Chicago Booth Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 Second Year On-Campus

Chicago Booth MBA Interview Questions

The following U. Chicago Booth MBA interview questions and report were submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 1 applicant. Good luck to them!

I did the class visit and lunch with current students on the day before my interview. I recommend doing that. It gets you familiar with the campus and the general vibe and helps calm nerves.

I reached admissions office and checked in half hour prior to the interview. They almost always have a second year student sitting in the waiting room – to diffuse the nervousness in the room and to offer answers to questions about student life etc – which is really nice of Booth!

Boothies are pretty friendly and humble people. So I generally had a good time at the school and could definitely see myself being a part of the community.

For the interview, I was asked:

Why MBA?
Why now?
Why Booth?
Courses that interest me.
How will I contribute to Booth community?
A failure situation I encountered.

We had 10 minutes for me to ask questions.

Overall, the interview was conversational and relaxed. The interviewer was not from my field but had clearly done their research to ensure they understood my resume.

I did have a good time but I did not get a positive or negative feeling at the end of the interview. The interviewer seemed very neutral (perhaps unimpressed).
