Standard Interview Preparation
As you prepare for interviews, the cliché holds true: practice makes perfect! While you cannot anticipate ALL the questions you’ll be asked, you can certainly prepare key themes and examples, and then practice refining your message in a realistic mock interview using common questions your particular school has asked.
- Interview strategy session: 60 minutes of interview preparation (either general or school-specific) - $350

Harvard Business School
Coaching clients through hundreds of HBS interviews over the years has taught us it is a more intense experience than other schools for most applicants. For instance, your interviewer will have reviewed your full application (essays, transcripts, resume, etc.) and you’ll have a 30-minute Q&A session that requires more efficient storytelling. The best interview results have been from candidates who are succinct, can provide thoughtful insight into their full application, and have anticipated the questions to come.
To prepare you for HBS, we’ve provided the interview preparation options below to tailor our sessions to your needs.
- Package A: One 30-minute interview strategy session + one 60-minute full interview session (30-minute interview, 30-minute feedback) - $400
- Package B: One 60-minute interview strategy session + two 60-minute full interview sessions (30-minute interview, 30 minute feedback). Note: this includes unlimited access to standardized web-based video practice tools - $900

As you know, Wharton’s interview process is unique in that it includes a group discussion. In an effort to help you prepare for this challenge, we offer group interview practice sessions. We conduct these sessions in a secure, online format to give you a chance to simulate the interview environment.
Taking part in our practice session allows you to:
- Experience the stress of interacting with Wharton-grade peers driving towards a time-sensitive deliverable (for many participants, a first) in a risk-free environment
- Articulate your response to other Wharton applicants, hear their ideas, and gain valuable group feedback
- The chance to give and receive critical feedback with your peers
You never know, someone you practice with may be in your actual interview, giving you a critical edge! After the session, we will offer you detailed written feedback, highlighting our assessment of the following:
- Effectiveness of your idea
- Your contributions to group dynamics
- Strengths to leverage and weaknesses to address
The cost for one group session and written feedback is $400. Please note that space is limited.
We conduct these sessions in groups of 4-6 participants. Having an appropriate number of applicants in the conversation makes the simulation as realistic as possible, which is important for all the participants. The value of the session is maximized only if all people who sign up attend. Given the group nature of the call (and the importance of having a full group to practice), there are no refunds if you cannot participate.
We are offering the following practice interview slots – note: as mentioned above, getting the right number of participants is crucial, so we will only hold a session if there are enough participants to simulate the group activity:

Words from our clients
“Participating in your group mock interview made a crucial difference in my acceptance to Wharton, as the feedback I received was invaluable to formulating a successful interview strategy. As this was my first opportunity to interact with non-military peers of this caliber, I quickly recognized my need to consider how to most appropriately share my leadership style. Further, I definitely felt like I had a competitive advantage walking into my actual interview, simply due to feeling at ease with the interview process itself. Finally, I appreciated learning more about how to provide insightful ideas and commentary to truly add value to the group. Thank you for this excellent preparatory tool!”
"I had no idea what to expect from the group interview - the practice really calmed my nerves."
