Interview 1 : Recent ex alum working at Amazon. I started off with my presentation. After that she asked a few questions on the presentation and gave me a little feedback on the length and my slide content. After that there were questions on Why HEC (lots of counter questions here on why not other schools), post MBA career choice and how I will achieve it.
The interviewer grilled me on my experiences working internationally.
After that I asked a few questions. Mostly the interview was very conversational.

The second interview was pretty much the same. The only difference was the interviewer was really interested in how I would finance the MBA, where I wanted to work afterwards and what salary I was expecting.

Yes, I am going to accept. I did not apply to any other schools as HEC was my first choice, and because of their quick admissions process I still would have had plenty of time to apply to other schools. Those application fees sting!

However my second choices were INSEAD/IMD (both Jan intakes), and my backup choices were IESE and ESADE.

Hi, potential classmate! Let's see if any other admits join this thread and we can all create a WhatsApp group - I believe you and I are pretty ahead of the curve at the moment.

Are you going to accept?

Hi,
Thank you so much for sharing. They have a Luxury trek. Recently, trek people went to different premium wine and champagne makers. You will get to know how they kept their brands premium, maintaining cost and supplies. Also, students from HEC goes to SDA Bocconi for luxury competitions.
It is a great school. They are looking to improve their Women to Men ration in the class ;) ;)
