I contacted Kellogg about my situation (currently deployed in Afghanistan). They responded: they're waiving the interview requirement - according to Kellogg, the "interview waiver will not negatively affect [my] application." If they feel that an interview is necessary to render a decision, they will contact me and set something up. So here's to hoping they're not BS'ing me!


From my understanding, Kellogg require the interview component completed before they will review your file. So waiving your interview would mean that they will proceed to review your file, and if (hopefully when) they decide not to ding you, they will interview you via Skype/phone. I could be wrong here, but that's what I understand of the process.

So, don't worry about it. You should get the call soon enough. Good luck! :)

Yes, Kellogg interviews everyone where possible. On the application form you chose your preference of on-campus or off-campus. In countries/locations with high demand like India where there may not be enough alums for all applicants, some applicants will get waivers.

Here are more details on Kellogg's interview policies.

I opted for off campus interview in US. Ad com today waived my i/v as there is no alumni available in the requested area.
I also have video essay waiver due to issues with essay recording.
What are the chances?

I am really worried now. I'll call ad com tomorrow to discuss my options.

I am told that applicant can't ask for telephonic i/v. if ad com feels then it will do it.

Anyone has a clue on this now?

I'm sure you thought of this already, but can you fly to Chicago and interview on campus? I know there's obviously a time and monetary cost to it, but that might be your best option.

So, I had my video essay waived, but just received an email encouraging me to submit it by November 4th as it's now working. Argh! Did anyone else get it waived and receive this email?
