The following U. Chicago Booth admissions interview questions and report were submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 1 MBA applicant. Good luck to them!
Booth seemed to do a good job matching candidates with second-year students with some shared background. My interviewer had previously been an equity research analyst, so I had a good time chatting with him about my experience. Questions were generally predictable – walk me through your resume, describe a time you navigated a challenge, etc. Overall, I thought it was fairly straightforward and I appreciated the opportunity to chat one-on-one with a second-year with similar interests. There are optional activities available for those who interview on-campus: lunch with current students, campus tour, and class visit.
