Hello Friends,

I am going to interview with Jim Kraanzcsuch today. This is my second interview. I am really anxious seeing debriefs for some of the folks who interview with him. Does anybody have any pointers on interviewing with him?

Things like,

1. Points to stay clear of?
2. Questions to be asked at the end of the interview.
3. Points that should be highlighted?

Any help is highly appreciated.

Thanks

Good luck today! The biggest advice I can give is have a pretty clear vision of your career goals that you can articulate during your interview and be able to say why an MBA from Georgia Tech will help you achieve them. When Jim asks "why do you want to get an MBA right now?", you should have a good answer ready for that.

In terms of questions to ask, try to ask a question or two that show you've done your research about the program.

Also, if your application has any possible weak spots, have a talking point or two ready when asked during the interview. For example, I job-hopped a little after undergrad, but I had a solid response prepared when asked about it on my interview.

Hope this helps at all! Good luck again!

Anuj200291, exactly this. He is a no-nonsense kind of guy and there is really no way you're going to be able to hide any weaknesses in your profile. He will confront you about them and you will have to address them outright. Honestly, out of all my interviews, this was the most career-intensive. Do not get flustered or otherwise shaken from his extremely direct questions. He's looking for candidates that he can put in front of potential employers with confidence.

Ramrod and AvianDentures, Thanks a lot for your inputs. But nothing could have prepared me for the interview with Jim. :)

Just had my interview with him. It lasted an hour.

Tough questions putting me in a tight spot! But he ended by telling me a story and asking me if he seems very serious to me.

All together the toughest interview I had. All the best to all others interviewing with him. He's kind if you know your act. Any loose spots.. He'll tear it apart!

Received an admit today:)
I have a doubt though. The mail says that I'll receive a notification separately from the department in case I have received any scholarship but there is no word from them. Isn't the scholarship info supposed to come at the same time as the admit?
Or does it take some time.

Please shed some light if you know anything.
Thanks :)

awesome -- thanks for posting that pic.

Nothing has shown up in my apartment complex's tiny mailbox so hopefully my leasing office is holding that as a package. I was starting to get concerned because I hadn't received mine yet.

The courier service they sent it through had emailed me a tracking Id . You might want to check your spam for that mail!

That's interesting, I received my official letter of acceptance and my fellowship offer but did not receive what that is in the picture.

I just received my letter of acceptance. But it does not mention any fellowship or scholarship. Does it mean I don't have one? Or that information will be in the snail mail?

Hi

I want to do my MBA in Operations Mgt. I got admits from Penn State University and Georgia Tech University. (with full scholarship in both)

Please help me decide between which of the two universities to attend for this particular specialization. I'm talking mostly in terms of the number of Job opportunities for Operations Mgt. in the Manufacturing sector or FMCG industries and also my chances of excelling there and actually landing a good job even though I have a completely software related background. (software Eng: 2.5 yrs of exp). Please note that I'm looking to switch my career completely from Software/Tech background.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks a lot!

PS: I know this is not the thread for seeking advice on choosing between schools, but I've had no success on the 'Admitted' threads and I need to make a decision as soon as possible.

You can cross check with the adcom. I went on what was written on their website application instructions and india wasn't mentioned in the list of countries that were eligible for a waiver. If you are required to give the toefl ask the adcom for an extension for your toefl score submission and give it asap.
