Interview was very casual. He introduced himself and then asked me to introduce myself. He had gone through my resume in advance and asked some particular questions about my schooling. Below is an overview of some questions he asked.
1. What is the most difficult experience you have been through?
2. What will you do if you don’t get a visa to work in the US?
3. Tell me more about your interests outside of work?
4. Why do you not want to go back to your family business after the MBA? (personal question)
5. Tell me about the biggest failure in your life.
The interview was very conversational, nothing out of the ordinary. He had only read my resume prior to the interview, although he did ask for my GMAT score.
