Quick question to those who've already been interviewed: Does HBS let you know who's exactly going to interview you? (For off-campus interviews)
Dee herself in SF (nice trip)
Hil and Lauren in MP
Quinn in Paris
Good ol Charlie in NYC
Lamb et al in London (I think)
Dubai/Mumbai, dunno yet, but could be same gals as last coupla rounds: Lucas and Jennet
Sao Paulo --maybe Dee in Rodeo gear
hmmmm, having done 60 (not a figure of speech) mock interviews so far THIS ROUND and gotten feedback on lots of them, mostly nothing really new except this, "do you think you will get bored reading 500 cases?"
and of course wild-man Charlie in NYC, of tell me what you want to start doing, keep doing and stop doing fame with corkers like this:
Tell me about constructive criticism at Job 1 that you agreed with?
Tell me about constructive criticism at Job 1 you disagreed with?
What would your high school best friend say are your 3 strengths? 2 weaknesses?
College roommate - 3 strengths, 2 weaknesses?
I wouldnt spend hours answering that, Charlie is back on the Highline, NYC interviews are over, and no one else seems to have taken the bait.
Intermittent HRH question, "what is a stereotype about your [country, business, etc] that is true and what is a stereotype that is not true?"
Superlative mega account of interview w. Her Majesty right here, this is what it is like:
Just got out of my interview with Dee Leopold. Double down! It was exactly as advertised: very intense, rapid-fire, with many follow-up questions and then abrupt changes in direction. Many times she asked for multiple examples of something and then seemed satisfied after the first and moved on. The questions were very specific to my application. You nailed a bunch of them.
