"It was a very nice experience. The interviewer was very friendly, and the interview was very conversational. It lasted roughly 50 minutes. These were the questions that were asked: - Introduction - What kind of team do you work with best? What kind of roles do you shine the most? - Long Term Goals & Short Term Goals? - Why MBA? Why Booth? Why now? - A person whom you have met who has broadened your horizon? - How do you juggle multiple priorities? - Anything you wanna tell us which any of the questions couldn’t cover? - Any questions for me? The only advice I can give to future applicants is to think of it as more of a conversation rather than an interview. Don't overprepare - as that might make you robotic, instead think of it like talking to a friend who is curious about why you are doing an MBA or what are your plans. You know your life, you can answer any question that will be asked. Make it like a conversation and you will do just fine. That's what I did and my interview was better than I could have ever imagined. All the best, y'all! :)"

"Interviewer - Someone associated with the organization Overall - The interviewer was friendly. She told me that she has 10 questions to ask me in 30 mins. So, I should not ask her too many questions and instead focus on answering more questions. She was not conversational but definitely expressive so it worked as a great directional cue. We shared a lot of laughs while speaking of her experiences towards the end of the interview. Questions: No tell me about yourself Why MBA? What are your goals? Why Flagler? Next all Behavioral: Tell me why you do and why you don't like working in a team? Tell me what makes a good team? TMA a recent challenging situation? What is your greatest professional achievement? Constructive feedback? What are your values? What do you want the Adcom to remember about you? (2-3 things) Ended with: Do you have any questions for me? (I still had time left at the end so I asked a bunch of questions and got her to share her experiences as well)"

"Interviewer was 2nd year student Friendly interview style, 2 follow up questions She was reading questions out of her screen. Questions themselves were very long and descriptive.

"Lovely chat with an alumnus based in the US. We had 45 minutes booked for the interview but we were done in 35. I had already asked a few additional questions but couldn't think of anything else to extend the time plus it felt like the conversation had reached a natural conclusion. Questions: - Tell me about yourself, walk me through your resume - Why an MBA and why Haas specifically? - What are your short and long term goals? - What three words would people on your team use to describe you? Would your friends also use those same three words/what words would your friends use? - Tell me about a time you fostered DEI in your professional/personal life Follow-up: what does the non-profit you mentioned really do? - Tell me about a time when you had to resolve a conflict within a cross-disciplinary team - Tell me about a time when you had to reach consensus within your team (not cross-disciplinary) - Tell me about a time when a decision you made (as a leader? can't remember) failed and how you handled it Follow-up: what convinced you to change your decision once you decided to? - Tell me about a time when you had to question the status quo/make a decision that went against the norm - Is there anything else you would like to tell me about yourself that we haven't talked about yet? - Do you have any questions for me? Lots of follow-up questions on each of these but I can't really remember them except that they were natural next questions to the answers I had already given. You need to be specific about your motivations for doing things. Do your research on the school! The interviewer seemed pleased when I dropped some niche facts I had picked up from conversations with current students. I think it went okay but you never know how these things end up"

"I had my PGP admissions interview for ISB. It was conducted by 3 ISB alumni - Vismay, Harmanjit Singh, and Diksha Sonal. They directly jumped into professional and volunteering experiences. These questions were asked - 1. In your essay, you mentioned Product Management as your future career goal. Why are you pursuing Product Management? 2. Why ISB? How does a PGP from ISB fit into your career goals? 3. You have been with the Entrepreneurship Cell, come from a business background, and have been in your professional position for nearly 5 years, spending thousands of hours. By now, you would have already ⁠become an expert in product management. Why do you still want to pursue a post-graduate program? 4. Tell us about a time when you took a stand for your teammate or your family member. 5. Then they asked a question about one of the social volunteering experiences, asking about areas and ways of improvement for some current challenges. 6. What will you contribute to ISB and its cohort? Then, they abruptly ended the interview without allowing me to ask any questions. This was a very different interview experience as compared to the MBA admissions interviews that I have given so far for US B-Schools. ISB interview panel had read all of my application material - Resume, Essays, L.O.R. and had pre-prepared questions. Interview panels were also decided based on post-MBA career goals. 2 out of my 3 interviewers were from the Product Management line of work and had over 10 years of professional experience post graduating from ISB. The interview lasted for less than half an hour and felt more like one-way questioning (from their side) and me trying to justify every single point multiple times."

"Profile brief - GMAT 680, SWE with 2.5 yrs exp, bachelors from tier 2 Interview was very conversational and the interviewers were warm people who ensured I was comfortable. Except the questions that are marked with *, the rest are follow up questions based on what I had told until that point. interview lasted for 40 minutes, though it was scheduled for 30 minutes. *Tell me about yourself Tell us more about the consulting workshop you participated. Don't you think product management is a better suited post MBA goal for you given your technical background? *Tell us about a time at work where you handled a conflict *Tell us about the Young Leaders Program that you were a part of in your organization You want to move out of SWE and given that you have this much validation from within the organization, don't you think you can use that to pivot to a business role? (in other words - Why MBA) What will you contribute to ISB and it's cohort? Your workex is 2.5 yrs and ISB cohort average workex is 4.5 years. Do you think you will be able to fit in ? Given your profile, age and the fact that you are an engineer who is good with math, so CAT won't be an issue for you, thus aren't IIMs a more suitable B-school for you than ISB? Why ISB? Why not IIMs? *tell us about a time where you worked under extreme pressure, and how you handled it Any questions for us? All the best. just be ultra thorough with your application and about yourself - and you must be good to go!"

"Had my interview in person with the head of the Africa Initiative. Was very much a conversation in terms of the flow but she asked very deliberate questions that she was taking detailed notes for including: -you've indicated you're interested in healthcare in your experience and your goals. Can you tell me about what you think are some solutions to the system you currently see in your region? (basically testing my interest in the topic outside of just what I want to do as a job) -you've indicated your goals but what's the transition plan between your first job post MBA and your long term goals? -what is your plan B in terms of roles or geographic options? -how do you see your year at Oxford panning out (ie what will your academic curriculum and social interactions be given the Oxford overall opportunities available)? What will your involvement be? -which students have you interacted with? -how would you interact with students in your group if, for example, they aren't pulling their weight? She often gave her own inputs after my answers which made it feel like a good conversation but she was definitely checking certain elements against a framework of sorts. She never tested me directly but was looking for signs that I was specifically interested in Oxford and that I had put in effort to thinking about life on campus."
