The following MIT Sloan MBA interview report was submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 1 applicant who was admitted. Congratulations to them!

My interview lasted about 45 minutes and the interviewer was extremely nice. I was expecting more behavioral questions but she ended up asking me a lot about my work. I was also told that interviewers will ask probing questions regarding my résumé/essays and also ask follow-up questions about my interview responses, but that wasn’t the case. I didn’t get any questions about my résumé or essay, and the interviewer had written down a list of questions beforehand in a notebook to ask me in the interview. She took a lot of notes and pretty much didn’t ask any follow-up questions.

The questions I got were:

1. Tell me something creative that you’ve done at your job.
2. What types of decisions can you make at work without deferring to your case manager?
3. What is your favorite aspect of your job?
4. What is the most challenging thing about your job?
5. Time when I dealt with an unproductive coworker
6. Time when the team had low morale and how I tackled that
7. Why MBA?
8. What aspects of Sloan’s program I will get the most out of?
9. Questions for her

I forgot to ask for her business card at the end but I looked up her email on the website and sent her a thank you email. She responded to my email, which was nice of her. Overall the experience was very friendly and low-stress. Just got the acceptance call from Sloan.
