Cornell Johnson Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 / Second-Year Student / Skype

1. Tell me about yourself.
2. Why MBA?
3. Why Now?
4. Why Johnson?
5. What do you know about recruiting for Tech? (Tech was my post-MBA career/goal)
6. Tell me about a time you had a conflict in a team.
7. Anything else you would like the admissions committee to know?
8. What are your questions for me?

Overall, it was very pleasant and easy-going. The student was one with similar goals as mine, I think they do that intentionally to gauge how well thought out your goal really is and what your understanding is of the recruiting for it. The student did try to understand my resume and background after I did the ‘tell me about yourself’ question. The student summarized my most recent role into 1-2 sentences and asked me to confirm if her understanding of it was correct.

My final thought would be that they really did try to get to know me in the 30 minutes of interview time.
