I didn't know about such alumni referral letters at Kellogg. Only heard there's one at Ross.

As per GMAT club, 90% R1 candidates were interviewed last year compared to only 35% this year. Not sure really whats going on :(

O goodness me.. thats a substantial drop...somehow 35% doesn't quite look representative....there are so many with the self-initiated interviews as well. They alone would make more than 35...

This year's stats are only as accurate as the applicants' user profiles. That number would rise if everyone who interviewed this year would update their status at Kellogg to "Interviewed."

I dont think this is realistic. It is probably due to the people who actually did interview, did not update their applicant profile to show such. The numbers would still be roughly the same.

FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: Offers, acceptances and salaries rise for Full-Time students
Image

Ninety-five percent of the Full-Time Class of 2015 received an offer by three months post-graduation, as reported today by Kellogg’s Career Management Center(CMC). Kellogg also saw an increase in acceptances this year — 92 percent of students accepted a full-time offer by three months post-graduation.

The Full-Time Class of 2015 also saw a bump in median salary, rising to $123,000 from the $120,000 reported in 2014.

“Kellogg has made significant investments in the Career Management Center over the past three years. Our staff has grown by 30 percent, including individuals focused on coaching and business development,” said Mark Gasche, managing director, Career Management Center. “With this expanded team, we are able to more closely counsel and coach students, resulting in deeper relationships.”

Read the full story on the Kellogg website.

Did any candidates who have already interviewed get an invite for an event with the career development office? Does that mean anything?

For the employment outcomes webinar this Thursday? If so, I think that's just for everyone on the mailing list, wouldn't read anything into it.

Not sure if this has been addressed before, but will we see a change in our application dashboard after the interview? (i.e. interviewer submitted or interview completed) Thanks!

I wish! The lack of knowing if they ever submitted a review has weighed heavily on my mind of late.

Haha, feels better knowing other people share my agony... the interview went really well so I just wanted some verification. Oh well, T-1 month to go...

They've sent that mail to everyone who has been interviewed, and perhaps to others too, not too sure.

I know i was reading into it a bit too, especially when they do not have the webinar listed on the website.

A friend of mine received a large packet of marketing materials in the mail after interviewing. I did not. He didn't do a campus tour / visit, while I did. That's the only difference I can think of...

US-based.

EDIT: Not reading into it, but still interesting.

Agreed, it's probably a combination of people not updating their profile and people that actually pushed from Round 1 to Round 2 who originally committed Round 1.

WBA hosts career networking event [#permalink]

FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: WBA hosts career networking event
Image

Image

Image

By Tiffany Chen

Armed with a name tag and a small notebook, I recently made my way to the Woman’s Club of Evanston, a house near campus with more than 100 years of history. This was the venue for Careers Uncorked, one of the Women’s Business Association’s (WBA) biggest events of the year.

Held every year in October before the advent of recruiting season, WBA’s Careers Uncorked gives first-year women at Kellogg a taste of recruiting in an intimate setting.

This year, the event attracted a wide range of industries and companies; signage dotted the room with more than 25 company logos, including:

3M
Accenture
Amazon
AT&T

A.T. Kearney
Bain
Baxter
BCG

Colgate
Danaher
Deloitte
E.J. Gallo

General Mills
Goldman Sachs
Johnson & Johnson
L.E.K Consulting

Liberty Mutual
McKinsey
Microsoft
Parthenon

PwC
Strategy&
Target
and more

As the casual banter and the sound of heels filled the building’s atrium, 130 of my fellow classmates began to chat with the recruiters about everything from firm culture to work-life balance. As for myself, I asked about consulting firms’ career trajectories and quickly learned about the unique women’s initiatives that characterized each firm.

What I also learned was that the company representatives were extremely relatable and forthcoming. I could tell that most of my fellow classmates felt at ease, despite the fact that this was the first time we had stretched our networking muscles in quite a while.

Alyson Harvey, another first-year student, reflected on her experience.

“As someone still exploring different career pathways, it was extremely beneficial to have a large variety of companies together in a low-stakes environment,” Harvey said. “I was able to explore my interests by getting to know a number of different companies in a short period of time.”

In between networking with different companies, I chatted with another student, Maggie Hsu, about her evening. “This is definitely easier than I thought,” she said. “All the companies are really approachable and friendly.”

As I made my final round with a few remaining companies, I realized that Maggie’s experience also rang true for me. Kellogg’s inclusive community is one of the reasons why I chose to attend the school in the first place. The unique opportunity to practice networking in an intimate space reaffirms Kellogg’s commitment to making my MBA experience, as well as that of my fellow classmates, all the more enriching.

Tiffany Chen is a first-year student in Kellogg’s Full-Time Two-Year MBA program. She serves as a 1st Year Director of Marketing for the WBA. Prior to Kellogg, Tiffany worked in an edtech start up in Hong Kong.

Its 17th of November and since I received a waiver there is no update. How can this be possible provided that interviews must be completed by the 21st of November??
Probably this is a ding. I strongly bet on the fact that Kellogg interviews everyone.... I thought that through the interview I could communicate and make a positive impression despite a low GMAT score... Disappointing!
