And you are already Matriculating! Awesome!


I had already decided, for the most part, if I got the call today that I'd be going to Kellogg. Not that I didn't love Darden, but it's a better fit for me. Darden definitely seemed to have more personal touches through the entire process, though.

I was told that all applicants get automatically considered for scholarships/fellowships.
No separate application is necessary.

I don't know if people just haven't updated the relevant field but there are currently only four people out of 80 admits who have reported receiving a scholarship! Here's to hoping that more people will get good (better) news!

Wait-listed here , they say we have to wait until the first week of April to get out waitlist manager name and contact ..

Anyone knows :

1- How many get off the wait list usually?
2- What counts as good updates to send to our waitlist manager

Hi QHSWS- there is a thread for Kellogg waitlisters on gmatclub; I suggest you check it out. Reading through the thread will give you an idea of updates they are looking for and what round 1 waitlisters have seen.

In regards to how many get off the list each year, it's unknown and frankly a fruitless exercise to try to find out. There are so many factors that go into it- how many total applicants they had, how many accepted students decline their offer, etc- that what may have held true one year is completely irrelevant the next.

Hi Everyone,

I am in a unique situation and need your help/ thoughts on this:

I had applied for a 2 year MBA, but have been waitlisted for 1 year program.

From what I see, I have 2 options:

Option 1. I point the error out to them.

I believe two things can happen here:

a. They might take me off the waitlist for 1 year (as they might feel I might not be interested in 1 year program) and reject me for the 2 year program as well to avoid the hassle.

b. They move me to the 2 year waitlist. In this case, my peer group would be different, evaluation process might be different, scoring might be different. I am not sure if they would re-evaluate me completely again. I dont know if this is even a possiblity.

Some basic stats from 2012:
1 year MBA: 500 applicants, 100 admits (I believe a higher quality apps here attributable to higher savings, lack of any alternatives in terms of 1 yr programs from other top schools)
2 year MBA: 4500 applicants, 550 admits

Option 2. I provide updates and reiterate an interest in 1 year program:

Not sure how this would work out. I am not sure how much movement there is on 1 year MBA waitlist. Kellogg pretty much has a monopoly in this space and there might be very few dropouts.

Any thoughts on how to proceed?

Wow! Unique indeed! Just my 2 cents.

You should definitely point the error out to them. If the error is completely on their side, they should move you to the 2 year MBA waitlist.

Expressing interest in the 1 year MBA program at this point does not sound like a good idea to me.

I agree with the previous comment - point out the error if it's on their end!

Hey guys,

Submitted my application for R3 and got an interview invite today with an alum. I am currently not in the country I requested to be interviewed in and so was thinking of asking for a waiver. The email said that it wouldnt affect my application negatively and they may give me phone interview from the adcom if need be.

My question: should i make the effort to go to the city I asked to be interviewed in OR should I tell them that I cannot make it for some reason and request for a waiver and subsequently a phone interview?
Also, have they actually seen my application at all before giving me an interview or do they just invited everyone? Makes me think as I had just applied 8 days ago.

I would do that which has a better impact on my application.

Thx

They haven't seen your application yet - if they grant an interview waiver they will begin reviewing your application and interview you if they like what they see the way other schools invite candidates to interview.

If you interview first, the input will be included with the rest of your application materials to be reviewed at the same time. Is asking for an interview in the current city you're in an option?

The question here is if you want to guarantee yourself an interview.

Unless it would be a serious financial burden, I would try to make it to the interview. For me, I thought my interview went so well that it made my application/candidacy stronger. If I had waived my interview, I don't know that I would've gotten an invitation to interview later.
