Online Interviewed on: Jan 28 2022

"Application submitted on : 3-Jan-22 Interview invite sent on: 21-Jan-22 Interviewed on: 28-Jan-22 Total interview duration - 40 mins The interviewer was a 2nd year student, specializing in consulting. While I had tested Zoom 30 mins prior and logged in 10 mins prior, my Zoom crashed, as soon as the interviewer joined(Murphy's First Law, I guess). Took around 3-4 mins to join back. He gave a quick introduction of himself, and we started the interview. Questions[30 mins] Profile Questions: 1. Walk me through your resume 2. ST/LT Goals 3. Why MBA? 4. Why now? 5. Why Tuck? Before moving to the behavioral questions, he asked me if there was something I wanted to talk about, over and above the previous questions Behavioral Questions(no specific order; paraphrasing): 1. Tell me about a time when someone came to you with a complaint. Follow up questions on the incident 2. Tell me about a time when you failed 3. What do you want your legacy at Tuck to be? 4. Given Tuck emphasizes on teamwork, what are you going to bring to the table, during interactions with your team 5. What are the clubs that you would want to join at Tuck? Why? 6. Currently, what are your biggest fears about moving to Tuck? Given the Zoom snafu, I had only 5 mins to ask him questions. Ended up asking 2 questions. Ended the conversation with apologizing again for the technical issues. Also, sent him a note of thanks within 30 mins after the interview. Hope this helps. All the best!"

"* Application submitted on 11/29 * Invited to interview on 12/06 * Interviewed on 12/8 The interview was quite conversational and followed a usual structure beginning with pleasantries, moving on to goals and behavioral questions, and ending with questions for the interviewer. The interviewer was a 2nd-year student with a background in marketing and a humble attitude. She was very friendly and we had a great conversation. [The questions mentioned below are not how they were put exactly but I have tried my best to convey the intended meaning; I chose not to record my interview and so the order of questions may be slightly jumbled] Questions: [First ~30 mins] Why Tuck? ST/LT goals What is it that you are lacking right now to pursue your short-term goals? What clubs and activities do you see yourself engaging in at Tuck? What has been your most significant achievement? A time when you went out of your comfort zone! A time when you learned something from your peers! Negative feedback that you received at work and how did you respond to it? How did it change you? Anything that you hoped to cover as part of our interaction but has not come up yet? [Last ~10 mins] Do you have any questions for me? I hope this helps! All the very best!"
