Well after my flight being cancelled, and arriving on campus almost 2 hours after I was originally scheduled to - I was ready for my interview.
I had to wait a while for the second year student to show up so I spent some time talking with Michael Corbett the Admissions Service Rep. and the Director of Admissions stopped by to chat briefly with me because we had been trading e-mails for several weeks.
Then the interview came - I felt like I connected with my interviewer and was prepared from the questions that were posted on GMAT Club. There were not too many surprises and I did feel relaxed for the most part. It was a laid back interview with formal elements.
There were a couple tough questions about my shortcommings (they want to know how I plan to overcome a weakness in quant) and they also had some comments about my essays. The interviewer gave me feedback on my resume and how to overcome some of my weaknesses. I did my best to give him answers that would set the ADCOM's minds at ease but I was a little taken back by the questions regarding my app. I figured that didnt happen in any of the past GMAT clubber interviews so this was new to me.
However overall I felt positive - a little nervous. I also saw the first review of my application that he was reading off of - apparently the reader rated me average on my entire application, GMAT scores, GPA, essays, etc. So I was left wondering how the hell did I get called in for an interview. It was a sobering experience and only time will tell how I did. 14 days to go, man this has been a rough quest for an MBA and I am sure it gets harder - but wow, this has been a challenge.
Oasis, I guess its a good sign that he drilled you on weaknesses during the interview.. You dont want him to think about your weaknesses later on.. You had a chance to speak about it which is a good sign..
can you share your profile with us? I vaguely remember you getting 640 on GMAT.. Did you give it again?
