How’s the Fuqua interview? What kind of questions are asked?

Interview is strictly behavioral/fit type questions: (1) Walk me through your resume; (2) Why an MBA?; (3) Why Fuqua?; (4) Tell me about a time you worked in a team. These four will almost always be asked. From there, it’s a mix of behavioral type questions i.e. tell me about a time you took constructive feedback, obstacle, resolved a conflict. Also be prepared to show your research on the school - look at clubs or activities you’d be interested in. Source: Former Fuqua Admissions Interviewer

Can confirm all of this as I just went through the Fuqua interview process!

No problem! I should’ve added this: Just remember to relax, be confident in your answers, and try and make it in to a conversation - ask questions about their summer, internships, etc. Remember that Fuqua interviews are student led by 2nd years, so these are people that were in your shoes not too long ago. Good luck! I’m sure you’ll crush it!
