Mine were similarly basic questions, the only "twist" I had was something involving a current business development I was following which was simple enough. 10-15 minutes seems about right, I'd say close to half of the 25 minutes I spent with Paul were chatting about supply chain, rather than answering questions.

It was definitely the easiest interview of the 3 I've done so far. Mine was done prior to submitting my application while at an info session so I may be a little different, but I think they get a lot out of the powerpoint slide and video questions and don't need a whole lot more from the interview. (not just at MSU, videos have become pretty prevalent across schools) This makes the official interview more of just a formality in my opinion, since you've already recorded responses to several interview questions in the application.

Thanks a lot cxa0897. That's really reassuring.

Now, fingers crossed for the results.

yeah you have a point there, they get a lot from the two essays, but i remember Paul said several times that they do blind interviews (= they don't read applications before interviewing). if that's the case then i doubt that the essay content has anything to do with how the interview goes. (but who knows, really)

btw, could you share how was the tone of the interview? i know they said it is relaxed and conversational, but was Paul/they smiley friendly joky or did they keep a professional poker face all through the interview?

Paul had my resume when I interviewed, but not the app as I hadn't submitted anything at that point. If that is consistent across the board there could be some merit to your point about being blind.

Since I've had several PMs on this(this place really loves private messages for whatever reason....), there will be a separate email/call for the financing.
