Good morning all,

Any other US R2 applicants still waiting on interview invitations? I realize that it is a rolling process, but I worry that I might begetting left behind. Hopefully this is just me getting too inside my own head about the whole process. This last month of waiting is more difficult than any GMAT study or essay writing.



HI,

Even I have been eagerly waiting. No response yet. Only the Admission Counselor was assigned who told me to wait till the deadline!

I applied to the part time program and also did not receive an invite yet. I read on last years thread that an important date is Round 1 Deposit Due Date (which is February 15). The Adcom will know at that point how many people will have committed to the program from round 1 and will have an idea of how many seats are left and will send out more invites based on that information.

FROM McDonough Admissions Blog: After an initial review of your application, you may be invited...
Image
After an initial review of your application, you may be invited to interview with a member of the Georgetown McDonough community. This is the chance to give your application a voice and see if the program is the right fit for you. Remember, the interviewer will be assessing you from three different perspectives: what will you add to the classroom?; will you achieve your post-MBA professional goals?; are you someone students would want on their team? Assistant director of MBA Admissions, Michelle Roch shares more interview dos and don’ts.

Do act as if everyone with whom you interact could have a stake in your admissions. You never know who you’ll meet on the elevator or what role they might serve in the admissions process.Do let your passion and personality shine through. Nothing convinces me of your determination more than when your excitement comes through in the interview process.Do dress the part. I’m a firm believer in the motto, you perform your best, when you look your best. We as interviewers will be evaluating you from the perspective of recruiter, so, dress for this interview the same way you would dress for your dream job.Do come prepared to tell your story - why you want the MBA at this point of your journey, what impact you’ve made in your professional career, how you’ve overcome obstacles, and how you’ve developed your world view. Don’t use too much industry-specific jargon. I recommend to practice interviewing with someone outside of your industry to ensure you’re using commonly known terminology.Don’t say anything negative about your former employer or colleagues. This leads me to believe that you’ll talk negatively about your fellow classmates and future employer - not a quality we’d like to associate with the Georgetown McDonough brand.Don’t rush through your answers. Finding the perfect timing can be difficult, but a general rule of thumb is to spend the least amount of time providing background on a specific situation you are describing, and a majority on the actions that you took and overall outcome.Don’t forget to practice. Even if you interview candidates in your current position, or you’ve been interviewed many times before, make sure you are ready to convey your accomplishments and highlights in a condensed time frame of 20 minutes.

Do ask thoughtful questions at the end of the interview. Doing so demonstrates your interest and helps us determine if we will be a good fit for you.

Scheduled an interview for this 13th Saturday at Delhi.

Guys, anyone who has interviewed in Delhi ....can you please share your experiences/questions?

Also is it conducted by Adcom? Is it blind?

Request to also mention any off-beat questions as it would help other applicants prepare well.

Thanks in advance :)

I gave in Mumbai last weekend.
Its Blind. Its by adcom. I think the same adcom will travel to Delhi.
But no offbeat questions. All typical resume walk through, why mba, why georgetown, why now
Difficult to read the responses of the adcom and tell
Good luck

Took my interview last week in Mumbai. The adcom is sweet and smiled a lot, made it easy. Very typical questions: Why MBA, Why Georgetown, What did you do at your first job, second job, biggest challenge, review from the first job etc. We ended by talking about the traffic in Mumbai and laughing about how different it is from Washington.
Good luck!

Just gave my interview today at ITC Maurya in Delhi with Ashley Robinson (Admissions Director). The interview started off completely different than what others have posted here. Below questions were asked :

1) Why did you undertake post graduate diploma after undergrad? (Specific to my profile)
2) What have been 2 most exciting and challenging projects you have undertaken in your current role?
3) Bad team experience and what did you learn from it?
4) As a manager what feedback have you received from your juniors?
5) Why MBA now?
6) Post MBA goals
7) Why McDonough ?
8) Which other schools and list your preferences if you get through all

Then I asked 3 questions to which she was highly responsive. Ended our conversation by discussing her travel plans in India and gave her some tips for her upcoming trip to Agra :lol: . Overall went well I think, but be prepared to answer off-beat questions , and more importantly, questions which are worded little differently. All the best...

Just had my Skype interview with the admissions director. (Very friendly)

Questions:
1. Why MBA and Goals
2. Why McDonough
3. Challenge @ work
4. Leadership and team work
5. Conflict with senior
6. What do you bring to the school/ How would you contribute to the MBA class
7. Other schools and how would you decide if you were to get an admit from all the schools

I asked 3 questions in the end. I think it went well.

Great interview insights. Thanks for those.

Random question: I received (what I think is a form email) invitation to an information session on the 22nd. It seems to be for prospective applicants, not those of us waiting on decision status. Does anyone think it is worth attending? Could a bit of face time sway an adcom in my favor?

Interviewed with an Alumnus at coffee shop last week. I was a little uncomfortable in the conducting the interview in such a casual environment while adhering to the business attire guidelines.

Questions asked:

Walk me through your resume?
Why MBA?
Why Georgetown?
What international work experience do you have?
What news/topics do you follow outside of your industry?

The interviewer was friendly but seemed to be disinterested as my background was polar opposite of his own. Did not leave with a good feeling but we shall see. Good luck to everyone still going through interviews.

Yes, chances are of course there. However, lesser amount is available to be distributed for scholarships when compared to R1
