nc That's what I thought as well after looking at the terribly difficult interviews that everyone's been facing in R2.

hey guys,

just came bk from my interview. i thought it was decent. nothing hard. the standard questions.

1. Walk me through your resume
2. Why MBA? Why now?
3. Why Chicago?
4. Talk about a leadership experience at some job.

Some follow-up questions. But fairly straightforward. No feedback. I asked her at the end to talk a little bit about her experience at GSB.

Overall, nothing crazy.

Good luck for upcoming interviews!

Cheers,
Nups


Mine was similarly standard. Nothing crazy.

1. Walk me through your resume. He took a lot of time on the resume about the what, how, when of every task
2. Why Chicago
3. Current job, what kind of communication problems I face with the remote members of my team
4. According to me, what do Project Management, Business Development and Product Management mean
5. Why did we open a China office (considering the small size of our company)

And follow-up questions.

I asked him about his experience at GSB -- how it was different from what he was expecting. And based on that, how he'd recommend me to live the GSB experience. I also asked him how he'd suggest me to prepare between now and when MBA starts. Finally I asked him about his job (He is in Operational Management. I had already read his profile on LinkedIn to ask specific questions).

We'll see in a month if I did well enough. All the best to everyone!

Congrats mNeo, kk.iyer and others who have completed the interview.

I am planning to be on campus on 25th Feb. Anyone visiting GSB on that date?

On the preparation side, I am getting lot of feedback from my friends which is good. One alum from work is on vacation the entire next week and I cant get in touch with him at all :(

I agree with ncprasad's theory that the interview is more like a weeding out process since a large number have been called.

If you mean today... I'm honestly not sure. I'm often on campus and Monday is usually just as busy as any other day but... today is a holiday and I'm not sure how many professors are "observing" it. Generally speaking, at least last quarter anyway, the GSB does have classes on Monday afternoons, so if you heard otherwise, maybe some classes were canceled today.

I assume you mean the 25th. Although interviews are winding down, so maybe a few less people will be around, but there should be at least some.

I decided to interview at the GSB campus on 2/29. Anyone know if they interview current undergraduates/early career candidates by a special admissions officer? It sounds like the R2 interviews are pretty tough!

Chicago calls me for an interview :-D It was updated online early today and then got an email a few mins back. Feels good right now.

Definitely going for an off-campus interview as I could find a local alumni. And the campus interviews do sound tough...

goodluck everybody,
ujjib

thanks KingKreep and spidey...This is going to be my first interview, and all the debriefs on this site are proving to be very helpful.

I checked the available campus interview slots and there seem to be multiple available over a four day period...so everyone still waiting for interview invite, keep your hopes up.

Is it possible to drop off your official transcript when interviewing on campus or is it better to mail it to the admissions office ? What have people done so far ?
