quick question for the people online..

did you submit your gmat score report for kellogg.

it says If you have access to your GMAT test score, please upload your score report. Uploading an electronic copy of your official test scores is not a required element of the application, but may help expedite the processing of your application.

My report has the other schools I sent it to - do I want them seeing that???? Will they see it anyway when GMAC sends them the official report???

Upload only the first page of your score report. You can extract the first page using Adobe Acrobat. I dont think schools you send your official report to can see the other schools you are submitting your scores to. And even if they did, it doesnt matter - every school knows you are applying elsewhere as well. Whether you applied to a HBS, Cornell, Tuck etc. along with Kellogg won't affect your chances in any way.

I uploaded just the first page, which has the scores. I would doubt that GMAC would send the list of the schools to every school we choose to report our scores to. The official report would be different than the unofficial report we get from GMAC. My two cents.

Good luck to everyone here!!

I had interview with alumnus in hong kong, and it was pretty casual and conversational.
He asked me what I would do in next 5 years after MBA, community activity, greatest achievements, any difficult situation i dealt with at work, which is pretty generic questions you can easily expect: there is no curve ball type questions at all.

He was willing to share his MBA life at Kellogg, and the more I listen, the stronger my desire for the school.

Now I am done with everything I can do for admission with interview and part 1 and 2 which I already submitted.

And just waiting part is left until mid-Dec. phew.

Now that the deadline is just hours away, does anyone know if Kellogg has a grace period for recommenders? One of mine still hasn't submitted (despite multiple reminders :) ), and I'm hoping I won't be pushed to R2 if worst comes to worst.

I don't know about Kellogg specifically, but I know Admissions Directors at other schools have told us in info sessions that they generally give a grace period of about a week

Does anyone know how to schedule On-Campus interview?
I just submitted Part I & II yesterday. It says waiting for 2 business days after submitting to call Adcom.
Do I get a Email from Kellogg Adcom saying "please call us"?

Good to hear that the interviews have gone well so far. I'm planning to apply in R2.

What is the best play on submitting P1 for the interview slot? Is it to submit earlier to make sure you don't get waived (i assume getting waived is bad?) Also, could you just mitigate any risk of getting waived by submitting later, but for on campus?

I see two options:
1) Submit this week for a local interview
2) Submit anytime for an on campus interview

If someone can help answer my questions and verify these options, it would be greatly appreciated. Not sure if I should apply now, b/c my promotion can come in any time in the next 2 to 6 weeks; am waiting in case it happens prior to the deadline.

Pearls of wisdom anybody?

It does not matter. Getting waived is not a bad thing. You could submit Part 1 the day the application goes live and still receive an interview waiver. All an interview waiver means is that they currently do not have an alum available to interview you. In order to not hold up the review of your application (Kellogg does not start reading your app until the interview is complete) they waive the interview requirement so they can begin reading your app. If after reading your application they want to know more about you (which is normally the case) they will invite you to interview.

Here's my view on interview waivers. Are they nerve wracking? Yes. However, receiving a waiver is probably the only way to get some indication of how the admissions team is feeling about your application. If you don't receive an interview invite you pretty much know it's game over. However, if you do receive the invite you at least know that your application was strong enough to warrant further review. For people who either interview on campus or do not receive a waiver for the off campus interview they really have no signals as to where they might stand until the decision is rendered. Hope this helps.



Hi.. I submitted Part I of my application on the 18th of September and then Part II on the 15th of October. I have requested an off-campus interview and still have not received any communication yet.
Is it bad news for me?


Allow upto 8 weeks after submitting part 1 to hear on an interview assignment. Last year, I submitted part 1 in sep and got an interview invite in Nov. the waiting is tough but, atleast in some cases - the ones where you get an interview, its worth it.

Thanks!! May I ask what do they look for in Part I of the application before they schedule an interview. And what are the prospects of Indian applicants with this regard.

Does anyone know if I would receive an Email saying "Interview Invite" for the On-Campus Interview?
I submitted both Part 1 & 2 on 10/14/2012? When do I expect to see Email from Kellogg Adcom? Or should I just give adcom a call to request interview?

Thanks

Does anyone know what getting an interview actually means for Kellogg? A bit unique that they hand out interviews, before getting your essays.

I know with other top schools, if you get an interview that can mean you have a >50% chance at getting in, but I was under the impression that Kellogg interviews almost everyone. Anyone know anything about this?

Thanks.

You are right ... Kellogg does interview everyone or at least tries to ... the only reason for not getting an interview is if u live in an area of high demand for interviews and thus kellogg might not have enough alumni to cover everyone ... in that case you will receive an interview waiver, adcom will go through your profile and if they like you schedule an interview with you then ... so other than this case of waiver followed by an interview call, getting a kellogg interview doesn't really mean much.

How can I schedule On-Campus interview with Kellogg? I just submitted part i and ii today.
Do I need to wait for them to send me an Email? or should I call them up myself after 2 business days?

Hi,

I have just submitted my application. When I log into the 'View application' section, I see that I successful submitted the application. I got an Email from Kellogg saying that my application was successfully submitted. The mail also provided me with a link to check status of my application. when I click the link and provide my user Id and password, it says 'password wrong'.

Is this a bug or will it take a couple of days to get updated?

Thanks.

Hi Guys

I submitted my Part 1 on 18/09/2012 and part II on 15/10/2012. I havent yet heard back anything about my off-campus interview. I am applying from India and am wondering whether other Indian students have got their interview calls yet or is the school doing it zone-wise and yet to reach us?
