Seems like just verbal essays to me. All the questions are what schools would ask in the essay section. I think the questions are good. I think the questions will give different feedback than the written essays. Additionally, it will be easier to tell if someone is bulls**tting.

I think if you know yourself well then you should not have a hard time, without or without preparation.

I think it is a fair way... if the questions are not known beforehand.

I don't think the interviewed candidates during the first 2 weeks of November performed as good as the ones interviewing this week.
