"Interviewer - Someone associated with the organization Overall - The interviewer was friendly. She told me that she has 10 questions to ask me in 30 mins. So, I should not ask her too many questions and instead focus on answering more questions. She was not conversational but definitely expressive so it worked as a great directional cue. We shared a lot of laughs while speaking of her experiences towards the end of the interview. Questions: No tell me about yourself Why MBA? What are your goals? Why Flagler? Next all Behavioral: Tell me why you do and why you don't like working in a team? Tell me what makes a good team? TMA a recent challenging situation? What is your greatest professional achievement? Constructive feedback? What are your values? What do you want the Adcom to remember about you? (2-3 things) Ended with: Do you have any questions for me? (I still had time left at the end so I asked a bunch of questions and got her to share her experiences as well)"

"Someone from the Adcom interviewed me. She said she is specifically associated with Full Time MBA only. (Don't know why she said that) 1) Started with Why MBA and Why Kenan Flagler? (Told answer was well thought out) 2) Post this ALL questions were based on my Values, Kenan Flagler's Values, Leadership traits. 3) What are your values? Describe 2 instances of this value you demonstrated recently. (I had prepared for only one instance so the second instance I quoted was not convincing) 4) How would you motivate people not contributing in your team? 5) What makes you a collaborative leader (had used this term in previous answer). 6) asked any questions, I asked one question but she avoided answering it/deflected it. Overall 30 mins, there were no interruptions but seemed to ask lot of behavioral instances or demonstrated values in current job (I don't remember 1-2 of them)."

"My interview was with an external interviewer, but still very friendly and conversational. My questions: 1. Why MBA/Why UNC 2. What qualities will you bring to the MBA class 3. What are the values you live by that are most important to you 4. Biggest personal or professional accomplishment 5. What are you most looking forward to learning at UNC Basic follow up questions for some answers, but generally just spoke about his own experiences which related to mine. Had 10 minutes left for questions after. Almost felt like a chat with someone I was meeting casually for the first time"

Waitlisted with Interview
"I just had my UNC KF's AdCom interview. The interviewer (Jean Elia) was a very senior representative of AdCom itself. She's worked at Kenan for 25 years (with 10 years in the Dean's Office and for some duration as the Chief Education Officer as well) & was the initiator of the Online MBA program at Kenan back in the day. She mentioned that she retired 3-years ago and now participates in these Admissions Interviews in a way to give back to the school and community in whatever way possible. The entire conversation was very formal throughout the interview questions and then, in the end, it switched to completely informal. She had a set of questions that she asked in order - 1. Why an MBA at this point in your career? What are your short-term goals? 2. Why Kenan Flagler is the right place for you to get an MBA? 3. What makes you unique or different than your peers? 4. How would your manager describe you? 5. What was a recent difficult situation you were in? How did you manage to go past it? 6. What do you think is the difference between a Leader and a Manager? 7. What motivates you? 8. What does leadership mean to you and what's your leadership style? 9. What two or three things beyond your application would you want the Admissions Committee to remember about you? 10. Any questions for her? She was very warm and considerate. She took her time to listen to and understand each word of my answer and prompted me to repeat wherever required (because of intermediate network issues as Kenan has its own Interview portal instead of Zoom or Google Meet). At the end, she mentioned that she loved talking to me and that it was a great conversation!"

"Very similar to some of the other people in this chat’s experience. It was with a 3rd party, they were very engaged. Asked about my background and then a lot of behavioral questions (biggest accomplishment, core values, leadership style, etc). Since they were not a staff member at UNC, I asked questions about what they currently do and what lead them to to that path."

"Mine was by an adcom member and she was very warm, friendly and was grinning all through the interview. Simple and straight interview questions. Kinda liked me talking as well I think. Then I asked about how long she has been there, what she does and why she’s doing the job. She was really ecstatic to talk about it and that was all really. It was a surreal and swell conversation."

How do you prioritise work and extra curricular 6. Attributes of ideal team 7. core values important to me and why 8. example of leadership experience that stands out 9. Leadership style.

"Done with my interview just now: Not a blind interview definitely. Directly started away with the questions: 1. When did you first hear about UNC and why have you kept your belief and interest in UNC KF despite getting rejected the last time? 2. Which leadership trait do you believe is necessary to succeed in life? 3. Mention one professional accomplishment you have that you achieved having worked upon your EQ. 4. How do you manage a team when there are people with different perspectives? 5. Talk about one core value in life that you preach and follow. 6. Any questions that you may have for me, do ask. (I am a reapplicant) It went on for 35 minutes. The interviewer was super friendly, maybe because they were asking some questions that you will not find commonly in any debrief. But I guess that’s how the reapplicants’ debrief goes."

"Hello everyone, Done with my interview. Was a UNC undergrad alum. Pretty conversational. Questions were as follows: Why did you choose your university? Why an MBA now? Why UNC? What are your long- and short-term goals? TMAT when you had to face a challenging situation as a leader in your team? What questions do you have for me? Also, it was not blind they have read your application"
