Hey guys- Pretty easy interview questions. Not sure they are the same for everyone, but they are standard questions, like challenges you have faced and what you add to the community. Hope that helps!

For the waitlisters, we should get an answer by May 12th.

How do you know that? Not to rain on anyone's parade but last year people were accepted off the waitlist as late as July. Is there any indication that all waitlisters will hear by May 12?

As far as I understood from the WL manager, I would say that waitlisted people will get an answer by may 12th. I am not saying the final answer, but an update for better or for worse, of their application.

Hi all, I just let SOM know that I will be attending a different program, so I hope that opens up a spot for one of you WLers! Best of luck to all.

I'm slightly late to the GMATClub game (longtime lurker though).

1. I'm an R3 applicant. Are the SOM WLers so far those who applied in R1 and R2 only? Any WLers from R3?
2. If anyone hears back from SOM on their virtual interview status, please do update this thread as soon as you can! :)

Just Finished my video interview.

Procedure:

1 - Follow the link in your email. This will take you to the interviewstream website where you will complete your questions.
2 - Read the details, watch the instruction vid, nothing complicated.
3 - When you click start you'll test your equipment and be offered a test question. Take it, it will give you a feel for the real q's.
4 - Click continue and you'll be given an introduction the the interview by the head of admissions, for me this was actually quite calming and gave me a couple of seconds to breath. The intro implies that not all applicants are given the opportunity to interview and that they are using the system to help reduce carbon footprint. The reputation of Yale for social responsibility leads me to believe that this is probably true, however I'm sure that there is a cost benefit as well so expect other schools to adopt this in the future, particularly for international students.
5 - When you click start the question is both read out by the head of admissions and written on the screen. I read fast so, I got a couple of extra seconds to think about my answer before the recording started.
6 - When the head of admissions finished talking there is a 3, 2, 1, countdown and the recording begins. You'll see a progress bar and a countdown clock. This helped me to frame my answer in the required sixty seconds but made the interview feel frantic and perhaps a bit rushed.
7 - Rinse and repeat for the other two questions.
8 - Click submit, you'll have no opportunity to redo any questions you mess up on so be prepared to give it your best shot first time round.

Thoughts...

I generally approve of this, It's a good way to get some face time with the adcom if visiting is somewhat difficult. The questions are as others have described but with some minor differences so best strategy is to prepare as you would for any other interview but frame your answers in sixty seconds or less.

If anyone still has their interview to complete I hope this helps.

Good luck.

Not to rain on anyone's parade here, but were there any R3 applicants other than those that already got in-person interviews that did NOT get the virtual interview? At first I thought it was a good sign but now I'm thinking they just wanted to do a test run with the software. Also for future reference, I got different questions than those already posted by others.

@NYYankees - are there R3 applicants who've already been admitted/dinged/waitlisted or have had in-person interviews? :shock: Ouch, that's demoralizing if that's the case...

The other way to look at it is was there any one who was not called for non of them.

1. In-person
2. Virtual Interview

Perhaps the virtual interviews were for international R3 applicants only?
