Skype Interviewed on: Feb 18 2020 Final Decision: Interviewed

"I had an online interview with Michael Mandrioli on 18th Feb'20 and it lasted about 25 mins. He was extremely attentive and welcoming and he made the interview feel more like a casual conversation. There were some issues with the interview portal initially, so we moved the interview to Skype. The questions that I was asked were on the lines of: 1. Tell me more about your journey and how you arrived where you are today. 2. Why do you want to do an MBA now? 3. On what parameters did you decide which schools to apply to? And which schools have you applied to? 4. Did you select Owen on these parameters or something more? 5. Which is the one skill that you want to improve while at Owen? What is your plan for it? 6. Tell me about a time when you worked on a project which later failed? How did you turn the tables around? 7. Owen is a diverse class. How will you contribute towards enriching the experience of your peers? 8. Do you have any questions for me? I hope this helps! Good luck guys! :)"

Time when you: a. led an initiative and it failed. Lessons. b. did something you didn't know. Experience and lessons c. adapted to a different culture.

"My interview was with Jake Hedgecock, a 2nd year student at Owen. The interview was very relaxed and totally conversational. He was very encouraging. The questions were the usual ones- Tell me a bit about yourself. Why MBA? Why Owen? Difficulties overcome and how did you overcome them? Cross-cultural experiences and a couple more behavioral questions. Hobbies. Any questions for the interviewer"

Skype Interviewed on: Oct 30 2019 Final Decision: Admitted

"I interviewed with Brent Hoff, a 2nd year candidate, via the online portal earlier today. He was very professional and friendly at the same time. Interview lasted 30 minutes but felt short (could be just me). These are the questions I got asked: 1. Walk me through your resume 2. What was your criteria in shortlisting b schools 3. Why MBA and Why Owen 4. What is one skill you wish to improve through MBA and how will you go about doing that 5. How will you contribute to Owen outside the classroom 6. Experience working in a diverse team 7. One time you were part of a project that failed and why did it fail 8. What other schools did you apply to (Definitely restate your desire to attend Owen because it offers xyz that other schools do not) I am a re-applicant and interviewed last year as well. That time I also got asked about one leadership experience and what I am most proud of. Hope this helps. Good luck to everyone!"

Off Campus with Adcom Interviewed on: Jan 16 2019 Final Decision: Admitted

"Had my interview on Wednesday (Jan. 16) in person and it was a mess. 5 minutes into the interview the fire alarm went off and didn't shut off until 2 minutes before the interview ended. So along with the two of us getting constantly interrupted by the alarm, we were interrupted by the person on the intercom updating us about the alarm and the horde of people evacuating from the upper floors (we were on the first floor). By the end of the interview the two of us just looked at each other because we had both had enough haha"
