Hi i received an interview invite.
Have registered for the IT/MIS - Consulting Interview.
Have read the Interview Tips mentioned in an earlier post, however do we need to prepare for any specific questions related to IT Consulting ?
Is this also based on why Katz and how this might be a good fit for me.

Hi,

Congratulations on clearing the first step in the admission process.
To answer your question, MIS is for people with a mix of technology and management. Not sure what your background is, but you can expect to get questions on:
- your experience
- your job roles; why did you choose certain role, what progress have you shown in various roles you've been
- why MIS; are you interested in pursuing manager roles (Product/Project/Program etc) in tech companies
- situation based
- for sure - why Katz, why MBA, why now etc

There might not be a direct question on IT consulting, but there can be follow up Qs on your responses to why MIS.

Email me if you have more Qs - varun.ajmani@pitt.edu

Thanks,
Varun

Hi, I just finished my interview and it was really short! Seems like I shouldn't keep any hopes.

I was interviewed on 22nd Feb but interview lasted for only around 25 min and I haven't heard anything from the school.

Should I consider that I have been declined admission as its been more than 10 days now since my interview?
Has anyone received any updates after getting interviewed post Feb 1 submission deadline?

There is no weight in considering that you haven't been offered a spot. Wait until you get an e mail from the team. You can definitely have hope! It is yet not over, unless it's over. I made it to Katz last year around Mar 5 only.

I just got a mail from Katz admissions director asking why I am not interested in their one-year MBA program as they think it would be a viable option because of my professional background and current situation.

Does this mean that I have been waitlisted for the 2-year MBA program? Also, any inputs about one year MBA program would really help.
