Off Campus with Adcom Interviewed on: Feb 20 2019 Final Decision: Admitted

"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!"

Off Campus with Adcom Interviewed on: Feb 14 2019 Final Decision: Admitted

"Overall the interview went very well. Felt like a conversation and not a constant Q&A. All her questions came from my responses and stayed with my resume as the backbone. 1. Walk me through your Resume? What leadership experiences did you have? 2. What was your biggest life lesson that you learned? 3. You had a lot of leadership experience, what type of leader are you? 4. What are your ST/LT Goals? 5. What are you hoping to gain from an MBA? 6. If you were not in a leadership role and was only a team member, how would you contribute? 7. Explain to me your background undergraduate degree (I had a science degree) 8. What makes you want to pursue MBA or move into business? 9. Why MBA to do your dreams/Why now? 10. Why UNC? (speak specifically about the universities Core Values) 11. What questions do you have for me? (talked about the STAR program and DBI program) Currently waiting on a decision, will update soon."

"Skype interview: Overall, very conversational with no out-of-the-ordinary questions. If I recall correctly, I was asked: 1. Current job description 2. Why MBA? 3. Why Kenan-Flagler? 4. What would your supervisor say is your best/worst quality? 5. Proudest accomplishment Probably missing some questions but like I mentioned, it was very conversational so it's difficult to enumerate exact questions."

On Campus Interviewed on: Jan 07 2019 Final Decision: Matriculating

"I interviewed with a member of the admissions committee at Chapel-Hill. I had a really pleasant day, since engaging with office staff to my interview. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. My interview lasted about 30 minutes and was very behavioral in nature but conversational. Some of the questions I remember 1. Walk me through your resume 2. Why an MBA? Why now? 3. Why UNC? 4. How will you contribute to the community? 5. ST/LT goals? 6. Time where you did not get along with a team? 7. any questions? Like I said, my interviewer was very nice and they just want to see your fit with UNC. You still need to prepare and have succinct answers."

"Done with the interview. The interviewer was very calming and made the session very interactive. Again, more of a discussion for knowing the candidate better, rather than an intense interview. The interviewer introduced herself and told me about the interview format that she would follow. She went on to speak about her career progression and then switched over to the interview. She started off with why did I choose the particular concentration for my undergrad? Then she asked me about my internships and jobs, and then about my current job profile. Thereafter, she asked me a couple of behavioural questions on team experiences, about a time when I did not get a desired output though I put in efforts, what in my opinion is the best leadership style, and what qualities do I think the team members must have? She then asked the usual why MBA, what short term goals and why, why Kenan-Flagler etc. questions. Finally, she asked if I had any questions for her. Overall, it was a wonderful interview: very conversational and very easy going. The interview lasted for a little over 30 mins."

Skype Interviewed on: Nov 08 2017 Final Decision: Waitlisted with Interview

"I had my UNC interview with an adcom member over Skype on 6th Nov (10:45 AM EST). I do agree with others - no odd/hardball questions. My interview was very conversational and lasted 35-40 minutes. I'm a bit jealous seeing abhimahna 's question list! :P I got asked almost nothing!! My questions were 1) Walk me through your resume & a follow up conversation including why an MBA now (NOT why MBA) - lasted 15 mins 2) Do you have any questions for me - lasted ~8 mins 3) If I were to call up your supervisor, what would be the 2 words he would use to describe you. A follow conversation with anecdotes on why did I pick those 2 words - lasted a bit over 10 mins During the last few mins, she asked if there was something more that you wanted the admissions committee to know. I was like - "yeah, everything is remaining!!" :) So I told her that I've seriously thought about my goals, strengths/weaknesses and the fit with UNC. Since we were running out of time, I asked her pick between - Why MBA / ST LT goals/ strengths weaknesses leadership traits/ Why Kenan Flagler. She picked "Why Kenan Flagler". We talked about that, maximum for 4 mins, before we disconnected. It think it went okay. I'm not sure if I could have timed it better; she was really interested in the career sections of my CV and our entire conversation was based on that. Don't worry about the anxiety guys, the adcoms are really nice and they WILL make you feel comfortable. Also, in 40 mins I was asked almost 0 standard questions. So, apart from the standard ST LT goals and Why questions, it would help if you have some 3 or 4 anecdotes pertaining to your CV. And it would be a bonus if those anecdotes can bring out some good behavioural traits! :D All the very best!!"

On Campus Interviewed on: Nov 02 2017 Final Decision: Interviewed

"I had an interview yesterday with someone from the Admissions Team. It was the last day of open interviews and it was blind so I didn't know I would be interviewing with him and he only had my resume. It was very conversational and the first 10 minutes were just questions about my background, motivations for my college major, why I ended up in education. After the first maybe ten minutes he eased into Why Flagler, Why MBA, short & long term goals, the interesting thing was that he didn't necessarily directly ask the questions in the way you'd expect which made it comfortable. It felt very natural and low pressure. My advice would be to have rock solid answers for Why Flagler, Why MBA and know your resume and motivations for career pivots like the back of your hand. Also have great questions about specific things you're interested in, and not anything you can find on the website. If you've spoken to current students, be sure to mention that while answering/asking questions as it shows you've been proactive in finding out more about the school and what you're interested in. Be energetic and smile! Good luck. Let me know if you have additional questions."

"Just finished my interview with Mr. Philippe Barr. Lasted 22 mins. Was conversational. I would say it went pretty well. Questions: 1. Why MBA? Why now? 2. Why KF? 3. Experience handling a team and any problems you faced? 4. How will you seek information for a task your academic advisor at KF gives you in order to complete? 5. How will you involve in KF outside of class? 6. What accomplishment are you most proud of? 7. Questions? He told that his email is available for his Skype profile in case I have more questions. But I could not find it there. Anybody have his email id? Could you please help? I would like to send him a thank you note."

"I just had my Skype interview (it was blind with an adcom member). It lasted for 37 mins (these interviews are intended to last around 30 mins, so I must have really talked for too long or gotten into too much detail. I had about 5 mins to ask questions). Questions were similar to the ones posted above. The only thing is that I didnt walk her through my resume, she guided me towards the areas/bullet points where she wanted to have a clarification or a more thorough answer. My overall impression was neutral. They want to know the applicant personally and make sure that s/he would be a fit, but I don't think there was a specially strong connection between my interviewer and me. Anyways, I think the interview went well, although I might have extended too much on certain answers and there were a couple of short communication glitches (another reason why it lasted longer than usual). BTW, as many people mentioned last year, they did explain the admissions process (there is 1 adcom member that reviews the online application, your interviewer assesses the interview and then a third adcom member reviews the whole application -online+interview-). Best of luck to the rest of you with your applications/interviews!"

Off Campus with Adcom Interviewed on: Feb 10 2016 Final Decision: Interviewed

"Round 3 applicant. Just got done with a F2F interview with Ms. Brittany Craig at Taj Lands End, Mumbai. It went pretty well and was the most conversational interview I've ever attended. It was very different from the rest of the interviews I've given, in the sense that it felt very much like a free flowing conversation centred around my resume. There were no behavioural questions and there was no "Walk me through..." question. I'm listing the questions that I remember. *Brittany asked me to talk about my undergraduate school and my experience. *She then moved onto the first company I worked for and asked me what was the best project I worked in and what it taught me. *Then she asked me if I had a time machine, what is one thing I would go back and tell myself at the start of my working career *She asked me what are few qualities in me that, I think, my recommenders would have written about. *My ST and LT goals. *Then we moved onto my current work ex and there were a few back and forth questions related to that (since I run a business she wanted to understand how I would manage it once I go for my MBA, how many people report to me, who has been a great influence on my working style etc.) *Why Kenan Flagler? *Questions for her. She was on a tight schedule so each interview was strictly 30 mins long. Mine was 25 mins long with the last 5 mins reserved for my questions. It was a really good experience for me and if you know what you're about it should be easy. Hoping to crack this great school."
