Business schools have already started interviewing MBA applicants. New feedback is flowing into the MBA Interview Feedback Database, one of Accepted.com’s most heavily utilized resources. The database contains feedback from thousands of interviews and over a hundred different schools.
This year we are happy to introduce filtering ability to the database. The database is organized by school and you have been able to filter for years by certain criteria related to the applicant ( for example major area of interest, age). As of this week, you can also choose to view specific content for multiple reports on one screen. So if you want to see the most recent twenty reports for HBS and you are only interested in what the applicants write about the interview’s content, you can drill down for exactly that. Check out the responses in the MBA Interview Feedback Database.
Of course, the database and its super-duper, shiny, scalable, interoperable, cutting-edge (sorry I’ve been reading too many essay drafts from applicants in IT) filtering ability would be worthless without content. After you interview, please take a minute to fill out the short MBA interview questionnaire. Doing so will allow the database to grow and provide value to other applicants. Plus filling out the form automatically enrolls you in our It’s a 10! Contest.
This year, if you interview on campus, please let us see what you see. Take some pictures! And then submit them to the Beautiful B-School Photo Contest. Cash prizes will help to defray the cost of a lucky winner’s trip.
And finally, if you want to be as ready as you can be for that critical interview, consider an MBA Mock Interview or MBA Interview Coaching. A dry run or coaching can help you feel more comfortable and prepared. It may also help you get accepted.
