Props to KFBS for being innovative in starting the Online MBA program and aggressively marketing it everywhere (here, facebook, radio, you name it).

But, how do you guys expect this to impact the value of the FT MBA program? Esp as a signaling mechanism for employers

Had an interview at UNC on-campus. Lasted for about 40 mins.No surprise questions. Interviewer made me feel relaxed and was friendly and conversational.
The questions were more about getting to know me... why MBA, why now, why UNC, strengths, weakness, what motivates you etc.

My already great impression about the school was improved further with a campus visit and I would suggest taking on-campus interview as you get to talk to the admissions team member directly. Very different than some of the other schools where you interview with SY student. I experienced at one school a SY student busy taking notes and not paying attention to your answers.

Anyway, hoping for the best result now and awaiting interview invitations from other schools...

Good luck guys.

Heading down for an interview on Tuesday. Excited to get that first admissions decision in!

Any tips on what to expect interview wise? Are the interviews still blind even though they are conducted by members of the adcom?

I had my Emory interview by an adcom and it was pretty much blind. She did not refer to the essays or prepare any question specifically for me.

I had my interview last Monday and it was blind. The interview lasted about 40 minutes and I thought it was pretty standard. Basically walk me through your resume, a few follow up questions, why MBA, why kenan-flagler, and some questions about my leadership style. That's about it!

Good Luck! :)

I had my interview last week (phone), it was blind, although the interviewer had my resume. Nothing out of the ordinary compared to what has already been mentioned...

Good luck to the R2 applicants. It looks like one of the users changed their R2 application status to 'admitted' earlier today. Has UNC started issuing notifications?

Status shows updated on 1/30/2012 I'm pretty sure that's the final result! But like the prev round the decision will probably not come before the decision date. This wait is really killing me now.
