Chicago Booth Interview Questions & Report: Round 2 / Alumnus / Off-Campus

Took place in a hotel lobby off-campus. Very pleasant interview – alum graduated from Booth a few years ago and it was very much like a conversation. It was clear that the alum wanted to know me better – I had sent a resume and he’d clearly read through it beforehand and knew about my previous work history. I brought extra copies but he didn’t need a copy, and he jotted down quick notes as I answered questions throughout the interview. Questions he asked included:

  • Why MBA?
  • Why Booth?
  • How will you contribute to Booth’s community?
  • Who’s your personal hero?
  • What was your biggest failure?
  • What was your biggest accomplishment?

We then had time to just chat about his Booth experience. It was very conversational, and I was surprised at how candid the interviewer was when discussing his viewpoints on Booth, MBAs, and the industry that we shared in common. Very positive experience – I felt comfortable sharing about myself and the interviewer was extremely friendly. Fingers crossed for March!
