I was wondering whether anybody here interviewed with the Director of Admissions, Jim H.? I am curious to know how he interviews

There is a video of his on this link in which Jim Holmen talks about what they are looking for in the candidates. Maybe useful for u. I lost the exact link.

BTW usually Kelley 2nd years students interview people; u must be special to land up a conversation with Jim

Actually, there is an InsidetheMBA event in Los Angeles this Tuesday. Jim will be the only representative for Indiana on that day, and I guess they decided to interview MBA students around this area. I am kinda freaked about this whole thing to be honest. I am thinking about just telling him I am busy and opt for a skype interview. What do you think bblast? I need your advice!

You should certainly bring your A-games.

I met Jim a couple months ago and he is a very bright, completely down-to-Earth, super-nice guy. Nothing to worry about.

I was admitted to Kelley just before Christmas. I visited some top-tier schools in Chicago and I found that the difference was that those schools seemed to look for reasons to keep students out, whereas Kelley seemed to look for ways to get you in. They are very inviting and open, and their program can rival that of any b-school. My experience with Kelley won me over, away from those Chicago schools.

Can you let me know his interviewing style? Is this like a super formal/direct interview, or is it more free-flowing kind of informal-ish interview?

Interview was A-OK.

Jim is very down to earth and friendly.

1. He asked about my experiences working for company x and y
2. Specific and follow up questions
3. Greatest strength and weakness
4. Biggest achievement
5. Gave me time to ask questions

Done with the interview yesterday with Jim.
As everyone is saying, he is super nice and friendly.
I think I did just alright, nothing to complain about. A lot of laughing and no dead air at all lol.
Back to the interview, it lasts for 45 minutes for me since I arrived early.
Why Kelley?
Why MBA?
Why now?
Strengths?
Weakness?
What would you consider giving up while attending?
Working experience?
What your co-worker would say if you are gone?
What you have contribute to your co-worker and the firm?
Q & A section

It's pretty much more than average questions asked. Hope this help the rest of the candidates and good luck to everyone.
