Chicago Booth MBA Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 / Alum / Off-Campus

My interview was with a very senior alumnus in India. It was a blind interview and he had no access to my application. However, we spoke at length about my future goals.

Questions were largely behavioural in nature –
1. What are your biggest professional achievements and failures?
2. Tell me about a time you worked on a team
3. How did you cope with negative feedback
4. Short and long term goals
5. Why Booth
6. Why MBA? Why not just startup right now?
7. What are your expectations from Booth
8. Any questions for me

Interview lasted 70 mins. What surprised me was that for the professional experiences, he was very keenly interested and pressed on in detail. He reacted and had follow up Qs to almost every answer of mine. I think the school takes a genuine interest in knowing you and knowing how much you want to be at Booth.
