By the way, my email communication for the interview slot registration process mentioned that this is 'Day two' of the interview process (Feb 9th, Mumbai). If so, anyone from Day One? Also, when I registered, the only slot available was the 9.30am slot. Any others in Mumbai for this particular time slot? It could be interesting to exchange notes :)

So is it safe to assume that Kellogg strictly invites applicant for an interview in and around their state only and it does not make an applicant travel to another state (Delhi ---> Mumbai, Bangalore ---> Mumbai etc) for a personal interview, even if they really 'like' the applicants profile. :idea: :idea:

Can anyone (seniors, R1 applicants, R2 interviewed applicants etc) throw some light on this please! Has anyone in India been invited to a different state for a personal interview with Kellogg? :?:


Hello guys,
I'm not from India, so I can't really be sure about what are the selection criterias for interviewed candidates in your country, but I can share my experience. In Brazil, Kellogg was able to arrange a personal interview for me in my own city, but another school made me travel to interview, even though I had the option of scheduling a Skype interview.
Nevertheless, if you read this thread, you'll see there are people interviewing in person, and people receiving waivers, all in the same location. It's impossible to know for sure what the school is thinking. Maybe Kellogg has no interest in your candidacy, maybe the adcom feels that an interview wouldn't help too much in evaluating you, maybe you'll be waitlisted and interviewed later, or maybe things will go well and you'll receive an offer of admission, who knows?? I'd try not to read too much into it, I realize it's hard not to get nervous with what might happen, but the school obviously knows what it's doing, and trying to guess what its actions mean just drives us crazy! The decision is no longer in our hands, so let's just try to relax and hope for the best!
I believe (and this is just my opinion) that in areas of high demand, Kellogg will give priority to whoever the school feels the need to understand a little better. That doesn't mean that someone who receives an interview waiver is automatically out of the process.

Well, that is how I try to remais calm during these weeks of uncertainty. If there's nothing else I can do, it means I've done everything I could. Whatever will be, will be.

Good luck guys!!!

Neither invite, nor waiver. Kellogg is all acting like that confused chick I proposed - can't live with me, can't live without me. Ha ! :wink:

Well atleast one of the other chicks you proposed to accepted. Which is a big deal given India's f*cked up sex ratio (the analogy here of course referring to the over represented Indian applicant pool). haha - cheers!

I got a waiver on saturday for interview in delhi. I feel that either the adcom is trying to match candidate profile with the interviewer's profile or the one's who have got the waiver are doomed.

str1der,
You could straight head to a honeymoon on a tropical exotic island. The chick you proposed to, accepted you and you both decided to marry to ' live happily ever after'.
However, I'm still on a hunt. :twisted:
While I hate to ditch if I do, someone who gave me my first acceptance, sometimes you do what you've gotta do.

Hi,

Had my interview a few days ago, with an alumnus, in my town. We met at a coffee shop. He had my resume and went on it briefly prior to the meeting, from what I can say. He said it will be about 45 minutes, we ended in 1:15 hour.
The questions were as follows:
1) Walk me through your resume + short questions along my answer (why this undergradute degree? what did you do here\there...)
2) Tell me about a time you worked in a team, and your team was encountering difficulties.
3) Why do you want an MBA (which led to more questions - which students did I talk to, what were your impressions...)
4) TMAAT you thought that you see the solution to a problem, but your teamembers\manager didn't see it as you?
5) How will you contribute to the school?
6) What qualities define a great leader in your view? Tell me about a great leader that impressed you.
7) few questions regarding my engineering background
8) What do you define as a difficult task? which tasks you do like to do?
9) my questions to him.

Overall, the conversation was smooth and nice and very friendly. I got the impression that I am tested more for a "fit" than for anything else.

Goodluck to all of us!

Yep, sure do. My interview was a month ago so I keep checking eagerly for it to change (to something like "admit" of course!).


Yeah, same here -- interview about a month ago. As long as I'm not the only one I'm not worried. Shot an email to admissions to check, but I'm sure we are fine.



My status still hasn't changed. Did you hear anything informative back from admissions?

My status hasn't changed either, but I did get this response from admissions:

We had an influx of interview requests for this round of admissions, so it is taking a bit longer that we expected to update the application status check. Please be patient with us during this busy season as we will get that information to you as soon as we can.

Are there people in India still waiting for an invite or waiver ?
I called Admissions office today. Unfortunately, my call was forwarded to someone who wasn't there to pick the phone.

Edit : Got the interview invite few hours from this post.

Is there anyone who got a waiver and was accepted later? This would help clear some myths about initial interview waivers.

I wanted to confirm the time slot for my interview. Now I can find any written mail after the request for interview registration stating that. Any idea where I can find it?

This is a very usual phenomenon at Kellogg. You apply, get waiver, get invite, and get accepted.
