Chicago Booth MBA Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 / Second-Year Student / Skype

Booth did a great job matching me with a 2nd-year student who had exactly the same industry work experience: IB and entrepreneurship.

The interviewer was very friendly and explained that he would not look at the camera all the time (taking notes or looking at my face). I had the following questions:

1. Present yourself briefly.
2. What do you think are your strengths and weaknesses?
3. Why did you want to start a company? What did you learn?
4. Have you ever worked with an underperforming team?
5. Do you think that a MBA is helpful ?
6. Why Booth?
7. Any questions for me?

It took 45 min and I felt pretty confident with my answer, although we did not really connect. I ended up being waitlisted.
