Hey Guys!

I had my interview today at Gurgaon (Delhi) with Jim. It was a fairly conversational interview. Jim is an extremely chilled out person.

The interview lasted for ~25 minutes. The questions were the same as mentioned on previous year’s threads.
1. Why MBA? Why now?
2. Why I have chosen my mentioned career goal?
3. Why Kelley?
4. Strengths and improvement areas.
5. How will you contribute to your Kelley team?
6. What will you learn from them?
7. What do you do in your personal time?
8. Anything else you want me to know?
9. Any apprehensions about doing an MBA?
10. Any questions for me?

All the best folks!

Just had my interview with Jim a couple of hours ago. Great list on this page. Almost all of the questions he asked are listed on this page. Just 2 new ones -
1) Tell me something about your experience in leading teams (I think he asked me because I've a lot of team leading pointers on my CV. He even started with "Since, you have managed a lot of teams...")
2) What motivates you?

As others have mentioned, Jim is really easy to talk to and keeps the conversation flowing. He gives you quite a few chances to mould the interview your way.
One last thing. Although pretty accommodating, Jim is punctual (and rightly so :) ). I kept on talking a bit during the end, and he had to interrupt and remind me of the time. So keep an eye out during the last 10 mins and close nicely (unlike me :P ).

All the very best everyone!

I don't think there will be more in-person invites for India Location, as Jim is already in India and he has already taken interviews in Delhi.

Now, if any more invites come in, they will be on Skype.
