Rotman MBA 2021 Video Interview 总结 [2020.07.23]

[日期:2020-09-14] 来源:ChaseDream论坛 作者:zhe.p.li [字体: ]

申请学校:Columbia NYU Rotman

BG: GMAT 2016 700 美国有一个全奖的 MSA DIY T 免 四年中国四大 四年其他 Financial Experience MSA 毕业后美国小 Firm 两年经验

美国人申学校没有特别多的,美国的顶级中介或者导师最多建议 5 所,不好的会建议更多,美国最好的最大的资讯机构是 Stacy Blackman,好的咨询会有 M16 或者 top 10 前或现任招生官帮你 brianstorm 和改文书,我自己用了他们两小时做 brainstorm,但只为了一个学校 Columbia.效果不是很好,但会告知要注意的问题,比如推荐信最好 800 字左右,不要太少。批评要 gentle 之类。有一些用处。

因为在纽约三年,纽约的学校自然首选。但这个城市像围城。外边没来居住过的,不是旅行,都喜欢和憧憬。但居住过的觉得就是北京人在纽约说的地狱,除二代挥金如土生活潇洒惬意,Manhattan 单独 apartment 5000 起挑自己住的话。每天我在路上时间 3 小时至少,每天睡 5 小时。

话回 Rotman,video interview 已经不再是 Kira 了,是他们自己的系统和问题。Kira 的问题有参考价值但方向有偏颇。面试题应该是一年都是一样的。我贴出来我在中国美国所有网站找到的题库,应该是目前最全的,免费分享大家。今年的面试题目没放里面。Video 面试要有自信,你可以有口音,说话慢,说清楚就好。我见了太多 Columbia 的学生那个口音。中国的、新加坡的、土耳其的、印度的。我好奇怎么过的面试。

加拿大我去了四次,都是周末飞过去吃东西,找小姐姐。印度人是大部分,而且是传统上海的阿三,包头巾教派。因为加拿大对印度人有优惠的移民政策。冬天超冷,比 Boston 还冷,下大雪我开过几次车,做好准备。

祝未来同学们一切顺利。
