The following Columbia MBA interview questions & report were submitted to Clear Admit by an Early Decision applicant. Good luck to them!
Very, very standard interview with an alumni.
I applied early decision (9/5) got the interview invite on 9/22, had the interview on 10/4, feedback submitted 10/5, acceptance call 10/6
We met at a coffee shop in NYC, the interview lasted around 40 minutes, and she was extremely friendly!
- Tell me about yourself
- What are your professional goals?
- Do you have a backup plan?
- Why are you looking for an MBA?
- Why Columbia?
- How will you prioritize your time at Columbia?
It was very conversational, so we discussed all of those over the course of 40 minutes, and she frequently gave me her own thoughts, etc. I asked around 5 questions at the end.
