Back in August, I produced an Interview Prep video for GMAT Club, where Avanti Prep is a featured admissions consulting partner. Now that MBA interview season is in high gear, I thought it would be appropriate to share the video here as well. If you've been fortunate to secure interview invites — or are getting ready for automatic or applicant-initiated interviews with the likes of Kellogg or Tuck — then I encourage you to do everything you can to convert that interview into an admit!
Why Interview Prep is important
Effective interviews require practice and preparation to understand how to:
All of that and more is covered in the video below. If you have the time (about 14 minutes), I believe the best way to engage with the video is with a blank document or piece of paper in front of you, jotting down key takeaways in whatever manner you prefer — and beginning to map out your responses to specific questions and brainstorm your mental bench of key themes and stories.
Personalized Interview Prep — the most thorough and cost-effective you'll find!
If you're looking for personalized interview prep, I offer extremely thorough Interview Prep sessions, including an extended mock interview tailored to your school(s) of choice (~60 minutes) followed by question-by-question coaching and feedback (~90 minutes). No stone is left unturned.
Avanti Prep's Interview Prep service is $495 for 2.5 hours. Comparable services offer only a 30-minute mock interview and 30 minutes of coaching and feedback, which is far from sufficient.
The proof is in the results — and client testimonials
In the most recently completed round (Round 2 of the 2017-18 season), my Interview Prep clients received results ranging from admits to HBS and Stanford (710 GMAT, male, London) all the way through a full scholarship to Questrom (680 GMAT, male, India) — and many more in between.
