Kellogg Interview Done with [#permalink] New post 20 Nov 2006, 17:53
Well finally had the Kellogg interview this evening. Went average I'd say, which is prob not a good thing for my app :(

Anyways, met at a Borders. Interview lasted 1hr 20 mins, it was a very tough interview I would say. A lot of Why? What do you mean? abrupt type questions and it didn't help that he was in Mgmt Consulting and thats what I want to do post MBA.

His last question was the worst. It was simple enough - List the top 3 bullet points on why Kellogg should admit you. Well, the way the interview was going thus far, I knew that my standard responses would have been cut short by him, so I was trying to come up with things on the top of my head and it just was painfully long. Ugh. :(

Oh well, at least its done with!


Old Post:

Seriously, this is getting weird and crazy. This is my Kellogg interview history:

1) First interview with Alum A - Postponed. Ok thats fine, he told me a day in advance.

2) Second interview with Alum A - He never shows up and does not return my calls. Okkkk, a bit strange, but hey things happen.

So I call Kellogg and get another Alum. They do apologize and say "this is a first"

3) Third interview with Alum B (Today, 1.5 hr ago) - HE DOESN'T SHOW UP. I called his cell/work, left messages, nothing. I even asked someone at the bookstore to use her computer so I could check if he sent a last minute e-mail. Nothing.

I am sending Alum B an e-mail now. Lets see if he at least responds. :(

How is your profile like?

What type of test is this by ignoring people? It would piss me off. Any future business leader needs to take action. So if I were you, I would take some action. Not that I know what action to take.

Haha, well I don't think this guarantees me admission nor is it a test. I mean who has the time to mess around.

My profile: M/26/5 years WE/740.

Will wait to hear back from him today, if not I am going to call the office again and let them know my displeasure.

Ok, well he just e-mailed. He apologized profusely and said he simply forgot after a busy day of work. He wants to schedule next week.

What do you think guys? Should I let him off the hook? :wink:

What I find useful in these situations is to send a reminder the day before the scheduled interview. I have followed this practice and have yet to encounter someone who stood me up. Usually, people will cancel if they can't make it.

Make sure you send an email/phone call reminder to your interviewer the day before the interview.
