"I just had my UNC KF's AdCom interview. The interviewer (Jean Elia) was a very senior representative of AdCom itself. She's worked at Kenan for 25 years (with 10 years in the Dean's Office and for some duration as the Chief Education Officer as well) & was the initiator of the Online MBA program at Kenan back in the day. She mentioned that she retired 3-years ago and now participates in these Admissions Interviews in a way to give back to the school and community in whatever way possible. The entire conversation was very formal throughout the interview questions and then, in the end, it switched to completely informal. She had a set of questions that she asked in order - 1. Why an MBA at this point in your career? What are your short-term goals? 2. Why Kenan Flagler is the right place for you to get an MBA? 3. What makes you unique or different than your peers? 4. How would your manager describe you? 5. What was a recent difficult situation you were in? How did you manage to go past it? 6. What do you think is the difference between a Leader and a Manager? 7. What motivates you? 8. What does leadership mean to you and what's your leadership style? 9. What two or three things beyond your application would you want the Admissions Committee to remember about you? 10. Any questions for her? She was very warm and considerate. She took her time to listen to and understand each word of my answer and prompted me to repeat wherever required (because of intermediate network issues as Kenan has its own Interview portal instead of Zoom or Google Meet). At the end, she mentioned that she loved talking to me and that it was a great conversation!"

"I remember being interview by the head of the experiential learning and the adcom people. It's like a conversation - Tell me about yourself - Why NUS MBA? - What do you want to learn from NUS? (I said leadership) - Tell me about the leader in your own company you admire (I mention my boss and Covid-19) - Oh, you shared about Covid-19. Tell me how you have helped your company overcome obstacles during such time After that, the second interviewer started asking me what I want to achieve from the NUS MBA with digital transformation, as I have achieved a lot. I said I want to learn how to sell technology solutions. I want to note that this is just a brief summary of the interview. The interviewers were very nice and it was actually this experience that made me choose NUS"

"My Interview was done on 16th Nov by a second year student. She was not even remotely connected to my domain so it was very mechanical on her part, though I would say she tried her best. It started with small talk about weather, cricket world cup, etc 1. TMAY 2. Why MBA 3. Why Johnson 4. What kind of a leader you want to be? 5. What you want to learn outside the classroom? 6. Anything i didnt ask 7. questions for her I would say I gave it pretty well, hoping for the best!"

"I had a good interview I think, the interviewer was super friendly, I don’t think she was 3rd party. These were the questions asked: 1. Why mba? Why now? 2. 3 things ad com should know about you 3. TMAT you had to give a bad news to someone (I took about 30 secs to gather my thoughts here) 4. Which values are the most important to you? 5. Short term goals 6. TMAT you got a constructive feedback She seemed pretty involved in my answers, no follow up questions but had some comments after every response like ‘yes I understand how it must have been for you etc.’ Still had around 5 mins for questions, I asked if she has had any weird/interesting interview experiences, laughed about them, spoke about life chapel hill, places she’s been to etc. very casual and informal"

"Hi, I had my Optional Peer Interview with a second-year McCombs student. It was relatively much easier than one with an AdCom member. No specific questions. Just Tell me About Yourself, post-MBA goals, and why McCombs. After that, it was an open question-answer discussion. I asked 3-4 questions and she provided whatever information she had about those areas. I felt this was much more natural, however, that was expected considering it was a Peer Interview without any direct Behavioural questions, and more of an opportunity for me to ask questions w.r.t. the program and student experiences."

"My interview was with a second-year student and lasted around 35-40 minutes. The discussion covered the following topics: 1. Tell me about yourself 2. Post-MBA goals 3. How would Kelley help you achieve your post-MBA goals? 4. (I mentioned my interest in marketing in one of my answers) When and how did I realize my passion for marketing? 5. Biggest Achievement 6. Leadership style. 7. Reason for switching companies. I was asked a lot of follow-up questions for each answer, but the interview felt very comfortable and conversational. Also, we talked about our shared interests (long-term goal) for a while. Then, I asked a few questions."

"Hi, I had my Interview with the MBA Admissions Counsellor at Kelley. She is a second-year student currently, and the entire discussion felt very easy and conversational in nature. She made sure I was comfortable and started by introducing herself. These were the questions in order: 1. Tell me about yourself. 2. Her next question was about one of my extracurricular experiences from my Resume (which I also mentioned in my Introduction). 3. Why MBA and Why Kelley? 4. What would be an ideal workplace environment for you? 5. What are your immediate short-term goals post-MBA? 6. What was your greatest professional accomplishment, and what was your role in achieving the same? 7. Any Questions for her? The interview lasted approximately 30 minutes. She mentioned that a few of the answers were very unique as compared to lots of interviews that she has had so far. She mentioned that the application reviewers will be different and she will simply provide her inputs based on the interview to the AdCom panel who will soon share the updates/decision. Overall, I have a good feeling about my interview."

"It was super quick though just 20 mins and rest of the time was given for me to ask questions ~ if any for about 10 mins The questions were again like any general mba interview, nothing that I found different or weird. I think it’s important to have the story in our mind clear and research about the school. We should be good! Hope that helps"

"Very similar to some of the other people in this chat’s experience. It was with a 3rd party, they were very engaged. Asked about my background and then a lot of behavioral questions (biggest accomplishment, core values, leadership style, etc). Since they were not a staff member at UNC, I asked questions about what they currently do and what lead them to to that path."

"Mine was by an adcom member and she was very warm, friendly and was grinning all through the interview. Simple and straight interview questions. Kinda liked me talking as well I think. Then I asked about how long she has been there, what she does and why she’s doing the job. She was really ecstatic to talk about it and that was all really. It was a surreal and swell conversation."

No follow-up's. 1. why MBA, why KF, why now 2. three things you’ll want adcom to know about you 3. TMAT constructive criticism/feedback 4. TMAT challenge at work and lessons 5. How do you prioritise work and extra curricular 6. Attributes of ideal team 7. core values important to me and why 8. example of leadership experience that stands out 9. Leadership style. About 40 mins in total and i asked her one question"

"Done with my interview just now: Not a blind interview definitely. Directly started away with the questions: 1. When did you first hear about UNC and why have you kept your belief and interest in UNC KF despite getting rejected the last time? 2. Which leadership trait do you believe is necessary to succeed in life? 3. Mention one professional accomplishment you have that you achieved having worked upon your EQ. 4. How do you manage a team when there are people with different perspectives? 5. Talk about one core value in life that you preach and follow. 6. Any questions that you may have for me, do ask. (I am a reapplicant) It went on for 35 minutes. The interviewer was super friendly, maybe because they were asking some questions that you will not find commonly in any debrief. But I guess that’s how the reapplicants’ debrief goes."

What are your long- and short-term goals? TMAT when you had to face a challenging situation as a leader in your team? What questions do you have for me? Also, it was not blind they have read your application"
