I had my off campus interview recently. It was at a restaurant with a sweet ocean view and lasted for about 1 hr 45 min.

Now I need to find something shiny to distract myself with for the next month!


Wow an hour and 45 minutes. Sounds like you held your own. Congrats on being done. A month is nothing to wait (and based on Round 1 calls started coming out a week before the final date). I interviewed back in mid January. Talk about a long wait!


Thanks, yeah I realize there are others that have been waiting for much longer. I know it technically doesn't matter but there is something disconcerting about that fact that they probably are reviewing my file this week or the next while they have already looked at the majority of the other applications. It's like being the last one to show up to class, you always wonder if you missed something :)


Hardly. I'm not sure but I don't think that Kellogg is admitting people (i.e. filling up seats) as their interviews are complete. They aren't a rolling admissions school. From what little I do know the committee meets closer to the deadline when the majority of interviews are finished and that's when decisions are made. Heck, last year they were still making decisions as admit calls were going out. I don't think you're at any disadvantage to candidates who interviewed earlier. Good luck. Hope your phone rings in a few weeks.

Hi All,
Thanks so much for making GMAT Club the place for MBA-ers,
On Kellogg phone interviews, mine is scheduled for this Friday. Wondering wether I should send a thank you not to the general adcom email, or just leave it, I am also concerned I may not be able to clearly capture the spelling of my interviewer's name.


No need to send the adcom a thank you note for the interview invite. If you can get your interviewer's contact info feel free to send a short thank you.


Thenks for your reply,

Regards

Hi Shobhit, any word from the Financial Aid office on the availability of non-cosignor loans for internationals?


Hi onechance,

This is a big misconception about Kellogg. A lot of international students are in the process of applying for a loan with Kellogg and it is really a simple process. Please check the link below:

http://bit.ly/xN0WOk

The only downside to this loan is that the interest rate is 7.5%; otherwise it is as normal as any other loan.

Regards,
Shekmba



@onechance: No change in the policy this year. I guess Kellogg needs to do a better job of clarifying this misconception.

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 ..

Although the questions may have been standard, I'd say the interview that you went through was more of a stress interview, which puts an interviewee in an unusual or "stressfui" situation where an interviewer observes how interviewee handles him/herself. Seems like you handled yourself pretty well despite all the distractions.

I don't know, but if my interviewer switched up on me like that, I'd have sent an email to the school and request a waiver or something. If waiver was not a possible, well, I'd still inform the school of what happened (or in this case, I think the interviewer, as a courtesy, should mention something to the school on your behalf).

Mine was unusual, too, but nothing like what you went through. My interviewer asked, or rather challenged, as to why I want an MBA, etc. He was also late and my interview ended in like 25 mins because he was pretty busy. No response to a thank you email either. Some people are just busy, but I don't think that should negatively effect your chance of getting accepted if you answered the questions asked in organized, clear, and consistent manner.

Wow! I've never heard of anything like this before. When I read this the first thing I thought was, "that's totally inappropriate for an interview." You don't make a candidate follow you through an airport and drive with you wherever while conducting an interview. This isn't the movie Wall Street. You're not some eager kid looking for a shot at the big leagues who tracks down a CEO and only has 5 minutes in the back of a limo to seal the deal. Okay, obviously I watch too many movies, but you get my point.

While other people have interviews in coffee shops, offices, restaurants, and at Kellogg you had to interview in a place with a million and one distractions. If your interviewer had to travel then the interview should've been rescheduled. Kellogg really needs to keep a tighter rein on its alum interviewers. I would definitely let the adcom know what happened. Even if you don't get to reinterview it might help them get tighter guidelines for how alum interviews are to be conducted.

I'm in the exactly same situation. Is that MIT you're taking about? because I also have to make the deposit till 23 March and in my case the other option is Sloan. I would still prefer MIT though, but it's hard to make up your mind when you don't have all the info at hand :-/

In round 1 it looked like calls start coming in a week before the decision date, but a fair amount were on the decision date or a day before.

Hi,
Anyone get a status update on their application after the interview has been completed?

I see a generic message - "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"

I had interviewed in R1, but did not end up submitting my application until R2.

Hi masqueraderus - I've completed my interview as well. I submitted and interviewed in R2. I have had the same message before and after the interview, so I don't think there will be a new status till decision time.
