Got the notification yesterday. Was wondering if anyone has completed their Kellogg interview yet? If so, do post!

I did. :)

I did so-so at best.

They kept it easy and light though, I was just too darned nervous.

A mixed bag I think.

On the one hand, I had great answers for some questions. On the other hand, I was nervous - a side of this is that I tend to look behind someone or focus on something else when answering, so my eye contact was likely a bit poor.

Things that went well:
Why an MBA, why now, why kellogg, What do you like to do in your spare time?
Kept the conversation light and easy. He didn't "grill me".
Interview lasted about an hour and twenty minutes, which could be a "good thing". Or could be a reflection of overly long winded responses that weakened my application.
Was able to "connect" on marketing issues.

Things that went poorly:
Weak eye-contact on my part.
Probably clear I was nervous, though I imagine most people are. I was fine until it actually started.
Some answers were likely a little long winded and overly verbose.
It was likely clear that I struggled with one or two questions

Overall Assessment: B-

Strongest element:
I think I conveyed my passion for Kellogg well.

Weakest element: Not a single question about my actual work experience - that is, nothing like "what is it that you do?" or "tell me about a leadership experience" or anything along those lines. This is probably my greatest concern.

last point in your post - I would not worry that much. I know a guy who got in Wharton after spending an hour of the interview discussing diving and little else :)

I am definitely not. 8-)
My K interview still not scheduled. The alumnus is on a business trip :?
BTW, did you dress all proper, suit and tie and likes?
Still need to buy me a suit. Got an assortment of trousers and jackets, but grown out of my suits. Damn that beer! :lol:

My interviewer specifically said to wear whatever I wanted because he'd be in jeans. I wore a dark pair of zegna pants - not khaki's - and a light white button down shirt with very light blue stripes, an awesome zegna sport coat on top and something akin to boating style shoes but in an italian leather. It was a decidely european look, which is what I was going for.

You've got style, man! :wink:
Pity though, zegna is not the best fit for me, they aim at slightly shorter men than me :(

You sure? I'm 6 foot 1, they fit fine.

Armani on the other hand is a no go for me, it seems to be made for people built differently. Don't know what it is about that, I'm not mishapen in any wierd way except for the third foot coming out of my forehead, but other than that, I'm normal. Some reason armani always just looks "wrong" on me.

Zegna, Loro Piana, Hugo Boss all work well. Favourite ties are Hermes.

If you haven't checked out Loro Piana, have a look next time, they make great stuff and, rarely, but occasionally you can find them on sale.

Knock em dead.

Ask him early in the interview if he can drop you off at "red army headquarters" afterwards. If he looks surprised, tell him you work for the Ministry of Defense at Biopreparat headquarters, and teh commander of the Fifteenth Directorate, Lieutenant General Vladimir Lebedinsky is expecting you. Make sure you mention you know the General from your days working together outside of Moscow in Omutninsk. At the time your focus was anthrax development at three primary production facilities in Penza, Kurgan, and Stepnogorsk.

If your interview seems perplexed, say something like "Don't worry, I'm sure this interview will go fine. Much better than the one I had with Georgi Markov in 1978."

End obscure references: Now mabe one or two of you will get this joke, the rest wont.

Not as impressed as I was. I just played along, but you must have had a hard time studying Eastern European history... or reading Tom Clancy :wink:

Interview....postponed.

In a good way, gives me more time to prepare.

In a bad way, gives me more time to get nervous.
