Vanderbilt MSF Interview Help Request

Hi everyone, 

I've been applying for Vanderbilt MSF's Fall 2022 intake and just got invited to an interview, which will take place next Thursday. What kind of questions should I anticipate? Before coming here to ask I reached out to some current students and here are some of the questions they advise me to consider:

  1. Why an MSF at Vanderbilt?

  2. Tell me more about your internship experience

  3. Strengths/weaknesses

  4. What's going on in the market 

Is there anything else I should consider? I heard there will be behavioral questions too, what specifically are they? I have been scrolling through several forums but the information was a bit outdated.

I don't understand why anyone would do a master program (won't opine on others but heard this one is primarily for IB). I had no prior experience in IB and got into a top group at mid-level BB during Covid. About everyone can get in IB now if you want.

Welcome input
