The Michigan / Ross MBA interview was very conversational and honestly quite short. It is a blind interview with the student having seen only my resume. She came prepared with a few questions based on my resume. She explained that the interview would be quite short and she would only ask a limited number of questions before opening it up for conversation.
The actual interview took only 17 minutes and covered a general walk me through your resume question.
- Examples of leadership/team building
- Success and failure
- How I’d like to get involved at Ross
- Why Ross in particular
- Attributes that describe my leadership style
We then spend the next 15-20 minutes conversing mostly about her involvement and experience in the MAP program and how it can be tailored to meet individual academic and personal goals. We also spoke about an event she was coordinating in the Detroit area and how Ross gets involved in the local urban communities.
Overall it flowed pretty freely and I appreciated her open responses to my questions and we seemed to get along well.
