"Hi Guys, I had my interview for the fast-track MBA program with Brent Upham, such a great guy. Interview lasted for about 30 to 40 minutes. 1.Walk me through your resume. 2. Why MBA and why SMU Cox 3. My long term and short term goals? 4. I had indicated that i plan to work in consulting (Mckinsey,BCG,Bains)in my home country post-MBA so I was asked what if my short term goals fall through, what if i get an opportunity in the US(This was probably meant to test my flexibility and global mindset) Other discussion points stemmed from my response to his questions."

"Hi folks, If you're reading this you've either got an invite or anticipating one. Congratulations on making it this far. I had my interview with Brent D. Upham. It lasted for over 50 mins I guess. Here are the questions I was asked: 1. Walk me through your resume. 2. Why MBA and why SMU Cox (do your research on the curriculum and the professors, that helped me)? 3. My long term and short term goals? 4. I had mentioned potentially working with Amazon or FedEx immediately post-MBA so I was asked what if my short term goals aren't met. 5. What is your biggest achievement? Before the interview ended, I asked him a few questions about his favourite thing(s) about Cox! Hope this is helpful. Please feel free to ping me or tag me if you have any further questions. Best wishes, Sourav"

"I had my interview with Brett Powell. She was a very nice person. The questions asked were pretty normal. Questions such as: Why MBA? Why SMU? How would you contribute to the program? Behavioral questions such as Working in a team experience? Leadership experience? Other programs that I applied to? so on so forth... Do not remember exactly much. Gave time to ask the questions I might have for her! Also, asked me to reach out if I get any admits earlier than SMU's decision."

"My Interview was taken by Hannah. IT was mostly behavioral questions. She initially told about herself then asked to tell about myself. Then she asked why MBA at this point of time, Why SMU and she asked to quote leadership skills I exhibited in my company and asked many follow up questions on that to make herself clear on each point I stated. She was going through my resume simultaneously. As a whole, it was a cool and interactive interview. Hope this helps you. If you already completed your interview, All the best."

"Just got my interview done with JR McGrath. Very friendly chat. The usual question Walk-through? Why MBA? Why now? What are you looking for in a school? Difficult situation at work? hobbies? And in the end questions by me. Nothing formal. For guys yet to be interviewed, chill and give it your best shot."
