Ohh, thanks for sharing this. I thought it lasted for less time because she got bored despite I was very energetic throughout the interview.

Now, our fate will be decided on 11th Dec. :fingers_crossed:

I would agree with everyone here that the interview is very relaxed. Don't expect any curveballs. Prepare standard questions as outlined in some of the previous posts well

FYI - R1 Decision release date on the UNC website is Dec 11 and not Dec 16

Done with the interview. The interviewer was very calming and made the session very interactive. Again, more of a discussion for knowing the candidate better, rather than an intense interview. The interviewer introduced herself and told me about the interview format that she would follow. She went on to speak about her career progression and then switched over to the interview.

She started off with why did I choose the particular concentration for my undergrad? Then she asked me about my internships and jobs, and then about my current job profile. Thereafter, she asked me a couple of behavioural questions on team experiences, about a time when I did not get a desired output though I put in efforts, what in my opinion is the best leadership style, and what qualities do I think the team members must have? She then asked the usual why MBA, what short term goals and why, why Kenan-Flagler etc. questions. Finally, she asked if I had any questions for her.

Overall, it was a wonderful interview: very conversational and very easy going. The interview lasted for a little over 30 mins.

So, that's it. Anyone who wants to know more, feel free to shoot me a PM. Happy to help. :-)

I had my UNC interview with an adcom member over Skype on 6th Nov (10:45 AM EST). I do agree with others - no odd/hardball questions. My interview was very conversational and lasted 35-40 minutes. I'm a bit jealous seeing abhimahna 's question list! :P I got asked almost nothing!! My questions were
1) Walk me through your resume & a follow up conversation including why an MBA now (NOT why MBA) - lasted 15 mins
2) Do you have any questions for me - lasted ~8 mins
3) If I were to call up your supervisor, what would be the 2 words he would use to describe you. A follow conversation with anecdotes on why did I pick those 2 words - lasted a bit over 10 mins

During the last few mins, she asked if there was something more that you wanted the admissions committee to know. I was like - "yeah, everything is remaining!!" :) So I told her that I've seriously thought about my goals, strengths/weaknesses and the fit with UNC. Since we were running out of time, I asked her pick between - Why MBA / ST LT goals/ strengths weaknesses leadership traits/ Why Kenan Flagler. She picked "Why Kenan Flagler". We talked about that, maximum for 4 mins, before we disconnected.

It think it went okay. I'm not sure if I could have timed it better; she was really interested in the career sections of my CV and our entire conversation was based on that.
Don't worry about the anxiety guys, the adcoms are really nice and they WILL make you feel comfortable.
Also, in 40 mins I was asked almost 0 standard questions. So, apart from the standard ST LT goals and Why questions, it would help if you have some 3 or 4 anecdotes pertaining to your CV. And it would be a bonus if those anecdotes can bring out some good behavioural traits! :D

All the very best!!

Just completed my interview and it was very conversational with straight forward questions that lasted for close to 40 minutes. He started off by giving his background and then moved onto questions.
My questions were : ( don't remember the order of questions clearly :D)
1) Where did you grow up and spend childhood ?
2) Why did you choose the elec engineering as major and eco as minor ?
3) What were the leadership roles that you played in college ? (This was follow up from my answer to the previous ques)
4) What did you learn from the first job ? Why did you change ?
5) Why did you move into the current job ?
6) Why MBA ?
7) Why Kenan Flagler ?
8) ST and LT goals
9) Strengths/ Weakness that your recommender would talk about
10) Talk about a work that you are most proud off
11) Any questions for me ?

Hi,

I believe it could be either Adcom or second year student. I have seen people getting interviewed by 2nd year students and I was interviewed by Adcom.

Good luck :)

I had my Skype interview and it was with an adcom member. I guess, Skype interviews are taken by adcom only.
All the best.

It wasn't a second year. She was an elderly lady, couldn't remember her name.

Standard questions. It started with a background of my location, company, experience and others. Then questions on why MBA, why UNC etc.

They were definitely interested a lot in "team experience". Few questions on which school I'd choose given an option and why and then on my hobbies.

It went well but the weird thing was that after she asked me if there is anything else that I would like to mention, if not mentioned in the application or interview, she did not ask me if I had any questions. It was around 28 mins and she was rushing to conclude it. I did not know if it would be rude, so I didn't ask her, if I could ask any questions.
