Unfortunately, I am not in a position to reveal such information nor would it be fair to those who interviewed without such knowledge.

Yes frozen, this. Those interviews are not for employment, they are for admissions. If you check the employment threads, you don't see people revealing the questions they were asked at OCI to the same people that are competing for those OCI jobs. You being more prepared would hurt us because we were not given the luxury of knowing the questions before hand.
Mandy, not you specifically, but the reluctance, generally.
Has it come to this yall? I found this same thing frustrating when I was asking questions about my upcoming interview. This is the type of zero-sum mentality that I'll run away from in law school. I'm competitive to the core, but confident enough in my own performance/abilities to help someone else out when they're asking for help. In the law school context, if Frozen asks me for notes from a class that he missed, I'm guessing I should withhold it because it can effect the curve (and, by extension, my job opportunities)? In this instance, if he is well-prepared for his interview, I should think it's going to hurt my chances of getting a job? Stop the madness. If he were asking for answers, that would be one thing. But here, he's asking for clarification of what such a question/process might look like.
I've already PM'd Frozen about my own generic interview experience and I'm not worried that he/she's gonna take my spot (or will put me at a competitive disadvantage). I fully understand the zero-sum calculation, but let's not be so naked about withholding help to a fellow URM who's asking for an explanation of what to expect in an interview. In my opinion, part of what makes our thread more enjoyable than others is that it is less prone to the guarded "i-need-to-look-out-for-mine" mentality.
Just my own perspective though.
That being said, I'll apologize for the RetroGohan-esque post. Much love and let's keep the good news comin'!
