Texas McCombs MBA Interview Questions & Report: Round 3 / First-Year Student / Zoom

Round 3 Zoom interview with a first-year MBA student – I didn’t learn who the interviewer was until only a couple minutes before the interview. Application submitted 3/30, interview invitation received on 4/5, interviewed on 4/9 (still waiting to receive final admissions decision).

Interview was pretty standard – I can’t remember every single question, but everything he asked was covered in other McCombs interview reports here on Clear Admit. I liked the interviewer and we had brief bits going off-script, but he was just reading through a list of questions and typing as I responded. The interview itself lasted 45 minutes, I spent the last 15 minutes after that asking a few questions I had prepared and just chatting about UT/Austin.
