Hello my dear fellas,

I just had my interview two hours back. I cannot express how much I enjoyed it. John Hughes took the interview. What an amazing man! Whether I make it or not (my essays sucked), the interview is worth it :)


The interview lasted just more than half an hour. Questions asked:

1. Where did I grew up?
2. Question on my extra-curricular interests
3. Question on my academics
4 How did I get into my first job?
5. What do I like about my work?
6. What am I most proud of?
7. My most significant achievement
8. Short-term/long-term goals
9. Am I satisfied with my GMAT score?(he didn't know it. But he will see it in two days)
9. Why KF?

He started the interview with introducing himself and his background. At the end of the interview he showed me the notes he has taken(obviously, they are not clearly visible) and told me that he is going report all those notes to the adcom. He told me he would give a good score for my communication skills. He also explained how the admission process works. He told me about his experiences with KF, and what makes it a special place. He finally said, if I make it, then do drop him a mail once I am there so that he can catch up with me. Overall a great experience.

If any of your interviews coming up, please feel to PM me if I can be of any help!

Thanks,
Prodizy

Did anyone else just receive the cool welcome video player/tablet thing in the mail? It doesn't really say anything new, but it was the first one of these I have seen and it seems like a cool idea.

Just had my Skype interview with Sherry Wallace, the admissions director. Usual questions. Lasted for half an hour. She did mention that applications are at a 5 year high though.

It was a prelude to the 'most important question committee considers ' (her words) - why me when they are comparing different applications.

The official decisions by mail come only on the decision notification date... However, some people may start receiving calls from maybe around the 11th or 12th depending on who they were interviewed by..

FROM Kenan- Flagler Admissions Blog: Student Perspective: The Weatherspoon Lecture with Jeb Bush
Image
Jeb Bush, former Governor of Florida, speaks at the annual UNC Kenan-Flagler Weatherspoon Lecture.

Written by David Bookhout (MBA’14)

UNC Kenan-Flagler welcomed former Florida governor Jeb Bush as the featured speaker at the annual Weatherspoon Lecture on Jan. 27.

 

The evening began with a small group session for the Dean’s Fellows at which we were able to ask Gov. Bush about his views on topics like leadership and foreign affairs. In our discussion, he stressed the need to lead by example and to outwork the competition. His opinions on the contrasting leadership styles and economic policies of Latin American countries were especially interesting because policies toward this region have a profound impact on South Florida, where I lived prior to enrolling at UNC Kenan-Flagler and where Gov. Bush resides today. As we discussed how the more economically open countries of the Pacific Alliance are leaping ahead of their more closed neighbors, Bush spoke of the need to increase trade with this important region of the world.

Former Governor Bush meets with Deans Fellows before the Weatherspoon Lecture (the author is seated 3rd from Mr. Bush’s right).

 

During his Weatherspoon speech, “America’s Promise in Uncertain Times,” Bush covered four topics: immigration, education, energy security and economic freedom. As a former accountant, I found his discussion of economic freedom to be particularly thought-provoking. Bush spoke about how the increasing amount of regulation in our country is stifling innovation, especially among smaller businesses. The cost of compliance has become too onerous for smaller firms, he says, limiting their ability to grow through innovation.

 

After the speech, Gov. Bush attended a reception at The Kenan Institute where we had a chance to chat one-on-one. A highlight of the evening was conversing about the starkly different political climates in Venezuela and Columbia – countries where we both had lived – in Spanish.

 

View the Weatherspoon Lecture featuring Gov. Bush and read more about the talk.

Does anyone know who will be the in-charge admission officer to receive the updated email from waitinglist candidates. I interviewed with alumna so I have no idea whom I should send the updated email to. Thanks in advance.

Sherry told me exactly the same that they have exactly 29% of applications growth this year. The reason she mentions that is that this fact positively affects the future class of 2016, i.e. UNC would have a better and larger pool of applicants to choose from that would result in a higher quality class. However for us this means a much stronger competition.
