"Pretty neat conversational Interview. Focussed on whether I was clear on the MBA/ Few tips that helped 1)Stay real and be yourself, I was literally conversationally at my best and told her that I was in the hills travelling. And we spoke about travels and sports for 10 / 30 mins 2)Be clear and specific on why mba and why kenan. I was clearly aiming for the school and the passion I addressed via networking, talking to profs, students and just being closer to the actual community. I literally opened all my cards pre during and post the interview slowly but steadily and built a conversational approach towards the app - much more personalised. 3)Have clarity on how you can contribute and give back to Kenan and why you should get there ahead of everybody else. It is energy and zeal once again and do focus on demonstrating that well. 4)Stay humble and have a leadership principle. focus on what works for you, in my case 8 odd years of work ex gave me some pov on what works as a leader personally and what i want to learn at kenan. Got my decision via call / phone today. Best thing that happened to me in years. The last best something similar was when I raised funding for my startup. Keep dreaming! You will make it. PS - I did not use a consultant and I think it helped me understand myself during the process better."

"The interview was with an AdCom member. It started couple minutes late (the interviewer mentioned that the previous interviewee was asking too many questions hence the delay). The interviewer clearly read my profile, and knew my background before the interview. The following questions were asked: 1) Describe your pre-MBA experience? Why MBA? What are your ST and LT Goals? (I was asked all three questions at once) 2) Can you give me three things you want the admission committee to remember about you? 3) What do you think sets you apart from other candidates? I gave an answer, and then she asked this again: What do you think sets you apart wrt soft skills? 4) Work instances for 1) Proudest initiative/ experience 2) Conflict (difference in opinion) 3) Feedback received 5) Tell me about a time when you did something (professionally) that changed the way you perceived things? 6) Do you have anything else you have prepared that you want to share with me? 7) Any questions for me? (I asked one question, but then the interviewer asked (and stressed) if I had any other question - I'm thinking she wanted me to have at least 2-3 questions ready to ask about that school. IDK.) On a whole the interview went for ~25 minutes. Wasn't my best interview, but I still gave satisfactory answers IMO. Fingers crossed! Good luck everyone! I hope this debrief helps you well! ~TheGuyDangerous"

Online Interviewed on: Nov 10 2021 Final Decision: Waitlisted with Interview

"Hi, I interviewed with Third-party Admission/may be - Named "Maria" Duration - 30 Min. She started with her own introduction about her profile and how long she has been with UNC ---etc. Below are the questions that were asked to me (no particular order)- 1)Introduce yourself briefly -3 min(under) 2)CV related one question 3)Give me an example where you were challenged in professional or personal? 4) 2 superpowers that you wish you had? 5) why MBA and why now? 6) short term goal? 7) long term goal? 8) Constructive feedback that I received nd how it has helped me to evolve now in my current role ? 9)3 words to describe me? 10) Odd ball question - instead of asking how my team members view me, she asked me what is that they think about me which is not true? gave me 30 sec to think and answer 11)what kind of team members do you like? give ex about their characteristics? So a whole bunch of questions within the span of 30 min... I feel I answered them nicely, tried to make it into a conversation rather than a pitch. One tip - those who may have TPI(third party) interviewered- try and make it as a conversation, they are very straightforward and are there to just throw questions,,, so make it engaging. Overall a nice exp and now just hope that I do make it :) Jai Shree Ram :) BR sk"

"Had a wonderful interview experience with a representative of UNC K-F (not Adcom, Alumni, or current student). Questions asked(paraphrased): a) Please go over the resume and background, you may take up to 3-4mins to cover all the points. b) How was your experience working in diverse cultures (had multiple international assignments), which one do you like and why? c) Do you like listening to podcasts? (This one was a bit strange as I had not mentioned podcasts anywhere in my application) d) If you were admitted to 2 schools, how would you pick one over the other? (I ended up telling why UNC at this stage which carried over to the next question) e) Why K-F? What values are important to you and why? f) If you had one superpower, what would it be? (Another strange question which caught me off-guard) g) Post-MBA goals? Immediate and long-term? What is your Plan-B? The interview took only around 15-16 minutes. I asked 2 questions which took another 2-3minutes. Total interview time was only ~20mins max."

"Interviewed with Monica Song from Ad Com. It was the most conversational and unconventional interview among all the interviews I have given. She started by explaining that KF used to conduct blind interviews but they have discontinued to do so. She has read all of my application and essay and should not bother to repeat the information already shared in essays. Q1. Why did you consider MBA? Q2. What are your plans immediately after MBA? Q3. Why did you chose Kenan-Flagler? At this point she started speaking very casually of what she understood of my responses and then she started talking about my essays and said she wanted to talk about my essay no 2 and 3 specifically. Q4. How did COVID affect your country and how do you think your govt reponded to it? general chit chat about covid after this and some conversations about my essay#2. Q5. Asked to know more about a personal story that I had mentioned in Essay#3... this also led to a conversation. At this pt, she thanked me for sharing my personal story and talked about how she sees so many good applications from Indian candidates and how they try match the right fit bw the college and the candidate. Q6. If your colleagues were to describe you in 3 words, what would they be? Q7. Do you take suggestions from your employees? After this she pointed out very empathically what were the strong points of my application and what were the few weak points. And again the thing about many Indian applicants and tough competition among Indians with similar profile. Q8. Do you have any questions for me? The interview went on for 40 min. I was so comfortable talking to the interviewer I dinn realize where all the time go."

"Was interviewed a second year student from KFBS. The vibe was very friendly. The interview was very conversational. It was made clear at the beginning that this wasn't supposed to be an interrogation. Interviewer had not read any other parts of my application and only had my resume for reference. Background : I worked for a marketing based startup for 2 years and then went on to start my own agency. Questions (Warning : paraphrasing):- 1. Tell me about your first job. 2. Follow-up question about the types of clients I worked with. 3. What did you gain from working at a start-up space? 4. How would your supervisor describe you? 5. Why MBA? 6. Why KFBS? 7. Short-term and Long-term goals. 8. Questions for the interviewer. There were a few minor follow-up questions based on my answers. Spent around 20 mins answering the questions posed by the interviewer, and then 10 mins discussing about my questions to the interviewer. Over-all, a great experience. The collaborative vibe radiates incessantly whenever you talk to any KF student / alum. Had a similar experience."

"I got interviewed by Monica Song. Kenan-Flagler doesn't share the interviewer details apriori. Our conversation started on time and lasted for about 45 minutes. It hovered around my experiences and went pretty much in depth. 1. We didn't start with TMAY. Instead, with "What is your post MBA goal"? 2. Why MBA? 3. Why Kenan? 4. Team leading experience? 5. Difficult leadership experience? 6. Some aspect you consider as a perspective-definer/life-changer. Something close to you - personal/professional? I cited my public policy experience. More follow-ups to go in-depth here. There were a couple of follow-up questions regarding what I would explain. It went like a decent conversation. We also discussed my questions towards the end in a decent depth. It was a good experience. Waiting to hear back now!"
