Welcome back to From the MBA Interview Archives, where we highlight the most in-depth and insightful MBA interview reports submitted to the Clear Admit Archive!

You still have some time to earn a $10 Amazon Gift for submitting a Wharton, INSEAD, Ross, Stern and MIT Sloan Interview Report. The eligibility deadline is tomorrow (Sunday, December 20, 2015) at 11:59PM EST. See eligibility requirements at the end of this post.

The following is an excerpt from a Wharton Interview Report we received this week:

“We began with our pitches. I volunteered to go first and gave a very concise and clear 55 second pitch. Others followed suit. I will say it was noticeable who had prepared as some pitches went on well past a minute and were less concrete. After that, someone volunteered to provide timing and structure to the discussion. It then took us a long time to come up with our idea. ”

“I was second and met with the second-year student for 10 minutes. It went by in a flash. The interviewer asked “how did the exercise go?”. I used that time to discuss my role during the exercise compared with how I usually am on teams. I provided examples of myself as both a leader and a follower.”

As a reminder, along with this weekly post, we’re hosting a contest for the best interview report(s). Every month, you’ll have a chance to win a $100 Amazon Gift Card, just by sharing your interview experience. For Round 2, we will also award a $75 Amazon Gift Card to one random, lucky winner. In other words, the more reports you submit, the better your chances!

Through the month of December submit your report from the 2015-2016 MBA admissions season for any of the top schools that Clear Admit covers. We will choose the best 5 reports that will be put up for a vote by you – the applicant community. On the second Friday of the following month (January 8), we’ll announce the winning report for the Best Interview Report Award.
