Cornell Johnson MBA Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 / Second-year student/ Skype

The following Cornell Johnson MBA interview questions & report were submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 1 applicant. Good luck to them!

Interviewer mentioned that it was a blind interview (only CV he had) so I am allowed to repeat anything I have written on my application)

Run me through your resume.
Why MBA?
Why Cornell specifically?
What are your long and short term goals?
What alternate career will you consider in case you do not get into consulting?
Tell me about three values that you follow in your life.
The course is pretty intensive. How you would prepare yourself to manage it?

He asked for questions then ( I asked 3). He was very conversational. I did not make that personal connect and had a very unstructured answer for one question. Got wait listed.
