There is no guarantee for a personal interview as far as I know. They sent an interview request to a bunch of people asking them to record video answers to three questions, do you happen to mean this one?

I tried to do them on Saturday but had trouble with the website and their application accessing my PC ressources so sent a request to Wowzer. No feedback yet.

Anyway from the overview it says that you look at a video giving you the question, then you get 10 seconds to think and 3 minutes to answer by video.

Hi everyone,

About the R3 video interview, can anyone share me with the time limit?

For "each" question, the answering time is 1 minutes, 3 minutes, or others?

Thank you very much!

I completed my video interview today. There are a few things that I will point out to those who haven't done it yet. In order to ensure fairness I will not address my question but I will discuss the process.

When you click the link it takes you to the Yale interview page.
From there it will guide you through setting up the interview software.
Basically you need to make sure your webcam works and that you have Flash installed.
You are greeted by Bruce DelMonico and he welcomes you to the process.
From there you are given the opportunity to do 2 practice questions. (I recommend doing them to get you in the right frame of mind)
They are done exactly the same as the actual questions.
You have two buttons the first time the question is asked:
    Repeat Question
    Think
Then a 10 second timer starts.
If you ask to repeat the question, you buy yourself a few more seconds.
You do not get the choice to repeat the question again and it will immediately begin the "Think" 10 seconds
Then the video starts recording. I had 1 min and 30 seconds to answer each of my three questions.
After you complete all three, you are asked to do a survey.

I imagine it is all pretty similar but there was a version number at the top. So, I'm guessing that means that there are several different versions with various different parameters that you could possibly get.

Good Luck Everyone!

Anyone heard anything about this? http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142 ... eerjournal


Yale School of Management, meanwhile, plans to try out the Mayer-Salovey-Caruso Emotional Intelligence Test on volunteers from its current batch of applicants in coming weeks. Results of the online self-assessment won't affect admission decisions, says Bruce DelMonico, assistant dean and director of M.B.A. admissions, because the school is just gathering data on what traits predict success.

The 141-item test, co-created by Yale University Provost Peter Salovey, measures how well applicants might manage or understand their own emotions with questions about everyday scenarios. A candidate might be asked, for example, to predict how someone will react in a certain situation, or to identify someone's emotions based on a picture.

"Talent assessment is a difficult science," says Mr. DelMonico, though he says it is getting easier to quantify, or at least figure out, what needs to be assessed.



Sooo I think we can safely assume that round 3 applicants=Yale admissions guinea pigs?

Re: Yale R3 MBA video interview [#permalink] New post 08 May 2013, 05:23
Hi, I have taken the Round 3 video interview. It contained 3 questions.
1. What contribution did you provide for your company?
2. If you have a struggle with class mates, how will you solve?
3. What is your biggest concern of the Admissions Committee in evaluating your application?
Good luck!

Can you at least make a hint if the questions were from the standard adcom question pool (like why yale, why now, goals, etc.)?

Since this wasn't on the Application in any form, and it is not listed on the Application Status page, or under the Application Checklist.. is this Video Interview crap even necessary? And how many applicants received this interview request TO THEIR SPAM BOX, and were never made aware it was dispatched, because it isn't listed on the Application Status page when you login to check on your app? I BET A LOT.

So, I'm calling bullshit, and not doing it. This last minute hoop is ludicrous.

You really want to take that risk? I realize it's an annoying add-on, but if you don't get in, won't you regret not doing it? It's less than five minutes. Any prep you need to do is likely of the same variety you'd need to do for an interview, anyway.

And if you get that awesome call on the 16th, I guarantee you’ll forget all about the silly video…

When you receive a request for a "regular" interview from SOM, does it update on your application or is it just an email as well?
