Hi lego2020,

Congratulations on being invited to interview. You will not be at an additional advantage or disadvantage by attending the interview either on campus or Skype. However if you are more comfortable in doing your interview in person and/or if you would like to visit the campus, participate in a class and interact with current students, you should try to visit campus.

Let us know what you choose to do, and all the very best!

Hi. I am a R3 applicant(international) and received the II on Feb.8th.
I haven't selected the interview date yet because I was thinking of which option to take: skype or campus visit.
whether skype or campus visit will not affect the admissions result, right? I believe it won't but quite concerned.
Anyway I hope everything goes well with your interview.
**Sorry, I also don't have any idea with Carlson's interview experience at this moment.

Hi Guys,
I have a doubt.
I submitted my application on Jan 31st, 2018.
How many days must we wait before we get an interview invite?
If we were in contact with any of the Adcoms previously do they still take an interview?

Thanks

AdmitJA Hi. Thank you for clarifying the point I really wanted to know.
To give you some notes, I decided to take the skype interview and would plan class visits at a later date after concluding some of my personal affairs. lol.

Awesome! In that case I will recommend you to try to come to Carlson on Up Close, the weekend event for admitted students on April 5th and 6th. Here is the link: https://carlsonschool.umn.edu/degrees/m ... a-up-close

Hi leshwarnag,

It is hard to pin point a date. I guess you should hear from the school by next week. Fingers crossed for you. All the best!

Hi, AdmitJA,

I will have my interview on this Friday, and I haven't gotten by this point any notice about the interviewer.
I would like to know if it's a typical situation not to know in advance the name of the interviewer.
If it seems unusual, I would contact the Admissions team to figure it out.

Any comments will be deeply appreciated. Thank you.

Hi lego2020,

There is nothing unusual. Carlson conducts "blind" interviews. This means, both the interviewer and interviewee know nothing about each other before the interview. Just a few minutes before the interview, the interviewer is giving the interviewee's resume to start the interview. So absolutely nothing to worry! However if you think you would feel more comfortable to know who your interviewer is, you could write to the school and check with them. I am not sure how they would respond though. Keep us updated!

All the best for your interview, lego2020!

AdmitJA, rabeetahsan,

Thank you for sharing your ideas and for the kind words.
I will exert myself to present my authentic-self through the interview.
Fingers crossed! Best of luck to all!

Dinged. GMAT 660. Biopharma. Thought I had a decent interview. Wonder what aspects went against me. GMAT score, R3 application, obscure/non-traditional industry? Anyway, onwards and upwards. Good luck to others awaiting results and congrats and best wishes to folks who will be matriculating at Carlson this fall.
