Cornell Johnson Interview Questions & Report: Round 3 / Adcom / Skype

I interviewed in mid-February with an adcom member for the 1-year MBA program at Cornell.

The interview was conversational and not a stress interview. It lasted for about 30 minutes. The interviewer had read my resume and not essays or other aspects of my application (a semi-blind interview).

Below were the questions she asked:

  1. Tell me about your journey so far.
  2. Why MBA? Why now?
  3. Why Johnson? What motivates you to apply to this school?
  4. Leadership qualities without examples.
  5. Anything else you would like us to know?
  6. Any questions for me?

Interview was very relaxed and easygoing, nothing out of the blue. Just know your story well and read about Johnson and get in touch with alumni/adcom members to know more about the school before your interview.

Final Decision: Admitted
