Four Reasons You Need to Visit Clear Admit’s Interview Archive

If you’re preparing for a Round 2 MBA admissions interview, we wanted to remind Class of 2020 hopefuls that Clear Admit can help with the final hurdle to acceptance: the interview. The Clear Admit Interview Archive is a repository of first-hand accounts shared directly by MBA applicants after they have interviewed with one or more of their target top-tier business schools. The details shared in these reports—from the questions asked to what the applicant would do differently if he or she had it to do over—provide invaluable information as you prepare for your interviews.

  1. You Won’t Find a More Robust Resource Anywhere
    With more than 2,000 MBA admissions interview reports, the Clear Admit Interview Archive has you covered no matter what type of interview you’ll be facing. In some cases, your interviewer will be familiar with your entire application; in others, just your résumé. Candidates who’ve encountered both scenarios can tell you how best to prepare for each. The wide range of interview accounts also includes advice on how best to prepare based on who you your interviewer will be, whether a second-year student, alumnus, or adcom member.
  2. It’s Easy to Sort and Search for Your Target MBA Programs
    With just two clicks, you can bring up the latest reports from your target business school.Four Reasons You Need to Visit Clear Admit’s Interview Archive
  3. You’ll Quickly Learn Exactly What to Expect from Your Target Schools
    Find out what your program typically asks applicants—from the standard questions, like “why are you pursuing an MBA?” to more difficult ones, such as how you may have handled a conflict at work. You can also find firsthand insights into the more unusual interview practices, such as Wharton’s Team-Based Discussion and Michigan / Ross’s Team Exercise.
  4. Paying It Forward Could Qualify You to Win
    Preparing for your own interviews is the first reason to visit the Interview Archive, but don’t forget to come back and help others who come after you by sharing what your experience was like. Paying it forward should be reward enough in itself, but each applicant who submits an MBA interview report by midnight EST on Sunday, March 10th, for Chicago / Booth, Columbia Business School, Harvard Business School, Northwestern / Kellogg, Michigan / Ross, NYU Stern, Stanford GSB, UPenn / Wharton, UT Austin / McCombs or Yale SOM also will be eligible to win a $10 Amazon gift card. *If you’d like to take part in the contest, please include the following information in your report:
  • Date/admissions round
  • Description/location of visit and/or interview atmosphere
  • Type of interview (alum vs. adcom, blind vs. application-based)
  • List of interview questions
  • Color commentary is also encouraged. You might share whether or not you’ve received your admissions decision or what you thought of the interview? Maybe include what surprised you and what didn’t. Did you draw any conclusions or learn anything new about the school based on your interview experience? Why not share them with fellow applicants?

*Limit one gift card per person.

Only the above-mentioned schools are included in our current contest, but don’t let that stop you from submitting your report(s) regardless of where you interviewed. Because, of course, the Interview Archive is only as good as the reports applicants submit.
