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


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


That's not entirely true. I got my call 2-3 weeks before the decision date. Needless to say it was a complete surprise. Then again they might have changed it in the last 2 years.

Interesting - I reached out to my interviewer, and he no longer lives in my state! Hopefully, I'll get matched to someone else soon (and still have the whole 14 days). :)

For people who have chosen on-campus option, are we supposed to call them to schedule one or wait for an email inviting us to interview with them?

You are supposed to call before October 31st to schedule your on-campus interview. See link and scroll down to the section that says "on-campus interview" http://www.kellogg.northwestern.edu/pro ... -2013.aspx

Seems like there is an interesting pattern in the 'MBA concentration' of the 7 applicants who have been invited so far. 5 of them have mentioned 'Strategy' while the rest 2 have not mentioned anything (strategy again maybe?). Or is that mere coincidence ?

Honestly, I think that's a coincidence and also reflective of the fact that Strategy is a popular concentration. But who knows.

Hi all,
Had a couple of questions. I'll truly appreciate a response.
I have submitted my application for the 1Y program. Can anyone please tell me:

1. Historically, what are the approx number of applications for the 1Y program (for a total of 100 seats)
2. How many confirmations do they make and how many do they put on waiting-list (specific to the 1Y please)
3. Does the selection of a specialization - Strategy/ Marketing/ Finance have any material impact on the application
4. I submitted my application on the 15th of October, but had put in my off-campus preference (Kuwait) way before (arnd 2nd September). Moreover, they had approved that I meet the eligibility criteria on the 5th of September. I am quite confused with the Part-1/ Part-2 submission thing, as the only submit button I found on the application form was at the end.

Thanks,
Intern

Hi-
I am also a 1Y applicant that just submitted my app last week. I don't think Kellogg publishes most of the information you are asking about in Questions 1&2 but their class profile page gives some rough indications:
http://www.kellogg.northwestern.edu/programs/fulltimemba/about_our_students/incoming_class_profile.aspx

That page is outdated (2012 Entrants) but indicates ~5000 total applications, of which ~4500 were for 2Y and MMM program, so the # 1Y applicants was probably less than 500. I don't think specialization matters unless they are trying to diversify and balance the class profile.

For #4, Kellogg used to have a 2-part application where you would ask for interviews and pay for the app in part 1 (normally due in Sept) but this year they consolidated both parts into one (due in Oct). I don't think they would start to look for interview pairings until you submit and pay for the application, even if you already received eligibility confirmation awhile ago, so I wouldn't have expected you to receive communication prior to this week.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for your reply.
So 450 applicants for 100 + 50 (wl) seats?
That's a 33.33% chance.
I hope we make it.
