Yale SOM MBA Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 / Second-year student / On-campus

There was a full day of events with other prospective students who had been invited to interview. There was a current student panel, mini-classes / lectures given by professors, and an SOM as well as Yale University campus tour. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming. My interview was with a 2nd year student which seemed to be the standard for the on-campus interviews. It lasted 30 minutes but we talked informally after for about another 15. I think they try and standardize the interview questions as much as possible with so many going on at once because my interviewer told... Read more »

Harvard Business School MBA Interview Questions & Report: Round 2 / Adcom / On-Campus

The Harvard MBA admissions interview was really relaxed — I truly got the sense my interviewer was just looking to get to know me. The visit was good. There were lots of activities (classes, lunch with the director, tours, chats, etc) during the day you could pick to be a part of. I found that everyone else interviewing was also really nice. We all chatted in the waiting area 15 minutes before our interview and right up until we each got pulled into the private rooms with our interviewers. My interviewer was very sweet — kept telling me that none... Read more »

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 »

UVA Darden Interview Questions & Report: Dec (EMBA) / Adcom / Sands Family Grounds (Rosslyn)

December EMBA Interview at UVA Darden with Adcom. Very conversational. We toured the Sands Family Grounds first, then found an empty room to pop into for the interview.

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 »
