MBA interview admissions Tips

Hi,
I have been invited for MBA admissions interview. Currently, I am working in a healthcare role with some management experience. I shall be grateful if someone can guide me for interview preparation or share their experience. I am expecting to be asked about why MBA/why now/why this university? Are these stress interviews? Obviously, the university is looking for motivation to do MBA, contribution to the group learning etc. I am not sure whether I am missing something obvious. Do I utilize the same strategies as for the job interviews? Your help will be much appreciated. Thank you
Regards
Anu

They'll be relatively similar to job interviews - so, be prepared for the generic questions about your strengths and weaknesses, why do you want an MBA, why now, etc.

But what they'll be looking for, maybe even above all of that, is a sense of if and how you'll fit at the school. This is something that's really hard for them to gather from your application materials. So think critically about your 'fit' - what's the culture like at the school? Would you feel comfortable in a place like that?
