Hey everyone-
Just got back from my interview, I think it went pretty well. It was tough though, lasted about 45 minutes.

- Resume walk through
- What type of leader are you?
- What type of team member are you?
- Describe a failure either at work or undergrad.
- Why an MBA now?
- What is your ideal job?
- What do you do on the weekend?
- Tell me something about you that is not on your resume.
- Tell me about a positive and negative aspect about consulting industry.
- What types of clubs at Kellogg would you like to be involved in?
- What differentiates you from the rest of our [insert large consulting company name] applicants?
- Is your career progression at [insert company name] fast or typical? (I stumbled on this one, because mine was fast but I wanted to sound humble and I didn't pull it off well, sounded WAY too humble LOL ugh - I did explain what the duration usually is so hopefully it wasn't super bad).
- If there was one thing you could do differently during your undergrad what would it be.
- What's your strength and weakness as a team member?

I wasn't asked short or long-term goals, but insinuated them throughout the conversation. Talked about leadership and teamwork *a lot*.

Ok now I have to detox.

Does anyone know if Kellogg admits anyone w/out an interview? I received the lovely interview waiver email & haven't heard anything yet from them in the way of a phone interview as others have.

Thx.

As far as I know 100% of admits get an interview. Dont worry still plenty of time for the phone interview request. They are far from done with reviewing applications, so they may not have even gotten to yours yet.

River I have a specific question. I was just browsing through the Kellogg website and had a doubt : Is the course Global lab similar to GIM ? Basically are they two separate courses or two names for the same course ?

Not recruiting for it but I know deloitte has a big operations practice. McKinsey also hires for operations. There are others I am sure...not to the level of strategy but there are operations jobs.

Thanks River !

I had my interview yesterday on the telephone. Questions were similar to the ones already mentioned here. After the interview i was told that i would get my result in January. So no early results this season ?

Hi, I am in for R1 too.
I did interview with alumni. I am based in India. BTW, was curious to know how many Indians typically get into Kellogg? Just curious as I have non traditional profile and fall in older applicant category.
Thanks and best of luck to every one.

OMG i'm so pissed. Left my phone at my desk and returned to a missed call from "Unavailable" (which NEVER happens) around 4pm EST. My heart dropped as a hurriedly checked the voicemail.

Turns out it was Ann Taylor telling me about a sweater sale. damnit.

I think I have ulcer due to Earl Marsh-fiasco....

This was happening between the time Terp posted his 815 number call entry and up until 15 minutes ago:

Me: [constantly clicking and clicking to refresh my browser to see if Kellogg forum was updated]

Then my fingers started to hurt and I opened by Microsoft VB 2005 editor and started writing VB.net macro code for my internet explorer so this would automatically refresh every 5 seconds until I force stop it.

Then when terp said something about calling back 4 times but the line was busy....I began to think it really was Kellogg call - busy trying to contact other admits...

Then I realized my phone wasn't ringing....

I began to doubt and question myself:

"Maybe I wasn't good enough for Kellogg..."

"Perhaps I should have wore my lucky pink tie to my kellogg interview and that could have been the difference..."

"Stupid Dartmouth...if they admitted me back in 2001 as undergrad, i wouldn't have NYU on my transcript and I would look like better candidate.....hate you Tuck!!! No I don't...I take it back..I still love you ...until I get your reject letter...at least"

"Should I call Kellogg and pretend that someone from kellogg admin office just called but I missed it and Beth Flye left voicemail......."

Now I can breathe little easier.....but ulcer....I might have it.....or is this from that weird looking sandwich from lunch????

Since it appears as if admits have begun to (albeit slowly) roll out, I would assume that my chances of receiving the email for a telephone interview are slim to none. Perhaps a current student - river, steel, mgoblue - could confirm/deny my assumptions?

Hey coadman, I had my phone interview just completed on 2nd of Dec, so I wouldn't be discouraged just because some offers are released...

as far as I'm concerned, before the decision release date, you are still game.

Good luck to everyone!

On Accepted.com's chat last year, Beth flye said the acceptance rate is "similar to the 2Y program." I think it's about the same as 2Y, maybe a couple pts higher. There aren't any printed stats on this as far as I know.

re: applicant pool size -- I think it's about 250 or so, maybe higher this year.

Steel, River, or Soni:

Any idea how big the MMM applicant pool is? Not that it matters now but is it more competitive or less?? I know their entering class status are pretty much simular to rest of the school. MIT breaks out the number of LFM applicants per year but can't find details for MMM applications.

appreciate any insights.

I don't suppose anyone has heard on BW or elsewhere if any JD/MBA applicants have been admitted/dinged yet? I wonder if the timeframe for JD/MBA decisions are any different than regular 2 year MBA decisions.

I would think so. Doesn't law school admissions also have to review your app? This is in contrast to MMM, where the engineering school doesn't review the app and admissions is decided upon by Kellogg.

Does anyone else have this? wondering if my interviewer submitted his response.....

All the required elements of your application are complete.

If your interview has been completed, the application has been submitted for review to the admissions committee. If your interview has not been conducted, the application will be submitted to the admissions committee upon completion of the interview. The next status check update will be the admission decision (Admit, Waitlist or Deny). When a decision has been rendered, the Office of Admissions will send you an email notifying you to check your status for your decision. Decisions will be released throughout the round, but the majority of decisions will be released during the last several weeks of the round.

Well guys, I was in a work-related class all day (an awful, boring class), and came home to find the dreaded "Application Unknown" status waiting for me.

I logged back in a minute or two later, and got the ding.

I am very disappointed because Kellogg was my top choice, but at least I can take solace in the fact that I really put my best effort into the application. Oh well, I wish you all the best of luck with Kellogg, as well as with your remaining apps.

Time to ramp up my R2 apps!

Sorry to hear that man...Hope you get into your next school of choice..Good luck....

I believe this issue came up when someone posted a way to break into the HBS status computer - Somewhere in all the legalize there a blurb that says they have the right to change offers, change status, etc. So even if you get an email, they could change it, not honor it etc. In the HBS example, those that had an admit found a nice DING a little later.

I think trying to "force" them to honor an admit email is not even reasonable. As I'm sure we all know, email is easily spoofed -- I would just send myself the admit email then respond I accept, and voila' -- be in every school I choose.

For that matter, yes, Scarlett Johnason, I do want a bigger unit, and I'll be glad to call you and arrange a date -- cause your email said you'd hook up with me!

Later -- RJ
