Wharton MBA Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 / Adcom / Off-Campus Hub

A Wharton MBA interview report was submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 1 applicant off-campus. Description / location of visit and/or interview atmosphere: Interviewed at the Wharton SF Campus, which is a surprisingly large floor of a building filled with office rooms, classrooms, and a large cafeteria space. Reception was very friendly and offered coffee / tea / juice, and possibly breakfast pastries. Others I would interview with were already there and we were kind of allowed to just wherever we wanted throughout the space. This was a good opportunity to lightly chat about the upcoming interview to calm... Read more »

Wharton MBA Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 / Adcom / Off-Campus Hub

A Wharton MBA interview report was submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 1 applicant on-campus who took part in their Team Based Discussion. I arrived at the interview around 15 minutes early. Was able to meet with fellow interviewees who were part of my Team Based Discussion (TBD) group — I interviewed in a hub city so, at least for my time slot, everyone in the lobby at the time was in my group. The TBD itself went by quickly: we settled into different roles, such as note-taker, timekeeper etc. Overall it felt like a great flow and very... Read more »

Yale SOM MBA Interview Questions & Report: Round 2 / Adcom / Off-Campus Hub

A Yale SOM MBA interview report questions were submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 2 applicant who interviewed off-campus. The interview was held at a hotel (in March 2018), I went in expecting a conference room but once I opened the door it was a huge room with just a table with two chairs on one end (later I learned that it was an actual conference hall). I think I was a little nervous but the room a bit intimidating. The interviewer was an adcom member who had traveled all the way and was interviewing candidates all day. I met a couple of...

The interview was held in a hotel lobby coffee shop (anyone could have heard what we were talking about though no one was really interested). The adcom member was very nice and explained beforehand that the interview would be 45 min long and that she had not seen my... Read more »

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

A U. Chicago Booth MBA interview report and questions were submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 1 applicant on-campus. I had my interview on-campus with a second year student. He arrived promptly and we interviewed in a small room in the admissions office. The interview appeared blind, as he had limited background on my application and appeared to only have my resume. After a brief introduction he asked me to introduce myself, then we spent ~30 minutes on various questions, followed by five minutes of questions for him. The questions were fairly standard. Questions What other activity (other than what I... Read more »

Duke / Fuqua Interview Questions & Reports: Round 1 / 2nd Year Student / On-Campus

A Duke / Fuqua MBA interview report with questions was submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 1 applicant who interviewed on-campus during the Weekend for Women event. Interviewed during Fuqua’s Weekend for Women event, but the interview format was the same as all of their on-campus interviews. I was with a 2nd year student and he was super nice/conversational.

Cornell Johnson MBA Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 / 2nd Year Student / On-Campus

A Cornell Johnson MBA interview report with questions was submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 1 applicant on-campus. I interviewed during Johnson’s Round 1 LEAD event, but the interview process is similar to all of their MBA interviews. My interview was with a 2nd year student and it was pretty brief and conversational. Compared to all of my previous interviews, I was surprised that I wasn’t asked any behavioral type questions during the interview – it was mostly focused on “Why Johnson” and what my post-MBA goals are. Overall, interview only lasted about 30 minutes. Questions Walk me through... Read more »
