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!

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



If you are correct, one week has passed from that 2 weeks period.
I haven't heard anything yet - how about you?

Had my interview on campus on 2/6. It was a good experience, very conversational as everyone has mentioned.

Some questions:

1) Why MBA/Post-grad goals.
2) Plan B
3) Why Tepper
4) Example of a time when you didn't have enough information for a project.
5) What you learned from working with people from a different background.
6) Example of impacting someone else positively
7) A time when you had to take leadership
8) Any personal/professional accomplishment you want to share.

All the best to everyone who's interviewing!

It's awefully quiet on the interview invite front.
Except for a few here and there - that trickling of interview invite seems crazy.
Hope there is a big wave in the next few days - as a few members posted above, in the next week.

An interesting development.
Tepper sent me a two-sentence email asking a bit more detail from my undergrad school.
Tepper wants to know my GPA on an official document, whereas my alma-mater issues only letter grades (ie. A+ through C-).
More interesting is that, I am a re-applicant and was accepted last year without any such inquiry and had Re-Vera check completed too.
Either they are drilling a bit in detail into my application this year or they are looking for an excuse to oust me (wouldn't want to think that second possibility - but it is one of the possible ones)!!

Anyone else got such email?

BTW, it is for Jan application round.

Wow thats an interesting development. I would take it positively. Maybe the admissions are looking to invite you and want to verify other aspects of the application. Still waiting on invites, getting a bit late in the cycle so have diminished hopes.

I hope it is a positive one and you are right.
Yeah, it is getting late. I was planning to give them a call this week, but then this email on Friday, so I guess they are still looking at my file.
It is true that if we don't get a call for an interview by one more week, chances are next to nothing.
But, I am an eternal optimist, so I will still be hoping till the end.

Hello,

The website mentions the decision deadline as March 14th. I know it's stupid to wait till then, but any idea what the latest invite date is, historically? Maybe R1 applicants can help out here: Anyone who received an invite very close to the deadline?

Of course, waiting till 7 days into March is not the best thing. But We still have about 15 days in February. So keep hopes up, talk to them..

For my case, an update - as below....

I had Tepper asking for an official document showing GPA. My Alma Mater don't issue such, they use letter grades.
I called Tepper and talked to them, it was a wonderful and friendly experience. GPA thing was sorted out, they made a note on my application and it was all good.

Then, things took a bit funny turn. They could see that they tried to send an email, inviting for an interview, MORE THAN A MONTH AGO!!! They could also see that it probably didn't go through / I didn't open it.
But, I never had it!!.
Well, it was all good that they sent it again and I booked a slot, right away.

Anyone, who suspects this may have happened, please contact Tepper. Now, I am not suggesting that you all call them at once and clog the telephone line. But at the least email them and see if anything is amiss.
