A marketing and recruiting manager from HEC Paris. The email just outlined the basic instructions for the presentation and the format of the interview.

Congratulations. Some people have discussed about it previously. It didn't tell me a date for an interview so I don't know when it'll happen.

Yeah. Just brainstorming about the topic to choose for my presentation. Extremely confused, I must say.

I haven't received any mail from HEC yet. Does this mean that I am done for now ? Do they send out rejection or waitlist mails ?

They send out emails for rejections as well as waitlists. However, don't lose hope. If the last cycle is anything to go by, you should wait till the 1st. Hang in there :)

Sure. 720 on GMAT, 4 years of work experience in USA in the oil and gas industry and I have a masters already from Penn State University (Smeal) , a lot of international exposure through symposiums and traveling and decent community experience.

I haven't gotten a lot of interviews from USA schools despite this experience. I'll be 30 next year so I think that is working against me in the US. European schools in that sense are more liberal. They view an additional masters more positively too.

If I can provide a suggestion - go with a successful project that you have recently accomplished.

I would suggest this be a work example (e.g. launched a new program/ great results on a global project you worked on etc).

If you go with a personal example, this should be one where you overcame difficulties or had profound success, such as completing a marathon or climbing mount everest etc.

Or if could be a particularly interesting community/volunteer work project.

Make sure you follow the STAR model in your presentation:
S - Situation
T - Task
A - Action
R - Result

Good luck!!

Completed both my interviews. The next 3 or 4 days are going to be excruciatingly slow.

Here's my experience -



Interview 1 was with a 2012 alum in a coffee shop. It was a very conversational interview. He was 40 minutes late so it a was little rushed towards the end but it went on for over 90 mins regardless.



He first asked me to walk him through my CV. He questioned on a few things from there - about a few certification I had, decision/thought process to leave previous job etc.



He then moved on to ask me why I wanted to do an MBA at this point of my career. This lead to a detailed conversation about which schools I was applying to and why.



He then asked me to present my presentation. Although the stipulated time was around 10 mins, it lasted much longer as he kept asking me questions in the middle of the interview which lead to us digressing a lot of times. Eventually the end was a little rushed as there was another candidate waiting for him.



The interview ended with me asking him certain questions about HEC that i had prepared in advance.



Interview 2 was held over Skype with a 2016 alum. The interview started at the exact time scheduled and was a very structured interview. At the start of the interview itself, she broke down the interview in 4 parts -



Part 1 - A brief introduction of me (4-5 mins + follow up questions)

Part 2 - Presentation (10 mins + follow up questions)

Part 3 - An impromptu situation (5 mins to prepare and 1 min to answer)

Part 4 - Any questions I had for her



Overall, the second interview was more formal than the first one, which was a little casual - as the interviewer intended it to be. Very difficult to say how the interviewers will eventually assess me but if I'm being honest, I think I have a good chance.




Now, just wait for the jury do their thing and hope for an admit.



All the best to everyone still interviewing. And anyone who might need any help with anything regarding the interview process, please feel free to get in touch.

I had the oddest interview experience with the second interview. I presented on a startup idea and the interviewer spent the entire interview discussing business models, risk management and fund sourcing strategies with me. No MBA questions asked at all, then told me I should gain some more experience in the entrepreneurship space. Makes me feel like it's a ding?

Wouldn't bet on it. Maybe he has a slightly different method of assessing candidates. Stay positive, all the best!
