Based from last year's thread, looks like they started sending invites again 3 weeks after the deadline.

I'll have my interview next week and will update the interview debrief section once done.

Hi all, I had my interview yesterday and it was a blind interview (interviewer only saw my resume and not the rest of my apps). It had 2 parts: goals/why MBA and behavioral questions.

Part 1 -
1. Can you tell me more about your current role?
2. Why do you want an MBA now?
3. Post-MBA goal
4. Plan B if Plan A doesn't work out
Part 2 -
1. Talk about a time where you had to compromise for the team's success
2. Talk about a time where your team was utilized by another team (or another team asked for your help)
3. Was there a time where you had to use your non-work skills at work for a project to be successful?
4. Talk about a time where you had less success as a team leader
5. As Tepper is a diverse, tight-knit community, was there a time where you actively reached out to know more about other people's culture?
6. Based on your research, why do you think Tepper is the school for you?

Then around 5 mins for Qs to the interviewer

I just realized they asked me a lot of Qs, maybe because I was speaking too fast :lol:

I'll post something up on Clear Admit soon, but here are the questions paraphrased (might be missing one or two):

TMA = Tell me about

1. Why MBA?
2. Post-MBA plans/career goals.
3. Plan B if Post-MBA plans don’t work out.
4. Why Tepper?
5. TMA a time when you had to compromise for the team to succeed.
6. TMA a time when you did something that others in the team did not want to do.
7. TMA a time when you learned from people more senior than you?
8. TMA your experience working with a diverse team with different backgrounds from you.

It was a video chat interview. I could see her, but, unfortunately, my webcam didn't work with CMU's online software, despite it working on Facetime/Photo Booth. So basically, to my interviewer, I was a black talking screen. Interview seemed ok overall, but it's hard to gauge.

All those who have completed their interviews, did you get to know if it went well? Mine was exactly the same as the experiences mentioned above, but I don't know if it went well. The interviewer didn't give any expressions till I spoke about why Tepper and my interests outside work. Anyone faced a similar situation?

For those of you who had already signed up for an interview at the diversity weekend (nov 2-4) before the Mba application deadline, have you also received an official invite to interview from your application?

Are the interview calls for round 1 over? after the initial few, it seems so quiet from their end. And it looks like no one got interview calls in the past week. Getting worried now.... :sad:

I guess not because there are still slots available for interview. At the time of writing of this post, 5 slots of Online interviews are available along with several on-campus ones.

This is the availability at the moment, maybe more will be added or conducted through Skype. I don't know exactly about the last date of the interviews but the last slot is of 27th Nov.

Based from last year's thread and LiveWire, there were a number of people that got invites between 1st and 2nd week of Nov. Latest interview invite was Dec 5, then he had his online interview on the 8th. Looks like the interviews will be held up until a week before decision day. Don't lose hope!

Hi,

What can we expect as the last day until which Tepper roll's out interview invites for R1? Still expecting to hear from them, but not sure if it's realistic now.
