how was your interview? standart questions or something worth mentioning?
by the way- I will have an interview via skype- international student- not convenient interview places, etc.


Hi Westsew, how did you request for an interview via skype? I'm also an international student and will have to spend a big amount to interview at the nearest city. I was told previously that they really prefer live interview.

Thanks!

Yes, sure they prefer in person interviews but I mailed them and informed of my situation. I told I was not sure if I would be able to secure a visa on time. (I needed at least a Schengen visa). So I was offered one.
did you scheduled one? when is your interview?

It went well! All the questions were very standard: Walk me through your resume, why Georgetown, why MBA, tell me about a leadership experience, and strengths and weaknesses. She also gave me time to ask questions at the end. The whole atmosphere was very relaxed and overall it was a very conversational interview, not intimidating at all.

Hope this helps! And good luck! :)

Hey All;

I have an on-campus interview scheduled for the 19th of February. I had a question regarding resume length. The one that I had submitted was two pages long based on the double line space and the 10 point font specified by Georgetown. I was wondering whether the "updated resume" for the interview can be the same (2 pages long) or whether it would be better to make it just one page. Any thoughts would be appreciated! Thanks!

2-pages should be more than enough.

Thanks for the quick response. But my question was actually whether it would be better to shorten my resume down to 1 page fromthe 2 pages that I had submitted to Georgetown. Thanks!

I have never even considered making my resume more than one page. I think one page will better highlight your strengths/experience; in addition I'm sure most interviewers will not want to review two pages.

If your resume is double spaced make it single spaced. They didn't tell the interviewers that double spacing was a requirement for the application (actually its probably a typo on the application). I was talking to a friend the other day who had just interviewed someone with a double spaced resume and his comment was "She had a really impressive resume 4 years at CEB, 2 years somewhere else, etc....but why was it double spaced?"

Hi.

Lurking for many months, decided to join in the nerve-racking wait with you.

Add me to the roll call, submitted 1/1/2010, invited to interview 1/21.

My interview is on Sunday, Frankfurt pretty excited about it and kind of nervous.

Any additional tips?

Ditto! (i couriered it though) i got the same notification, but spoke with my interviewer and another adcom member afterward about this and they said they'd look into the matter. i'm going to wait until monday for an update, else will probably resend and email them a copy as well!
