I don't think there are any tailor-made "out of the box" answers to a question like "Why should we take you?" Your reasons for wanting an MBA will vary, and the MBA admissions committee will want to hear all of them, I think.

Nice answer...i tried something like that, but it turned against me...finally i was asked to choose one of the options, after which i chose the 65%, following which i was screwed for the nxt 5 mins on how i wasnt a team player nd stuff...plus i hav a sneaky feeling that even if i'd chosen teh 96% they'd hav said that i wasnt ambitious enough or something
i somehow felt like the emoticons above

LOL. yeh you should always choose one option , cause then the panel thinks that you are "beating about the bush". just get to the point , (i might want to ask the panel if they are in a relaxes mood , that whether it is out of 100? ) it is a tricky question , lot of rebuttle for anything u may say.. well anyways, id say i would rather have if a 65% and come first in class,.

My question is
Is there any tailor made answer to the question "Why should we take you" ?
The reason being whatever I say the panel always replies that this quality is present in others as well.Whatever it may be,the reply is the same:WHAT IS THAT XTRA???
Is it that I need more introspection or is it that I need to paraphrase in such a manner that there is no further questioning...or there's some other problem

:Your rights in the interview:

There are clear human rights guidelines for employment interview questions. An applicant for employment may be asked to divulge only information relevant to the position applied for. By law, an employer must focus on gathering information relevant to deciding if an applicant can perform the functions of a position.

Some employers mistakenly believe that they have a right to ask any question they choose since they are paying the salary. Others are simply awkward in their technique, and an unlawful question results. However, human rights law does not distinguish between the interviewer who is asking questions with the intent to discriminate and the one who is just curious or inept at interviewing.

Some questions are appropriate and others are illegal. You do not have to answer questions that are illegal. The Ontario Human Rights Code prohibits discrimination in employment on the grounds of:

  1. Race
  2. Ancestry
  3. Place of origin
  4. Colour
  5. Ethnic origin
  6. Citizenship
  7. Religion
  8. Sex
  9. Sexual orientation
  10. Age Record of offences
  11. Marital status Same-sex partnership status
  12. Family status
  13. Disability

Although it is ultimately the responsibility of the interviewer to know the law, this knowledge may sometimes be lacking. It is to your advantage to be informed on the subject.

after entering the interview room. are we req 2 just sit there after their permission or we have 2 show our degrees and all at the starting.
my question sounds really stupid but i wanna know is there anything which we have 2 do on our own rather than being asked.

We are supposed to go and stand near the chair. We shouldn't ask for their permission to sit. There were instances where the whole interview was conducted with the interviewee was standing.

And generally we shouldn't offer them our file unless asked for which they will invariably do at some point. Or there may be a separate session for checking the degrees. However its prudent to keep the file very well prepared. It creates a very good impression.

@ subho_86
Thanks for posting valuable questions here.Your posts are quite good but I suggest to to edit your posts and arrange them in a systematic way.In some questions,I found that some part of the question is below the first or second line inspite of some place remaining in the preceding line.

Point noted there mate. Thanks for your input!
