Harvard Business School MBA Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 / Adcom / On Campus

The following Harvard Business School MBA interview questions and report were submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 1 applicant. Good luck to them!

I spent a day on campus participating in interviewee activities (class visit, lunch with the admissions director, tour and career session), and interviewed the following morning. All interviewees hung out in a hospitality room until 15 minutes before our time slot. At that point, a student admissions volunteer collected all interviewees for the given time slot (there were about 10 of us) and took us upstairs to another waiting room. After about ten minutes, admissions representatives came in and called individual names to go interview.

The interview was exactly 30 minutes long and fairly conversational. She started by asking me about my visit, what class I sat in on and what the case was. From there, nearly every question was based on my resume. She asked me about my undergraduate honors program, my favorite undergrad class, and the rotational program at my first company. Then she picked out a couple experiences from my most recent 3 roles. What was my involvement? How did we make decisions and work together as a team? Lastly, she picked out a point from one of my recommendations and asked me to provide some additional color.
