The following UNC Kenan-Flagler interview report was submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 2 applicant. Good luck to them!
Interviewed by an adcom member. He is super friendly and super awesome guy. Though every interviewer says that it would be conversational and friendly chat, this guy takes it to another level. I literally felt like sitting in a coffee shop, chatting with an old pal!
Some of the questions were very unexpected questions, but none caught me off-guard as they were simple questions about me. He started off by greeting, saying a few comforting sentences. Then he asked me what time it was! Then we dived into the real stuff! Here are the questions:
1) Did you attend a public or private high school?
2) How did you choose College ABC? Why major in PQR?
3) How were you selected for your job at Company XYZ? Was it through Campus Placement or off-campus hunt or something else?
4) What makes you get up in the morning, and makes you go to work and be proud in the evening?
5) What has been your biggest contribution at work? Something that you can be proud about and say that yes, this is something I did for company XYZ!
6) What are some extra-curricular activities that you participated in college?
7) What are your short term and long term goals?
8) Why an MBA from Kenan-Flagler?
9) Your research about KF seems thorough. Where did you learn so much about us?
10) Do your bosses and others at work know about your MBA plans?
11) If I were to call your direct supervisor how would he describe you in two words or short phrases?
12) And what would he say is an area you need to improve in?
13) I haven’t yet looked at your file. So, I don’t really know your GPA or GMAT score. I don’t want you to tell me your GMAT score. But tell me are you satisfied with it? Do you think it truly represents your capabilities?
At last, he gave me more insights about KF through his personal experiences and asked me for any questions that I could have from him. Then he showed my résumé scribbled in his handwriting and expressed his keenness to vouch for me.
It was really a wonderful experience!
