Does anyone know anything about the interview process (potential questions, length of interview, number of interviews, etc.?
I am interview with BYU this coming Tuesday (Jan. 31). I'll be sure to report some insights into their process.
Please forgive the delay in my follow-up report. I had a very unusual interview experience with BYU, so take it for what it is worth:
My FIRST interview, Jan. 31, was with their head of finance depart. Despite my VERY strong background in marketing, and the fact I own my own business (very entrepreneurial minded), I indicated my "Track" as finance, as finance is my weakest link of what I bring to the table. I really wanted to bolster that area. Not a sound idea according to the guy I interviewed with (and for good reason). He couldn't understand why in the world I would want to do such a thing, and I had a very hard time trying to explain my goals/desires during the interview. Let's just say it went horribly. Roughly ~30 minutes. It seemed he didn't have the least bit interest in me.
Fast forward a week, I received an inivitation to attend a formal "campus visit" last Friday, which was a very nice day-long event with many other candidates (most of whom had been accepted or close to being accepted). Not sure how many prospectives were there, maybe 50-60 ?? Anyway, last week i received an invitation to come BACK for a second interview, which was today. Much different experience this time, that is for sure. Met with head of marketing, ~15 min. interview for him to be satisfied that I would declare marketing as my official track, rather than finance, ha. He of course asked the standard questions again, Why BYU, career goals, etc. I was much more prepared this time, went great. So we'll see what happens. He didn't say when exactly I would hear back, but he did mention that I'm basically in, that he would give his full recommendation and that the admin panel would have an answer for me soon.
Like I said, very interesting, unique experience that I had. Take it for what it is worth. Good luck to everyone still waiting to hear back.
HI, did you hear back from them? I have an interview this Tuesday with the Marketing Prof since my focus is Marketing. I know that they'll ask about my short and long term goals and reasons for choosing my focus etc. What other questions were you asked? personality wise? did he ask about your strengths and weaknesses? tricky questions?
