Chicago Interview [#permalink] New post 15 Nov 2006, 10:35
Ladies and Gents report as follows:

Alum interview, at his office, 1hr long

The mood of the interview was very formal. He followed the instructions very closely.

Started with standard questions:
Talk about career path to this point.
Why 1)MBA 2) goals/carer path 3) why Chicago

Asked for more detail about why Chicago he was really digging for specifics here.

Then asked me his behavioral questions.

Describe a time when you were challenged ethically.
Asked what my definintion of the term Leader was. Then followed up with when was a time when I lived up to my definition.

I am a Marine infantry officer, so the next 5 or so, questions were dealing with my two deployments to Iraq and our nations policy on Iraq. This was hard to navigate maintaining political neutrality.

Finished up by asking my gmat score then let me ask questions.

I left feeling good, but not great. Wondering how it went????

Hope this helps. I'll answer any specific questions that I can.

He shouldn't have made you swim in political waters. If I were him I would have just asked how that was.

Sounds like you were grilled, but I am sure you did great.
Yeah, asking a soldier about the politics is mean.

I couldn't tell if he just wanted to know what I thought from being there, or if he was trying to determine where I stood politically. He asked what I think we need to do to solve the problem. I gave him my best shot, but was secretly thinking, if the brightest minds and most experienced Generals in the country are having difficulty what makes you think I will be able to solve this! He might have been just trying to see if I had made an attempt to analyze the situation from my own point of view. Who knows? Maybe that is just a cop out though?!>
