Tip #1: Relax and Be Yourself
Tip #2: Take Time to Prepare
Tip #3: Research the Program
Tip #4: Be Succinct Yet Comprehensive
As you answer the interviewer’s questions, do so in a way that’s succinct yet provides full context. Answering questions in a way that’s straightforward and to the point provides more time for the interviewer to ask better questions to get to know you more. The more we know about you, the better we can assess your candidacy.
Tip #5: Ask Questions
The interview process is a two way exchange. As we find out more about you, you are interviewing us as well. The interview process is a great time to ask any questions that you have about the program you applied to.
If you have a lot of questions, the interview is your chance to ask someone who has been through the admissions process and MBA experience. Feel free to jot down your questions so that the ones you truly want answered don’t get lost in the moment. Asking questions is another way to demonstrate that you’ve taken the time to learn about Chicago Booth.
Tip #1: Dress Professionally
Our virtual interview is very similar to our in-person interviews. The questions and length of the interview are the exact same. With that being said, we ask that you put your best foot forward just as you would for an in person meeting by dressing professionally in business attire.
Tip #2: Research Your Interviewer
Tip #3: Test Technology Beforehand
Tip #4: Be Conversational
Tip #5: Share Your Story
One of the most important actions you can take at this time is to equip yourself with the tools necessary to ace your interview. Be yourself and enjoy the process.
We wish you the best of luck!
