UT Austin / McCombs Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 / Second Year Student / On Campus

UT Austin McCombs Interview Questions & Report

The following UT Austin McCombs interview questions and report were submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 1 applicant. Good luck to them!

My McCombs interview was pretty straightforward. Blind interview with a second year student who went through a list of questions he had on a sheet and took some time to answer my questions at the end. He asked me questions like:

Walk me through your professional experience and what you learned in each role.
What put McCombs on your radar when you started considering business schools?
What are your short-term and long-term career goals?
What is your back up plan if those goals don’t work out?
Tell me about a time you led a team.
Tell me about a conflict at work.
What would you like to be involved with here?
What did you learn through the application process?

We ended up having a lot in common so we chatted in between questions and at the end about all sorts of things. Overall it was a casual conversation that lasted about 45 minutes plus 15 minutes for my questions. Just come prepared with your stories and you’ll be fine. Good luck!
