[日期:2017-04-10] 来源:ChaseDream论坛 作者:caihsiao [字体: ]

抱歉面经放晚了,只能造福今后申请的小伙伴了。

这次一共申请了六所学校:
Chicago Booth / Wharton / HBS / Stanford GSB / Berkeley Haas / MIT Sloan,都在R2,非常幸运全部拿到了面试。

一直都从CD上受益良多,想分享一下面经,希望能给以后的申请者带来帮助。感觉每个学校的面试的风格都挺不一样的,至于面试表现占的比例究竟有多少,莫衷一是。比如我觉得面得很烂的学校也没有给我拒信,我觉得面得还不错的学校也没有给offer。。

我的申请小结放在了这个帖子里,供参考。

下面分学校放面经吧。

===============================================

Chicago Booth (In with $)
On campus,45 mins, 2nd year student

  • Why MBA?
  • Why Booth?
  • What extracurricular activities do you plan to get involved?
  • What contributions can you make to the Booth community?
  • Tell me a failure example.
  • What is your biggest weakness?
  • Tell me a time you inspired others. T* ell me something about you that is not already in the resume. (这个题之前没有准备到,现场卡了一下)

个人感觉Booth非常看重和学校的fit以及你对学校的了解。建议尽可能熟悉和你career goal相关的资源,比如哪几门课,哪些club,哪些比赛,哪些活动。也尽量能从多个角度阐述你能给Booth带来的贡献。

===============================================

Wharton (Waitlist)
On campus, 35 mins + 10 mins, 2nd year student
Team based discussion: 设计一个leadership venture的活动。

1 on 1: How I felt about the TBD? / What clubs are you interested in Wharton?

这次遇到了几个consulting和ibd的口才超级棒的队友,压力山大,我没有发挥好。感觉TBD随机的因素比较大,因为你很难预测你的队友是什么样的人。对我来说就是做好coordinator/facilitator的角色,时刻不要忘记push the agenda and make real progress。

35分钟真的非常快就过去了。。如果房间里有白板尽量利用起来,做总结的时候会非常有用。

===============================================

Stanford GSB (In)
Off campus, Alumni, 1 hour.

  • Biggest achievement.
  • A challenging experience.
  • Tell me a time when you were blocked from reaching your goal.
  • Any question for me?

校友是硅谷知名公司c-level所以我很紧张,四个问题问了一个小时,每个问题都挖掘的非常深,follow up了非常多的细节,尤其感兴趣其中做的很多决定的motivation是什么。我觉得要注意的是在讲故事的过程中要体现出self reflection和self awareness。

面试会要求在10天之内完成,我周三收到面试通知,周四给我发邮件match了一个校友,然后那个校友居然让我周五就去面我也是醉了。。。

===============================================

HBS (Waitlist)
On campus, AO, 45 mins.

Opening: 5 mins

  • Weather in Boston
  • Have you visited school before? What do you think of it?

Company and Industry: 25 mins

  • use plain words to explain what you do at [company A].
  • follow up: explain what are the "computer vision problems"?
  • follow up: seems computer vision problems are universally available, how did you find them?
  • follow up: how long do you spend in each stage?
  • follow up: you mentioned you need to find the intersection between technology and business. How do you keep up to date with the latest industry news?
  • why AI is so important to your company?
  • what are your company’s competitors?
  • in the field of AI who are the leaders?
  • follow up: why not those AI startups?
  • follow up: we focused mainly on companies in US. what about AI companies in China such as Alibaba? are they threats?
  • follow up: what do you think of AI companies in India? (听到这题我也是倒抽一口凉气然后开始瞎掰。。一边说一边想下一个问题是不是会问我对Brazil的AI公司怎么看。。)
  • what do you think of the Snapchat IPO? do you think it is worth the value? why? (这题很牛,Snapchat就在我面试的前一天上市的)

Other personal questions: 15 mins

  • what is the best quality that accounts for your success so far?
  • what do you do outside of jobs?
  • clarify a detail on the resume.

可能因为我是非传统背景(engineer),非常多的关于我的行业的问题。问题很多,节奏很快,和我在class visit的感觉非常相似。感觉AO通过这样的面试形式来考察你能否顺畅简洁的在case method中贡献出你的观点。对未来的申请者有一点要注意的是,尽量早选面试时间,空位很快就会被选完。

===============================================

Berkeley Haas (Waitlist)
On campus, 1st year student, 45 mins.

  • Walk me through your resume.
  • Why MBA, why Haas.
  • What is your biggest weakness?
  • Tell me a time you were a leader.
  • How would your colleagues describe you?
  • How would your friends describe you? (我在前一题把准备过的赞美之词一下子说完了,所以此处又卡了一下。。)
  • What type of leader do you want to become?

和Booth一样,Haas也是很看重fit和对学校的了解,我的问题里面对leadership的考察也比较多。还有就是Haas的网申是要上传学位证和毕业证的,不然总是显示材料不齐,我还有一些其他小伙伴都直接忽略了。希望以后申请的小伙伴们留意一下。

===============================================

MIT Sloan (Waitlist)
Hub city, AO, 40 mins.

  • Is there anything new to your application?
  • Tell me a time that things did not work as expected and how you * had to inspire the team.
  • Tell me a time you worked with multiple teams.
  • What is your career goal?
  • Why MBA? Why Sloan?
  • What resources do you think Sloan can help you?
  • What did your friends at Sloan tell you about the student body?
  • Anything else you want to share?
  • Any questions for me?

本来听说Sloan是完全不管career goal的,没有想到面试的时候也问到了。总的来说面试的节奏和问题都是比较正常的。最后问我本科有没有上过微观经济学,我说没有我本科是学EE的,囧。。。
