HBS Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 / Adcom / On-Campus

I interviewed with an Adcom and had an observer present. The tone of the interview was conversational, mostly resume-based to begin with and a couple of deeper follow-ups on resume as per HBS’s typical interview style. Nothing was very surprising, although there were two questions that made me think a bit more before I responded. One of the questions had to do with how my client responded to my recommendation as a consultant; the follow-up was, what would I have done as a C-suite executive at the client’s company? The other question was about companies I wanted to join post-business... Read more »

HBS Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 / Adcom / On-Campus

Adcom led interview with no observer. It was completely resume based and focused on my current work experience. No questions like why an MBA or why HBS. The interviewer did research before the interview and asked me very pointed questions about my company. Overall, it’s hard to prepare for this interview with canned answers, so definitely know your resume and application well.

LBS Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 / Alumna / Off-Campus Hub

I interviewed with a recent alumna in the city I’m residing in at a coffee shop for the MBA2025 class. It was a very friendly atmosphere, and my interviewer did her best to put me completely at ease. We had nothing in common professionally or background wise aside from the fact that we reside in the same city. The key questions I remember were: – Tell me about yourself, and why an MBA? – What are your experiences with cultural diversity? In your opinion, what are some difficulties diversity in a workplace can cause? – What is the work achievement... Read more »

Georgetown McDonough Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 / Current Student / Zoom

The interview was pretty informal, but also like a traditional basic job interview. My interviewer was a current student getting her part-time MBA. I had a applied for the full-time program, but our career paths actually matched up pretty well, which was nice. She was clearly a bit new to the process of interviewing, saying something to the effect of “let me pull up the questions that McDonough wants me to ask you.” They were pretty standard: Tell me about yourself. Why McDonough? If you could be boss for the day, what would you do? Tell me about a time... Read more »

Webinar: Why Experiential Learning is Essential to Your MBA Experience – Video Recap

“What is Experiential Learning?” Experiential learning is an engaged learning process whereby students “learn by doing” and by reflecting on the experience.  Within an MBA program, experiential learning can be a vital piece of the curriculum for both career switchers and career boosters alike, as both sets of students can bring more real-life experiences into the MBA curriculum while still in school. Clear Admit partnered with the University of Georgia’s Terry College of Business to discuss this topic and more in a recent webinar event.  We spoke about different ways the Terry MBA program helps students apply academic theory to...

HBS MBA Interview Questions & Report: Round 1 / Adcom / Zoom

Don’t let the HBS Interview information online scare you! I interviewed virtually this morning and had a really pleasant conversation! It just felt like I was talking to someone who shared a passion for my industry and wanted to discuss it in depth. The time flew by and I was generally at ease. 90% of the questions were very specific to my industry. At the end of the conversation I was asked something about one of my ECs and the final question was surrounding what more that I would like to share. Good luck out there! If you know yourself...

My interviewer was both an Alumni and a member of the Admissions committee, but had only previously viewed my resume.

Michigan Ross MBA Interview Questions & Report: Round 2 / Alumnus / Zoom

I was interviewed by an alum – I am unsure of how Ross pairs up interviewers / interviewees, but I was luckily matched with somebody from my industry and location (leading to seamless conversation starters). My interviewer was engaged and very friendly; the entire process felt like more of a conversation than interview. The main questions he focused on were “Why Ross? / Why MBA now? / What will you bring to Ross?” Only one behavioral question was asked (Tell me about a time you influenced somebody that was not a direct report) before he dived into asking about my...

CMU Tepper Interview Questions & Report: Round 3 / Adcom / Zoom

I had a resume based interview for R3 with Anthony Gomez. He was so easy to talk to. During the interview my WiFi went out for like 5 min and he was kind enough to call my cell until my WiFi came back on! Questions were very typical mostly TMAT questions. The only one I didn’t prepare for was: “Tell me a time you made an oversight in your work that had a ripple effect in other parts of the business.” I was able to come up with something that wasn’t my fault, but stood up and took the blame...
