Are all the interview prompts the same? Or are they varied according to which TBD slot you signed up for?



I don't think this is a good question to ask as the interview email does mention to not discuss the interview questions with anyone outside the admission committee.

Thanks for the heads up! I didn't read all the way to the bottom of the email yet, thank you for letting me know!

I suspect they are. They have been in the past at least.

NYC applicants who are interested - want to meet at 4pm on Saturday (11/7) at:

Starbucks at Trump Tower
725 5th Ave, New York, NY 10022

We can plan and practice for the team-based discussion together to get more comfortable with this group-dynamic sort of interview :)

I self-prepared last year and practiced with some current students. The general advice is to try to stay calm and just pretend you're in a regular work meeting. Be mindful of time limits and avoid the extremes of either a) dominating the discussion, or b) not participating. Many current students I talked to said their entire TBD group (or close to it) got in, so don't think of the folks in your group as competition, approach the situation like you're working together to collectively get in. The time goes by really fast, so the biggest thing is moving the group forward and finishing on time. That means there's no time for disagreement, try to compromise quickly and propose alternative solutions if you disagree with someone's idea. Similarly, the 10-minute one-on-one interview that follows goes by extremely fast, so its better to keep it short and specific. Remember these are all conducted by 2nd year students, so they're just human beings--try to put yourself in their shoes and think about what you would look for. It's really a great opportunity to interact with current students and your potential peers for a glimpse of what the classroom experience might be like. So really, you want to authentically fit in.

My own two cents is that the TBD really isn't a make-or-break. I stayed in touch with some folks from my group and we had an email chain going when decisions went out. One that got accepted made a couple blatant no-nos during the discussion and the other was a model interviewee. I'm pretty self-critical and don't think I did anything wrong, I think I got dinged because my application overall lacked specificity (in my essays and recs) and needed to more explicitly demonstrate fit.

Honestly, I think the whole TBD experience was what moved Wharton from my #4 choice to my #1. It's truly a great opportunity to gage how well you're going to enjoy the next 2 years.


Thanks for the insights and good luck this time! Third second time's the charm :-D

A follow up question for you, as the prompt for this year (which I believe everyone got the same, according to P&Q post (they even posted lol), should we introduce ourselves at the 1-min pitch or should we just pretend we are a member of the club and start with our idea? One minute is fairly short to deliver a clear message already, having to introduce your background seems kinda hard.

Hey guys, thank you for all the good wishes.

Just did my Lauder interview a couple of hours ago. It was very casual, conversational and much different than a regular MBA interview. The questions were very focused on why the extra work of doing a dual-degree and how can Lauder help you in your professional ambitions. Another very important thing was to show that you already have multicultural academic/professional experiences in your life.

One important thing: it is a blind interview, they do not have access to your file, only to your CV and a couple of info that the adcom sends the interviewer.

Hope this helps future interviewees, specially those with off-campus!

Hi Guys,

Thanks so much for the insight, mfprado1073

It sounds like yours went really well :) Congrats on finishing up with that part of the process! Good luck with final decisions and your other MBA processes.

One question though - why was your interview so early? I didn't see any time slots earlier than the 9th when I tried to sign up for the Lauder portion.

Had my interview off-campus with a Lauder alum, which gave the process a little more flexibility than usual. Lauder admissions team made the introductions, he proposed a time the same week and I took it. Glad this part is over.

All the best with your practice today!
