Cornell Johnson MBA Interview Questions & Report: Round 2 / AdCom / Ithaca

Cornell Johnson MBA deadlines

Cornell Johnson MBA Interview: I came before classes started so I didn’t see many applicants in the waiting room. Chatted with friendly admissions receptionist before being picked up by AdCom. I was with AdCom member and a student interviewer in training so total of two people in the private office of that AdCom member.


  1. Asked: “Walk me through your resume”
  2. Asked to justify why I had switched companies/job progression
  3. Long term and short term goals
  4. Why Cornell
  5. How would I take advantage of career management center
  6. What activities would I take advantage of outside classroom ie, extracirriculuars
  7. Asked if there is anything else I wanted to share with AdCom

She was pretty poker faced, couldn’t read how I was doing with her. Overall tense experience but got in with $$
