Interview Experience- Wharton
Interview experience 1 -
I had a telephonic interview with an AdCom member. He was very friendly and described the process and told me that a phone interview is equal to an in-person interview. There were very less follow-up questions. The interview lasted for around 30minutes. It was a great experience for me as it was my first MBA personal interview.
The questions were -
Walk me through your resume
Why are you interested in doing MBA?
Why are you planning to do MBA now?
Why you choose Wharton?
Describe about your team leading experience
How do you manage someone more senior to you?
How do you manage someone with less experience than you?
Describe a time when you had to convince people of an idea they initially opposed
Do you have any question for me?
It was a wonderful experience as it was my first b-school interview, I was very excited about getting interview call and finally hoping to clear this and get started soon!
