Hi, any R2 applicants from India got an interview invite for the 1Y at Kellogg?

Haven't heard from the school yet, bit curious and anxious :)

Warmly

Deoson - I am still anxiously waiting myself, but I am based in CA, US. I submitted my app and video essay on the last day possible, so I am afraid that may have impacted my application. Here's to hoping that interviews with alums are still being sent.

Why is this group so silent? No1 seems excited for the Kellogg 1Y :lol:
I'm an Indian based in Singapore, interviewed few days back. Anxiously waiting for my result.
Any idea how's the conversion ration for the 1Y program?

Any idea how difficult it is to get into 1Y MBA compared to the 2Y option?

Here is what I gathered with a little online research:

Kellogg has a policy of not reading an applicant's file, until he/she is interviewed. However in high application countries, they usually waive the interview so that they can get to reading the file earlier.

The waiver does not mean that they will not interview the candidate. It only means that they will read the application file BEFORE scheduling the interview. If they like the application, they will schedule an interview.

Hope this helps.

I'm from an over-represented group (Indian Male Engineer) but I received my interview invite just few days after submitting my application. I'm sure my application was read later. Very hard to predict what criteria they are using

Hi rohitbansal1507,

There is indeed no way to know for sure.

Sorry, if you mentioned this somewhere here... but when did you submit your application?

One reason for the waivers could be the rush of submissions towards deadline (and the subsequent spike in candidates to be interviewed) .

I submitted mine on the last day of R2.

Hi Buddy,
I submitted my application on 31st Dec 11PM :lol:
But my recommendations were submitted only on last day/ a day before.

btw, any idea how's the selectivity in Kellogg 1Y format? In one of the webinars I heard around 450 people applied for 120 seats. Any latest updates?

My 2 cents,

I submitted everything including video essays on 21/12 and recco were submitted few days earlier to that.

I received invite on 21/01,so am pretty sure Kellogg wants to collect all data points before evaluating someone's profile and alumni who interviewed me confirmed the same.

People who get waiver is due to sudden spark in candidate's profile in same or nearby location due to which alumni availability become very restricted and hence the waiver. So in such situations if you have got the interview invite with adcom after the waiver then it apparently means they have gone through your application and seriously considering you to confirm everything you said in your application. People in those situations can better assess their chances of final acceptance (depending on how interview goes) rather than people who are interviewed before their file is assessed.

Almost all the people I have spoken to have done extremely well in their interviews,so even a minor data point becomes major decider between an acceptance,reject or wait-list.


Cheers!

No news. I mailed Kellogg asking for an early decision and they said final decision will be rolled out only on 22nd March.
