CBS Interview Questions & Report: Early Decision / Alum / Off-Campus

The alum seemed very pleasant and casual. It was a very “fit” type interview, with the alum asking mostly questions about “Why MBA” and “Why my chosen field.” Questions about what clubs I would join as well as why my backup plan was if my initial plan failed were also asked.

I was surprised how nonchalant (in a good way) and chill the alum was. I think CBS probably uses interviews to weed out people with toxic personalities, and that the interview doesn’t play a huge part in the admissions decision.
