I interviewed with one of the adcom officers of McCombs. Out of all my interviews, this one was the only one where I felt very uncomfortable and self-conscious. The moment the interviewer saw me, his demeanor completely changed. He did not seem interested in learning more about me and when I was asking questions about the school or program, he had a very lackluster response. For example, I asked what was the best part about the McCombs culture? His response was, “oh… the people. I really like the people who are in the school.” Normally, interviewers would answer in great detail to ensure you capture the entire picture.
Anyway, some of the questions asked: Why McCombs? Why now? Why MBA? Short-term goals? How would you contribute to the school? What’s the strongest part of your application and what’s your weakest part of your application? What did you discover in your MBA application process?
I received a waitlist decision from McCombs.
