for the reasons you have shared, I would say you would definitely be at a disadvantage....try to use a medium which can help you connect the best with the interviewer....

take a leave and a friend's laptop!! :thumbup:

Hey guys....I'm looking for some feedback on my profile. I interviewed today with the Tepper School for R2. It was a pleasant interview.....very informal.

The questions were not out of the ordinary: ST/LT Goals? Why Tepper? How would co-workers describe your strengths? Describe your international experience? One that threw me off a bit was: Describe a time you sensed a change coming in your industry and how did you respond to it? What do you enjoy outside of work?

I felt I prepared fairly well, however I was expecting to get why MBA? and/or walk me through your resume. I felt I left a lot of good anecdotes on the table and in hindsight I could have worked all of that into the ST/LT goals response. I didn't feel I outright bombed it since I was able to address each question, but definitely could have done much better.

My question is how do you guys feel a lukewarm interview will impact my app? I feel I have competitive stats and WE, but I'm a bit concerned about not conveying my story in the interview.

I'm also applying to FlexMBA, please consider that in your response. Thanks!


Hi JJgodawgs,

Not to sound cliched, but adcoms do look at the entire application, not just the interview or GMAT or GPA, etc. And its usually tough to judge from an interview if one would get in, because these interviews are not technical at all and there's no 'right' answer to most questions. Its how we present ourselves. "Could have done much better" is a very common theme, dont worry about that. I guess most applicants come out of the interview feeling the same, including myself :) I guess we just have to wait till the deadline day.

I have no info on the FlexMBA program, so cant provide any insight there. Probably someone else in the forum can help you out there.

All the best!

Decision day is 24th March, I guess I wouldn't start panicking for 2 more weeks.
And probably by 1st week March, I'd give up any remaining hope...

Yes, my man! Patience is a key virtue for R1 WL people like us.
Sadly, it's very difficult to bring into practice :(

Another invite from Kelly Wilson for an event. This is the third time I have got this mail, except this time they have added a new location, Delhi. Should make it easier for people in Delhi and surrounding areas to attend it, instead of coming all the way over to Mumbai/Bangalore.
