Have a 740 and yet to get an invite. I don't think GMAT is the only or the major criteria. Just hope that they haven't got to your application yet.


Already interviewed with a 690 GMAT.

I know GMAT is taken into account considering background and where you are applying from, plus it is not necessarily the major criteria.

Cheers!


Congrats on your interview!!!
Any writing test during the interview? Could you pls share some questions asked?

Writing? Not at all, nothing but chit chat about fairly common questions, walk through resume, why mba, why McD, etc... Got no curveballs whatsoever.

I interviewed via Skype on the 15th of October.

I had many of the same questions you would face in a behavioral interview. The one that caught me up (and that you should plan for) was probably "talk to me about a recent article you read (about your career interest/passion)". I would definitely have something prepared for that since most other questions are usually pretty easily answered. I had luckily scoped through last year's thread and saw some instances where that question was asked and was prepared for it. I still had to adjust my answer because it was not asked in the same context which I was expecting.

Also, the interview focused quite a bit on the global experience that McDonough provides. I would think of any and all experience you have working with people of different cultures.

Hope this helped.

Is it blind interview? by AO or 2nd-year student?

I would not give up hope at all. According to the ClearAdmit MBA LiveWire, there are still interview invitations going out. I am pretty sure that they will continue to go out up until the deadline.

I received a mail from admissions today asking to further explain a gap in work experience, although I had done so in my essay.

Has anybody received a similar mail?

Cheers

I received the exact same mail today. I replied them over mail explaining the reason. Atleast one thing is sure, they are still reviewing the round 1 apps.

Received an invite to interview just now ... An hour after I explained to them the reason for my gap in employment.

Thanks DioAndy. Sounds quite cool may be a bit scary
How did it go for u?

It would be great if interviewed candidates shared similar curveballs/ oddities faced during thier interviews.
