Yale SOM Interview Questions & Report: Round 2 / Adcom / Off-campus Hub

Yale SOM Interview Questions

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

The interview was very formulaic. When I entered the room, the Admissions associate introduced herself and then told me that the interview would be 30 minutes and 6 questions. They used to allow alumni and current students to hold interviews, but said that was too hard to standardize/judge. AdCom said she hadn’t read my file, but did have my résumé in hand.

Questions were:

  1. Walk me through your résumé.
  2. Why an MBA/why now?
  3. One success at work/why was it meaningful. One failure at work/why was it meaningful.
  4. Short description of Yale community, then what will you contribute?
  5. Anything else I should know? Anything you’d like to highlight?
  6. Any questions for me?

Pretty straightforward, lasted 20 minutes only.
