Just out of curiosity, for those that got the interview waiver, have any of you been asked for more information?

It's a little strange that no one has thus far reported an interview invite after a waiver until now. Last year, by 10th-11th nov, invites after waiver had started coming in. I received my invite after waiver on 16th Nov, and its already 19th - seems very odd. This week should see some movement for sure, else its going to be a tad bit too late for anything to really happen.

Also, any reapplicants (like me) here?

esport12 I havn't heard anything from them yet. Have you been asked for more information? If so it atleast means that they have started to review the application! Also depends what kinda information they are asking for, something that usually should have been stated in an app vs details.

I gather that most US schools will remain shut almost all week for thanksgiving (raincheck anybody?). If that is true I dont see any promising news before the 26th..

And the wait gets more excruciating.

I had my interview today on-campus. if you're interviewing on campus this week, you'll most likely be with an Admissions Officer since there are no classes this week.

I got asked all the standard questions (why Kellogg? strengths? time I failed? etc), but it was definitely a little different. The vibe with an Admissions Officer feels more formal, and while I think I did well, I really couldn't read my interviewer at all. But at least she seemed to take a copious amount of notes.

She also asked me a lot about my time during my undergrad years. I was a little surprised about this since I graduated from college over 10 years ago, but I managed to get through it.

Good luck to everyone.

I wouldn't hold my breath. The deadline for all R1 applicants to complete their interview is Dec 1, so I don't see Kellogg releasing a decision while there are still incomplete applications.

I'll echo what Ward said above. I was on campus today and also interviewed with an adcom member who took copious notes. It felt like we had a good rapport, but it's hard to tell.

I got asked all the why's (why undergrad, why your job, why MBA, why Kellogg) along with several team and leadership questions. Basically, if you do a search of common questions and prepare, you should be in pretty good shape.

Good luck to everyone through the rest of the process!

I was going through some materials from my Kellogg app to start an essay for one of my R2 apps and spotted a pretty glaring typo!!! Pretty much obvious I changed a sentence and didn't take out an extra word... "As I graduated with from xxxxx"

Kellogg's a reach school (and my major top choice) for me as is - Is this going to hurt me badly?

No. People have been admitted with worse typos than yours. If you don't get in this will not be the reason.

I think you should cut yourself some slack I doubt they will hold back an admit due to a small typo. They know you're human and anyone can make a mistake. So don't fret. It'll be ok as long as you conveyed the overall message well.

If it helps, I had a very similar typo in one of my Yale essays, and I still got an interview invitation.

As long as your application isn't riddled with typos, you're fine.

Thanks - three responses = reassuring. I am one of those borderline applicants with a lower than average UG GPA so I immediately turn negative with these things and think I am held to a higher standard (even with stuff like a typo).

I think other than that Kellogg was my very best set of essays so I hope it works out!

By the way, I had my interview with an alumn and I felt like it went great. I had a good convo with my guy, gave good answers, asked good questions that hit home for him, and felt like we connected, but also left wondering what that all meant - was my first b school interview and just wasn't sure what really constitutes a great interview!

It seems like a lot feel that way?

Best of luck to everyone!

Hello guys,

I was invited for Kellogg interview on 8th of Nov. My online account was earlier showing the message regarding my interview details. I have completed my interview, but somehow now my account shows no information on the interview or even the fact that my interview has been complete and a feedback has been received from my interviewer. Did anyone who has received and completed their interview got any update (mail) from kellogg or updates on their login account.

Thanks!

@newdreamer - No update via email or on the online account. The only text I notice on the online account is something to the effect of all parts of the applications have been received. Not sure whether this statement was there prior to my interview or not. Probably not.
