Still no takers? :-)

It's time to show yourself: Share your post MBA aspirations and motivations for applying to Carlson. I am sure a fruitful exchange of ideas and positive dialogue with co-applicants will help everyone immensely in your own essays.

The video essay questions are standard interview type questions.
What do you do in your free time?
Tell me about a time when....
What does *fill in the blank* mean to you? (diversity, success, failure, etc.)

If you think through your past job interview questions, or browse the other posts for past years' full time in person interview questions, that's a good cross section of the type of questions.

They admissions team says it is more about trying to get a personal feel for you without doing an in person interview.

They only ask 1 question for the video essay. 120 seconds prep time and 120 seconds recording time. I was asked about a time at work when I started something from scratch with zero information. How did I approach the situation and what was the outcome?

Finally.. some discussion happening. :-) Thanks @RitikaPahuja, BLan, Manz09, KG2012 and good luck for your apps. Anyone wants to take charge of this thread? I won't be visiting it as frequently as any current applicant would do.
