A friend of mine went for an interview at Yale SOM and was asked to read something on the spot and do an analysis..A quick review of case analysis is perhaps in order (although I've never heard of this from anywhere else).

Here are a few more (not all unique...but I hope it helps).

-Name one company that you think is successful and one company that you think isn't.
-How do you fit with different cultures
-Why did I choose to do this undergraduate school ?
-Highlights and disappointments in your current job ?
-Why and how did you start to do this extracurricular activity ?
-Why did I choose my undergraduate college and what other options did I have.
-What challenges I had when I entered my college.
-He kept asking for more details on one of my project, from start to finish and wanted exact financial details, etc.



What happens to international students? What are the options other than a telephone interview?

Depends on the school, but many schools offer off-campus interview options both domestically and internationally.

Hi,
I am not sure whether this is a right forum. (Posted in Columbia thread as well.)

What is the gap an applicant can have between the interview invite and the original interview?
I understand this might depend on the interviewer's schedule. But ideally, can the applicant plan it after a week or 10 days from the day the interview invite has been received?

Are there any general advices as well in this regard?

Thanks

hi all
this is a very lame Q, but I have to ask.
What exactly does the interviewer mean by " tell me about a teamwork experience". Isn't that a very abstract questions? Most of the projects I do are in teams, so what do they want to hear specifically? Conflict management? Multicultural teams? Dealing with someone difficult?
what would make a good teamwork example?
thanks

my take on the ques - Give an example of the time u were a part of/led a team. Typically the response should include the project assigned, how was work delegated your role and responsibilities, how effective the team was as in were the people chosen appropriate for the task, what problems were faced and how they were solved by the team, any conflicts, how was ur overall experience (on the lines of 'i learnt ...')

When your interviewer says "Walk me through your resume..", do you go choronologically - i.e. start with undergrad move on to first position then second etc... or go in the order of the resume - i.e. Here is where I AM NOW but how I got here is ....

And do you work in the EC's/Personal interests into the Resume walk through? Or is it just exercise in determining your professional history?

Typically it's in reverse chronological order. You tell them this is where I am, and prior to this, i did xyz.
I usually don't mention extra curricular in the resume walkthrough , but I weave in the reasons for my career transition here through something I did outside of work, and that covers the question (for a career switcher) of "what in your background supports your interest for changing to abc career. "
