Understanding the MBA Admissions Interview, Part III

In this, our third installment of our interview series, which we first launched two years ago and are reproducing for this season, we’ll take a closer look at one of the more recent interview permutations—the group interview or team-based discussion. You can view the first two parts of this interview series here: open interviews versus interview invites and blind interviews versus non-blind interviews. What Is the Team-Based Discussion? A few years ago, the admissions office at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School partnered with the Wharton Innovation group to launch a new evaluation method, the team-based discussion (TBD). As its name... Read more »

Understanding the MBA Admissions Interview – Part II

This is the second in a four-part series on the MBA admissions interview that we produced last season, and are releasing again for this season. In case you missed it, view Part I here.  Okay—now that you’re clear on open interviews and interviews by invitation, let’s get into some of the finer points. What’s this about blind versus non-blind interviews, you ask? Some schools believe strongly in the notion of blind interviews, which means that your interviewer will know nothing about you in advance of the interview other than what appears on the résumé you give them.

GMAT: The Importance of Drills

If you’ve ever played a sport, you probably have a love-hate relationship with drills.

GMAT drills and practice tests function in a similar way; practice tests are the bright and shiny measures of progress while drills get resigned (or often... Read more »
