The following Dartmouth / Tuck MBA interview questions and report were submitted to Clear Admit by an Early Action Applicant. Good luck to them!
The interviewer was a 2nd-year MBA student. She was very nice and made me feel relaxed and comfortable from the get-go. She escorted me to the conference room where the interview was held. On the walk there, we briefly talked about where I was traveling from, and the weather (It was raining a lot that day, and was messy).
The interview questions were as follows:
1) Walk me through your résumé, and explain any transitions in work
2) Why do you need an MBA at this stage?
3) Why an MBA at Tuck as opposed to other schools?
4) How do you plan to contribute and engage yourself at Tuck?
After these intro questions, several behavioral questions were asked:
5) What would your current supervisor say about you?
6) What are some of your weaknesses?
7) Tell me about a time where you solved a problem at work.
8) What are you involved in outside of work? (extracurriculars)
9) Anything else that I should know about you?
Overall, the interview was very relaxed and conversational. I felt comfortable the whole time, because I got the sense that that interviewer really was interested in what I had to say. I highly recommend interviewing on campus if it is feasible for you!
