Kellogg / Northwestern MBA Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 / Alum / Off-campus

This was a R1 interview, and it took place at a hotel near the Alum’s office. He was extremely friendly.

1) Walk me through your resume
2) Why MBA?
3) Why Kellogg?
4) Goals
5) How will you differentiate yourself at Kellogg?
6) A few specific questions about a previous job I held
7) Tell me about a time when you led a team.
8) How will you contribute at Kellogg?
9) Which other schools have you applied to?

For the Why Kellogg question, I happened to mention about how I had reached out to a certain club’s president and the interviewer asked me to mention her name and took a note of it.

Very nice and friendly discussion. All along expected lines.
