Chicago Booth MBA Interview Questions & Report: Round 2 / Second-year student / On-campus

booth interview questions

After participating in the information session on campus at Booth, I waited for my interviewer at the admission office. My interviewer was a second-year student, who was sponsored by a consulting firm. We started small talks about my interview trip. (Note that I am an international applicant who had a long flight from my hometown.)


  1. Tell me about yourself
  2. My role in the current employer (I think she asked this because I recently moved to a new company.)
  3. Conflicts at the current working place (This question is also related to #2)
  4. Tell me about your experience when you helped other people.
  5. Tell me about a time when you failed.
  6. Why MBA and why now?
  7. Why Booth specifically?
  8. What classes/club activities are you interested in?
  9. Questions for me?

I tried to show her how much I researched the school and connected with current students. Overall, the interview was very conversational and stretched from professional stuff to personal aspects. I am now waiting for the result. Hope to hear good news from Chicago.
