"I interviewed with Adcom Director. Great guy I must say. Very conversational and light toned conversation. Conversation started with small talk regarding the background music and then we jumped into the interview. 1) Why mba and why now? 2) Follow ups 3) What are the skills that you have gained? 4) Why Kelley (By this time I told how my elder sibling has just graduated from the Kelley FT MBA). So now he knew I know the program inside out and 1-2 follow ups around that. Now no more questions on school research cause he knew. 5) Why this industry? What inspired me? 6) Strength and weaknesses 7) Any apprehension about mba? 8) What motivates you? 9) Follow up around my leadership examples 10) Why US? 11) Follow up around my other skill examples and behavioral questions on that. 12) Questions from him And that was it. Good experience. They are very nice and conversational. No stress testing so relax."

On Campus Interviewed on: Jan 09 2016 Final Decision: Admitted

"I visited Kelley more than one time, and I have nothing but good things to say about it. The students, alumni and faculty were great, very welcoming and knowledgeable. In fact they made you feel like you were part of the program already. My interview was self initiated, and the visit started with a dinner the night before with two second year students, at a nice Italian restaurant in downtown Bloomington. They were very open and transparent about the school, they made sure to let me know they weren't part of the admissions team and that could ask any "tough" questions. The day of the interview I attended a class in Marketing Law, the professor and students were very engaging. Then lunch with admissions and other current students, Interview with current student, and finally some meetings that I arranged with some faculty and students. My interviewers, I would say was the exception to all the welcoming I experienced. He showed something like 15min late, and had quite an attitude. I felt as he was there by obligation and had no interest in learning about me. He went through the motions of the scripted interview he had and that was it. I actually cross passed with him after an hour or so, and didn't acknowledge at all when I greeted him. My interview obviously went well enough, as I got admitted to the program. I want to say that he probably was the exception to the rule. The school in general was very welcoming, the people very humble, and helpful. I would recommend Kelley to anyone."
