All - The complete status just means all pieces of you application are accounted for and the committee is not awaiting anything such as transcripts or gmat scores or recs. This is no indication of the interview being sent out. I would not worry about the interview notices as Kellogg will not even begin review until the waiver has been issued or invite been sent out. Receiving an invite from Kellogg is not an indication of your application unless you receive it after a waiver.

I would not read to much into this at all. Also Kellogg states somewhere on their site the review process for each applicant is 2 weeks long. I would say you have plenty of time before you need to worry about getting your invite. If you do not hear by the end of the month regarding a waiver or details about your interview, then I would contact admissions.

Good luck to everyone waiting for R2.

Hi Vibhav, appreciate your response. I'm not quite sure how no email from them is good news. Could you please explain? I was really keen on emailing them today; after reading your response, I am in two minds.

Bonnie, when did you email Ad com and when did you receive this email? Are you also too close to 2 months since you submitted part 1 but haven't heard back from them?


Onechance.. so the logic is that given that fact that you havn't received an email it means that they havn't decided yet.. i.e the chance of f2f interview is still open. (contrast this with an email saying anything else) So no email is also good! but nothing stops you from getting in touch with the adcom!I don't think it impacts your chances in any way.

Also i just checked my app status, it does not read completed.

Just read the last few posts and i am surprised at the amount of confusion Kellogg (and its emails) are creating!

So you have an interview invitation and your status does not read complete? Interesting.

I think the point of confusion is what constitutes "complete". Some folks would assume that, because of the nature of Kellogg's admissions process, an interview or a waiver is an integral part of the application. So how can your packet be complete if you haven't had an interview or a waiver?

Well it's 8 weeks today. Anyone planning to call or email Admissions?

Complete means they have looked at the package you submitted and ensured all pieces are their. The interview will critical to begin review, does not impact the complete status. That is also why there is the caveat stating that if your interview has been complete...

By all means, if you are concerned, please contact admissions to confirm.

I think I'm going to email Admissions in a couple of days.

Vibha, I see the point you make about not having received an email being a good thing. But I can only take so much silence. That's why I am inclined to wait a little longer, probably till the weekend, and email them, if necessary.

Healthcareguy, i wish i had already received the invite.. but truth is i'm also waiting! Also i think 8 weeks end on 14thFeb.. coz part 1 deadline was 14th Dec. As some of the official replies read, Kellogg does not read the applications in order of receipt, so i guess for them the 8week process starts after closure of part1 deadline. Correct me guys if i understand wrong.

Completed my interview recently. It was on campus with a member of the Admissions Committee. Pretty much the standard questions outlined by others.

This was my fourth interview (Tuck, Johnson, and Darden before this). Five months ago if you'd asked me whether open interviews were a good thing, I would have said yes. Now, having gone through two of them (Tuck also), I'd say I'm not really a fan. It's a bit of a cattle call. And you're shelling out a lot of money to travel before you even know whether the school has any interest in you (unless you select off-campus for Kellogg).

My interviewer tried to be nice, but for the most part she seemed distant. It was very tough to get a feel for whether anything resonated with her. The two schools that invited me to interview seemed more enthusiastic about conducting the interview because a couple people had already vetted the application and deemed you worthy of talking to. I got the feeling at Kellogg that some of the interviewers are tired, worn out, and just going through the steps in a very detached sort of way. Maybe I just caught her on a bad day, but it seemed to not jive with the overall Kellogg atmosphere.

I did really enjoy the school and my class visit. I'd be thrilled to get in.

I agree with you. With the schools from which I received an invite I know I have roughly a 40% to 60% chance of getting in. That makes it a lot easier to justify taking a day off work, and spending $400 to $600 on a flight and hotel. With the open invite, you have no idea if you are just spending more money for no reason. Besides, while my impression is the interview is important, it's more a bad interview can ruin a good paper application, than a great interview salvaging a poor paper application. If you are a ding before the interview, there's a likelihood you're a ding afterwards.

ok so now my app satus changed.. reads as below.

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 determined, the Office of Admissions will send you an email notifying you to check your status for your decision. Application decisions may be released on or before the decision deadline, but the majority of decisions will be released during the last few weeks of the round.

Please note that applications are not necessarily reviewed in the order received, and the timing of one's decision is not an indicator of a candidate's strengths or weaknesses relative to others who applied in the same round.

Hello guys, just to let you know that I sent an email to admissions to inform about the withdrawal of my application (R1 waitilist). I am international (Venezuelan) living in Spain. It was fun to share with you in this blog. Best!
