I have received the invitation almost immediately after they started sending them out, being an international student I was offered a Skype interview and a variety of dates, quite convenient to be honest. Unlike Kellogg, Anderson’s interviews are conducted by second-year students, who pass trainings before becoming a part of admissions team.
My interviewer has added me on Skype one hour prior to our interview time, which was nice, because with Kellogg I was worried, as I had been added a few minutes before the thing, making me uncomfortable.
Interview with a student feels different from an interview with an adcom member, I felt like it was more relaxed and not a ‘checklist’ we had discussed some of my points and he added his thoughts on them, which was great!
The questions were quite traditional:
- Walk me through your resume
- Why MBA
- Why UCLA
- Why Now
- Tell me a story you convinced somebody
- Anything you want to ask?
Overall, I felt that interview went quite well, learning curve at work!
So, here’s the updated status of my applications:
