Harvard Business School Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 / Adcom / On-campus

The following Harvard Business School / HBS interview questions and report were submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 1 applicant. Good luck to them! Overall, it was a positive experience.

Harvard Business School Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 / Pam Ralston Pam Jensen / on campus

The following Harvard Business School / HBS interview questions and report were submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 1 applicant. Good luck to them!

Went to work (fave project, explain this topic in your industry, why your long term goal). Asked a bit about something I mentioned in my essay,... Read more »

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

The following UPenn / Wharton interview questions and report were submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 3 applicant. Good luck to them! I completed the TBD during the first interview slot of the day.

I had the chance to chat with a couple of people in my group before the interview started, which helped to put my nerves at ease. The second-year interviewers then called us back in groups. Once we were in the room (which has a timer and... Read more »
