"Had a lovely conversational interview with a 2nd year student, a majority of the questions were pretty general: 1. Why MBA? 2. Why Anderson / what clubs interest you? 3. Short term & long term goals? 4. Experiences or projects that you had the opportunity to showcase any technical or analytical skills? 5. Biggest challenge at work? There were also some follow ups that were asked based on some of my responses and time at the end for questions. If you log in a bit early, maybe 15 mins, you might be able to see the name of your interviewer to do a quick LinkedIn search just to understand their background. I was able to do so prior to our interview while I was in the Zoom waiting room. Good luck!"

"The interview was over Zoom with a second-year student. He was friendly and the interview was conversational, he kept on adding points or agreeing with what I said. Below are the questions : 1) Talk about yourself. 2) In the first question I said I worked on ML in analytics, he asked how did that happen? Is it self-taught or trained ? 3) Why MBA and Why Anderson? 4) Short-term and long-term goals? Any location preference post MBA? 5) Leadership experience, how do I keep the team motivated, and how it functions? 6) I told all Senior level people in the team are based out of the USA, so the question was has it been difficult to work in that setup, or is it not? How has my experience been? 7) How will I get involved in the Anderson community? In what all clubs/ activities I am planning on participating? 8) Any questions for me? Overall good experience, probably the best among all the interviews I have had. All the best :)"

"I joined the zoom link 10 mins before the scheduled start time, and after 2-3 mins of waiting, got the message (on my zoom screen) that I will be admitted to the waiting room of "my interviewer name". I used the remaining 6-7 mins to look up my interviewer on LinkedIn and find out about their background (to help me think of more relevant questions to ask towards the end). The interview began at the very second the clock struck the scheduled time. My interviewer started with a basic introduction about their background. And then we straight away dove into the questions: 1. Tell me about yourself and a bit about your resume. 2. Why do you want to do an MBA now? 3. Why Anderson? 4. What are your ST and LT goals? 5. What would be your plan B? 6. Describe a time/situation when you had to handle diversity in your team? 7. Describe a time/situation when you created impact within/outside your team? 8. Which clubs would you join at Anderson? 9. How would you contribute to Anderson and how do you plan to derive value out of the resources available at Anderson? 10. Any questions for the interviewer? I was nervous in the beginning (fearing my interviewer would lose interest in my stories, etc.), but then I employed some basic hand gestures/movements to reiterate the points where I wanted to create a focussed impact, and thankfully saw my interviewer maintain an interested and curious look throughout the duration of my answer. On the whole, it was a very relaxed and friendly experience."

"Just interviewed with a second-year student over Zoom. The interviewer was really friendly and engaging. It felt conversational and he frequently provided his feedback after I answered each question, which definitely eased my nerves. The questions he asked are: -Tell me about yourself -Why MBA -Why now -What are you short term & long term goals -What is your plan B? (I said I want to do management consulting at a MBB firm and he emphasized how it is really competitive and what I would do if I don't get a spot at an MBB firm) -Tell me about a time you had a conflict in a team and how you resolved it -Tell me about a time you used your strength to create a positive impact in a team -What will you contribute to Anderson -What EC clubs do you plan to join at Anderson The last ~ 5-10 minutes were open for me to ask questions"

"It was pretty basic. The interviewer asked me to walk him through my resume and then had a few follow-up questions. He asked me a question about how I handle conflicts and a question about my biggest achievement so far. Rest were just follow ups to that. Last question was regarding how I would add value to the Anderson Community."

"Had an interview with a current 2nd-year student. She is really nice and lovely. It was a very conversational two-way chat and the interviewer was very engaged. We only had about 30 minutes for the discussion (she tried to aim for 30 minutes as much as she could). Questions: 1. Tell me about yourself 2. Why MBA? Why now? 3. ST & LT Goals 4. How will you contribute to Anderson? 5. Tell me about a time you have managed differences at work. Follow-up question: How did you feel about this experience? 6. Tell me about your strength and how that helped your team in achieving their goals + Questions at the end for the interviewer. Overall thought: she was very nice, and she shared a lot of her experiences at Anderson while being able to follow up with questions about my experience. It made me feel like I was a student at Anderson talking to a classmate!"

""My interviewer was a second-year student, and right at the start, he told me that this was going to be a friendly conversation more than an interview and that he will ask a basic set of questions. He said he would take 15-20 minutes to ask his set of questions and then let me ask any questions I may have (unfortunately, we started a few minutes late because of some technical snag). Questions: 1. Walk me through your resume 2. Why MBA and why now? 3. What if your intended post-MBA plan doesn't work out? 4. Why Anderson? 5. How will you contribute to the Anderson community? And that's about it! After this, we spoke for about 10 minutes, and I asked him about his motivation to pursue an MBA, his experience at Anderson, and his life in LA. It was quite a free-flowing conversation, and it helped that he had a similar professional background and goals as me. We spoke for about 30 minutes in total. The interviewer was warm and friendly, and he was diligently taking notes as I responded to his questions. I was surprised by how brief the interview was, and the fact that there were no behavioral questions, but overall, it was a pleasant experience! I hope this helps, and best of luck to everyone!""

"I just had an interview over Skype for a Full-time MBA at UCLA Anderson. Interviewer was a second year student at Anderson and he was very friendly. His cool attitude really calmed my nerves which I had prior to the interview. The interview itself was exactly 30 minutes (~22 min questions for me and then ~8 min for asking questions from him). Whole interview was very conversational and my interviewer was trying to make it conversational as well but I believe I answered too long on some questions. Questions: 1. Walk me through your resume. 2. Why MBA and why now? I had to bring in my career goals first and then I answered on why MBA part 3. Why Anderson? 4. Plan B in case if I end up my not getting my short-term goal? 5. How will you participate and contribute to the Anderson Community? 6. What would your manager say on about some good and bad things about you? 7. Do you have any questions for me? As I said he was very friendly and smiled mostly, trying to help me get in ease all the time. He made a few comments here and there, and took notes when I was answering questions. He had some great stories about his time at Anderson. All in all a very warm interaction indeed. Good Luck to everyone preparing for the interview. Hope my experience helps!"

"Hello, I'd like to share my experience during the UCLA Anderson interview I have just had. The interviewer was a second-year student, who talked about his background in the beggining and, after, asked the following questions: 1) Walk me through your resume. 2) Short and long term goals. 3) What is your Plan-B if I you are not able to get into the industry of your choice? 4) How do you see yourself participating in the Anderson Community? 5) You have still 10 minutes. Do you have any questions? General impressions: - The interview was quicker than I thought it would be. I had 10 minutes for my questions, so, I asked three questions; - There were less questions than I was prepared. That's why, again, I asked three questions in the end. - He didn't asked for my ID. Best,"
