    Did any Indian candidates, who submitted by the R2 deadline, receive interview invites? If yes, did you get it on an email or on the application portal? I submitted my app on 4th Jan but I have yet to hear from Kelley.


    When did you receive the email saying that your app is complete and has been sent for review ?


    Actually I did not receive such an email. I submitted my app on deadline day (4th Jan). On the same day, I got an email saying thanks for submitting your app. It is not possible to track your status from the web portal. You will receive an email from us if we need anything from you. If you do not hear from us, your app is complete and we do not require any docs from you.

      Had my R2 interview today. It was with a 2nd year student who works in admissions. He had actually reviewed my entire application which they said was always the case for the person interviewing you at Kelley. Lasted about 40 minutes. Nice guy, very conversational with some behavioral questions. Honestly not a lot of actual questions. They left at least a third of the time allotment for me to ask questions so be prepared for that.
      First question: "Why Kelley". I think this is their biggest question. It all flowed from that. (Career goals and how that fits with my background). Didn't even have me walk him through my resume or anything.
      Also asked: "How to lead different kinds of people", "Constructive feedback", "What motivates you"
      Hope this help.



      Thanks for sharing your experience!
      I'm planning to do mine in the middle of Feb. All the best for you!

      Thank you! I submitted my application January 4th.
      Oh boy...you're right. There is a written component of the GRE too so it should be:
      Q160+V158+W4.5=322.5
      I attempted to round up to fit the formatting of the decision tracker, but it should've been 323!

      That is a great score.
      No offense, and I am sorry to overstep the bounds(in case i do), but analytical writing is a different component and is not added up with the Q and V sections.
      Total score is out of 340(Q+V) and AWS is scored on an independent scale from 0 to 6.

      No offense taken, thank you for the clarification! I wasn't sure how to enter it in the decision tracker. The GMAT is so popular that I didn't see any other GRE scores posted.

      In round - 1, we did had a few late invites so I am hoping there will be some this time as well.
      Also, 1st March is the final deadline for enrollment (& paying the token money) for R1 admits. So there is a chance that a few (usually 35-40% as per the Yield Rate of Kelley) will back out and thus creating few slots for which the adcom might get tempted to invite more people for interviews in 1st week of March.

      So hang in there my friend.
