Mentioning an essay topic in an interview [#permalink] New post 03 Nov 2008, 14:20
Hi all,

Just looking for some opinions regarding interview protocol. If asked about a specific leadership experience (I suppose this would work with any question) is it OK to mention one that was already included in an Essay? Or should interviews and essays be totally separate?

Find out if the school has blind or informed interviews. If the former, then you can be more comfortable in re-using topics. I still think it's better to be cautious and try to find a plethora of alternative stories to use to highlight your leadership and other abilities.

I think some schools are fine with it and some discourage (MIT I think)? In any case it should be called out in their interview materials.
