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?

I had the same question. I don't think we will hear back until the decision date on Feb. 1.

I had my interview on last Friday with Ms Melissa Arlt.
Very similar question to what has been asked so far. Nothing out of the blue.
The interviewer was pretty chilled out and easy going.
Not sure how she felt about me ..Ha ha ...

Hoping for the best!!

For all those who have their interviews in coming days or awaiting interviews here is the list of all interview questions that I compiled from the feedback of applicants who were already interviewed this year or previous year.

1. Walk me through your resume/ tell me about yourself?
2. Why MBA? Why now?
3. Short term-long term goals.
4. Why Carlson?
5. Strengths and weaknesses in a team setting? Or in general?
6. Challenges at work.
7. Leadership Style?
8. How do you approach an obstacle?
9. How do you present a complex topic to strangers?
10. What will you give the community?
11. Have you faced any ethical dilemma?
12. Where else are you going to apply and why?
13. Teamwork experience
14. 2-min extempore on a topic of my choice (1-2 min to prepare)
15. What challenges do you foresee you will face during your MBA?
16. Backup option?
17. Hobbies?
18. Any questions for me?
19. Why engineering as undergraduate?
20. Time when I had to convince a team member who was not co-operating
21. Time when I was bored with work
22. What would you do if you don't do MBA this year
23. Explain what jobs I have held,
24. Take her through a day at one of them,

Thank you for introducing me to this feature Mo2men. I have given my review and am spreading a word to the current students to do so too.

Dear AdmitJA

I have came across gmatclub business school review and found that no Carlson student has shared his experience. As an active participant,can you start sharing your experience in this section? it will be enlightening for most of us.

Thanks for your help
