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

My interview at Booth was blind and done by a second year student. While you wait at the lounge area in the admissions office, the first year student will sit down with you and casually chat in order to make you feel relaxed. The interviewer dressed formally so as all candidates. The interview ran for 45 minutes. It was cordial and professional. Interviewer started with a brief introduction of herself. Nothing was surprising. I did my interview as a part of a campus visit. I highly recommend candidates do so if they haven’t already.


  1. Tell me about yourself
  2. Why did you move to the states?
  3. How was the experience of moving to a new country?
  4. Talk about overcoming difficulties during this period
  5. Why do you need MBA?
  6. Why Booth?
  7. How will you get involved at Booth?
  8. How would you manage your time at Booth? (not exact questions. It was in the effect of “your calendar can get crazy at Booth. How would you…?”)
  9. What was your most significant leadership challenge?
  10. Anything else you want to talk about that we haven’t touched upon?
