Oh if they havent even seen my application yet, making the effort of going to another country for an interview is asking for a bit much. I would have been more enthusiastic to travel if i knew i was among the shortlisted ones.

Leaning more towards asking for a waiver. As it is they say that it would not affect my application negatively. And am not so sure that I can dazzle them in my interview to put me up a notch.

And no..asking for another interview location is not an option. They say the locations are final. The only next option is a waiver.

I submitted part 2 five days ago.

Does anyone know if the portal closes exactly at 11:59 cst? If we are logged in at that time, are we able to upload documents after 11:59?

I'm obviously a little behind the ideal schedule. Thanks!

Thanks! I was able to get it in, but just received an interview waiver :(. I am in NYC, so not remote. Hoping I might get a phone interview because I would really love the opp to interview.

I am relatively new to this thread. Did many people receive phone invites after an initial waiver in previous rounds?

I submitted R3 applicantion on the deadline, and received an interview invite over the weekend. Interesting, that you live in NYC and received a waiver - I would imagine that there are lot of alums in your area. Maybe, your profile is strong enough even w/o an interview, so they just trying to save themselves some time.

I appreciate the optimism, but I'm thinking the opposite (unfortunately).

Hey guys. Thought I'd throw this out there, not sure if anyone will be able to help me. I don't know if I've seen any current students on here recently, but if not maybe some others have encountered the answer to my question through their research.

So my main goal with bschool is to transfer into brand management for a food company. However, I also would prefer to be in NYC area after school. In looking through Kellogg's employment report and googling (ie stalking) the names of people who are employed in companies that I'm interested in (ie Pepsi and Mars) it looks like nearly all of them are in the Chicago offices. The only person in the NY office at Pepsico is in a finance role.

So my question is: what is the on-campus recruiting like for NY area based consumer products/marketing jobs? Do certain companies only recruit for specific offices? What about posted jobs, are there a lot for NY based positions? Would appreciate any help!

Just a quick question:

I had requested an off-campus interview and was excited to get an alumnus in my preferred post MBA industry. Anyway, they were not available so I spoke with Admissions and they said they were looking for another alumnus. Now two days later they simply cancel my interview letting me know that this won't impact my application in any way.
I'm not really sure what to make of this, is this just very normal or should one be worried?
After all I was looking forward to finding out a few things about Kellogg first hand - that doesn't happen and that's fine but I think it is irritating that a decision is now made based on paper only...
Anyone in a similar situation here?

Submitted for R3, and interviewed on campus last Friday with 2nd year MBA student. Let's see what happens...seems like Kellogg really cares about how you fit...I was lucky enough to go on the same weekend as "Day at Kellogg" aka "DAK"....so I got to meet a bunch of current students and even some of the admitted students (most of them were still deciding between Kellogg and other schools such as Sloan, Wharton, and Booth).

I think you need not worry. I interviewed with an alum last week and he told me that the application is a very important aspect of admissions. He has been interviewing ever since he graduated 3 years ago and had several cases where he strongly recommended candidates and they didnt get in while those candidates that he was neutral about, got through. Since they lay so much of weight on the essays, it is in fact good that you will have to go through the hassle of interviewing (phone) only when you are shortlisted. Ofcourse, if you were confident of blowing the interviewer's mind off, I can see your concern. :)


Well...not sure. I think it certainly helps with an application if one gets recommended. And there would have been chance for bombing an interview with an alumna/us but I think chances are slim. To me this is more of a personal fit interview and I think I would have liked the chance to raise my questions with someone who went through the programme already rather than speaking with Admission.

However, I'll just wait and see but kudos for your input!

I received an interview waiver because of lack of an alum in my area. Do they ask people for a last minute Skype interview if they're considering admitting you? So if I don't get asked, it means that I'll be getting a "No"? Or do they actually admit people without an interview at all?

Mine was waived as well. I am pretty sure that no one would be admitted without an interview. From the research that I've done, it seems that if they like your written app, they will set up a phone interview. However, I feel that this window in rapidly closing if it hasn't already. :(

Ugh this sucks. I'm re-taking the GRE end of May, but Kellogg is not going to look at that score, since they will be rendering decisions by May 15th, and they're not willing to "hold" my decision either. Worst part is, Kellogg does NOT have a wait list for R3, so it's either accept or deny...and they'll be weighing it based on my current scores. I did have a strong interview though. Let's see what happens....all I've been getting are wait-lists and dings so maybe I'll finally get a yes.
