Submit an Interview Report for Columbia Business School, Duke / Fuqua, Stanford GSB, UVA / Darden or Yale SOM, Win a $10 Gift Card to Amazon!

Welcome to another edition of Wiki Wednesdays, in which we take a peek at the latest submissions to the Clear Admit Wiki, an online repository for MBA applicants’ admissions interviews.  We’ve received a number of interview reports this past week – for Columbia Business School, Dartmouth / Tuck, Michigan / Ross and Northwestern / Kellogg – and we’d like to thank everyone who has been posting their experiences this season! 

Before getting into contest details, let’s focus on a few snippets from some of the latest contributions!  A Round 2 applicant to Northwestern / Kellogg shared the following questions, as posed by an alumna:

  1. What makes a good leader/a bad leader? 
  2. Tell me about a time you’ve been on a team that has failed.
  3. Tell me about a time you have been humbled.

Talk at Tuck mainly revolved around teamwork, as a Round 2 applicant reported in the Clear Admit Wiki.  An  adcom member asked the following questions:

  1. Tell about a time you worked on a team.
  2. What are the qualities that make you successful on a team?
  3. Tell me about a time you experienced conflict on a team, and how you handled it?

Thank you to everyone who has helped fellow applicants by sharing your interview experience!  If you’re eager to contribute, we’ll be awarding a $10 Amazon gift certificate to applicants that submit interview reports for Columbia Business School, Duke / Fuqua, Stanford GSB, UVA / Darden or Yale SOM through next Tuesday, February 16th!  In other words, all you have to do is send us your interview field report for the selected schools for inclusion in the Wiki and we’ll send you a $10 Amazon gift certificate.   You must send your interview report to wiki@clearadmit.com to be eligible; we’ll post it to the Wiki and notify the winners by e-mail (Limit: one iTunes or Amazon gift card per person).

The most helpful and informative reports usually include the following information:

  1. Date/Admissions Round
  2. Description of visit and/or interview atmosphere
  3. Type of interview (alum vs. adcom, blind vs. application-based)
  4. List of interview questions
  5. Commentary (What did you think of the interview? What surprised you? What didn’t surprise you? What might you conclude about the school based on this experience?)

Applicants who would like to supplement the information available on the Wiki can check out our Clear Admit Interview Guides, which provide school-specific insight about admissions interviews.  Best of luck to those undergoing Round 2 interviews!
