Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
If you can visit / interview just after the deadline, then chances are that they still wouldn't have started working on your application anyway. So perhaps it's not a bad idea to visit and interview just after the deadline.
Hi aau, Yes I can interview after the deadline but basically I am trying to visit and interview on the same trip. And it looks like it wont be possible before the deadline. So my question is, does it matter whether I interview/visit before or after the deadline?
Thanks for the quick response
i'm looking at the admissions calendar: for R1 you've got till nov 20 to do your interview, and it's totally ok to wait until then. That's the official word.
In a more unofficial sense, club members have talked about the value of visiting a school before submitting the app - more fodder for your essays, shows you're interested, etc. But I applied in early January and didn't get here until almost 2 weeks later, and I think things went perfectly well for me. It's up to you, my friend.
My interview is tomorrow--wish me luck! I feel prepared. I'm just worried about being on campus by 7:30am and coherent by 8am. My body is on West Coast time.
I've attached the interview questions I've culled from the internet. Please excuse the crappy formatting. I found it quite helpful and really in line with what most of the Fuqua alum that I've spoken to have mentioned about the interviews. Hope this helps you guys!
All the guys (and girls) who have completed their interviews- any tips/suggestions (thanks for the collection of questions mba2010!). What to expect? Were there any unexpected questions or is it more of a general conversation?
mba2010 - submitted 10/31 and interviewed 10/5
nervousgmat -submitted 11/1 and interviewed 10/2
Your interview will likely depend on the style of the interviewer. It can be very formal (in my case) or very conversational (aaudetat's case). Either way, be prepared for a few behavioral-type questions. mba2010 has most of them covered in her doc.
