The following Northwestern / Kellogg interview questions and report were submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 1 applicant. Good luck to them! I did my interview on-campus in the afternoon.

My interviewer noted at the very beginning that they wanted to focus on why I made certain decisions, rather than just on the what.

Development of the Whole Person at Georgetown McDonough

Sponsored Content Evelyn Williams, Georgetown McDonough School of Business professor of management, knows that business leaders’ success depends on more than the right credentials and resume. The finesse and style that distinguishes great leaders requires an emotional intelligence that’s hard to teach in a classroom—at least, it’s hard to teach in the abstract. That’s why Williams created the Executive Challenge, a day-long capstone event for her core “Leadership Communications” course, which puts students through simulations of real business situations based on leadership topics she also models throughout the course. Williams’ design for the challenge, which she first introduced while teaching at... Read more »

The Seven Hardest MBA Admissions Interview Questions—and How to Answer Them

We recently shared our four-part series that unpacks all the different types of MBA admissions interviews. Due to the series’s popularity, we’ve decided to up the ante this time around and spend some time deconstructing the absolute worst, totally unfair, just all-around-tough MBA admissions interview questions. How did we do this, you ask? We called on three members of our team—all of whom have significant admissions experience at top schools—to comb through our extensive MBA interview archive and hand pick a set of particularly challenging questions.
