I had my interview today as well. on campus 2nd year student. She asked me to talk about my resume briefly. then 3 questions (teamwork success, conflict resolution, convincing a group). She then briefly asked me to talk about my goals. Finally I asked her a couple of questions. In-n-out in 35 minutes. Very pleasant experience. Short sweet simple and FAIR!!


I had mine today with a second year. He got straight into the 3 questions
Same three questions

I had misunderstood the first question but the gentleman immediately reiterated what he had asked and from there on things went alright. Not sure if that is negative but I am not thinking too much now. Will see what and how it turns out.

couple cross questioning to clarify some things in the story but nothing out of the box

He definitely did not ask me about any unique stuff on my resume. Overall okay experience.

interviewed on campus with 2nd year student today as well. overall it was a pleasant and positive conversation.

the 3 questions i got were what you'd expect as far as mba admissions interviews go, and along the lines of what others have been posting: teamwork in a situation with multiple conflicts, independent pursuit of an objective when others had let it slide, and convincing team members to follow one of my ideas/proposals.

otherwise my interviewer told me a bit about her background and academic/employment path at the beginning, and i asked her some questions about classes, recruiting, and leadership ventures at the end. she provided useful answers to all 3 of my questions, and was clearly pretty happy with her decision to go to wharton.

also, for those who are applying to HCM, my interview with June was conversational and relatively painless. although she was quite frank in pointing out the strengths/weaknesses of my application, she gave me opportunities to expand on the strengths and address the weaknesses, so i felt like i got a fair shake on that front.

as a final note, wharton is known (at least by its grade-non-disclosure-era alums) for its collaborative culture, and those of us with wharton alum friends and acquaintances know that this is one of the things that makes it such a great environment. but its something everyone has to buy into in order for it to work. so any of you out there who have interviewed but are jealously guarding your experiences in the hopes of making things more difficult for your potential future classmates, that might be a sign that you don't belong. just saying :-)

cheers to everyone who has posted their experiences and advice, and good luck to everyone with interviews in the next couple weeks! here's hoping we all get some good news on the 17th...

Had my interview with an Adcom member/Hub yesterday.

The interview lasted for 35-40 minutes. The interviewer was really nice and encouraging throughout. After talking generally for 2-3 minutes, the interviewer told me that we would have some serious questions now and that the interviewer would be writing a lot and that I shouldn't stop or get disturbed on that account. Inspite of that, the interviewer made decent eye contact and did not stop me while I spoke. I was asked three questions with follow-up questions after my initial reply to each of them.

* Tell me about a time when while working in a group, you considered the opinions of others for a task.
* Describe a time when you worked in a team without anyone overseeing your work.
* Explain a time when you persuaded others to your way of thinking, when at first they didn’t agree with your idea.

Then I was asked if I had any questions to ask the interviewer, which went on for another ten minutes.

Will Wharton release all the final results on Dec 17 or will it start sending out rejects/admit soon after completing the interview process? This wait is excruciating!! :x

Hi guys,
I was dinged without an interview. :oops:
I worked with an admission consultant and IMHO crafted a pretty good application. GMAT - 740, UG - cum laude
Do you think there is any point to contact the MBA admissions office for clarification?

Thanks!

MosliGranola said: On November 22, 2010
Quote:
I’ll be blunt: Having had 4 interviews so far, including Wharton, I can say as a candidate that Wharton just hit the trifecta of turn-offs for me. Never mind those who were helped by consultants–the way in which Wharton rolled out the process was wholly unfair to those who had the simple misfortune of interviewing early before the dissemination of the questions.

John just shed light on the second mistake: Simply ignoring their mistake instead of admitting and addressing it. Sandy compares it to BP, but I’m immediately reminded of Monty Python’s Parrot Sketch.

Here is the coup de grâce, which John did not mention: In some interviews (including mine), Wharton simply hired third-party consultants who never set foot in Wharton, let alone attend the MBA.

Knowing the questions in advance, I think my interview went fine. But this “trifecta” provided a stark contrast: I felt I was providing a 30 minute “deposition” to a Wharton stenographer, whereas my interview with a Booth alumni was a highly spirited, 90 minute-long conversation which deeply impressed me. I have no doubt Wharton is still a great program and I’d still be thrilled to attend if I get in. But if my options come down to between Wharton and Booth, I’d have to say Wharton would no longer be my top choice.

Had my interview, it was much more conversational than I thought it would be. Started off with "tell me about yourself and why Wharton." Then 3 behavioural questions, then my questions. Interviewer was 15 mins late though...

Yes I did receive that email. However, i wanted to know whether Wharton will release all its decision on Dec 17 (like they released all the interview invitation on 2 days) or are they going to keep rolling out the decision over 2 weeks (Dec 3- Dec 17)?

It clearly states ON Dec 17. By 5pm, so, literally means ON THAT DATE, but at some time during the day through 5pm.

I posted the question on the S2S forum for clarification. That line indicates the last possible time to receive a decision, but it doesn't say if you can hear before 12/17. I will post the reply when the question is answered.

I believe last year some people got calls the day/night before the deadline, but I haven't checked last year's thread.
