—  Q & A  —

How many interview training sessions should I take to prepare for my first interview?
If there is enough time, candidates generally take at least 3 sessions before their first interview with the following schedule:

Session 1: Preparation Questions with general feedback and advice on strategies
Session 2: Standard Questions with general feedback and reinforcement of strategies
Session 3: Additional Questions with focused feedback

Additional sessions are useful to build confidence, brush up skills before interviews with more schools
and practice for presentations or other expanded requirements.

How can I prepare for your sessions for essay editing?
I recommend creating draft documents and interview answers as close to the final version as possible.
The more prepared you are, the sooner we can work on more detailed and strategic content.

Essay editing includes:
Proofreading for spelling, grammar and word usage
Feedback on content
brainstorming sessions
e-mail support

Estimated amount of work we can cover in each session.

500 words per session = 50 mins. (brainstorming, techniques and idea sharing)
750 words per session = 50 mins. (editing, word usage and content feedback)
1000 words per session = 50 mins. (proofreading)

What is the most common advice or feedback do you give to improve interviews?
I recommend ending answers in a clear and confident manner.
Often candidates will stop their answer in the body section and leave out a persuasive closing argument
to achieve the desired result: Acceptance into the MBA program.
