hi srikrishnaseshadri
same status for me. Applied on Oct 1, but not yet invited for interview.

Gautam,
i think we have similar scores too.
Maybe they have not reached to our applications.

Hope you're all doing well!

Just finished my interview yesterday. For starters, I expected a Skype invite half an hour before the interview (similar to another interview). It was a little surprising to directly get a call at the scheduled time. So just be ready in advance to accept the call :)

As the others have stated, it was a very conversational interview with just 1 interviewer. The interview started with him talking about Penn state and the opportunities it holds as well as the general lifestyle. The broad smile and acknowledgement to whatever I said was very encouraging. It was a comparatively fast paced interview where we ran through a lot of questions in a span of half hour. I've put down whatever I can recollect right now.

- Career progression, professional experience
- Why MBA? Why now?
- Biggest failure so far in college / work life, what I learned from it
- Ethical Dilemma
- Creative criticism
- What I expect to learn through the 2 years of study
- Post MBA goals
- Instances of managerial experience / leadership
- What kind of a leader I am / aspire to be?
- One common misconception that people have about me, how I prove them wrong
- The other programs that I'm applying for and how Smeal compares to them
- The things that I do for fun / hobbies
- In the process of getting down 6000 applications to 60 admits, why should Smeal choose me?
- Questions from my end

I was told that the results would reach me pretty soon and may take a maximum of two weeks in any case.

Hope this helps all those who have their interviews coming up! Good luck :) and *fingers crossed* for my results too!

When did you give your interview and when did you get your result?

If you don't mind sharing, how was your interview?
