Hey that's great kheown, really happy for you. Do you think I should write to the committee and check with them the status of my application considering I submitted it almost a month ago? Would appreciate if some current students can comment too.

Thanks!!

Here's my 2 cents:

    They said that after a preliminary review of my application they wanted to learn more about me. However, further review of the application will be held.

    There were lots of slots available to schedule an interview (but you could only schedule it for this week or the next), which makes me think that not many invites have been sent yet.

    The round 1 deadline is on November 1st...

For all these reasons, even though you submitted your application almost 1 month ago, I would still wait a little longer (at least until the deadline). Just make sure all your materials have been received and your application is under review (check on the Web portal).

Maybe some current students have a different opinion or a better insight on the process and can join in :)

Hope it helps!
kheown

Thanks for replying Kheown, I guess I will wait but yes my application status has been under review for a long time now and that is kinda worrying for me.

Hello ThisSideofParadise and erahn1

Do you know if interviews are blind (do interviewers only have your resume)? Or do they have all your application materials?

Thank you!

BOOKMARKED
Hello!

I just completed my interview with a second year student. It was a very conversational interview, although longer than usual (almost 50 mins).

Here are some questions...

What role do you have in team/how do you perform in teams
Leadership story
Professional drawback
Story about conflict in a team or a disagreement
Tell me about a time when your team faced an obstacle or something went wrong and what you did to solve the situation
The most important feedback youve received professionally
....

... on top of the usual ones, of course

Walk me through your resume
Why MBA
ST & LT goals
Why BC
What questions o you have for me

And then a couple that I found interesting

What clubs would you join at BC (I also found this one in last years thread)
Why do you go to work every day? What excites you about your job and industry?

Hope it helps!! Good luck with your interviews!
Best regards,
kheown

I just received my invite to interview this Friday afternoon. The school scheduled an on-campus lunch with a first year student prior to the interview, so I'm excited to get to meet 2 current students this week.

Good luck everyone!
