Strengths & Weaknesses

MBA interviewers are only human, and like all humans, they can form initial impressions of your candidacy within the first few seconds of reviewing your resume just seconds before the interview starts.The “Strengths & Weaknesses” module is designed to show you just what your interviewer may think when first reading over your resume. In less than five minutes, you’ll get an initial “diagnosis report” that will give you a quick snapshot of where you stand.
You will use this knowledge to pro-actively address any perceived weaknesses (such as your age or quantitative ability) during the interview. This module is usually exclusive to  ApplicantLab users who purchase the full-access subscription, however, it is offered to MBA InterviewLab users for a limited time. Access your customized diagnosis report now!

Set Your Strategy

What is the number one reason otherwise competitive candidates get rejected or don’t receive scholarship money? A weak, vague, or boring career vision and/or “why MBA” rationale.

Luckily, with the MBA InterviewLab you won’t be that guy. The “Career Vision” and “Why MBA?” modules offer interactive, online exercises and videos that work hand-in-hand to help you create a strong and interesting rationale that you will use across every interview. You may discover a little something about yourself along the way.

Already submitted your application with a slightly different story? No problem! There is still time to refine your Career Vision and Why MBA argument so that you shine in your interview.

Find Your Strongest Stories

Stories are the core elements of any successful interview. Admissions committees are looking for candidates who possess certain brand (personality) traits and stories are the “evidence” you’re going to provide that you are what they are searching for.


MBA InterviewLab’s Brainstorming and Branding modules will work in tandem to help you dig deep and discover your most powerful stories. These two modules will also give you the perfect framework to analyze your stories so that later you can best match them to each potential interview question you might encounter.

The INTERVIEW PREP MODULE!

(this is the bulk of where you’ll spend your time!)

The Interview Prep module is so comprehensive, many ApplicantLab users have told me that they did NOT need to purchase a single mock interview after going through it!

Through interactive questions and engaging educational video lessons, the Interview Module will teach you:

  • How to best prepare for your admissions interview, whether it takes place in-person, on Skype, or in a small group (like the infamous Wharton Team-Based Discussion)
  • How to approach each interview question (even the tricky questions that make you go: “Huh?”)
  • How to develop strategies for different interviewers, including Adcoms, Alumni, and Current MBA Students
  • What to mention during your interview — and which details should be left OUT
  • Samples of “good” and “bad” answers for the top 15 most consistently asked MBA Interview questions

BONUS: If you are still in the application stage for the schools like University of Washington Foster, Emory Goizueta, or Vanderbilt Owen, that require you to complete an online pre-recorded video interview prior to submitting your application, MBA InterviewLab has you covered with interview advice that is perfectly transferable to all pre-recorded and online interviews.

Does the MBA InterviewLab Work?

The interview prep section of the Lab is by far my favorite… Maria has uploaded video advice for almost all the possible questions that someone could get in an interview…

I remember one of my interviewers specifically told me that my answer for the question ‘walk me through your resume’ was one of the best he had heard during this year’s application season. The entire credit for this goes to Maria.”
