I was interviewed by an admission committee member and a there was a a student observer in the room with us. A few questions I was asked was. 1) What are a few companies you are targeting? 2) How are you planning to leverage your experience to gain an internship? 3)Share a time when you were an effective leader. The interview went by pretty quickly. I actually wish it could have been longer.

Good luck!


Hi

Does anyone knows GT's interview policy? From the above question, looks like they are conducting an non-blind interview since the interviewer is quite familiar with your career goal and more concerned about how could applicants leverage their strength?

Thanks for answering!

Did any round 1 admits attend this past Admit Weekend event? If so please share your experiences! I wasn't able to join so I think I'll see you round 2 folks in April.

Best of luck to you guys in your interviews!

I just got an email with the subject "Georgetown MBA Important Update". Did those of you who already got interviews receive this email before your invite?


Oddly enough I just received this email today, basically saying that they have received my application, but I was invited to interview about 3 weeks ago, so I kind of figured they had my app haha

Is it fair to assume invites go out randomly rather than at set days/times?

Anyone else having issues logging into the myGeorgetown page? I tried a couple of times today and there seems to be some sort of a systems error?
I couldn't log into my application page either so was wondering if anyone else had the same problem?

Need help in understanding which college is better.

I got admits from Georgetown University as well as University of Illinois. I am from India, 3 years IT work experience (Tech Background). Can anyone help me make the decision which one to join. Please reply ASAP as I have to send my initial deposit within next few days.

Georgetown offered no scholarship.
Illinois has offered $20000 for two years.

I am finding it difficult to make the decision. Any valuable information would be welcome.

I am in the same boat as sreekanth1987.

Got accepted to Penn State University with full scholarship for both years plus a graduate fellowship that would roughly pay for my room and board as well! I would literally not need to take a single loan and wouldn't touch my savings much. Georgetown on the other hand has offered me no scholarship so I would need to finance the entire program which is roughly $155,000.

I would like to work in consulting after I graduate (interested in the energy space but open to any field as well). Preferably would like to stay in the Northeast but would not be opposed to moving out West (read California). Any advice is much appreciated!

I would recommend both of you consider what type of environment in which you would like to live. State College/Champaign are both effectively college towns. I've never been to Champaign, but State College is basically just the school, housing, and whatever businesses are needed to support it. Especially for an international student, that might not be as comfortable of an environment (but that is for you to decide, not me). It does have more options for $1 pizza slices than any place I've ever been, though. DC on the other hand is a legitimately international city (probably with much better Indian food than a college town), and McDonough is probably the most prestigious school of the three. Personally, I would choose McDonough, but I know for sure that I want to live in a city. You guys just have to consider all pros and cons and personal preferences.

I have a family member who is an alum of U. Illinois MBA with a background in tech. From what I understand, its pretty solid in terms of placement for that industry, I dont know anything about how it compares with GT or PSU.

One thing, for sure, is that basically a free education versus 150K+interest and loans is tough to pass up. I would only do it if the placements and growth prospects are comparable (which I suspect would be) to what a GT MBA would offer.

Good luck/congrats!

If Georgetown decides not to invite an applicant for interview (reject case), will they declare it before deadline?

Also, is there any way to correct the application tracker on page 1? it is using 2012 data

From my conversations with a couple of students, I understand PSU places well in Supply Chain/Marketing roles. One gentleman is pursuing consulting in the federal sector.

For what it's worth I've heard MBB-type consulting firms are picking up their OCR at Gtown. Hope that helps.

Done with f2f interview with Associate Dean in New Delhi. All questions were standard..why MBA, career goals, Why GTown, team exp and leadership skills. At the end of interview she asked me about the other schools that I have applied. why did she ask that?

The result will be out by mid-march, long wait. All the best everyone. :)

US applicant here. Did a f2f too, the adcom said that he didn't have a "set" of questions but that it would be more like a conversation...and then proceeded to ask all of the normal questions. The only unique one I got was to tell of an experience I had interacting with different cultures and how I was able to resolve any conflicts--probably indicative of Georgetown's diverse student body and the global interactions within the program.

Just finished my Georgetown interview, and it didn't go as well as I would have wanted. Started very nervous, then could grip the tone much better... But I think it was too late: only 30 minute interview. :cry:

If it makes you feel better... Did my interview at a hotel, the confirmation email said to wait in the lobby for the interviewer. Got there 20 mins early. Waited. And waited. Now 5 mins past my interview appointment time. Ask hotel concierge to call interviewer's room to let him know his appointment was here. Concierge says "oh! you're supposed to meet him at the rooftop restaurant." Showed up 10 mins late to my interview. Fml.

I totally feel your pain. Same thing happened to me! I got there 20 minutes early, and told the concierge I was there for an interview with Georgetown. She told me to just have a seat and wait. I waited... and waited... and it's now 15 minutes past my interview appointment time. I thought maybe the previous interview was running long. Then, the concierge got a phone call. She asked me if I was waiting for an interview (isn't that what I told her when I got there?). She said to meet the interviewer on the roof. Yeah. 20 minutes late. The interviewer seemed very understanding anout thsituation and said that the concierge should have informed to let me know to head on up to the roof - that iit was probably a miscommunication. Shortest interview, ever. Hopefully this won't be held against us!

I visited McDonough last week and the impression I got was that it's a school on the way up. I saw people getting internships and f/t gigs at Deloitte and a couple of other consulting firms but I didn't meet anyone who got into a white shoe firm. I think a few McDonough grads got into BCG last year though, which is not bad for a school of its size and ranking. The DC location and the Georgetown name is pretty powerful.

I also interviewed at the rooftop restaurant in LA and to be honest struggled a bit too. I started off okay with the small talk but when it came down to it I froze up a little... it was my first admissions interview though so I'm sure I'll do better at Kelley this week. In retrospect the questions weren't too hard (my questions were about teamwork, cultural diversity and leadership) but for some reason my brain wasn't cooperating at the time.


I interviewed with adcom staff today and i thought it went alright. My questions were exactly the same (teamwork, cultural diversity and leadership) and the usual walk me through your resume, long term n short term goals, why mba, why now and why g-town. I was a bit nervous but tried to keep the conversation engaging and she certainly helped. Overall it was a very informal interview and nothing unexpected crept up. Now the long excruciating wait begins!!!!! :|

Everyone gets final notification on deadline day, which is March 15 for R2.
