The following UNC MBA interview questions & report were submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 2 applicant. Good luck to them!

I am an American currently working in China, so I scheduled a Skype interview (11:45pm China time). The interviewer from the adcom called right on time. He was calling from his office and the setting was fairly casual as we opened with some small talk. He started by joking that, if I had been on campus for the interview, he’d go out to where all the interviewees were waiting and say “hey, we got a Dukie in the house!” (I graduated from Duke). Interview lasted about 45 minutes in total (15 minutes longer than expected).

Questions asked:

1. Did you go to a public or private high school? (seems to be a recurring question for UNC)
2. What were some of your extracurriculars in college?
3. What has been your biggest contribution to your company?
4. What motivates you? What drives you go get up every morning?
5. What are your short term and long term goals?
6. Why Kenan-Flagler?
7. Does your company know you are applying for an MBA or is it still a secret?
8. (I replied yes and in fact my manager wrote my recommendation to question 7) I want you to answer as if you were [your recommender]. What are two phrases [your recommender] would use to describe you?
9. What would [your recommender] say is one area that you need the most improvement in?
10. Since this is a blind interview, I have not actually looked at any of your files. I want you, without telling me your GMAT score, to tell me if you are satisfied with your score and do you think it accurately represents your abilities?

Additional question: Did you always live in the United States? (this was because I listed Taiwanese as one of my language skills and the interviewer was curious)

Note: great thanks to members; the interview experiences shared here were very useful in prepping. (I’m fairly certain I got the same interviewer as this guy based on the questions and how friendly he was:
