Meant to post this earlier in the week, but I had my interview on Monday. Wandered around a bit the day before and took some photos and thought I'd share.

First, the interview was pretty standard.
1. Walk through resume (spent the most time on one specific part that they found interesting)
2. Why MBA?
3. Why Tepper?
4. When have you worked well in a team?
5. When have you worked on a team and things didn't go well? What could you have done better?
6. Do you have any questions?

I'm probably forgetting one or two parts, but it was nothing too out of the ordinary. It was a conversation where my interviewer would also talk about some selling points of the school. Also an unusual amount of discussion about the business acting class.

Now, pictures!

Outside of Posner Hall, which hosts everything Tepper

You can see a bit of Pittsburgh from campus.

The painted fence - apparently the world's most painted upon object. A Carnegie Mellon tradition with rules governing how and when it can be painted. There is a fun page about it somewhere on the CMU website.
Image

Some students playing soccer on the snowed-in Football field. I was surprised CMU even had a football stadium. It is approximately the size of my high school's (not big) and apparently it doesn't fill on game days.

Any advice on how to prepare for the Tepper interview? Flying out to Tepper next week and want to make sure I am prepared :)

All the best! When did you get the interview invite



Thank you! I got an invite in the first week of January to go to Tepper for a women's weekend. I bet other interviews are coming out later since the women's weekend seemed like a small/random thing, so I wouldn't be worried if you didn't get one yet!

Given the increase in the 2nd round applicants, I get a feeling the number of invites in the 2nd wave and the timing of it is function of how the 1st wave interview candidates have performed.

Deposits are due on February 19th for R1, so the school might be releasing some more invitations depending on how that works out.

A small correction. Deposits are due on the 15th for R1 and yes, they might be waiting for the date and then decide on further invitations.

All the best!

Thanks for the correction, that could have ended badly for me. I plan on putting down my deposit for Tepper tonight! I'm hoping for an offer from Ross, but really like Tepper as well.

I was looking for details regarding core course waiver on Tepper's website, but there's absolutely no info. Does anyone have any clue about it?

I was talking to one of the second year students. He said there are course waivers. You will get the info about qualifying exams and all in Basecamp.

What information are you looking for? You basically take an exemption exam for the core class, and if you pass, you can an elective (or just have one less class that mini).

Thanks theo09 and farful :)

If I make in, then I would like to get waiver for 'Probability and Statistics' and 'Financial and Managerial Accounting I'. As you mentioned that an exemption class is required, I would like to know about the eligibility requirements for taking these exemption exams. And it would be great if you can provide more info about the waiver stuff.

Hi all, I'm a R2 applicant from Latin America. Just interviewed 10 days ago in campus. Had mine with Jackie Jones, she was great. Now we just have to wait it out.

If you want to exempt out of a class, you need to take a 2-3 hour exemption exam for that corresponding class. There are no eligibility requirements otherwise.

There is one exam for Prob&Stats, and there is one exemption exam for both Accounting I and Accounting II (mini 1 and mini 3 classes). If you have a CPA, you can exempt out of accounting without taking the exam.

You will be provided a syllabus to see what is covered in the class/exemption exam.

There are always a handful of people who exempt out of both accounting and stats in mini 1. In fact, I would encourage it if you're comfortable with the material.

Hope that helps.

Haha ... just wait for the 15th. The R1 admits have to pay the initial deposit before 15th, based on that they would surely roll out some more invites.
Hang in there :)

All the best!

Hi All,

I attended the interview on campus on the 5th of Feb. The interviewer was very friendly and the questions were pretty standard. The campus atmosphere is very warm and welcoming and the adcom members are very friendly. However, it was brutally cold that morning and I had a hard time finding parking spot outside the Posner Hall. Also, the interviewer may or may not have reviewed your application before the interview. We started the interview chatting about the weather. She asked me few basic questions

1. The reason I switched companies.
2. Why MBA now?
3. A time when my supervisor was not very supportive of me and how I handled it.
4. What do I do outside of work?
5. What do I bring to the table?
6. Do I have any questions?

We spent the last 10 minutes chatting about Pittsburgh.

After the interview, I attended an information Session and a campus tour and lunch with a second year student. I also interacted with other adcom members before catching a flight back home.
