USC Marshall Interview Questions & Report: Round 5 / Adcom / Skype

As others have already written, the interview was very laid-back and casual. Elaine was very kind and started with some small talk, which put me at ease. The questions were exactly as others have already posted, very straight-forward: resume walk-through, why MBA, why Marshall, what are you most proud of?, what do you do in your free time?, do you have any questions for me? The questions she asked only lasted about 15 minutes and the rest of the time was spent with me asking her my questions. It was a very positive experience!

MIT Sloan Interview Questions & Report: Round 3 / Adcom / Skype

It went pretty well. The interviewer asked me about three questions in the thirty-minute time frame and it was over before I knew it. One behavioral question she asked was about a time I had to push back or experienced conflict with a superior in the workplace. She seemed to like my answers but you can never be so sure. Hoping for the best!!

HBS Interview Questions & Report: Round 2 / Adcom / Off-Campus

I initially scheduled a Skype interview, but finally decided to fly to Dubai for an in-person interview, which is better for me as I was not sure about how convincing I seem on a webcam.  I arrived 20 minutes prior the interview as requested and the lady called me 1 min before the interview time, allowing me to enter the room and start on time. The discussion started with 2 min news related topics and we jumped into a resume-based interview. The questions are below. Overall, the person was very friendly, no softball questions, but a lot of followup questions.... Read more »

I participated in the school’s Super Saturday interview day on Saturday, February 1st. My interview took place at 11:15AM, and afterward the school provided lunch and a half-day of programming. I loved having the chance to connect with potential classmates, see the new building, and learn about the school’s offerings. It was super informative and an efficient use of time. My interview was with a second-year student, also a woman, and it was blind. We went into a private room and she had a printed copy of my resume that she had already read through. Overall, the questions were fairly... Read more »

COVID-19 has wreaked havoc across the globe, and MBA admissions has not been immune to the impact of social distancing measures; admitted student events, campus visits, and school travel have been cancelled or taken virtual for the time being.

Chicago Booth Interview Questions & Report: Round 2 / Alumnus / Off-campus

Very casual interview, more behavioral in nature. Was not application based, interviewees are asked to send their resumes to the interviewer ahead of time. Asked about previous work experience, talked about some of the projects that I have worked on and interactions with team members. Asked about my goals and motivations for an MBA and why Booth. Nothing out of left field, very conversational.

Chicago Booth Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 / Alumnus / Off-campus

The interview was blind and was conducted at a local coffee shop not far from my home. I received the interview invite during the last day of the invite release, and it took around 1 week to schedule the interview with an alumnus. From the start, it was clear that the interview was meant to be more conversational and casual, and the setting was perfectly conducive for that objective. The questions I was asked were fairly straightforward and standard, and I didn’t feel that there were any “gotcha” moments. It really seemed that the interviewer was trying to gauge my...

Michigan Ross Interview Questions & Report: Round 2 / Second-Year Student / On-Campus

Out of all the schools I applied to, Ross by far had the most structured day and was the most well-coordinated, well-planned and immersive experience. I really appreciated this about Ross. Everything from the complimentary notebooks, breakfast spread, tight schedule and availability of adcom/students really made a very good impression on me. Check-in started early in the day and the whole group of interviewees were then split into two groups to interview. My interviewer was a current student who was very engaging and well-meaning. No surprise questions here besides going through your resume, normal behavioral questions, why Ross and questions... Read more »

Brief on LT and ST goals, followed by why MBA? 3. Why Johnson? 4.

NYU Stern Interview Questions & Report: Round 3 / AdCom / Zoom

The interview was conducted via Zoom due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The interviewer was a member of AdCom who was very friendly. Overall, the interview had a very conversational tone and was not stressful at all. We mostly covered standard business school questions and there were very few behavioral questions, but this could be because they did not have any, given what they saw in my application. Here are the questions as best as I can remember them: 1. Icebreaker diving into one of my Pick Six pictures/captions. 2. Tell me about your current role and why you selected it.... Read more »
