Look up some common “STAR” interview questions, review those and you’ll be fine. Mine was not overly difficult, more of a conversation than anything.

Good luck!

I actually already accepted and yeah I’ll share. I have 2 years work experience in engineering (3 at matriculation). I have an undergraduate gpa of 3.4. GMAT score of 690. My specialization is CFIB. And, yes I did interview. I think they interview everyone that they plan to admit as a final check. Finally, I don’t expect that they’ll try to cancel the program again for a very long time. The alumni really made an impressive stand.

Hey Guys, applied in Round 1 , but I am yet to hear anything from them. They sent me an email last week saying my application has been sent to admissions committee, and after that nothing. When can I expect to hear from them any ideas.

Anyone received an interview call in Round 1.

Getting really impatient as the deadline for announcement of results is 15 th December.

What should I do???
