Hi, Carlson requires a personal statement asking to answer three questions.
By that does it mean one essay containing answers to all three questions or separate essays? Any word limit?


one essay...750 word limit

The thread looks dead. Someone might want to share his/her interview experience. I am sure it'll be of help to a lot.

Thank You.

I had my interview a couple of days back, with a current student! Which was surprising as I wasn't aware that current students take interviews at Carlson.

It turned out to be a great interview though, and I got a better idea on my interviewer's perspective on Carlson as well.

The questions asked were pretty usual at first:
Why MBA
Why now
Why Carlson
Short term-long term goals.

But then we delved into a few specifics of these goals. I think it is important to know the school well and what it has to offer and how you fit in.

And yes, last was the 2 min extempore bit, where I was told to sell an idea / product etc to my interviewer.

Now awaiting the results!

Anybody else done with their interview?

Hi everyone,

I had my interview with Dana Daniele a couple of days back. She is very cool and kept the interview as friendly as possible (We both smiled multiple times as we moved ahead with the interview ;-)). It was for around 45 minutes.

Started with "Walk me through your resume", followed by a few traditional questions:
Why MBA?
Why Carlson?
Why now?
Strengths and weaknesses
Then it went on some specific aspects of my profile. First and foremost thing is that you should know what all you have mentioned about self in your SOP, resume/CV, optional essay. By knowing I mean, they want to see if you actually are the person whom you have projected as in your profile and essays. So, be prepared with good number of situations where in you have proved yourself,
As a leader
As a team member
As an eligible candidate for a B school etc,.
Don't miss out on any single quality or word you have mentioned in the essays and resume.
Expect one question, where they would give you a scenario and you will be asked to face it your way.
Be very clear and specific on your post MBA goals, both short term and long term.
Finally I was asked to talk for 2 minutes on any of my favorite topics.
Once it is done, be prepared with some set of questions for interviewer.
Altogether it was a great experience for me, this being my first admission interview.
Bit tensed about result though. Should wait till Jan 15th.

Be confident and you will do it.
All the best :-)

In my case, NO. Is it something like they reach out to our references as a final step for admission? Is there any current student in the forum who can talk on this?

I got my interview last friday with Tedi Mason.
She was very nice and helpful through the process and asked the typical questions, why carlson, why mba, why now, short term and long term goals, specific question about my career, why would I change careers, and talk 2 minutes about something (introducing her to something new).

This looks so cool. I think it must be pretty chilled out! How long did it go for? Also, did you ask any questions?

Hi All,

I am a First Year student at Carlson. I would strongly recommend you to look at last year's thread. We had done a decent job of consolidating last years interview questions and timelines (as well I think). Reach out with additional questions.

Good luck!
