my first b-school interview, and I was very nervous beforehand. One thing I really appreciated about interviewing at UNC was that they had current students sitting in the lobby to talk to prospective students and essentially calm them down (as well as answer any questions about the program). My interviewer was also incredibly nice and really tried to make the interview more like a conversation.

Her questions were:

  • Walk me through your résumé
  • What’s been your best job? (though it’s only been five year since undergrad, I’ve had a lot of jobs)
  • What’s a weakness you have? And, how are you working to improve it?
  • Why MBA? Why Kenan-Flagler?
  • Recent example of teamwork
  • Most proud of career-wise
  • What skills have you learned from work?
  • Why did you pick undergrad school?
  • Questions for me?

Overall, the interview went by quickly. One thing I was surprised by was that she probed more than I expected she would on my short-term goal, which came up when I discussed “why mba.” I listed a specific company as an example, and she in turn asked me my thoughts on recent local news about the company, which I hadn’t heard (I live across the country). It seems obvious in retrospect, but my advice is to thoroughly research any companies you plan to bring up.
