UT Austin / McCombs MBA Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 / Second Year Student / On Campus

A UT Austin / McCombs MBA interview questions and report were submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 1 applicant. The interview took place on a Friday when the school was also offering tours, student and alumni panels, etc. After meeting my interviewer, we walked to a small room with one table with two chairs; I’m guessing it was a team study room. The interview was blind but it looked like my interviewer had made a few notes on my resume, so I believe she had spent a couple minutes with it before we talked. While we were performing the interview, my interviewer... Read more »

A UT Austin / McCombs MBA interview questions and report were submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 1 applicant.

His questions were around academic background/pre-MBA career/post-MBA career plans. He had access to my resume but that was it. A mix of standard MBA-related... Read more »

Wharton Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 / Second-year student / On-campus

A Wharton interview report with questions was submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 1 applicant on-campus. I arrived at my interview about 15 minutes early. The lobby was filled with interviewees. People recommended arriving early to bond with your TBD group, but for me, it was impossible to know who my TBD teammates were. I guess if you are interviewing at a hub city the situation might be a bit different. I also don’t think it matters too much as people were all very nice to each other. Team Based Discussion (TBD) Our TBD went very quickly and smoothly.... Read more »
