Georgetown McDonough Interview Experience 1

I was interviewed in Round 2 for batch entering in 2012. It was an adcom interview at a hotel in Chicago. It was a blind interview i.e. Interviewer has no access to my application. Most of the questions asked were standard MBA admissions interview questions:

1. Why MBA?

Me: I gave a well prepared response talking about my past professional experiences, my post MBA goals - short as well as long term and where does MBA fit in.

2. Why McDonough?

Me: My friend’s reference, good brand, interaction with student community ( through my campus visit), and good placements

3. What is your leadership style?

Me: I defined my style and supported that with an anecdote

4. Hobbies/ Extra currics?

Me: Talked about it

5. What is your biggest failure in life

Me: Gave a well-rehearsed answer. I was asked this in another interview as well.

6. Do you have any questions for us?

My interview stretched to 45 minutes but I think the campus visit and few related discussions helped me connect well with the interviewer.

Georgetown McDonough Interview Experience 2

I was offered a Skype interview with admissions committee member. I dressed up in business casuals. Some of the questions asked were:

  1. current job responsibilities and describe a typical day at work
  2. What are your short term and long term goals?
  3. Your work experience doesn’t contribute a lot to your post MBA goals? Explain.
  4. What is your leadership style? Talk about your leadership experiences.
  5. Any questions for us?
