Sample Question #217 (statistics)
Tell me everything you know about extreme value theory.
(Comment: this is a cross between a technical question and a case question. It’s technical because it covers a specific quantitative topic, that of extreme tail risks. It’s case-type because it’s an open-ended question and you probably don’t even need to provide technical details. If you’re asked to "talk about what you know about XXX theory," use this approach: what problem does the theory try to solve, what assumptions is the theory based on, and what general techniques/models does the theory employ, and what kind of criticism is out there in the literature either for or against the theory.)
