Georgetown / McDonough MBA Admissions Interview Questions: Round 1 / Adcom / On-Campus

The interview was a fairly relaxed, one-on-one conversation. It was a blind interview and some questions my interviewer asked were:

1) Walk me through your resume
2) Tell me about a challenge at work
3) Tell me about a time you failed at work
4) Why an MBA, Why now?
5) Tell me about a time you worked in a team setting and what you would bring to the learning community

I thoroughly enjoyed my interview. It was very conversational and she seemed genuinely interested in getting to know me.
