I received an interview invite last week and will be interviewing tomorrow.

I wouldn't get too concerned about not having received the invitation yet, however. I was referred in by my manager, an MSB alum, through the "Refer a Hoya" program, which apparently provides priority interview consideration. I'm guessing that means a lot of interview invitations are still forthcoming.



I was referred through "Refer a Hoya." Evidently, I did not receive priority interview consideration.

Are the invites over for Round 1?? Though I haven't yet got an invite, I have huge expectations from McDonough and have put in a lot of effort into application.

Expecting an invite soon. If anyone from India got an Invite, please share your profile and date of invite..

hey, I do not think that they have started rolling out interview invites for Indians. I know a couple of other friends who are applying to MSB as well. None of us have received an invite.

So, anyone have any updates? Seems kind of quiet compared to last years thread for people receiving interview invites?

I had my interview last night. It started with walking through the resume, short-term goal, long-term goal, why McDonough. An achievement that you are most proud of. Weakness, Strengths.
Mostly it's about knowing your thoughts & reasons for taking up MBA now.
All the best.
Do let me know if you have any specific queries.

I sent an email to them. They did not really specify a date by which we can expect an interview call. Let's hope for the best.

Yes, if you are a Forte member or a Teach for america alum , or some other groups - it does. Dont know exact names of groups. I think for teach for america alums it is free. For others it is subsidized. Check their website for further details.

Hi,
Just finished my interview on campus. Was pretty conversational, student interviewer, lasted about 35 minutes ( including my questions).
1. What are your goals
2. A very brief resume walk thru
3. Volunteer experience
4. Challenging experience at work
5. Tell me about a time you worked on a global team
6. A piece of constructive criticism you have received
7. What are the factors you considered while choosing MBA programs?
8. What are the other schools you are applying to?
9. Describe a time you had to lobby or persuade to get your ideas heard
10. Any article that you have recently read and your take on that
11. Any interactions with current students

Thanks.
