Is any of the R2 applicants still getting this message? I submitted on Jan 12 but my status page has been showing the same message since.
Should I email admissions?

Thank you for your interest in the Kellogg School of Management.

After Part II of your application has been submitted, the next update will confirm whether or not all application materials have been received. Due to the high volume of applications that are submitted near the application deadline, please allow several weeks of process time for our staff to match all materials sent under separate cover and to verify all required items have arrived. As applications are processed daily, we recommend periodically checking the status between 4:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. Central Standard Time, Monday through Friday.


Same here, although there's a link to my interview waiver below that.


It now says "All the required elements of your application are complete..."

I was up there to interview on Friday, and all I can say is man were there a lot of DAK people. Seemed like the school was just insanely crowded. I also had a great time on campus. I really enjoyed the students and liked the fact that I didn't meet one single person who was pursuing a career in Finance. Of course there are people, but banking is certainly not the hottest career choice. Although I did attend Professor Stowell's class and thought it was outstanding. Great experience overall.

Hi all,

I was reviewing my app for forthcoming interview and noticed a grammar error in one case and an absent word (lost in zeal of size reduction!)

Does anyone know how bad is this?

Thanks and best of luck to everyone.

Obviously not ideal, but not going to make a difference. Anyway, its water under the bridge!

I wouldn't worry about it. My Kellogg essays had a grammatical error (I wrote access where I meant assess...oops), and it doesn't seem to have made a difference. I think as long as the errors are few and far between it won't hurt you.

jb32 - from my experience visiting in October, Jacobs is kind of crowded even when there aren't 230 or so DAK people added to the mix. They are planning to build a new building, which I would imagine will be bigger, but that won't be ready until after we've all graduated.

New building is going to have double the space for students...its going to be huge from what they have told us. Chances are it wont be done by the time you guys graduate but it all depends how fast it goes, you could do a semester or two in it. Rooms arent that crowded usually, since they dont book every seat...the only get crowded when 6+ applicants try to squeeze in and during winter when every single person has huge coats stuffed all over the room. I never have a hard time finding places to eat or hang out...group rooms are the only issue and you figure out how it works pretty quickly. Study rooms in McMannus are great for evening meetings, they are closer to where most people live, and usually arent hard to get. If you want to book at lunch time or 5pm, group rooms need to be booked well in advance. Set up a group time that meets every week and always block that out or it becomes a mess to figure out schedules. Unfortunately, 2nd years have it down so 1st semester can be challenging as you learn the ropes.

I also have the same status message. I completed my interview assignment yesterday, and my interviewer said he will submit the report within one week.

May be then, my file will become complete and will be submitted for review.

Good Luck.

Interviewed yesterday. The students at Kellogg seemed really happy and collaborative. The feel of the place is very positive. My interview was mediocre. I am not too happy with it (but it wasn't a disaster, either).

Mine only changed this week, and I had my interview back in Jan.

I and several others have been admitted through an interview waiver - you can look at some pages back to read about our experiences.

I think it really doesn't affect your chances.

Didn't they interview you via phone or something? I thought they always interviewed admits one way or another.

I'm not sure if its always the case, but all the waived candidates I know, including myself, were eventually interviewed by phone.

No a lot of people who get waivers dont end up getting interviews. So to get in they have to set up the interview post waiver.

Yep, and the flip side of that is that those people that get waivers and aren't interviewed by phone are dinged. Happened to a friend a couple of years ago...

Last year for R2 the calls started right after DAK, but DAK was a week later. So if the timing stays consistent from last year, the first calls could start next week.

Any thoughts on a minimum period of time between interview and decision? For instance, were the people who got calls immediately post-DAK interviewed on or before the Part II deadline?

How bout the waitlist (sorry if this was covered elsewhere)? When do they start taking ppl off that? I'm guessing mid-March, but who knows?

I guess this is directed at River, but do you have a sense of how many ppl they WL and how many eventually get in off the WL? Thanks a lot!
