I just got done with my interview (35 mins overall) . Mr. John Gibson took my interview. He's the Associate Director of Admissions - Krannert Graduate School of Management

We exchanged pleasantries for 5 mins. He explained that this would be the last step in the admission process

Questions -
Tell me about yourself
Why mba? Why now?
Why Krannert?
Any other schools you've applied to?
Short term goals - mentioned some companies in the essays and asked where do you see yourself in 2 years
What inspires you to wake up and do what you do
What did you learn about yourself while leading a team
how would your team describe you
what are you most proud of

Questions for me - asked - he replied and we discussed on the same for about 5 mins.

He was very friendly, the interview was really conversational - may be the best I've had in a while. He mentioned that in two weeks I would be notified about my decision and asked me to shoot a mail if I needed to know something else. I mentioned how GmatClub helped me understand about Purdue better.

PS - positive about this :)

HK


This is great feedback, HK. I’m sure this debrief will help many many aspiring MBAs on this platform. It sounds like everything went well, so rest assured you have nothing to worry about. Good luck to all of you in this process. I hope to see everyone in West Lafayette this fall.

Hey thanks. I mentioned your name in the interview. Thanks for being a POC. I earlier contacted you regarding the cost of the program (Full time MBA) for an International student. Any leads on this?

Also in the cost calculator - what are the different meal plans? How is the on campus accomodation?

At the end of my interview, I was told that the decision might take two weeks to come

Mr. John was saying that from Mid Jan to Mid feb the admits are being reviewed now for schol and will be sent in the next 2-3 days. In case you get the admit then we would evaluate you next month this time and you will get the related details. So be hopeful. This week it is :)

Hello,

Purdue has dropped to #74 in new US News MBA rankings. :(


It also shows placement to be at 59.4%. What do you all think?

The % is during graduation. Purdue def has to be a backup for an MBA and less likely a target. Rankings have to be taken with a pinch of salt.
I believe within 3 months of graduation the % will definitely increase

More than the rankings the best source of info comes from current students/ alum

Hi Hatakekakashi

I do not want to be pessimistic. But along the years, Krannert was not transparent for internationals. If you pay close look, you will find that they use percentage of domestic is 94%. The career report is not that transparent. For example, WP Carey career reported same number (59%) after graduation but the number was as high as 90% after months. So, It was clear. This is what I hope to see in Krannert.

Alright. That is one way to look at things for sure. I am just worried about the post MBA opportunities for students
