Interviewed 9/28. Lots of behavioral questions, including "How would you describe your leadership style", "Can you describe a time you received constructive feedback", "Can you describe a time you needed to depend on someone", "Can you describe a time you had to engage with different points of view and it was challenging or rewarding", "Can you describe a time you faced a challenge of an ambiguous situation and how did you handle it", "Can you think of any challenges you might face during the MBA", "Are there any courses or initiatives you want to get involved in at Kellogg". Interview went for about an hour and interviewer left lots of time to very honestly answer a lot of my questions.
