I just had my Skype interview with Nicole Chambati yesterday. It was pretty similar to all the previous interviews listed here.
She mentioned that she had only seen my résumé so I could re-use stories from my application for this interview.
The questions went in the following order:

1. Walk me through your professional experience and why MBA now?
2. Why Tepper?
3. Short term goals and Plan B?
4. Describe an incident when someone rubbed you the wrong way or when you had to deal with conflict?
5. How do people leverage you as a resource?
6. Describe a time when you overcame a professional problem through a personal experience?
7. Describe a time when you used the above mentioned resources in your personal experience to help someone else overcome a similar professional difficulty? (Took me some thinking for this one)
8. Any additional information that was not covered in this interview or your application.
9. Any questions for me?

It was fairly casual and she was very sympathetic towards the fact that it was almost 2 AM here in India.
It lasted for only about 24 mins, which is why I feel I may have rushed through it :| .

Had my interview on campus on November 16th. Was lucky to avoid the cold weather that came in this week. No real trick questions and the interview was very conversational.

For those wondering about the area, Pittsburgh is separated into different sections. The 'college town' portion (U of Pitt and CMU) is nice. Tepper is right at the corner of CMU, right across from a large park. Most commuting is done via walk/bus/subway. You probably wouldn't need a car. Admissions was helpful and the students were very open about engaging with others (unfortunately, I had to catch a flight for work so I couldn't stay for the full tour).

If you get a chance to visit, I'd recommend it.

Its great to hear that you liked the campus. I personally love the campus.

Let me know if you require any help to get around the campus, let me know.

And winter is coming !!

Any Indian candidate facing "Transcript Grading Scale" issue (my bachelors degree is evaluated in percentage)? My application has been moved to R2, as Tepper wants a letter from my undergrad university, and officials at my undergrad university say they cannot issue such a letter since nothing like this has been done in the past. Stuck in administrative mess.

What sort of document do they want?
Tepper needs a Grading scale that explains how your GPA/Percentage is calculated.
Usually you have it on the back of your mark sheet/transcript.

I guess you have submitted marks sheet. You need to submit transcript which explains to any university how to interpret your scores.

I guess you have submitted marks sheet. You need to submit transcript which explains to any university how to interpret your scores.


So the courses I did and marks I scored in each course is mentioned on the marksheet. The aggregate score is in percent. Should I get a letter from university that says the grading scale is 100?

They want a letter from university which explains the grading scale. Yeah, I checked the mark sheet, there is nothing like it on the back the mark sheets.

Even my bachelors degree is evaluated in percentage but at the end of the transcript few things are mentioned, like:
minimum passing marks (in theory/practicals/internal exams, etc. ) and also what your %age indicates, that is, if you are in this %age range then you get this recognition and so on.

So you could check if your transcript states this or not, and if not, then look for a format which explicitly mentions this. (Check for such information on the backside of your mark sheets)
How did you receive the information that it's moved to R2? Did they mail you? I am assuming that since I did not receive any such info by mail or on the application portal so far, so the info provided above is sufficient for them.

Nope that is not enough, you need to get university transcripts. The University transcripts will have your percentage scores and a direction to interpret those scores. For example, my university provides two pages transcript. 1st Page provides percentage scored and 2nd page tells how to interpret those scores and what will be the ranking of those grades. For example, my university provides grades as First class with distinction. When this grade is awarded etc.

Your marksheet will not be enough and you need to ask for university transcripts. Normally you might get originals in sealed envelope and one zerox copy (depends on university to university). Once you get an admit from Tepper, you need to send the sealed copy of the transcripts to the Tepper adcom for further verification.

Oh okay. Thanks for this. I got email from Admissions stating the same. So if you didn't get such a mail from them, it should be good.
