So I got the alumni interviewer details from Kellogg.
1st thing: Googled him. Nothing came up.
2nd thing: Checked him up in Linked In. He came up as a 3rd degree relationship (predictable enough since I have a Kellogg grad in my network).

Now should I:

or
b) Leave it alone and go straight to the interview?

Thanks. L.

Um, I would probably leave it alone. It makes you sound like a cyber-stalker. If appropriate, you might say in the interview, "when were you at kellogg? oh, really? I wonder if you know John Smith. He's a coworker of mine."

Establishes the rapport, without being creepy.

Yeah, definitely don't contact them before/after the interview. There are some people who would view that as sucking up and there doesn't seem to be any benefit at the moment.

Thanks to all, I've "left it alone".

Cheers. L.
