Done with the video essays, questions were same as have already been discussed. I was a bit nervous but tried to be as composed as possible.

But, now I have a bigger worry, I just noticed a small mistake (grammatical, silly, silly silly... :oops: ) in one of my essays. Don't know how I missed it in about a zillion reviews.

Please tell me, am I doomed?

my first one was "if time and money werent a problem, what would you be doing?"

stumbled quite a bit and had major trouble looking at the camera but at least it's over.

good luck,everyone!

Na, don't worry about it, can't change anything now. Also, I looked at my friend's application from last year, a handful of typos, but he got into every school he applied to.

Done with the video essay!
1) If time and money weren't a problem, what you you be doing?
2) What path are you interested in pursuing, how will you get there, and why is this program right for you?

Had some issues with the video using Chrome on one of my laptops, switched to a backup laptop and it worked fine.

Phew, can't believe I practiced and stressed about this for couple of days but the real thing went by so fast! Now it's just sit back and having my fingers crossed...

The personal question I got was "How would your friends describe you to someone they've just met". The second question was what the instructions said.

Good luck all!

Does anyone else here have issues completing the video interview? I am unable to fully setup my device because it doesn't take me beyond the web cam stage.

Hi guys..
Does anyone know in how much time does one generally hear from Kellogg about the application status? Thanks.

Congratulations. Although Kellogg invites all candidates for an interview, you should no longer be worried about your grammatical error in one of your essays.

Video essay in the books. Questions were:

1) If you could be an animal for a day which would you choose and why?
2) the standard

Hard for me to feel like this portion of my application is going to win me any points. I pretty much didn't finish answering the second question. I would say in hindsight 60 seconds is not very long so maybe a bit more practice would've been wise. Oh well, can't touch it now. Hopefully they only really wanted to see my pretty face.

good luck everyone else as we wait now

Yes Engr2012, I am happy about that only. :)

I got cut off as well, and I practiced a ton. I was lucky to be cut off mid way through my "growth as a student" CUT " and thrive as a professional." I think it'll be alright, overall, I'm assuming that the video essay isn't heavily assessing your answer, more of your ability to articulate, speak English, and handle pressure.

Hey guys,

I just got an email for scheduling an off-campus alumni interview in Dubai within the next 14 days!
I really didn't think Kellogg would respond so soon considering I just completed my interview 2 hrs prior to getting the email.
I know they do like to interview as many candidates as possible, but my heart still skipped a beat when I read the mail.

Does anyone know what kind of questions are typically asked during these interviews? How do you prepare for them?
Any and every advice is appreciated.

Thanks :)

I am not too convinced everyone actually gets one. I am sure they accommodate all on-campus interviews though.

They try to get in whatever they can manage with their alumni all over the world but they also have the provision to conduct interviews via skype if the city that you live in does not have any Kellogg alumnus. Additionally, at their discretion they can even waive the requirement of an interview altogether.

Just submitted the video essays. Questions were:

1, What are you most passionate about and why
2. Why the particular path you have chosen and how do you plan to use Kellogg for achieving your goals

Sent email to alumnus in my region for scheduling an interview.

All the best everyone.
