Hi Everyone,

I already had my interview with Wake Forest later last month but now I got an e-mail where-in the Career management services head Mr. Guy Groff has asked me to attend a discussion with him.

I am not sure what to make out of this additional interview. Can anyone please let me know if he/she went through a similar process?

Desperately waiting for a reply (have the interview scheduled for today). Wish me luck.

Thanks
FoldedEarth

Sorry if this doesn't reach you before your interview. I actually had the same call that you are mentioning. It was a bit of a repeat of your initial interview, and don't be surprised if Guy gives you a hard time, that's just what he does.

I was at Wake Forest last weekend for the Red Carpet Weekend and I was able to gain a deeper insight to the program. One of the realizations that hit me, that much like Tuck, Wake Forest is very much a fit program. They are looking for students who are willing to fully buy into the program and because part of the community. Rankings aside, there are a lot of similarities between Tuck and Wake.

The most important thing to me in my search was the ability to get individual attention at the school I attend. Wake Forest pulls out all the stops for its students, and will use any and all contacts at their disposal to help you find an internship and a job. The alum will always take the time to answer your questions and go out of their way to help you. The class size is only 64 students per year (give or take a couple) and that gives the students the advantage of not burning out the business contacts that the schools with larger classes (250+) might do.

I'm interested in your choice of schools. How does Wake Forest fit in with the others, say Tuck for instance?

Well I was going to take a shot at Tuck as my stretch school, but I didn't do as well on the GMAT as I anticipated. I was in particular looking for good schools that were good values, especially when looking at A&M (who I interviewed with), Wake Forest (who I interviewed with on Wed) and BYU (will 2nd round apply if Wake doesn't work out).

I was referred to Wake by family friend who is a Wake MBA grad. It was interesting since wake was on the list of schools I was looking at for my MBA before due to its spectacular job placements and hearing about the program from a former student made my mind up to apply. I loved the campus there and I think the interview went great. If accepted with $I would most likely attend Wake. If I'm not accepted I will take round 2 shots at Broad (MSU), Marriot (BYU), and U of Illinois.

Right now I'm having a hard time because I have been accepted to the evening program and I live in Durham, i.e. I would have a 1.5hr drive (One Way) two nights a week. Good luck on the applications!

Please help me with the interview questions. Hello, I hate to sound generic here, but they will have a lot of the "general" questions you'll see out of a b-school, why mba now? What separates you from other candidates? What are you plans after b-school? Why Wake Forest? Don't forget to read up on the other stand questions some as well; give me a time when etc. type of questions. Check out this link http://www.accepted.com/mba/interviews/ ... mit=Submit They have some good feedback from other students that have interviewed.

Please help me with the interview questions. During my interview we pretty much ran down my resume and spent a large portion of the time tying my previous experience to what my future job goals are. They are very invested in helping their MBA students find employment. I put my deposit down a couple weeks ago and they already have me doing stuff to get prepped for the job search.

It was with Kevin and I was extremely comfortable throughout. The Adcom has now asked for my WES evaluation which itself costs about 160$.
Is the WES a mandatory thing for non-US undergrads or can I ask them to waive it?

Thanks.

Hello Guys,

I received an admission offer from Wake Forest last night. I had my interview on the 20th of March, was interviewed by Mr Kevin Bender. I just wanted to find out how is the placement scenario for international students here at Wake. Could someone please shed some light on this issue?

Cheers!
