"Doing my bit by sharing details of my interview since the debriefs here acted as an incredible resource to prepare for my interview. My interview was with an adcom member and lasted for about 45 minutes. It was a fast-paced interview with over 20 questions. The person was extremely friendly and made me feel comfortable. Mentioning the questions below (in no particular order): 1. Tell me about yourself 2. Why MBA now? 3. Goals 4. Why Fuqua? 5. Why is diversity important and experience of working in diverse teams 6. Leadership experience and what you learnt from it 7. Feedback you got at work 8. Biggest achievement (personal/professional) 9. Biggest strength + a weakness that you hope to address to Fuqua 10. Qualities you hope to imbibe as a leader 11. Team fuqua - what does it mean to you? 12. Decency Quotient - why is it important? Any examples? 13. How do you deal with a very quiet team member who is not contributing to discussion? 14. Qualities you look for in a team member 15. Anything else that you want to mention? 16. Question for her (I asked 3 about her time at the admissions team at Fuqua) 17. She also asked if Fuqua was my top choice and if yes why (after I mentioned that I have applied in Early Action) 18. If you graduate from Fuqua and look back a few years later, what would you see as your biggest contribution? I applied in Early Action so fingers crossed for my result! Will update here once done."

"Booked a slot in Open Interview Round and applied in R1. Interview matched with Alumni based in India. connected with him and scheduled Interview on mutually suitable day. Interview: Greeted each other and Interviewer introduced himself and walked me thru the process, Mentioned that he is comfortable even of the interview go beyond scheduled 45Mins time and no need to rush, also said he'll take notes in between so don't be distracted by it. 1) Walk me through your resume 2) Why second MBA? (He said this question is from him and not from Adcom) 3) Why Duke? have you done your research? 4) which other schools have you applied? 5) If not duke, what is the back up? 6) Long term career goals? (Knowing the followup, I added how duke can help) 7) Challenges as a manager? 8) the time you needed to give tough feedback to reportee? (By this time interviewer already understood that I'm well prepared with examples and said if you don't have an example for this it's fine) 9) Give a 1 min pitch to admissions (I was caught off guard, Didn't deliver my best as I though I already mentioned everything I wanted to tell him) 10) I think we covered everything, do you want to add something? (I mentioned we've covered everything not much I wanted to add) the interview part was done in around 30 mins. Then, He asked if I had any questions for him. I asked following questions: 1) How was his experience at Fuqua and how much impact did it had on his career? he gave a note of his experience, how it impacted his life choices and helped him getting oppurtunities even 15years later etc. I realized, he dropped out of his Indian MBA in middle to join Fuqua, he said for the similar reasons I've mentioned. 2) I asked him about his current stint with GoI and how they are trying to help farmers. then I gave him a walkthrough of what i'm doing in the feild in my part time. he had a few follow up questions on the topic and seemed intrigued. Overall, I felt I could have given a better framed answers at someplaces. but the the interview really picked up at the end, where we had good discussion. Fingers crossed."

"Interviewer: 2nd year student (Daytime MBA) Duration: roughly 40 minutes Summary: In my view, the interview was conversational. The interviewer was friendly, she took some notes while I was talking. Questions: 1) Tell me about yourself 2) Why MBA 3) Why Fuqua 4) Leadership style 5) Leadership experiences - she asked the specific example and how I encountered some challenges 6) Anything you want to share to the interviewer For question 6) -> If I may share some advice, it would be better for the interviewee to prepare all the important and relevant points that he/she wants to share although no questions triggered (I am sure you already made the script). Question 6) is the opportunity for interviewee to share those important points if you haven't shared in the previous questions. Just my two cents and hope for the best for everyone."
