I didn't add them in professional XP section, just under my undergraduate experiences as line items.

Guys, any thoughts on whether the school prefers on-campus vs off-campus interviews? I know they say they don't.....but what do you guys think?

I really don't think they care, especially with a school like Kellogg that has such enthusiastic alums. That said, there are differences between the two. On-campus tends to be with an admissions officer (although during busy time, Kellogg uses 2nd year students too), so you'll be talking with a decision maker, which, if you make a good impression, is to your advantage.

But what I found also for me is that the on campus interviews are much less stressful. I found that the on campus interviews were much more predicatable in terms of questions asked, format and time allotted. Alumni interviews can be a crapshoot. You could hit it off great with an alumnus and speak for two hours (and if the alum is a big donor, even better.) Or you could get an alum who has a chip on his shoulder and is out to make the applicant's experience miserable. Also, personally, I like having an interview in an office at the admissions office. I've heard of alumni interviewers hosting applicants in a Starbucks or even in his/her home, which I think is really weird.

anyway, that's just my opinion. I know others prefer alumni interviews.

According to this article, Kellogg is saying roughly 8% of R1 applicants received a waiver for the video. That's a smaller percentage than I would have thought.

Got an email today to schedule my off campus interview! I guess submitting by Kellogg's recommended date wasn't necessary after all. For those of you who have interviewed - any tips? Also, is it true that almost all applicants are offered an interview?

I am copying a post from last year's thread, hope this will be helpful to Indian applicants (note that this is not my insight but of the guy who posted this):

str1der wrote:

To everyone applying from India. I am a reapplicant and hence am acquainted with how the process works. Let me detail it as I am sure it will calm some nerves:

1. Kellogg, by design, interviews each applicant. However, in areas of high demand of interviews such as India, it is not possible for them to match their alumni to each applicant as each alumni can do only as many interviews
2. Once both Part 1 and Part 2 are submitted, one of the following three scenarios will occur:

i. You will be invited to interview on a day in late Oct/Early Nov. This is essentially an interview day - many alumni will gather at a hotel and many applicants will be interviewed. No clear formula on how the invitees are decided, but I think it depends on who submtited Part 1 earlier as from Kellogg's vantage point everyone has to be interviewed and hence no one is at a higher or lower priority at that point. Once the interview has been completed, the adcom will review your essays and recommendations and you then sit tight until the decision date to hear back from them.

ii. You will get an interview waiver. The Kellogg team does NOT read an applicant's file until their interview is complete. Hence, to avoid delays, they start reading the application first for those in India who weren't sent invited in the first go. The waiver does NOT affect your application negatively - it just means that they are waiving your interview in order to begin reviewing your application

iii. If they like your application, you will receive an invitation to interview. This will be a one to one with an alumnus here, or a Skype with the adcom in Chicago

iv. It may also happen that you don't get this invite after the waiver, in which case it is safe to assume you have been dinged

3. Hence, unlike other countries, in India Kellogg does NOT interview everyone. Also, most people receive a waiver which can then convert/not convert into an interview invite at a later stage.
4. You will NOT be admitted to the program without an interview. Hence, if after the waiver you do not receive an invite, it means you have been dinged.
5. Dates: Please read last year's thread. If I recall correctly, people received the first invites 2 weeks after the Part 2 deadline. People who first received a waiver and then an invite (such as me) kept hearing throughout November. I got my invite around Mid Nov.
6. Hence, if by end Nov you haven't heard from them after a waiver, safe to move on to alternate plans
7. Most people in India will get a waiver - it will test your nerves (tested mine) but it is actually a blessing in disguise. If you receive an invite after a waiver, that means the adcom liked your application and wants to know more - that is a positive sign any day of the year

Hope this answers your queries. Indian applicants should NOT compare their interview timeline to foreign applicants.

The real-time applicant stats on Kellogg's page shows '1' already admitted :-). That seems interesting.

Not yet for me ( I submitted my application 2 weeks ago ). In the email I received from Kellogg it is mentioned it can take up to 6-8 weeks, so I wouldn't stress to much for the moment. The number of alumni/candidates in the city you want to be interviewed in has also an impact on that.

Has to be a typo. The earliest you can get a confirmed admit is about 1 week from the decision date.

Yep, Kellogg interviews everyone, unless it is very late in the game and/or it is an off-campus interview and they can't pair you up with an alumni in that region. It is also a blind interview, so purely based on your resume.
