It was a very conversational interview. Since Sloan does non-blind behavioral interviews with admissions committee members, they are already familiar with your application and ask more targeted questions that allow you to frame your answers in ways that make sense to your story.
- Tell me about your background and how you ended up where you are today.
- Tell me about a challenge you faced in your current role.
- Tell me about a positive impact you had on a team / organization.
- Tell me about a time you had to convince someone of your idea.
- Why MBA / why now / why Sloan?
- Is there anything we didn’t talk about that you would like to highlight?
There was also a lot of time at the end for questions, and the admissions officer was very friendly and enthusiastic about answering with as much detail as possible. I ended up saying “no” to the extra highlights question, but wish I had gone into more depth about why I chose my potential career track.
