Getting a waiver is not a bad thing. It is not an indication of how Kellogg views anyone's candidacy. In fact, prior to issuing a waiver Kellogg has not even read the application. They issue waivers so that they can read the application w/out the interview. I would say that the majority of people who receive waivers later get invited for an interview.

Err on the side of ethics and inform Kellogg if they do assign you to an alum that you already know. They will find someone else or schedule a skype interview with an adcom.


Too late! Interview already complete. I met the alum at the Kellogg admissions event here in Dubai, so its pretty obvious that many of the applicants would have met him and conversed with him and its pretty obvious to the adcom also that many of the prospective applicants would have turned up at the admissions event and many alums would also have turned up and conversed with the prospective applicants.

If there should be no prior contact with the alum who is interviewing, then the whole set of alums who were present for the admissions event cant interview the applicants and that would completely make a huge chunk of Alums in-eligible to interview!. So the adcoms are pretty much aware of the alums at the admissions event interviewing the applicants who attended the admissions event. So, conclusion: No ethics violation here :).

Nevertheless, My interview is done and dusted! I cant do much but for wait. :)

I see that you have got into Kellogg and dropped in apps for R2. Is kellogg not your first choice?


Not that you need my blessing, but having met an interviewer before at an admissions event is not the same as "knowing" the person. "Knowing" the interviewer implies you are friends with him/her or worked with him/her before, which could give you an unfair advantage. I'm not sure there is an ethics problem in either case as long as your interviewer is objective (but that is on the interviewer not you), but there certainly isn't an issue if you met the person before at an admissions event.

Congrats on being done with your interview. I finished mine last week. Now the long wait.


In the case of the alum interviewer being a friend or coworker I do think it's the right thing to do to at least let Kellogg know. It may not be a big deal to them, but it's just good to be cautious about these things. That's all I was saying.

Interviewed off-campus today. It was like nothing mentioned on the forums, but thoroughly enjoyable. Got couple of brain teasers too with an option of choosing numbers based questions or computer science algos (CS undergrads both of us).

I had my interview yesterday. Lasted for an 1hr20min. I had prepared myself for the standard why MBA, why Kellogg, why now questions but the interview was more probing and deeper than I expected it would be. Oh well. It's all done.

For the MILLIONTH time I will reiterate this to EVERYONE who is waiting for Kellogg to set up the off campus interview:

KELLOGG DOES NOT ISSUE INTERVIEW INVITES BASED ON THE STRENGTH OF YOUR APPLICATION. YOUR APP IS NOT EVEN READ UNTIL THE INTERVIEW IS COMPLETE. THE ONLY EXCEPTION TO THIS IS IF YOU RECEIVE AN INTERVIEW WAIVER. A WAIVER IS NOT AN INDICATION OF THE STRENGTH OF YOUR APP. IT JUST MEANS THAT THEY ARE TAKING LONGER THAN USUAL TO GET AN ALUM TO INTERVIEW YOU AND WANT TO REVIEW YOUR APP WITHOUT THE INTERVIEW NOTES. IF YOU RECEIVE AN INTERVIEW AFTER RECEIVING THE WAIVER THIS IS THE ONLY TIME THAT YOU CAN TAKE IT AS A SIGN OF HOW KELLOGG VIEWS YOUR CANDIDACY. IF YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED AN INTERVIEW INVITE NOR A WAIVER IT SIMPLY MEANS THAT KELLOGG HASN'T GOTTEN TO YOU YET. THAT IS ALL!!! THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO BE WORRIED ABOUT.

I don't mean to yell but this has been stated repeatedly in this thread, yet people keep asking the same questions and making incorrect assumptions without even bothering to read just a few posts back from their own. I do not expect anyone to read through 70 pages of posts, but going back a page or two would suffice. People want to be helpful but it gets annoying when the same question is asked ad nauseum and the people who are asking don't bother to pay attention to the answer.

ETA: Large font and caps is just to make the post stand out so folks don't miss it. Important info that can save a lot of worrying.

Hey guys

If you go to Kelloggs full-time MBA program website, you'll see on the right-side panel an option for "Check Application Status." I'd post the link but this forum won't let me. In any case, you can log in and see what the status says there. Mine says "All the required elements of your application are complete."

Hope that helps.

Awesome, it seems like most folks in the US that first received a waiver, end up getting a phone interview

Hey Guys,

I had a strange interview experience. It was held at Airport (am an international applicant). My interviewer was very busy so I was called at airport and told that the interview wud be happening in a car as she had to reach somewhere soon. Then interview started on airport itself when she got out of airport .. as she started asking what I do there itself .. (with people going around us, with their baggages and excuse mes and other distractions also occuring like calling driver for car .. amidst my answer of work I do ... ) and then after 5-10 minutes we got into the car. In the car it was better but still I got the feeling that a better setting might would have helped. I was getting distracted a bit by traffic and had to turn to look at her and reply. Well I was able to reply most of her answers as I had prepared but never felt great about interview, also sent her a thanku not and didnt get a reply (well she was not replying to my mails earlier also). Dont know what to make of this interview (most questions were standard, and I had prepared for them ... but really no idea how the vibe went and how much the interview matters for in Kellogg ..

Please throw some light on it. Also please tell if you feel I should be informing adcom about this interview .. as I felt I could have done better had it been in a restaurant .. Can anything help my cause now ..

It looks like in 2011 calls began two weeks before the decision date for both rounds 1 and 2. In round 2 of this year, calls began only a week before, so who knows.

I know it's finals week this week so to the extent they use students to make the calls, it may be more likely they start next week. That is complete speculation though.


Students do not make the calls. The adcom does.


Thanks, that makes sense. Am I correct that in R1 calls started 7 days before the decision deadline in R1 of this year? I'm basing that off of a quick browse through this thread.


There were random/unconfirmed reports of a call or two about 10-12 days prior to the decision deadline. However, the first reported call on GC was the on the 12, 7 days prior to the R1 deadline day.

People, calls do not go out by time zone. Kellogg is EXTREMELY random with how calls are completed. Acceptances/Dings/Waitlist notifications will go out throughout the week. If you are accepted your online status usually updates within a day or two of the call. Hopefully EVERYONE sees this so we don't have the same questions being asked a million times.

Just missed a call from 847 491-8696. Is that Kellogg? They didn't leave a message. I really hope they call back. I'm already looking for places to live in Evanston.

congrats to all who received the news

for those still waiting, any idea what % hope we should have?! how many of people who will receive admits received a call today? ideas? theories?


My theory is that approximately 1/2 of total applicants accepted are in R2. So that makes it about 550 ppl for adcom to call. Assuming that 2 people simultaneously made calls for about 6 hours today, at the rate of about 20 calls/hr (3 min average/call, incl time for call to go through etc), this amounts to about 240 calls made by adcom today. That leaves room for more than 1/2 of us still waiting to hear from adcom. Ofcourse, all this is just speculation and more than 2 ppl could be making calls today but then i am looking for every ray of hope to cling onto my Kellogg Dreams. If i haven't heard from adcom by this time tomorrow, i would probably give up on it.

Just got the call. As pleasing as it is for me, I wanted to tell folks who were dinged that its not the end of anything. Most of you have terrific scores, outstanding accomplishments and deserve to get into top programs.

Keep applying and keep the faith. I know that is what I would've done if I hadnt been called.
