"My interview slot was just 25 minutes. However, the interviewee was done with his questions in just 15 minutes. Rather than going for descriptive answers, I answered in a clear manner. I went ahead and just stated points/reasonings. The reason I went with this approach is that I was given a very limited time slot and wanted to make the most out of it. Here are the questions that I was asked: 1. What do you do Aarjav? (Before asking this question he made it very clear that he had deeply reviewed my application and knew me. I am using "very" because he mentioned reviewing my application twice) 2. Short-term Goals? 3. Why MBA? 4. Why Schulich?- I had given 3 strong reasons- One of which the interviewer happen to have experienced. He was happy that I mentioned it and he went ahead and told me about his experience. 5. I can see you have marked your willingness for MBA in India as well. Which one do you want me to consider you for? MBA in India or in Toronto? (an implicit Why Toronto question) 6. What is your working style? 7. What would I not know about you after going through your application? -Here I stated multiple facets of my life. The interviewer told me that he is noting down that I feel that I am socially responsible and believe in giving back to society as a comment. 8. You seem to be very clear about your goals, so that's not a problem. I am done with what questions I had planned to ask you. Do you have any questions for me? (10 minutes remaining- I looked at the clock here and it was a pleasant surprise. Pleasant because he said and seemed to be very convinced with my answers and reasoning)- I asked him 2 of the 3 questions that I had prepared. He gave me two very riveting answers. Finally, he told me that since they have a load of applications to review and interview. So, the school's decision on my candidacy will be intimated to me by January. We dropped the call on the 23rd minute."

"I had my interview with Jessica Morgan. Unfortunately, prior to the interview, I didn't have many interactions with her except for a few e-mail exchanges. The conversation felt very mechanical and there was barely any small talk/follow-up questions/reactions, but she was very nice and eager to share when it was time for me to ask questions. Here are some of the questions she asked me: 1. Why did you decide to pursue an MBA? 2. Why do you want to work in that industry? (I mentioned I wanted to shift) 3. Tell me about a time that you had a conflict at work? How did you handle it? 4. Tell me about a time that you set a goal for yourself and you weren't able to do it? What do you wish you could have done differently? 5. What would you do if one of your group mates isn't pulling his/her weight? 6. What would be your biggest challenge when you join the program? 7. Was there ever a time you felt overwhelmed by the amount of work? How did you handle it? 8. She also asked me about something one of my references mentioned 9. What is something about that's not on your resume that I never would have guessed? 10. What is your leadership style? 11. Do you have any questions for me?"

"Interviewer: Jessica Morgan. Duration: 25 minutes Location: Zoom Jessica Morgan is one of the most benevolent admission committee members I have ever met. I met her previously at an MBA fair and scheduled a coffee chat on Zoom prior to my application. She connected me with a brilliant student from the current cohort for me to ask questions regarding the MBA curriculum and life at Schulich. Since she already knew my profile and my interest in the school, we skipped my profile introduction and why Schulich part. Below are the questions I received during the interview. ➊Run me through your resume, ➋Why is there a gap year in your professional life, what have you been doing since then? ➌Why MBA? ➍Why do you want to shift to strategy consulting? ➎What type of leader are you? ➏How do you handle difficulties? Please give an example of a difficult decision you made. What were the steps that you took while making that decision? ➐What are the challenges you expect while studying at Schulich? ➑Do you have any questions for me? Suggestions: Do your research, show your interest, be yourself, do not stress out, relax and enjoy the opportunity to show that you are fit for the program."

"My interviewer was Jessica Morgan. She is a positive friendly interviewer. 30 minutes fled in conversation without hard feelings I dont remember the sequence of the questions, except the very first question 1) Why MBA, why now, why Schulich? A very straightforward question, you have to be ready to answer smoothly and confidently, this is your homework, do it 100%. As it is the very first question it has the impressional effect as well, so do your best 2) A situation when you have resolved a conflict? 3) What would you do if your team member doesn't fulfill his/her tasks? 4) YOu set a goal and could not reach, what have you learned? 5) What extracurricular activities have you done? 6) Your leadership style? 7) What challenges do you expect while pursuing an MBA? 2-7 questions are very specific and individual, maybe you have already thought about them while preparing for application, if not think about them, dont start to mumble and give desperate answers when you have wasted 30-60 seconds and you feel there is a must to answer just something, speaking out loud that you wont have any challenges during the MBA or you have reached all the goals you have set. The second part is your questions: 1) What question do you have for me The wrong answers: - I dont have any, I know everything. - Which campus is for MBA students? You have to ask something, you must not ask a question to which you may get the answer in five minutes in google. Ask about her opinion about the MBA program. Make her tell her story or point of view. Prepare at least 3 questions My interview was about 30 minutes, just be natural and honest and everything will be fine, as you were called for an interview, this means you have bypassed the main difficulties"

"Medium used: Zoom. Duration: 55 Minutes. Interview Panel: Admissions Committee Member (Lady). Questions asked: 1. Brief introduction about self. 2. Why MBA and why not executive MBA? 3. What are your goals and how Schulich MBA would help you achieve them? 4. Situation where you showed leadership skills while solving a problem? 5. What will you bring to the class? 6. How would you describe your leadership style? 7. A time you failed and what you learned from it? 8. One thing that we would not know looking into your application. 9. Challenges that you expect while undertaking your education at Schulich? 10. Any questions for me - I asked about scholarship assistance. Overall a very satisfying interview experience where I was able to put across my point and had a patient hearing for the same. There was no rebuttal at any point, what I noticed was that every time I was answering the interviewer would record my response, I guess they would have used it to analyze in more detail later on. Advice: Be patient, understand what has been asked, and then answer logically. Be clear about why MBA and how Schulich will help you reach your goals. All the very best."

"I interviewed on the 15th and got admitted 2 days later with scholarship so I'd say they move really fast. I may just be lucky that I scheduled my interview right before AdCom has their meeting though. Before the application + interview: did a lot of research online so I know exactly why I want Schulich, but I didn't talk to anyone from the school. I'd advise you to NOT do what I did. Talk to someone and get a vibe of the school. Interview: quicker than Ivey and Queen's. I talked to Jessica Morgan, and we had a nice and relaxing interview. Questions include: - Why MBA? Why now? Why Schulich? - Describe how you resolved a conflict - How would you describe your style of leadership? - A time you had a failure? - What is one thing we'd never expect about you? -> this aims at finding who you really are. I already included traveling and stand-up comedy as my hobbies in the resume, so I'm out of quirky little things to say. I gave a boring answer (reading) but delivered in a tongue-in-cheek way. Made her laugh so I guess it worked. Prepare questions to ask them as well. Good luck!"

"Had my interview with Elle Sharma. Super fun interaction and nothing to sweat over. Just general behavioural and work related questions. Lasted an hour. My advice would be to not overthink it and stick to candid answers as you probably already have thought about all of these throughout your application process. 1. Why MBA? Why Schulich? Goals? 2. Conflict handling. 3. What does leadership mean to you? 4. Time when you had to make a tough decision. 5. Challenges you would have while pursuing the MBA slash weakness."
