CMU Tepper Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 / Adcom / Zoom

I interviewed in mid-October. It was conversational and she was easy to talk to and put me at ease. She started off letting me know this was to get to know my professional background better and that it was a blind interview, she only had my resume. The questions were similar to what I had prepared for using this site so I wasn’t surprised, no curveballs. Questions were as such:

Tell me about current position
Why MBA (I went ahead and answered ‘why now?’ as well though she didn’t specifically ask)
Plan B
Time I had a knowledge gap and what I did
Teamwork and when we had to come to a compromise
Leadership style and how I mentor others
Why Tepper

We took most of the time with the interview but she did stop us and ask if I had any questions. Asked only two questions as the interview was scheduled for 30 minutes and we were at time, but I felt I could have continued asking and she wouldn’t have minded though I wanted to be respectful of her time.
