If he's Russuan I suggest you start it with "Chio pripersya, chmo?"
It's the equivalent of "How do you do". Bet, he'll be impressed!

Out of curiosity, does anyone know if admissions is rolling once the interview is conducted or does GSB release the decision on Jan 4 for everyone? I'm asking this question because I had to schedule my interview on the last day, Dec 1, and it would suck if admissions is rolling from here on.

Okay, so I had my pelmeni and vodka, I feel totally happy and I am ready to tell you how my GSB interview felt like :-D

My interviewer was a GSB alumnus, a senior executive in an investment company, so we did not have many points of connections professionalwise (me in transit from supply chain management to consulting). Interview was held in his office.

He already mentioned prior to the interview (I met him at the GSB infosession) that his main goal was to evaluate the personality of the applicant. His words: "Another people will evaluate your resume". So, although he had my resume in advance he did not ask very many questions based on it (unlike my K interviewer).

The questions were:
- Describe your typical work day?
- Tell me about you first job/company?
- What is the main goal of supply chain management?
- How did you come to a decision to apply for MBA?
- How would your subordinates describe you as a manager?
- What are the difficult situations you deal with at work?
- What is your favorite hobby? What would you prefer to do in your free time?
Since I answered "Reading" his next questions was:
- What was your favorite book when you was in school?
We discussed for a while my academics achievements (outstanding) and he asked a question about a slight disbalance in my GMAT (Q 82% V 97%). A told him that I am more a communicative person than a number acer, but that I have good analytical skills and am quite capable of dealing with numbers if I put my mind to it.
- What was your favorite undergrad course?
- What are your post MBA goals?
I answered "consulting".
- Do you have any specific companies in mind?
The interesting question was:
- Name b-schools closest to Chicago and most different from Chicago in your opinion?
I also mentioned now and then "why GSB" in my answers.

The interview lasted 50 to 60 minutes, was conducted completely in English.

The overall atmosphere was very relaxed and conversationlike. I really enjoyed it. Actually, most of the time the interviewer was answering my questions:
- What is your experience with the city of Chicago?
- What was your most memorable extracurricular experience in GSB?
- What is your opinion about leadership/teamwork balance in GSB?

The interviewer was very friendly and did not try to get me cornered. Obviously for him it was more important how I answered his questions/behaved, rather than what I actually answered. Don't get me wrong here, he listened really carefully and asked follow-up questions.
