Skype Interviewed on: May 07 2019 Final Decision: Admitted

"Applied on Jan 30th 2019 in Round 2. Kept updating the Admission committee about my recent achievements and accomplishments. Got email on 2nd May 2019 that I have been shortlisted for the interview. My interview was scheduled on 7th May 2019. It started 1 Hour early with my consent, since I was online on skype rehearsing my answers and checking the audio. She told me that the interview will last for 30 mins and after that I could ask questions if I wanted to. It more of a interaction rather than an interview. I was asked very basic questions like: 1. Tell me about your job, roles and responsibilities. 2. Follow-up questions on the company where I currently work. 3. Tell me about your 'typical' day at work. (I heard it 'difficult' day at work, she corrected me in between my answer) 4. Then, she asked about what my 'difficult' day at the office would be? 5. Career goals, 10 year plan, Long term career goals. 6. Plan B, if the above plan failed. 7. Volunteering Experience and other stuff on the Resume. 8. A situation based question where she asked me what would I do if one of my team member was not pulling up with rest. 9. Then, If I had anything else to share or questions for her? The interview lasted 50 mins. My advice to the prospective candidates would be to cheer up, show a happy face. Be very clear with your career goals, companies you want to work for, positions, your long term vision, and be ready to be asked questions on that. They might check your confidence in between the interview, so make valid points and present verified data. McGill Adcom's are one of the most humble and supporting individuals. At the end of interview we discussed French movies on Netflix and culture at Montreal. She told me that I will hear from one of the Admission committee member within 2 weeks. I received offer for admission 2 days later with scholarship. Je vous remercie Best of Luck!"

On Campus Interviewed on: Dec 17 2018 Final Decision: Admitted

"Applied on Oct 30th, got news on Nov 16th that I will have interview, but I need to travel outside of Canada for 3 weeks, so I asked to postpone. Finally had my interview on Dec 17th on campus since I live here. Very basic questions: 1. Tell me something you do outside of work? 2. What is your post MBA goal? Do you have plan B? 3. Why McGill? Why MBA? 4. Some details about my project management work experience 5. How did you find your 1st job? 6. What do you like most about your job? 7. What do you like least about your job? 8. Why did you change your job? What are you looking for each time when you change a job? 9. A scenario question, you have interview, networking and group project, how do you prioritize them? 10. How did you describe yourself in three words? why? 11. Do you have anything else you want to share with admission committee? 12. Do you have question for me? The interview last around 45 mins I think. It is like any normal interview, not really difficult. Interviewer is very nice, so nothing to stress. She promised to give an answer by Dec 21st since this is last working day of 2018. And yeah, she did give me the answer. Remember you write a thank you letter after the interview. Nothing fancy to write, just offer your appreciation for his/her time. Good luck to all."
