Columbia MFE Columbia MFE Video Interview

Has anyone done the pre-recorded video interview for Columbia MSFE? If so, can you please let me know what to expect?

I got 3 behavioral questions.
Only one I remember is: "Describe a good book you read recently."
They will all be posed in sequence. Eg. "Tell me about yourself.", "What are your weaknesses?", "Describe a good book you recently read."
And you get around 3-4min to answer to all of them, no breaks in between.
Thank you.
So I guess one of the questions is about a book that I have read.
Does anyone have any ideas for the other 2 questions?
I would not bet on getting the same questions.
Think it's best to prepare for the usual behavioral type questions.
When did you guys apply ?
As I can see, the deadline to apply is 5th of Jan. Its great that you have received interview invites. Congrats.
Once you submit, you will get an email with a link to view your application checklist. The video interview link appears there.
