The following MIT Sloan interview report was submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 2 applicant. Good luck to them!
The interview was very conversational – we jumped around a lot talking about my past experiences and my plans at school inside and outside of the classroom. While I was telling stories, I would often get stopped and asked a very probing question about how I reacted/felt about a certain thing. The interviewer had mentioned that they had just viewed the optional submission (I included a 1-minute video). I was asked first about the interview essay. We talked about this for about 6-7 minutes, as it was an example that included working in a group to overcome challenges. I was asked very specific questions about how I got buy-in, and methods of solving problems that arose.
After this, I was asked:
1. What did I like or dislike about my current role.
2. Talk about a time that I was given feedback.
3. Talk about a team member that was unmotivated. How did I motivate them.
4. What do I do outside of work.
5. What excites me about the field I am interested in.
6. Any questions for the admissions committee.
