Mine replied the next day. Have you sent a followup email? If you have not, I recommend you do so right away. If you have, maybe send a 2nd. If you don't hear back by tomorrow, I would send a note to admissions. I recall there was a deadline to schedule these and depending on where you are, there might be some delay in finding another one.

This might have been discussed to death already, but does anyone know if Kellogg sends us decisions prior to the 3/25 deadline. Can I expect an email or call telling me whether I am WL / Denied or admitted, since I gave my interview already any time soon?

I don't think so. Although they did say something about "most will be notified before the final decision date"...but based on previous rounds it sounds like they all come out on the same day

FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: Do defaults save lives?
Image
First-year student Rohan Rajiv is blogging once a week about important lessons he is learning at Kellogg. Read more of his posts here.

A powerful study by Goldstein and Johnson in 2003 explored the relevance of defaults in organ donation. We discussed their findings and the implications in our class on “Values based Leadership.” Most countries have big problems with organ donations due to the large gaps between the number of donors and the number who need organs. However, this graph illustrating the difference in organ donation rates in the European Union is telling.

Image
https://www8.gsb.columbia.edu/sites/decisionsciences/files/files/Johnson_Defaults.pdf

As you can see, countries like Denmark, the UK, the Netherlands and Germany average around 10% while the rest are close to a 100%. The difference? Defaults.

In the “default” countries, citizens see a checked box in the form they submit to sign their driving licenses (for example) that says they will donate their organs when they die. It is up to them to un-check the box. And, clearly, very few do. This idea has been documented in researcher Richard Thaler’s book, “Nudges,” which discusses how small nudges by policy makers can make a big difference in society. This is an example of that. And, Goldstein and Johnson’s research shows that defaults are a powerful way to influence people.

I think this research also speaks to the power of strong cultures. Strong cultures are built around defaults and the idea of “this is what people like me do.” Defaults may just be the closest shortcut to cultural change. Governments such as the UK have understood that and have been setting up “Nudge committees” to study areas where important policy can be nudged. The challenge, of course, is that people hate the government playing big brother. However, nudges and the idea of defaults are here to stay and it’ll be interesting to see how policy makers use these tools to influence us.

One such researcher who is working hard to change things is Dan Ariely. And, I am reminded of this comment from him when I interviewed him two years ago.

“I look at the whole world, and then I say, “Is this a place that is the outcome of seven billion rational people? If everybody was perfectly rational this would have been the best world imaginable. The conclusion very easily is no. In a couple of hours I’m leaving for Africa where there’s a tremendous amount of illness and poverty. There is also a tremendous amount of hope. If this world is not the outcome of seven billion rational people, maybe we can do better.

It’s true that when you look at individuals, you can say for each individual, “I wish you were more rational in some ways.” But for the planet as a whole you say “My goodness the gap between where we are and where we could be is tremendous.” There are a lot of things to improve. I think we can do much more. That’s my hope. My hope is that as we’re learning more we will improve things. Both in terms of my personal life and in terms of my outlook on the world in general, it’s a good thing.”

Rohan Rajiv is a first-year student in Kellogg’s Full-Time Two-Year Program. Prior to Kellogg he worked at a-connect serving clients on consulting projects across 14 countries in Europe, Asia, Australia and South America. He blogs a learning every day, including his MBA Learnings series, on www.ALearningaDay.com.

Hey guys, I had my alum interview in NY for R2 last week. Went really well and was quite conversational and pleasant. I had a question about the interview invite itself. Basically, does everyone who request an off-campus interview get one? Trying to gauge whether or not having the interview says anything positive about my candidacy. Any insights?

Kellogg interviews everyone (outside of Indian candidates). Did you get any oddball questions during your interview or did it mostly focus on the standard ones?

I would suggest sending a follow-up message or even calling your interviewer. I did both in my case and was able to successfully arrange one. Otherwise I would suggest letting Admissions know as per suggested in the interview email.

Based on my reading of previous year threads, Kellogg tries to interview everyone and typically reviews applications only after interview reports are submitted. Waivers are issued because Admissions would like to go ahead to evaluate the candidate before the interview because there are limited alumni available in the candidate's area. Invites after a waiver is issued is a positive sign, otherwise try not to think too much about it.

It really depends on the personality of the alumnus. At the end of the day they have to fill out an interview report. As a candidate your only fear is that the alumnus may not have sufficient details to champion your candidacy even if they wanted to.

After 7 days of no reply to my email from alumnus, I sent him a text message (which was provided to me by Kellogg in the very same email in which they told me who my interviewer was). Appears that my email went to his junk folder.
So my advice is that you send the guy a text 'coz he might not have received your email in his inbox.

I am applying to the Kellogg MMM program. Submitted 1/6, Received interview 1/8 and completed the interview in NYC on 1/22.

The interview was almost too easy. No curve ball questions. Almost more of a conversation than a strict interview. Interview was at a Starbucks and lasted 35 minutes. (alum was not a Kellogg MMM)

Since it was so easy, it leads me to believe that these don't hold very much weight. Probably just making sure you can speak clearly, can show up on time and don't look like a bum.

lol, yea I know Kellogg is big on "fit", so I think a fair amount goes into whether they think you would be a good teammate and what not

Ahhhh, I'm so envious of how easy it is for you guys to get interviewed. Being an Indian applicant to Kellogg is just frustrating. Waiver? No waiver? Invite following waiver? The wait is endless.

But as a fellow MMM applicant, it sounds like your interview went smoothly, hope that means good things to come!

People .. Guess I will be a bit out of place here as am an applicant for KELLOGG 1 year MBA (class of 2016) :roll: , but there is no thread for discussions on the same (guess due to fewer applicants )

I Have got an alum interview request today . Have a few questions :

1. What is this interview about ? PS : On reading the posts above it appears like a cool conversation to filter out the candidates further for the D-DAY !
2. Preparation strategy for the same !

Will be happy for 2-cents of advice :lol:

Cheers to all applicants for class of 2017 ! :wink:

Kellogg, McCormick students win Chinese case competition  [#permalink]

FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: Kellogg, McCormick students win Chinese case competition
Image
Kellogg Two-Year students Rochelle Hua and Cindy Ye, along with McCormick graduate student Kevin Shi, all ’15, took top honors at the Suzhou New District, technological innovation and entrepreneurship leader competition last month. The team won $5 million yuan (RMB) — or more than $800,000 in U.S. dollars — in cash and prizes for co-founding a food and nutrition startup in Suzhou, a major city in the Jiangsu province of Eastern China.

The startup, Kosmode Biotechnology Co., Ltd., focuses on commercializing food science technologies for general consumer use. Their first proposed product is a cranberry-based supplement that would help cure urinary tract infections.

Hua thanked Clinical Professor of Marketing Tim Calkins — and his biomedical marketing class — for providing the inspiration to develop the startup.

“I truly value my Kellogg experience,” said Hua, who spent five years working in the food and nutrition field — including a stint at Abbott — prior to Kellogg. “I am here to learn and apply it in a market that flourishes. The award is an affirmation.”

LATE NIGHTS AND HARD WORK YIELD SUCCESS

Prior to Kellogg, Ye was an analyst and later associate for Bank of America Merrill Lynch, where she focused on the food and beverage industry. Shi, who is the startup’s CEO, founded a number of lean startups before pursuing a Masters in Information Technology. Shi is also a member of the Kellogg Entrepreneurship Organization.

The team came together in March 2014 and submitted an 86-page business plan to the competition one month later. “There were definitely many late nights and lots of hard work,” said Shi. “But it’s great fun to visualize our ideas into tables, graphs and of course prototype products.”

Last September, the team traveled to Suzhou to give a final presentation on Kosmode to a number of veteran entrepreneurs and venture capitalists. In December, the team learned they beat out more than 2,600 teams to take the top spot.

With the win, Kosmode received $1 million yuan in cash, $2 million in government investment and $2 million in low interest loans. “Winning the competition is the first step, and we have many more steps to go,” said Ye. “But with the Kellogg experience, I appreciate teamwork a lot more.”

Hi
You are not out of place. This thread belongs equally to ppl applying to 1YR. If I remember correctly (from the last year's thread), the interview process is same for 1YR and 2YR applicants.
