All-right guys! hm2009 and Jivana I think all three of us are prepping for the same school so lets see if we can get a current student / alumnae to help with a mock interview with the three of us. If not, we can do a run with the three of us. I am up for it this week as well - after 8PM EST is fine. We can use the skype accounts set up by GMATclub and just agree on a date and time.


Great. I already PMed Jivana. We can do two separate interviews to get more practice/exposure. I am free this Friday->onwards (anytime after 7PM EST). I'll PM you my email ID.

I am happy to do it separately, though if we get someone with ties to the school to help, I think it would be valuable - I wouldn't mind chatting in a group if that allows us to get their perspective.

Sounds like a plan. I do have friends at W but none available for mock interviews. I just got some perspectives on where to interview and, more importantly, why (or why not). Listing them here (these opinions are from students @W currently involved in the admissions committee):

On-Campus student
pro: they ask standard questions, are well-prepared by the AdCom to assess your profile, almost always friendly and nice.
con: Some may be younger and lack maturity to assess complex candidate profiles. Often have preconceived notions about areas other than theirs.

HUB/On-Campus AdCom
pro: same as for on-campus students.
con: difficult to engage in a "chat" -- have an internal agenda (obviously); may not be best for every candidate, but may be good for the super-eloquent public-speaker consultant sort. Hard to leave a memorable impression in 30minutes.

Alumni
pro: can do background research on them and find common ground prior to interview. You may get to pick a venue (pick a place you can use to break ice, etc); usually super friendly and just want to talk. Can really fly if you hit it off well.
con: May have passed out too long ago (no info on school, etc). Sometimes distracted, sometimes difficult -- basically a mixed bag.

I am going for an alumni interview because I found a guy working in a similar field and linkedin recommendations say he is super nice, humble and puts you at ease.

Hi guys,
no reply from alums yet, so I suggest we just do a group with the five of us (GoBruins and BSbound) included. 5 is the max I think would work.

Perfect. MBAGirl2010, would you like to take the lead in arranging the fine details? I am free Friday post 7PM-EST. Can do skype or gtalk. My email is with MBAGirl2010 already, so she'd know how to contact me.

hm2009, Jivana, GoBruins, and BSbound are you up for Friday 10PM EST?

I have set up with 5 gmatclub accounts at skype. So each one of us will borrow one just for this chat appointment. For ease - here is a distribution:

MBAgirl - gmatclub1
hm2009 - gmatclub2
Jivana - gmatclub3
GoBruins -gmatclub4
and BSbound - gmatclub5

The password for each account is gmat700 .

Here are the rules:
1. Please, be respectful of everyone's time - once we agree when we'll meet, let us know in advance via the forum if you think you might not be able to make it - just so we don't waste time waiting.
2. Once we agree to a time for each of the participants, everyone commits to stay till the end, so the rest can benefit from you input even if you end up being the first to get your interview done.
3. What goes on in the group interview stays in the group interview - by joining this we agree to respect each-other's privacy.

The rest we'll figure out as we go. If we find out the group is too big, we can always split in two smaller groups, till we find the right team size for this kind of exercise.

Do you guys want to distribute resumes in advance or just go with a "walk me through your resume" question in the beginning?

Thanks for arranging this. I think most interviewers still ask the "Walk me through your resume" question as it's usually a good indication of concise delivery. I'd say we should give out our resumes to everyone else. Question is how?

30 minutes each? We could ask questions round-robin, if that works.

edit: I confirm for 10PM EST Friday night.

Friday at 10pst EST works for me as well.

Given the anonymity of this process, I'm sensitive to the resume/personal email thing. Let me know if anyone can come up with an impartial way of distributing the resumes.

For resumes, I would say let's distribute it but with all the personal info. stripped off. If some personal information still gets through, I would go with the assumption that anything that's said on the call would stay within that group.

10PM EST Friday, confirmed for me as well.

Thanks!

You'd need to remove your name/phone-no/email from your resume and upload it somewhere. Once you've done that, just PM all of us with the link? For identification, just put your GMATClub-handle on top to replace your name, etc. How does that sound?

It's pretty straight forward, folks.

I've sent you my edited resume (PDF), and will wait for each one of you to send theirs before the interview.
