Sure I'll let you know. 25 days is a long time to wait I saw some people who applied in the second round already got admitted into the program or maybe they applied in round 1 ?

Was told to check the mail package for details on scholarship. Was wondering if they normally inform about the scholarship on the call.

Can someone who's received an admit clarify please?

I got admitted for R2 last week. They didn't mention scholarship at all during the call. So I was stunned when I noticed a full-tuition scholarship in the admit booklet.

Hello! I also have one tomorrow. I had one with them last year at a visit as well, so I'll share my experience with you. It's very conversational. They'll ask you to walk through your resume and about your work experiences. They did not ask any questions about my undergraduate schools, but I would be prepared just in case. They did ask me why I wanted to go to Simon. They did a great job of helping me feel relaxed. Be yourself and prepare for all of the standard interview questions, you'll do great! There is also an interview debrief section here on GMAT for Simon that has some excellent debriefs.

Good luck! Are you interviewing in person tomorrow?

Hi!
Wow, thanks! I have a video interview, which is surprising since I am in Philly. What about you?

Hi!
Don't worry at all about the interview. Everyone is super nice! Just have clarity and oral practice of the following questions:

1. Walk me through your resume/ Tell me about yourself
2. Why MBA and why now?
3. Why Simon
4. Professional and Personal challenge and how you overcame it

I have been admitted with scholarship and I was asked the above questions on campus by an alumni who was super sweet, but I'll also list down a few others I was asked at other schools:

5. 3 words that describe you
6. Leadership experience
7. What did you learn about yourself from the application process
8. Strongest and weakest parts of your application

Good luck on the interview. Just keep calm, SMILE and be confident. Imagine that you are already a business leader and talk like one!

Parts that i struggled with during prep - not answering the exact question being asked/ forgetting to answer the second part of the question/ spending too much time on problem and not on solution and results. For eg- Professional challenge and what did you learn? allocate your time in a 1:3 ratio - describe problem and talk more about how you solved and what was outcome.
