Yale SOM Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 / Second-year student / On-Campus

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!

I was invited to interview on-campus at Yale SOM (I received my invite a couple weeks after applying). My interview was first thing in the morning, and then there were planned activities for the rest of the day (class visit, campus tour, etc.)

The interviewer (a second-year student) was very friendly, just wanted to get to know me and my motivations for applying. The interview lasted ~30 minutes. They asked most of the standard questions.

Questions asked:
Tell me about your work experience, and particularly about your current role
Tell me about something you are proud of at work
Tell me about a time you failed at work
Why MBA? Why now?
Why Yale?
What can you contribute to the class?
What would you want to get involved in on-campus?
Questions for me?

I was accepted in Round 1, I received a phone call the morning of decision day.
