Yale SOM Video Essay: Round 2 / Video Essay Component / Online

After signing in, I got the opportunity to test my computer and prepare two sample questions.

For the real questions, there would be a video of an Admission Officer saying the prompt and the text below it. After the video ended, a timer would start with time to prepare the answer. Then, the recording would start.

The questions were as follows:

1. Why an MBA and why now? (20 seconds to prepare, 60 to present)
2. Talk about a difficult situation you have experienced at work. Explain with details. (30 seconds to prepare, 90 to present)
3. Some people say Technology is the main cause for lower wages and people losing their jobs instead of Globalization. What are your thoughts on this? (20 seconds to prepare, 60 to present)

Hope this helps. Good luck everyone!

[The video questions are not a substitute for the interview; they are a component of your MBA application.]
