Okay, so I just completed my Foster video interview.

The questions were actually difficult if I compare these with Rotman Interview Questions.

I was asked the following questions:

Time to think: 30 sec
Time to speak: 1:30 mins.

Question 1: Discuss about an impactfull achievement from your professional life and tell us why do you think it was impactfull?

Question 2: Tell us about a time when you handled a task on which you had zero information. What were the steps you took to begin with, what were the strategies and what were the end results?

Overall, I was confident and gave answers to all the sub parts.

I hope this may help some of you. :)

Abhimahna,

Thanks for the head up man!! I am thinking of giving both the video interviews for Rotman and Foster tomorrow. Wish me luck!

Thanks!

Can these video interviews be the make and break decision of the application?

Any idea how much weight these carry?

As far as I understand they are checking the following things:

1. Your communication skills

2. Your confidence level

3. How do you react when you are asked to speak on the spot on something?

Finally, these could or could not be make or break decision for the application.

If a person doesn't know how to communicate, obviously it's going to be a problem but if you are okay or better than okay, then I believe what matters the most are the other parts of the application.

Good Luck :)

Has anyone else had issues with their device setup through Kira Talent? At first it couldn't detect my camera, then after getting that resolved, it can't detect my computer's microphone. I've tried allowing Flash, disabling ad blockers, the whole lot, and still can't record any audio. I've put in a ticket with Kira Talent, but figured I'd see if anyone else had issues.

I just submitted the video essay. Both were straightforward as stated by abhimahna here. Mostly related to professional struggle and how did you overcome the issues you faced.

I would suggest listing 3-4 issues you faced professionally and practice them. I had questions about issues I faced in career and how did I handle it. And some general questions about the business relationship.

As stated by abhimahna here- They test your impromptu skills in speaking, decision making and how well you respond in a timed manner to a direct question.

Below are my suggestions.

1. Look Confidence.
2. Look at the Webcam instead of your video. So that you are looking at the person who would be watching the video.
3. Smile- time to time. And be casual as you are speaking to a friend over skype.

I know it is only 1 min 30 secs. But it is a lot of time in term of impromptu speaking when you know what you need to speak.

All the best!

Hope they call us for the interview. Since the program is very selective due to the class size.

P.S- I just sent my official score to the school. Hope it would reach by the end by week.

Hey murtuzahn ,

I don't think so. As far as I know, they will ask generic leadership related questions only.

So, you are good to go with only general facts.

Hey sealberg,

I was facing the same issue with Chrome. Switch to Mozilla. It should work fine.

Applied to R1 as well. Completed my Video Interview portion earlier today. Based on last year's thread, in person interview invites could be sent out as early as next week. Good luck everyone!

Finally got my Kira interview done. Did anyone's application status change to "Under Review" (or similar) after submitting the video interview? Mine still says "Submitted".

Check your application status page. If it says the scores are received, then you don't have to worry. If it did not show up yet, email the adcom about the status.

Looks like my app says that an official GMAT/GRE test score report is in the materials required to be sent in, but further down it has both sets of test data from my two takes that I sent in August. I guess I'll just email again to verify.

I just completed my video interview. Got following questions:
1. Describe the attributes of a great leader
2.Share an example of a time when you were given new information that affected a decision you had already made. How did you proceed?

I could not complete the response to 2nd question in time. Overall I feel I could have done better...
Keeping fingers crossed....Lets hope for the best....Good Luck Guys...:)

Finished my video interview. They asked me to talk about an activity/extra curricular and how it changed my perspective, and the second question was to tell about a setback I experienced, how I dealt with it, and the results.
