Skype Interviewed on: Feb 24 2020 Final Decision: Interviewed

"I had a Skype interview with Grace Kim on 24th Feb'20 and it lasted about 30 mins. Most of the questions that she asked me were either based on my resume or my previous answers. The questions that I was asked were on the lines of: 1. Why did you recently switch job/role? How has the experience at the new firm been? 2. Why do you want to do an MBA? Why right now, considering you just switched jobs? 3. What are your goals? Do you have any companies in mind where you would like to work? 4. What do you hope to gain from an MBA? What are some of the things that you would like to work on while here? 5. Why do you want to be at Marshall? What do you expect from the community here and how do you see yourself fit here? 6. Tell me about a time when you were really challenged. What did you do? What did you learn from it? 7. Tell me about an experience working in a team. What makes it so memorable? 8. How do you work on conflicts in the team? 9. What are your teammates most likely to say about you and your management style? 10. Tell me about one of your most memorable professional experiences. 11. Tell me about a misconception that people have about you. 12. What do you do for fun? 13. Have you had the opportunity to connect to anyone at Marshall? 14. Do you have any questions for me? I hope this helps! I know it might seem like a lot of questions, but the interview was so conversational, and my interviewer was so welcoming and attentive, that I thoroughly enjoyed talking to her and didn't even realize how fast time flew. Good luck with the interviews guys! :)""

Debrief posted on  Feb 24 2020 [#permalink] Tepper, Full Time MBA
Skype Interviewed on: Feb 19 2020 Final Decision: Interviewed

"I had my interview with Colleen Poulsen on 19th Feb. I wanted to pick the on-campus option, but due to work deadlines, I had to pick skype. The interview got off to a bad start as the technology didn't work and I lost the first 10 minutes of the 30 mins interview. Eventually, I got a call on my cell and the interview became a phone call. Pro tip: For online video, it's better to have your cell nearby as if technology fails, at least there is a backup. I kept my phone on silent and missed her call, thus losing another 2 mins. Anyway, once the interview started, I tried to stay calm and just answered whatever questions she asked. Below are the questions she asked: 1. Walk me through your profile. 2. What are your short term goals? 3. Why tepper? 4. Tell me about a time when you worked in a multicultural environment 5. Successful as a leader. 6. Failed as a leader 7. What would you like the admissions team to know? I think there were a couple of more questions which I am forgetting right now. Overall, I tried to treat it as a conversation and asked her about her experience throughout. Since she is from Pittsburg, I asked her about the city and her experience in the admissions. Although I felt rushed with my answers, I think I was able to get most of my stories across. Good luck to anyone reading this!"

Tell me more about your journey and how you arrived where you are today. 2. Why do you want to do an MBA now? 3. On what parameters did you decide which schools to apply to? And which schools have you applied to? 4. Did you select Owen on these parameters or something more? 5. Which is the one skill that you want to improve while at Owen? What is your plan for it? 6.

Off Campus with Alumni Interviewed on: Feb 18 2020 Final Decision: Interviewed

"My interview was pretty laid back and lasted just under 40mins. We met at a coffee shop. 1. Tell me about yourself 2. Why Kellogg? 3. ST/LT goals 4. What company do you hope to work for? 5. What three words would a colleague use to describe you? 6. Follow up on examples for the above. 7. Walk me through a challenge that you have come across when working on a team? (Looking back, I think I answered with a personal challenge vs team-based, ugh). 8. Questions for me? Overall, I think it went well, but I honestly can't tell. I only had the opportunity to ask a few questions, because she had to run to work. I do wish that I had an opportunity to ask more questions."

On Campus Interviewed on: Feb 18 2020 Final Decision: Interviewed

"I normally wouldn't post about this but I had a pretty negative experience during my Fuqua interview. My student interviewer and I just did not click from the start. He grilled me on every little thing I said, and it felt like all my answers had a counterattack, vs just a follow up question. It truly made me feel uncomfortable. He also asked some very odd and specific questions, like how I would "speak to" international students on my learning team. It left a really bad taste in my mouth and to be quite honest I don't think I'm considering Fuqua anymore."

Debrief posted on  Feb 17 2020 [#permalink] Booth, Full Time MBA
Off Campus with Alumni Interviewed on: Feb 15 2020 Final Decision: Interviewed

"My interview was at a coffee shop on a Saturday. My interviewer emailed to say that I did not need to wear formals and should wear whatever I was comfortable in. So the setting was casual and comfortable. Even so, I was a little apprehensive going in because the interviewer was from a completely different industry (I am from manufacturing and he was from finance/tech). Began with introductions. He came across as an a very laid back guy. He explained that the school expects specific answers to a lot of questions, so the interview would have to be structured, but that we could have a casual chat afterwards. Even so, the interview was fairly conversational and he gave me a lot of leeway to answer naturally. Questions began with Tell me about yourself, Goals, Why MBA, Why Booth, and then moved on to behavioural questions. He occasionally interjected with his own views. The difference in our backgrounds turned out to be more of a catalyst, as he seemed genuinely interested in some of the industry specific examples I quoted. Also asked - how will you contribute to the class? Think of a time when you failed? At one point, my interviewer indicated that I should be less general and more specific answering some of the questions. So my advice to anyone going for an interview would be to prepare good examples that show your a. strengths, b. weaknesses, c. ability to collaborate with others. You can be asked about these in a variety of ways; just be sure to introspect in advance and come up with multiple examples, as it is difficult to think of examples on the spot. Also be sure to specify what you like about Booth specifically in relation to your goals, and how you learnt about it. This includes names of students/ alumni you spoke to, professors whose classes you plan to take, and any features of the program you liked. After the interview, I asked him about his work trajectory. I don't think I asked him extensively about Booth, but rather his experience after, and how his MBA had helped him. At the end, the interviewer also asked what schools I had applied to. He also gave me some genuine advice on the way forward, specific to my goals. Overall, I'd say that the interview was meant to (1) ascertain your overall experience, (2) fit with/ interest in the school, (3) humility and ability to be a productive member of the class. Best advice I can give is to be well prepared, but relaxed. Good luck."

On Campus Interviewed on: Feb 15 2020 Final Decision: Interviewed

"Has anyone had an interview where you weren't asked behavioral questions? The lack of behavioral questions has me very nervous. Is this an automatic ding? Questions: Tell me about yourself? Why an MBA? What are your 3 strongest qualities? What are you working on? How do you want to impact the Fuqua community? What does team Fuqua mean to you? I feel as if I was talking a bit too much and then there were no behavioral questions which makes me super nervous. What do you think?"

"I had my interview on campus with an MBA2 on Feb 10, 2020. It was a blind interview. It lasted a little over 35 minutes. I was asked the following questions: 1) Tell me about yourself and why you need an MBA. (This was really more like 3 questions: walk through resume, short-term goals, and why MBA? So, this ended up taking about 10 minutes as my response turned into conversation.) 2) Why Ross? (Took about 5 mins.) *At this point, the interviewer said he would ask exactly 4 behavioral questions. 3) Tell me about a time when you were given a project that you had no prior knowledge of. 4) Tell me about a time you made a mistake. 5) Tell me about a time you coached or mentored someone. 6) Tell me about a time you received difficult feedback. At this point, we had 13 minutes left out of the scheduled 40 minutes. The interviewer asked if I had any questions. I asked a couple of questions and we conversed for about 10 minutes and ended the interview. The interviewer was taking a lot of notes throughout but was definitely listening well and made sure to keep the interview conversational. Good luck!"
