It was a blind interview so they only read your resume.

What is your short term goal and Plan B? pretty much the same as the application.
Tell me about a time you had to work with a difficult person.
Tell me about a time you worked with someone from a different nationality or culture.
Tell me about an opportunity you took advantage of to better yourself personally or professionally. (or something to that effect)
What is a hobby of yours?

There may have been a couple of others but these are the ones I remember.

Good Luck!

Thanks for sharing this! Was there cross-questioning on any of your answers, for details or otherwise?

My application status still shows 'awaiting'. Should I be concerned? Is there someone who is in the same boat? I applied on 5th January 2018. And is it advisable to reach out to the admissions since it specifically mentioned 3-4 weeks?

I sent a mail last week. Got this reply. I'd say let us just wait..keep our fingers crossed!


Hello, Sushrut,

Thank you for your application and your interest in Tepper.

Please do not be concerned as your application is in the queue to be processed. You will be receiving an email from our operations team regarding your status in the not-too-distant future.

Ours is a manual process and we appreciate your patience as we process a large volume of application

Hi

My status says the following:
Your application is currently under review by Texas MBA Admissions. You will receive a decision on your application by the decision notification deadline for the Round in which you applied. Once a decision has been released on your application, you will receive an email telling you to check the McCombs Application Status Portal. Please note that we are unable to accommodate requests for early decisions.

All my application checklist has a green tick beside it.

Your application will be reviewed by the admissions committee and you will receive a decision for Round 2 according to our notification dates.

The committee may still reach out to you if they have questions about your application, so we encourage you to check your email often.

I interviewed on Jan 22nd on Campus. Questions (as I remember them) were as follows:

1) Tell me about your latest role
2) Short term, long term goals, and backup plan.
3) Why Tepper
4) Tell me about a time when you made a decision that affected other teams
5) Tell me about a time you had a disagreement in a team environment and how you resolved it.
6) Experience working with other cultures

So pretty similar to what others have reported. Goodluck.

I applied on the deadline and haven't heard back.
Last year, it was a bit quicker, but then I had a great rapport with a recruiter and that person is no longer with CMU.

I am still hoping and we have some time, so I am not worried about it so far.

But it is getting competitive. Last year they had one of the largest increase in application volume (percentage).

Anyway, all the best to all who applied and still working on the applications.

Hi,
Even I received the same email yesterday.

Does anyone know what the next steps would be or When we would be invited to interviews?

Well, next step would be to interview.... :-D

Fun aside, I'd say start preparing for one even before you receive invite - unless you are busy with R3 applications.
Once you receive email, it will have a link directing you to set up an interview date / slot / type (in person or web), etc. And once you book it, you are all set.
Prepare and rock it.

All the best.

There should be one ore wave of invites for tepper. It should be in the coming 2 weeks

If there isnt any invite even after that, then its a ding! :-(

Kind of agree, but not completely.
If you don't receive an II in next 2 weeks, I'd start getting anxious. But I wouldn't give up for at least another 2 weeks.
Decision date is March 14. So, giving in before a whole months is left to 'live' is too much to give up - in my opinion.

According to last years thread, there was a second wave of invite after which there was none!

Just finished my Tepper interview, it was in line with what everyone else said. Very relaxed and conversational, it was a good experience for sure.

FYI, the interview is blind; your interviewer will have only seen your resume.

The questions I remember are:
1) Walk me through your resume, from undergrad to now.
2) Why MBA/Post-grad goals.
3) Why Tepper
4) Example of a time something at work was difficult, how you solved it.
5) Working with people from different cultures.

There were questions that came up as conversation between my responses, but overall, a conversational kind of "get to know you" interview.

Best of luck to everyone yet to interview!
