Hello there! I have my skype interview with a second year student tomorrow and would really appreciate it if those who have already interviewed could share their experiences. This will definitely help me as well as others who haven't interviewed yet. Thanks in advance!

It is a blind interview. Why MBA, Why Kelley followed by behavioral questions. The interviewer will keep on noting down things as you answer the questions, so don't feel distracted. It is very similar to a normal adcom interview. Only difference is you can ask them questions about student life!

I submitted the application about a week ago. Interview was Friday, and received acceptance today.

Just a quick background and my own opinions:
I was originally ready to attend the Rice MBA back in 2016/2017, but put it on hold due to not knowing my “why”. If you are not crystal clear and have good introspection about the MBA and yourself, it will not automatically make you successful.

I ended up taking the money I would have spent getting the MBA and invested it in real estate instead. I then started my own business on the side while working full time in engineering (IT business). I decided to get an MS in Engineering, because I still was not certain I wanted to go the business route completely.

Fast forward a few years and I have a lot that I am able to reflect on with a lot of real life failures at work and in my own personal ambitions. I am closer to now knowing my “why” and ready to consider an MBA.

I always consider things on ROI now and long term cash flow. Basically put, can I invest that same money over the course of 30-40 years and will it underperform my MBA investment or outperform. The scholarship really helps balance that equation.

Sorry for the tangent, but I felt like some of it needed to be said for MBA hopefuls.

Sure, happy to help! My interview lasted about 35 minutes and was conducted by a second year student. It was quite conversational and he didn't seem to have a set list of questions as my answers led to follow up questions. Started out with the usual tell me about yourself, why mba, questions about my current role, why kelley, a few behavioral questions on leadership and I got to ask a few questions at the end.

Met him in Bangalore. It was quite conversational. I was asked the same questions as someone had posted above - why MBA, why now, st and lt goals, what would you bring to the classroom, anything else you'd like to share etc.

He seemed kind and was interested in listening.

Yeah he is in Delhi the day before. I am not sure. For one school I did to f2f alum interview but didn’t like it much. Lol

I don’t think they hold it against you if you don’t come f2f?

I too received an invite from Jim Holmen. He is in Bangalore on 19th and 20th November so will schedule a f2f interview. What about you? Are you planning Skype or in-person?

Does anyone know the decision release pattern of Kelley? Are the results gonna come out exactly on Dec 20 or we can expect calls before the decision deadline?

Hi Narenn

Looking at the trends, they definitely give out decisions way early and via emails. Last time (Class of 2021) it was 9 days in advance.

Also, in my interview with Jim, I got to know that they give out decisions ‘no later than’ the deadline. This also happened for class of 2019 as well I am sure.

So people have to keep biting nails after Dec 10, that means. Phew.

Thanks Rick! These inputs are indeed helpful. There is no need for a chat room for Kelley during the decision phase I guess. Let me know though if applicants want a dedicated chat room for themselves.
