Stanford GSB Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 / Alum / Zoom

Got an interview invite last week of Oct asking me to schedule it with the alum they paired me with within 7-10 days. Had to follow up with the alum a couple of times to lock down a time and get the Zoom invite. Interview itself was 50 min, with 15 min of that being me asking questions. The interview questions were behavioral, went through maybe 4-5 behavioral questions. After my initial answer for each question there were several follow-ups that were clearly aimed at getting to more of the “EQ” of the story – what was the reaction, was there pushback, how did you feel. I wish I’d prepared more EQ content for my responses because it was my first time considering those questions, so my answers were not as developed as they could’ve been (maybe a sign GSB isn’t for me…). Alum was super friendly and tone of the interview was positive, but I think I could have done better.
