Congratulations to all those who have received an invite :) and also to those who have completed their interviews.

Anyone from India, who has given Bangalore as location for the interview, been interviewed yet or received an invitation?

Thank you!

Cheers,
Harshita.

Anyone take a while to hear from their alumni? I wonder if they need to prioritize their inquires and build a schedule with Kellogg...

Indian applicant here. I received an invite for a Skype interview.

Are there applicants in India who have received invites for an in-person interview?

Yup, in person invite! Others in India have also got in-person invites.
I guess they liked your profile too much, so they said - hmm..let's talk to this person ourselves :)
Best of luck buddy..hope you do well!

Indian applicant from Hyderabad. I have a few doubts about this waiver thing:

1. Do people actually get selected without the interview?
2. If yes, does the ADCOM select on the basis of the video essays? (doomed here)
3. If skype interview is a possibility as many have already received it. I do not see not getting an invite as a good sign :P

Does Kellogg interview every applicant or is there a filter before the interview. I received my invite just a few minutes after I submitted the video questions, so I figured they did not evaluate my application before the invitation, but I could be wrong.

I'm from Brazil, interviewing on Skype next week.

After the interviewer submit the report, are we supposed to get a notification that the interview report is uploaded?

I actually think that an in-person interview signals a stronger interest from Kellogg :-D

Best of luck to you as well buddy :)

I had chosen Bangalore. Don't panic yet. I think everyone is getting an invite or in some cases waiver. This is not the final decision by Kellogg.

From what i understand, especially for international applicants, the school tries to find an interviewer match within the city of residence of the applicant. So if you are in the banking sector, they'll try and match you with an alum who too is in a similar sector. So, for those who haven't received invites yet, the school is most likely trying to figure out an interviewer match for you. I do not think invites are based on the preference of one profile over another. That also perhaps explains why certain individuals got an invite barely a few hours after submitting their applications/video questions.

I have a different take on the interviews. My interviewer was far away from my post MBA industry. So matching was done just to find a person in the same city as yours or in a nearby city. It does not have to do anything with matching the industries. Matching is only for the locations, IMO.

1. Yes. Interview waivers are a way fo Kellogg saying that we can only accommodate so many for interviews and it does not negatively impact your chances as mentioned at http://www.kellogg.northwestern.edu/pro ... ocess.aspx (pic attached below)

2. Video essays are 1 additional data set that the adcom use to 'know you better' and obv they will have a certain say in total 'admission score'. I dont think video essays per se can be a reason for an outright acceptance or rejection as this is the 1st time they did not give retakes to the students.

3. As mentioned in the attached picture above, skype inteview is a possibility for people getting interview waivers.

Then again, Kellogg does mention that getting a waiver does not necessarily mean that you will dinged. So I would say not to think too much about it as you did the best you could do.

All the best to you and everyone else for the interview invites and the interviews.

I agree with you completely. Since its is not always possible to have an alum in every city cater to the different backgrounds of the candidates they send invites to, it is very likely that in case they do not find a match, they schedule an interview with the best available alum.
