Is there anyone out there who got a waiver and was then later invited to interview? It's a week into March and I'm wondering what chance do I have of still expecting an invite, probably none :/

I was also waived in R2 and as far as I can tell it's a ding (especially for us Indians). No one who was waived in R1 received an invite either (at least as far as I know), so chances are very, very slim.

(Waived applicant here too)

I don't think that should be the case. They clearly say that they don't review the application before interview/waiver so I am not sure that waiver is a reflection on our candidature. If they want to reject us and not give out interview invites, they should just say that like all other schools.

That said, I am getting anxious now

I'm not sure about that... because the applications clearly go through some sort of review before they send out the invites (case in point: two people in the same city, A submitted their application way before B, but B gets an invite while A is waived). Also, I remember reading this particular blog post (it is a bit dated) and while this might be the opinion of a disgruntled applicant, some of it rang true to me.

If it helps.. Let me add another speculation the 2-3 R2 Indians on this forum that i saw receiving an invite were from Mumbai.. (Please correct me if I am wrong here).. But it felt like the applicants with an alumni in their city, received an invite.. Yes, I am also getting anxious, but since it is telephonic, we could receive an invite as late as about 15th of March (again speculation).. i heard some people on the forum mention that invites could come 1-2 weeks before deadline as well..

Is there any possibility that the Video interview we submitted was sufficient and they admit us without an interview? Wishful thinking..

I know of Indians who received invitations for a Skype interview (without being waived), from which I gathered that the presence or absence of alumni in a city didn't have much to do with it.

When did they receive these invites? Same time we received our waivers? I don't know.. When Kellogg says so openly that the waiver doesn't reduce our chances.. I would like to believe that they are being honest and at least some worthy ones will get called..

Can I ask AO to release decision on my application earlier before March 25th? I've got another school's offer and the final decision day is March 11th. Kellogg is my first priority school but I'm really not confident...
So does anybody here have such experience before? What did you say to AO and did you get feedback?
Many thanks.

They will not release the decision early. Also, Kellogg is one of the few schools that doesn't convey your entire (possible) scholarship package when you receive an admit decision. If scholarships would impact your decision, it may be a few weeks after the admit decision when you would find that out.

You could ask whichever school admitted you to extend their deposit deadline, or pay the deposit and view it as the cost of doing business.

If you are admitted, you will be asked to fill out FinAid forms, and only then you will know if you got scholarships or some other sort of free money along with loans etc

R1 folks - does kellogg do "rolling decisions"... or is it all on one day?

All on one day...Declines. Acceptances. Waitlists. Round 2 is March 25

...if your phone rings on that day, it's probably good news...everyone else is updated through email by 5:00 pm.

I had my phone on all day long in December, granted I was driving on the road all day, but I never got a call from Kellogg and began freaking out towards the end of the day... I was +4hrs from Chicago... Around 5pm Chicago time, I got an email of acceptance... so, Idk if I missed the call or they never called me, or if I was accepted by mistake haha

Anyways, they do spend the day calling ppl, in a random order - perhaps observing time zone differences - so you will spend all day long freaking "why havent they called me yet???" Take a chill pill early morning.

My interview is longer than that, but was also very casual. Also most of the times my interviewer was talking, sharing his learning with me... I guess that is why people always recommend applicants go for the on-campus interview with Adcom, if possible. I am actually curious about the instructions each alumnus was given before the interview. I have no idea how they could keep their interview quality in consistency, so I am not sure how important a role this interview plays in their application process.

I'm slightly concerned that everyone had shorter interviews than me, but it was probably just the style of my interviewer. My interviewer is an investment banker and the interview was located in a private hangout space off of the lobby of his work building. He said he wanted the interview to be more conversational and informal, but he was very formal and serious. Didn't ask a lot of follow up questions or make comments, but he did laugh at my attempts at humour. When I asked him questions about Kellogg, that's when he spoke more and gave long answers. Was worried that he may have found me boring, but when he answered my questions he referenced things that I had said (apparently he did similar volunteer work as me while at Kellogg). Overall, the interview lasted about 20 minutes.

The interview serves to disqualify you rather than to qualify you... you cant "ace" an interview, unless by "acing" you consider "expressing your trueself correctly"... the AdCom uses the interview to ensure that the person they think you are from reading your application is you indeed. A "strong" interview - whatever that means - doesn't increase your chances of admissions.. it's like pass/fail

Surely, some schools use the interview to "test" you... but not Kellogg... or Booth...

This has probably been covered, but they actually call people the day before the posted decision deadline, right? Seemed to work that way in Rd1

Edit: NVM, different school that I remembered. Looks like people got the call on the posted date for Kellogg

 FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: The JV Chronicles: Making Kellogg My Own Adventure A Kellogg spell-out in Portugal. Hanna is in the first “L.”I was ecstatic for my boyfriend when he was accepted to Kellogg, but I couldn’t help feeling a bit apprehensive about how my experience as a Joint Venture (partner of a student) would differ from his experience as a full-time student.Besides the fact that I had never seen snow fall from the sky and didn’t yet understand the power of earmuffs, I was worried about how well I would fit in with the Kellogg community and whether or not I was in for two years of always feeling like a bit of an outsider. I foolishly assumed the experience was not mine to define, because this was his adventure and that I was just along for the ride.Oh how wrong I was …No more than five minutes after we met our KWEST (Kellogg Worldwide Experiences & Service Trips) group, our leaders announced that under NO circumstances would we be allowed to discuss where we were from, where we worked or any other basic facts about our lives until the end of the trip.I didn’t know it at the time, but this brilliant requirement would end up setting the tone for my entire Kellogg experience. From day 1, I felt treated as part of the community and valued as a friend and peer before the words “I’m not a student” could even fall out of my mouth.During the first few weeks of school, I never once felt like I didn’t belong or that I was somehow less welcome at events because I wasn’t attending classes with the other students. I received email after email about opportunities for me to be involved in Kellogg life, not only with my partner, but also on my own as a member of the Joint Ventures community.Three months later I found myself at a meeting with the Joint Ventures Club executive team as one of the social chairs, and a few months after that in Dean Sally Blount’s living room discussing favorite Kellogg moments with students and faculty. In between was a whirlwind year making lifelong friends, planning events, sitting on panels, attending seminars and pushing myself out of my comfort zone.I think it speaks volumes that a school I didn’t even attend could have such a profound impact on my life.Kellogg has inspired me to become a better leader by challenging me to never stop learning from my peers and growing as a member of a community, even when I feel uncomfortable or out of place. I’ve also learned to let go of fear when it comes to volunteering and doing things I’ve never tried that may end in failure.I truly felt encouraged by Kellogg to make these two years my own and to learn and develop while still supporting my boyfriend and enjoying our time together.I’ll be ending this adventure with him and I will forever be grateful for our experience here as two full-fledged members of the Kellogg community.Hanna Michelsen works remotely for her company as an engineer while her boyfriend attends Kellogg’s Full-Time Two-Year MBA program. They have loved every minute of being in Evanston, but they will be returning to California in the fall and can’t wait to attend Kellogg alum events in the Bay Area!Filed under: Academics, Student Life Tagged: joint venture, joint ventures, JV, kellogg community, Kellogg Worldwide Experiences & Service Trips, kwest, partner, spouse, Two-Year MBA Program

Anyone who got a waiver got an interview invite? I think it's unlikely to get one now when there are barely 2 weeks left for the decision.
