Did any one experience the interview where the interviewer kept asking you questions (like...15 of them) until the time is up? I was only able to ask one or two questions at the end...although the conversation was great, I felt that I didn't get enough of my questions answered :cry:

Seems like this is common at Sloan interviews, and quite frankly is what they tell you to expect in the adcom blog / tips.

Don't take it negatively, many who reported the same last year got accepted!

Were all the behaviorals typical or was there something outside the norm? How did you handle those?

Did you try to zoom through it or were you cut off on your stories?

I think they are pretty typical, like those you saw when you google 'Sloan interview'.
I'm not sure what you mean zoom through or cut off? I was able to give her the details she wants for most of them besides one, where she asked if I can provide more details... that's probably the only one I stumbled a bit because she realllllly dig in and followed up with a much detailed questions.

The entire interview was fairly smooth and I was pretty comfortable, I was just shocked the amount of info she extracted during that 30 minutes... pretty amazed at how structured it was. The only reason I am concerned is I've heard some interviews are like 50/50 between their questions and your questions, so I was prepared for that.

Sounds like it went great, to be honest. Time to wait it out!

This is just my two cents, but here goes. The interview is first and foremost an opportunity for the adcom (via the interviewer) to ask you questions, not the other way around. This is how I approach ALL interviews (b-school or professional). Even in the questions I ask of the interviewer, I am trying to be strategic and ask questions that show I have done my research on the school/company, and potentially spark a good conversation. I am not really asking the actual questions I may have about a school or company, particularly if they might be construed as negative in any way.

The time to get your real questions answered about a school is after you've gotten in, as that is when you are in the drivers seat. I think schools realize this and provide ample opportunities to talk to students as you make your decision (welcome weekends etc.).

Haha thanks for the kind notes, only time can tell now, I'm just curious if there's anyone that experienced the same. :P

Hmm odd, my interview was just like 5-8 behavioral questions and my interviewer didn't really probe. Even with the questions I asked it was only like 20-25 minutes long.

I wonder how they decide how many questions to ask.
