How to ruin your MBA interview

Submitted By Spencer Peng, PREP 4 GMAT

MBA interviews can be nerve-racking for business school applicants, but if you want to make sure that you ruin your chances of admission, these nine tips should help.

1 .Don’t bother preparing. The name of the school is probably all you need to know. Being able to talk about specific classes and student organizations makes you look too eager.

2. Don’t focus too much on one school. Show business schools that they’ve got competition by name-dropping the other schools you’re applying to while you’re interviewing. If you want to make it even more clear, you can mix up the program names.

3. Recite your resume. Try not to paraphrase or shorten. Most MBA interviews are around 45 minutes so you should make sure that you resume takes up as much of that time as possible.
