Interview Questions & Reports
Was a typical zoom interview. You enter the call at your scheduled time. Blind interview by a second-year student. Seems randomly chosen, regardless of your background. 1. Took a good 3-4 minutes chit-chatting; talking about football games, travelling 2. Run through the resume, but focus on the work experience 3.... Read more »
Felt pretty informal. My guess is that these interviews are largely assessing fit, since fit is a huge deal for Tuck and the 2nd-year students conduct them. I got the sense that this was more about “can I imagine you sitting next to me in class” than “will you crack... Read more »
I was waitlisted without an interview. Just finished the pre-recorded video interview that is required after accepting the waitlist. The pre-recorded format gives me a lot of stress as the timing was strictly defined, and I don’t know what kind of questions was going to be asked. I’m sharing my... Read more »
I was surprised how conversational the interview was. She clearly had just read my application and thus it felt very natural to speak about my goals and plan. She absolutely had a few questions she wanted directly answered, but there was a flow to the conversation vs. Q&A, Q&A, Q&A,... Read more »
After signing in, I got the opportunity to test my computer and prepare two sample questions. For the real questions, there would be a video of an Admission Officer saying the prompt and the text below it. After the video ended, a timer would start with time to prepare the... Read more »
Interview lasted shorter than expected – I shared a copy of my resume prior to our meeting, but it seemed like he never read my resume. Right off the back he started with a comment saying, he interviewed 3 applicants during this admissions cycle and they have all been admitted... Read more »
Interview was super fast, 20 minutes Interviewer showed up about 5 minutes after scheduled time (it was the first time slot on a Monday) and seemed to be in a hurry. I never saw anyone introduce themselves so fast. It seemed I had hit the 2x speed button. But I... Read more »
Interview went very smoothly, the interviewer set a welcoming and warm atmosphere which made me feel much more comfortable. I also loved that almost all questions were straightforward about specific things from my application, so I basically knew how to answer them. Questions/talking points -Specific thing about my essay, family... Read more »
My interview was with an admissions director via a CBS platform where you could do a video chat. The interview was relaxed, the interviewer was nice and towards the end the interview felt more like a conversation. 1. Tell me about yourself. 2. Why MBA and why CBS? 3. Is... Read more »
My interview for LBS was with an alum, and was conducted over Zoom. There are 3 main components of the interview – 1) Fit questions asked by the interviewer 2) The 10-minute case 3) Questions for the interviewer I am wary to put a time limit to it, as I... Read more »
Very casual interview. The only questions which threw me off were the last two. Questions: – Walk me through your resume. – Why do you want an MBA? – Tell me more about your short-term goal. – What is your back-up plan if your goals don’t work? – How will... Read more »
Interview style was quite casual, but the interviewer (alumnus) was often asking me follow-up questions on my answers. Questions: – Tell me about you and your story. – Why’d you leave your last job? – What are your goals? – How can an MBA help? – Why Kellogg? – What... Read more »
Like all interviews this year, my team-based discussion was hosted on Zoom by two second-year Wharton students. As everyone logged onto the platform, we introduced ourselves and kept some light chatter. Once the interview officially kicked off, the two second-year students kept their video on and watched us carry out... Read more »
Interview was very light, conversational, lasted around 30 minutes. I had heard that interviews were very serious, however felt lighthearted. The interviewer was genuinely interested in getting to know me past the information on the application. Asked about my hobbies, what I liked to do for fun. Did not ask... Read more »
Interview was done online. Very friendly interview, be prepared to answer mostly behavioral questions. 30 minutes will be over before you know it – practicing your STAR’s (Situation, Task, Action, Result) before the interview is absolutely a must. Overall, be prepared to answer 3-6 behavioral questions around collaboration/teamwork and why... Read more »
