UVA Darden Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 / Adcom / Zoom

It was a pretty relaxed interview! It was with an adcom member, and she set the general expectation that I’d be doing most of the talking as I walked her through my profile and reasons for doing an MBA. It was also blind, and she had not seen my resume at all.

Here’s what was asked:

1. Tell me about yourself. (This went on for quite long, I wanna say 15-20 minutes, and I covered my background to current role/ECs with some follow-ups in between)
2. Why are you pursuing an MBA, and why is now the right time?
3. Why Darden?
4. What are your weaknesses, and what have you done to address them?
5. Do you have any questions for me?

All in all, the interview ran for about 40 minutes. No behavioral prompts, which was actually a bit surprising!)
