PI is the last opportunity for selection of MBA admission

The Personal Interview is the last chance for you to impress the admission team of a business school. You were selected for the Personal Interview based on your academic excellence, extracurricular activities and work experience, if any. And the Personal Interview is a platform for you to showcase your verbal and non-verbal skills. 

Since the interviewer selected you because he/she was impressed by your excellent academic record, you should not focus too much on academics at the Personal Interview. Instead, demonstrate your good communication skills and professionalism that are not evident in your resume.
The Personal Interview is the last step of the selection process for an MBA admission. So, make the most of it by preparing well for it. Remember that you don’t get a second chance if you don’t perform well in the Personal Interview.
So, go through the list of ‘Dos and Don’ts’ carefully and exude confidence and enthusiasm during the interview. Ensure that you arrive at the interview room at least 10 minutes before your interview. And dress appropriately for the interview. According to Forbes, you only have seven seconds to make a good and a lasting impression. And in the first seven seconds, an interviewer will judge you based on your handshake, eye contact, and confidence level. 
Either have a mock interview session with your peers or practise before a mirror before going into the interview room. As the saying goes, ‘practice makes perfect’, by rehearsing several times, you will automatically gain confidence, and you will not make mistakes during the Personal Interview.
So, maintain your poise and convince the interviewer that you are up to the MBA challenge. Once you clear the Personal Interview, you will be one step closer to becoming a successful business leader.
