Northwestern - Online interview preparation


Dslaw

Hello everyone!


I hope everyone is doing well.


I just received an email from NU to schedule the online interview next week. I am super happy! However, I have no idea what to expect on that day and thought I might not be the only one in this case. Thus, we could help each other to prep this interview! 1f642


For what I have heard from now, the usual questions are :


- Why NU?

- Which part of your application do you want the committee to focus on?

- and 2 responses must be written !

Does anyone know what types of questions are asked for the written answers?

What others questions should we expect?

Do we have a specific time to response?


Btw, I can see that some students have already been accepted, congrats to all of you !! 1f44d I hope you that you can help us to prep this interview!!



Thanks all

Hi! Isn't the interview based on pre-recorded questions? I got an email asking me to check in and complete the interview within the next 15 days. Did you guys get invites for live virtual interviews?

I did my interview today and the practice questions were not at all anything like actual interview. Expect behavioural and situational questions like: 

1. What is the most innovative change you have implemented?
2. What is the best example of your leadership experience. 
3. How do you define success?
4. What is an example of a stressful situation you have dealt with?
5. What would you do if someone approached you with a problem?

And then there is the staple - Why northwestern? and What aspect of your application would you like the admissions committee to focus on?

The practice questions of "what is your favourite x (colour/animal/pet)" were entirely unhelpful. I would ignore and prepare based on typical interview type behaviour and situational questions requiring a STAR response.
