Type of Interview? hub interview with adcom. Type of questions? Only 3 behavioral questions - teamwork, disagreement, leadership and then detailed questions based on my answers. Stressful or serious? Not at all, my interviewer was very polite and friendly Kept writing all the time? Yes and told me in the beginning itself and he would do so Could I have done better? Yes. I was prepared with some broad stories but had to answer the detailed questions on the spot and could have done better on that front. I hope this was helpful and all the best to those yet to interview.

Thanks for sharing! You did well () now just hang tight How long was the interview for? It seems difficult to dive into details of 3 stories in about 20 minutes (since some time is used up in answering your questions at the end) Anyway, All the best!

Just the 3 main questions straightaway So that means either the interviewer has looked on your resume and probably didn't have any questions or He/She was not interested in knowing your achievements or what motivates you but rather focus on your past behavior.

@goldgoldandgold, I don't agree with the achievements part as you get a chance to speak about some of your achievements while answering the behavioral questions

You make a good point.

I am concerned on number of minutes one should speak for each of these questions. Given your experience today - how many minutes on an average did you speak on each of those questions. I understand that adcom asked you follow up specific questions. I don't want to speak speak and speak, but it seems like with the behavioral questions, we do have to speak and speak in detail. Would you tend to agree with this thought?

Thanks for sharing again. It helps us all here

Thanks so much for this feedback! I will be having my interview Friday on campus and will be more than willing to share my experience for all those folks going next week!

Hey Did any of you ask for the business card from the adcom? Did you send a thank you note later?
