How much time have they given you for securing your seat? I'm awaiting some results but guess they'd take sometime.

I had my HHL interview today. In the end my interviewer told that he will send the positive recommendation to AdCom.
He also told that the final scholarship decision will be made by AdCom.
However, he opined that my profile (score, experience, etc) will get around 5%-10%.

Hey Gaurav, great news buddy. Who was your interviewer and what all questions were asked?

I was interviewed by Prof. Vivek Velamuri.
The questions were all generic:
Why MBA
Why HHL
Why Germany
Career goals
With a 720 GMAT you can get many top-ranked schools, then why HHL?
I see from your PDF score report that you applied to these 5 colleges, HHL doesn't compare to them, why are you applying to HHL now?
How will you fund your MBA?

Quick questions for the selected candidates:
How many days after the interview did you get an official admit letter?
By when were you asked to send an acceptance?
By when do you need to make an initial deposit?

All questions would be based around your CV and LOM. I had a chilled out interview. Good Luck!

Hi,

I had the interview yesterday. It lasted around 30 mins. But I was surprised the way Prof.Vivek conducted the interview. He asked me tell me something about you that is not in your essay and CV. Most of the discussion we had about me were not related to education or experience. I guess the interview went well.

He said he will recommend me with scholarship. I am also invited to HHL meet in Hyderabad on 5 or 6th March. Is anyone else coming?

Wow! Quite impressive profile. Thanks for sharing. So are you planning to switch the current industry/job function after MBA or stay in the same?
