R2 applicant here. I received my acceptance last week.
I really like individual attention Carroll gives to the students, and the campus atmosphere was calm but lively.
Haven't made my final decision yet, since I'm still waiting for other schools that I applied to, but I'm definitely leaning towards BC.

R2 applicant here. Received my interview invite earlier this week. I have scheduled my on-campus interview for next Friday, 02/24. Hoping for the best.

Can anyone share their interview experience?

You should have your interview on the 3rd floor of Fulton Hall.
The interview is based on the resume, and the interviewer is usually a 2nd year student. Keep in mind that he/she only looked at your resume prior to the interview, and did not read your whole application.
There aren't any surprise questions. If you look through general interview questions and get ready for them, you should be okay.
My interview lasted about 45 minutes. Everybody in the office seemed very friendly.
Good luck on your interview. :)

Had my on-campus interview this morning with a second year MBA student. Standard interview questions, nothing out of the ordinary. Hoping for the good news now.. :)

BC has a beautiful campus and a very enthusiastic community. Hopefully I can start here this Fall!

No, but I have been working in the Detroit metro area for the last three years.

Anyone going for the BC Business Days?

I applied for Round 3, submitted my application on March, 15th, and was extended an interview 3 days later. I think it seems like a good start.

I am preparing for my interview now. I would appreciate if you could give me some advice on the interview process. Did they ask the traditional questions (Why MBA, Why now, Why Carroll, Career goal, Leadership experience, Teamwork) or were there some unexpected questions for you?

If you take just a short time to look through the previous threads (which are really not a lot for BC), you will easily find the answers to your questions.

Congrats on your acceptance!

I got my acceptance letter on April, 5th. I submitted for Round 3, on March, 15th, got my interview invite on March, 18th. I feel really excited now!

I got a scholarship too, but I am thinking about asking the school for GA or TA. Did you ask for additional GA or TA from the school?
