Hey everyone, R2 applicant here.

Just heard from Dimitra yesterday, I have my interview on Monday feb 1st. Any suggestions/tips on how to address the questions?

Thanks


Hey danielotero,

Congrats for the interview invite. I interviewed with Dimitra as well on 14th Jan. She is a pretty relaxed person, and very friendly. It helped that I had met her during the QS World MBA Tour in Singapore before our interview.

I was asked the below questions in my interview with Dimitra:

- Walk me through your resume.
- Tell me one difficult decision that you had to make at work, and explain the obstacles and how did you negotiate the obstacles.
- Tell me your biggest professional achievement till date.
- Tell me one instance when you failed badly, and how did you bail yourself out of the situation. What did you learn?
- How and why did you decide to do an MBA? Why is now the perfect time?
- why ROTMAN? What do you intend to learn at ROTMAN and what are you most excited about ROTMAN? How will the skills learned at ROTMAN help you in your career?
- What do you do when you are not working? How have your hobbies shaped your personality?

Hi @jeetperichas85 thanks a lot for your advice. Had my interview yesterday with Dimitra, questions were pretty much the same as you posted, final decision should come in a couple of weeks.
Best of luck to all R2 applicants that have similar situations!!
