Cornell Johnson MBA Interview Questions & Report: Round 2 / Second-Year Student / Virtual

My interview was very conversational with a 2nd-year student, who was very friendly and professional. He had my resume and some notes from the AdCom.

It was around 30 mins + 15 mins for my questions to the interviewer.

1. Tell me about yourself and your professional background.
2. Why MBA? Why now?
3. What will you add to Johnson’s community?
4. What if your plan A (career path) didn’t work?
5. What are your short- and long-term career goals?
6. Why this career & why this company?

Throughout the interview, the interviewer always made affirmative comments that showed his genuine interest in me as a person and in my story as a professional. He also shared some insights about his MBA journey, challenges and gave it a personal sense by sharing his personal experience in Ithaca. He just confirmed to me my impression about Johnson community being humble, friendly and genuinely helpful.
