curious to know whether getting invited for an off campus interview at kellogg is any indication that one has passed the initial profile screening? guess it would be hard to answer but based on past experiences if anyone can take a jibe at answering this that would give me false hopes :)

Hi Viper,
R1 admit here.
This has been a year on year concern if you read through previous posts, but try and see things this way:
1. Kellogg wants to interview every applicant.
2. In areas of high demand ( many applicant vs few or no alumni interviewer), some applicants will receive interview waivers. I guess this is rolled out a first come first served.
3. For applicants that received waivers, if Kellogg likes the rest of your app material, they will then extend an invitation to interview (usually phone with an adcom).
4. For reapplicants interviewed within the last 18 months, (and this is just my guess cause I felt in this case), they may waive your interview regardless of wether your asked for one, and it is not likely that they will extend it later, yet don't assume it's a ding.

So unless you fall in the 3rd bullet above, there is no single reason to believe that an interview is a good sign.

For 4th bullet, the reapplicant above will be waiting til the day results are out before he hears about the outcome.
But, and in any case, every admit has been interviewed.

I submitted part I for R1 deadline (September) but then have decided to wait with it, and submitted part II for R2, and was told that my application will be considered for R2.

I don't quite understand what to expect regarding decision dates. When am I suppose to get interview request/waiver? Kellogg website mentions something similar to "8 weeks after submitting part I, with a preference to those who also submitted the second part". My 1st part is 4 months old now...

@cymin - thanks for your reply. I'm a reapplicant who had requested an off campus interview and actually received an invite. So technically I'm not sure whether i fall in one of the categories you mentioned. Anyway thanks for your insights

Great my friend,
I was waitlisted from last year hence felt Kellogg pain til June..lol
At least you know from the above insight and your current situation that your only guess is no guess, you know what categories you can offset, still you stand the same chances of getting in/being dinged/being waitlisted.
Good, Kellogg does respect your continuous interest in the school, still you can't guess until March 21st.

Good luck to all, once you've hit submit and interviewed, relax!!! Stress won't dare help.

@FuzzyBuzzard
If you haven't heard from them, you shouldn't worry, unfortunately nobody except adcom can give full light in your case.
Kellogg won't start reading your app before interviewing you or granting you interview waiver. Which leaves you with the comfort that they haven't read your app, hence, relax. My bet would be you will learn from them within the 8 weeks from R2 deadline. Contacting them before won't really help, for sure they have tracking tools, they know your material is biping "read me, read me"!!!

Kellogg question regarding interviews [#permalink] New post 11 Jan 2013, 07:04
Sorry I'm new here. I applied to Kellogg in R2 last week.
I need to schedule an interview on-campus as I submitted Part 1 and Part 2 both on the deadline.

However, I am living about 5000 miles away from Evanston with a very very busy and unpredictable schedule and I don't think I can make it to the on-campus interview. What should I do?

Is it possible to get an interview waiver? In that case, they will base their decision solely on the written application?
I would still need to interview with them after being admitted right?

Any details on the turn around time from Interview to the decision being rendered? I am interviewing Tuesday 1/15/13 in NYC and am curious to know how quickly the process moves after this portion. Additionally, any pointers from those who have interviewed before about how to best prepare or anything you thought went over exceptionally well with the interviewer?

You won't hear anything until the decision release date - everyone hears news on the same day. I interviewed very early on during round 1 and had to wait almost 2 months before I heard from Kellogg again.

The interview is precondition for admission, you can't get in without interviewing refer to FAQ on Kellogg website. The deadline is gone right? why not simply ask for off campus and leave the adcom decide whether they will grant you a waiver. Remember a waiver per sei doesn't mean you are in or dinged, but a waiver without interview would go for ding way...

I just got this e-mail frm Kellogg. Don't remember getting any such thing frm Kellogg when I applied last year (I'm a reapp frm India and my interview was waived last year).

"Thank you for requesting an off-campus interview. Due to the high volume of interview requests that we have received, we are still in the process of fulfilling interview requirements. We have your interview request and you will receive an update regarding the status of your interview requirement within the next few weeks."

Anyone else get this e-mail?

Remember a waiver per sei doesn't mean you are in or dinged, but a waiver without interview would go for ding way...



I would find a way to make yourself free for the interview. Since you selected on-campus, you cannot hope for a waiver since they do not exist for the on-campus interview. If you never schedule the interview, you will certainly be dinged (due to requirement stated above).

If you really do not think it is feasible to schedule the interview, travel to Evanston, and travel home, I suggest calling the AdCom and explain your situation and ask to be placed in the off-campus interview category. They could say yes (problem solved) or no (back at the situation above). Either way, I personally think this is risky because it begs the question as to why you would then request an on-campus interview? They might think you could not meet the deadline for off-campus requests (not positive) or that you did not think through the travel required, etc (also not positive). In the end, this could really hurt your chances.
