Stanford GSB Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 / Alumnus / Off-Campus

It was a very laid-back interview, held in the office of the alumnus. Both my wife and I interviewed back-to-back. He asked me (with some follow-ups):
– Walk me through your resume
– How would you make a decision as to which school to attend?
– Tell me about a time you found a problem and solved it
– Tell me about a time you convinced other people to do something
– Tell me about a time you led a team
– How did you change someone because of your mentorship?
– Tell me about a time you failed
– Tell me about a time you started something

It was exactly as I expected; nothing out of the ordinary based on conversations I had with alums and what I’d read here. I thought it was very fair, objective, and really gave me the chance to express myself.
