Any others with results yet?

Hi Karanjain, congratulations! Did you have the interview on campus eventually? I interviewed on Jan-4th and the adcom mentioned that he needs two weeks for a decision so I haven't heard anything yet.


HI
I interviewed online. Yes, my interviewer had mentioned the same timeline to me as well, but i received the notification earlier.

Yes, I did. I applied for the Dec 1 priority deadline and received an interview invite before the holidays. Maybe ask for an update from the admissions department.

Hey guys,

I found out that there isn't much information about the video essay here. So I decided to share the questions I remember for the future applicants.
There were 6 questions, 30 seconds to prepare and 1.5 minutes to answer each.
Though I don't remember every question word for word, I hope this can give you a sense of their video essay.

1. You are at the last stage of the interview with the company you want. Explain why you should get the job.
2. Which leader do you admire?
3. Opinion on a constructive criticism?
4. Work vs. Personal event.. what will you do?

I hope it helps!
