Hooray, you're invited to interview at a top business school.... now what?? The best MBA programs all require an interview before admission. The admissions committee needs to get a first-hand experience with a candidate – or, at least, a second-hand report of such an experience from an alum – in order to have another data point for use in evaluating, and in weeding out, the good from the bad. Yet the array of interview scenarios is incredibly confusing – applicant-initiated interviews, invitation-only interviews, blind interviews – even Skype interviews. What are the best strategies? How do you prepare? This SnarkStrategies Guide will lay it all out for you. The interview can be the make-or-break experience in your bschool application. Make the most of it with EssaySnark!

Thank you EssaySnark.
I found the suggestions presented in this interview guide to be very practical and after practising them, found them to be very helpful in my interviews.
The cost was economical and the style of writing kept me smiling throughout the interview preparation.
Thanks for bring some fun into the stressful journey of applying to business school through your unique and snarky style.
I was able to leverage the content of this guide in all my interviews and I can say that it really helped me in gathering my thoughts through the suggested exercises.
Be aware that this guide won`t spoon-feed you sample answers for interview questions!
I've used a lot of EssaySnark's products to help me draft a coherent application and this one doesn't disappoint.
As with all of the other products, this guide will not tell you what to say, but how to think about your approach including a few exercises to get you on the right track. You will still need to do all of the hard work (thinking) yourself, but it will help you to avoid sounding like everyone else.
Don't buy if you want a bunch of cookie-cutter answers to memorise.
Good luck with your interview (and wish me luck with mine!).
