I will share my interview experience for R2. Very similar to what other users have said previously. It was a blind interview, meaning the interviewer had only briefly looked at my resume and had not read my essays.

The interviewer asked me to go over my resume and experience, explain what jobs I have held, take her through a day at one of them, impact I have had at them, etc.

Next is was the standard b-school interview questions - Why Carlson? Why an MBA? What are your short and long-term career goals? How will an MBA from Carlson help you achieve those?

We also spoke about what enterprise I was interested in at Carlson. I was also asked about if my career plan didn't work out, what kind of backup plan did I have and how would Carlson fit into that.

The final thing is they ask you to do a 2 minute speech on any topic that you choose. They just want to see how you communicate on the fly, so keep in mind a topic you might like to use.

Question for other users, does Carlson send out decisions before the decision date ever? Or do they send them all no matter what on the same day admit/deny/waitlist? For example, the R2 decision date is Feb. 1 - should I expect to wait until then to receive a decision?
