Just had my interview with an alum in Delhi. It lasted for 45 mins or so.

Needless to say it was pretty conversational and high paced. He took a lot of notes. List of questions he asked -

1) What have you done in the last one decade of your life?
2) Why MBA and why now?
3) What are looking to get from Kellogg?
4) How are you planning to spend your 2 years at Kellogg?
5) Share the most interesting piece of work you have ever done.
6) My short term and long term goal and how Kellogg fits in?
7) If I have to choose a dream team for my start up which top 3 guys will I pick and why?
8) Key Strengths and weaknesses.

Had my interview today, felt like I did well. Overall the interview was very low key and conversational.

Questions:

Walk me through your resume.
Why MBA?
Why Kellogg?
What would your current boss say about you?
Tell me about a leadership experience you had.
Anything that you want to add that's not on your resume or in your application?

Mostly we just talked and I think we answered most questions through conversation.

Best of Luck...

I wouldn't read too much into it...I think it's just a technical glitch that actually reflects the timestamp of the date of your access.
That is, I 've been logging in and out since I submitted my application (9/22).
Every time I log in, the date just reflects the login date.
I doubt they've watched my video 50+ times.

That's not it. I've logged in to view my account multiple times and mine still says 9/25.

Just got an email from Kellogg informing me that my interview has been waived due to unavailability of any alumni in my area (New Delhi, India).
I guess that is just a sweet way to tell me that I am not worth their time.

Just got a waiver of interview from Kellogg stating that there are no alums in my area, which is Hyderabad-India. I can't believe that. Hyderabad will boast of some alums of Kellogg.. Are my fears true and is it Kellogg's way of politely refusing a shot at their seat in their incoming class..?? Dreading the worse now...

Has there been someone in the past who got selected without interview. ?



Hey! So I'm from the Hyderabad-India region as well and my interview got waived. However, I do know of people who have gotten through after having their interview waived. It would be nice though if somebody had some stats on what percentage get in after having their interview waived. Good luck buddy!

Copying a post from past years to calm us Indians whose interview got waived!!

str1der wrote:

To everyone applying from India. I am a reapplicant and hence am acquainted with how the process works. Let me detail it as I am sure it will calm some nerves:

1. Kellogg, by design, interviews each applicant. However, in areas of high demand of interviews such as India, it is not possible for them to match their alumni to each applicant as each alumni can do only as many interviews
2. Once both Part 1 and Part 2 are submitted, one of the following three scenarios will occur:

i. You will be invited to interview on a day in late Oct/Early Nov. This is essentially an interview day - many alumni will gather at a hotel and many applicants will be interviewed. No clear formula on how the invitees are decided, but I think it depends on who submtited Part 1 earlier as from Kellogg's vantage point everyone has to be interviewed and hence no one is at a higher or lower priority at that point. Once the interview has been completed, the adcom will review your essays and recommendations and you then sit tight until the decision date to hear back from them.

ii. You will get an interview waiver. The Kellogg team does NOT read an applicant's file until their interview is complete. Hence, to avoid delays, they start reading the application first for those in India who weren't sent invited in the first go. The waiver does NOT affect your application negatively - it just means that they are waiving your interview in order to begin reviewing your application

iii. If they like your application, you will receive an invitation to interview. This will be a one to one with an alumnus here, or a Skype with the adcom in Chicago

iv. It may also happen that you don't get this invite after the waiver, in which case it is safe to assume you have been dinged

3. Hence, unlike other countries, in India Kellogg does NOT interview everyone. Also, most people receive a waiver which can then convert/not convert into an interview invite at a later stage.
4. You will NOT be admitted to the program without an interview. Hence, if after the waiver you do not receive an invite, it means you have been dinged.
5. Dates: Please read last year's thread. If I recall correctly, people received the first invites 2 weeks after the Part 2 deadline. People who first received a waiver and then an invite (such as me) kept hearing throughout November. I got my invite around Mid Nov.
6. Hence, if by end Nov you haven't heard from them after a waiver, safe to move on to alternate plans
7. Most people in India will get a waiver - it will test your nerves (tested mine) but it is actually a blessing in disguise. If you receive an invite after a waiver, that means the adcom liked your application and wants to know more - that is a positive sign any day of the year

Hope this answers your queries. Indian applicants should NOT compare their interview timeline to foreign applicants.

I 100% agree with this. I know a lot of Indians who got an invite (mostly by skype) after a waiver. A good portion was accepted finally.

BTW, I got a waiver as well. I just hope that they like my application and I get an interview invite soon.

Not too sure about that. I logged in today - after reading this thread - and mine had a time stamp of the 28th.

With that said, has anyone seen their interview completion reflected in the portal?

Had my interview yesterday around Chicago area. The interviewer was super cool. Started with explaining why he did MBA and his experience at Kellogg. SOme of the questions I was asked were:

1) Background/ Walk me through your resume - some cross questioning - this led to why MBA
2) How I got involved with the non-profit I work for
3) Leadership experience
4) Team work
5) Challenge I faced at work
6) How I convinced people
7) Skill I used to find a quick solution
8) Goals
9) Why Kellogg
10) Alumni network discussion and club discussions
11) Anything I would like to ask him

Overall, i felt it went well. We talked a little bit about where he is working and living currently.

Guys, another one here on the waiver bandwagon! I am from Kolkata, btw. I don't think there is a reason to be as negative. From what I hear from experienced people, it is fairly common for international candidates, more so Indians, to be waived. So let's keep up the spirits! :gl
