Any group created for Degroote on facebook

Hi goldfinchmonster,

In my mail nothing like this mention that you have to complete video essay in so and so date. I think it is better to complete ASAP so that u have maximum chance to get admission and scholarship.

Regards,
Jay

Hi manishbhusal and Vijay

Yes, I agree with Vijay, I just completed the video interview questions. 4 generic questions about my experiences and what I learnt from them. 3 required video answers and 1 was written.
One tip- please time yourself, I ran out of time for 3 questions. :(

Hi Rohit, I wanted to know whether these were the questions you faced in your interview as Jay did.

1) share your past exp regarding team motivation
2) Any charity work
3) any critical project you handle.

This will give us a idea if the questions are the same or are they customized according to one's profile..?
Thanks in advance for helping out Rohit...

Completed my video essays yesterday.
the questions were
1)explain a situation where you voluntarily helped to complete a team task/project and completed it and what did you achieve out of it
2)did u ever face an unexpected situation and how did u handle it.
3) similar to above two questions i did not remember the question actually.

written essay: how do u prioritize your tasks and how do u manage your time.

timing is very important here we will be given only 90 seconds and our answers should be restricted within that time and we should be clear on what we want to say.

Hello folks

I got admitted to DeGroote - FT MBA program :)

The school does mention that the avg sal = 68K. But does anyone have a function-wise breakup? What % are placed into consulting, IB, etc?
The class size seems to be ~ 100 (FT)

Hi,

once you complete video interview and they have received all documents,you can expect reply within two weeks. The fact that 'you can expect reply within two weeks' has been mentioned in website also.

Manish

Hi,

I have a doubt.

The offer is conditional with following condition "Receipt of an official transcript from Sastra University and receipt of official proof of
graduation. To be cleared by June 30, 2016." so my doubt was - can i start applying for student permit with conditional offer or do i need to first submit documents from university,get final offer and then apply for student permit ?

Regards
Manish

Hi all,

Gave my interview 4 days back. Questions were bit tricky, compels you to think quick. Went just fine overall and could hve been better. I think these guys are not repeating questions much as I didnt get any of the ones shared here.
