Tip 1: Read your Resume Several Times

Chicago Booth MBA Admission Interviewers are a well prepared lot. They will go through your resume in detail and would ask each and every accomplishments, projects, roles and additional information that you have mentioned in your resume. You should be able to explain each and every line in your resume. Also bring a copy of your resume.

Tip 2: Project your leadership capabilities

The reason why the interviewer asks a lot about your projects and roles is to learn about your leadership capabilities. Focus on your leadership when you describe your roles.

Tip 3: Prepare thoroughly for the "Why MBA" and "Why Chicago Booth" questions

The Interviewer will spend considerable number of minutes on these two questions. So be well prepared. The answer to the two questions will show your motivation for Chicago Booth MBA. The Booth Interviewer doesn't want to hear that you chose Booth because of its brand value. The reasons have to be more than the brand. Paraphrase the USP of Chicago Booth with your personal discovery (what you have found out by talking to the Alumni and the things that motivated you to choose Booth over other schools). You should also be able to articulate how you will add value to the Booth Community.
