riverripper, maverick,

Just called Kellogg about my recommender finishing his recommendation 2 hours late. Their official response was that "We cannot guarantee a decision in round 1 and you might get pushed to round 2". Is there something you guys know that we might benefit from, knowing you're one of the ambasaddors? I'm not too happy about recieving an answer as non-committal as this.

Just got an interview invite from Kellogg. Does Kellogg interview everyone or do some get interviews and others don't (like Wharton)? If not everyone is interviewed, what percentage of those interviewed ends up getting admitted?

All applicants are interviewed in order to be considered for admission. An interview is a required piece of everyone's application, just as an essay would be.

Only people who don't get interviewed live in the middle of no where or overseas. If they are interested in you they will then do a phone interview. I think something like 98% of all people get interviewed.

However, if you only talked to an office assistant or something then its not surprising that the answer you go. They most likely wouldnt really know the answer so they just give a fall back statement like that.

If by chance it was an adcom I think it might have something to do with volume being way up again (rumor is that its up a lot again this year). If your stuff got in before the deadline you will just go to the bottom of the pile of R1 people thanks to your rec being late. They will most likely get to it, but probably dont want to give a 100% yes since if they are having a hardtime completing all the reviews then people like you unfortunately will be the ones they put off.

Hmm. I submitted part 1 on 10/4 and requested an off campus interview...no word as yet. I'll give them a call on Friday to see what's up...

AC, per the Kellogg website, I think you were supposed to submit Part 1 by 10/3 if interviewing off campus. You probably want to call them. BTW, I received my invitation to interview off campus last week (submitted Part 1 in late August).

Anybody know when Kellogg starts releasing decisions? I interviewed back in September with an AO. I can post what I remember of the interview if it will help anyone prepare for theirs.

About the week of Thanksgiving should be the earliest decision releases.

I am going to submit an application for Round 2. Does anybody know whether there would be any advantage to getting my application in sooner rather than later? I realize the deadline for parts 1 and 2 are January 12th, but want to make it a goal to get my application completed by mid-November. It seems they do rolling admissions, so it seems that I could benefit by getting the application in sooner. Can anybody confirm this?

Thanks!

I dont think they do rolling admissions like Columbia. I submitted on deadline day and so did my recommenders last year. I interviewed in November not Sept like lots of folks. Yet I was still one of the first people admitted.

I wouldn't submit until I thought my application was the best it could ever be.

Thanks!

I've talk to the admissions about this, they have something like a rolling rounds. They give acceptances throughout the round, so although being PC, she said it doesn't matter, but the truth is the class will start filling up as the round progresses, so best to submit when you know it's ready.

BTW I just did my interview yesterday, but I'm also round 2 since my LOR hasn't been submitted by one of my managers

Hope this helps

Just had my interview, don't know if it went good or bad, but it was long. Most of it was after the interview where we talked about our past, kellogg. I don't know if the interviewer would add the conversation to her notes or not. But lasted about one and a half hours. I'm hoping length is a good thing.

My interviewer was really thorough, I think I got every question on the list. But we didn't really do a resume run through like most people have said. It was more like, Explain this job. (only asked about that) Other than that here's basicly the questions.

What do you do at your job?

Why Engineering?

Why MBA? Future short term?

Did you concider MMM program? (since I'm an engineer0

Future Long term?

Weakness and Strength?

Deal with Conflict with others?

How have you motivated someone?

How will you contribute to Kellogg?

(Here's the Kicker-didn't see this one before) If you were to be accepted by every school, what would be the deciding factor for your choice? (Did not answer this one well, I answered truthfully, but not well)

Among your leadership/volunteer experiences (on the resume, non-work), which ones to you think are most important and why?

That's all I can remember, a couple of the questions I didn't answer very well (weakness/which school will I choose/motivation). But we did talk for a long time, and I think she basicly got who I am. Oddly enough, my weakness one was a really bad answer.

Forgot one more!
Why type of problems do you usually have a harder time with? don't give specific problem, but catagory of problems. It was unusual question.

Got an interview waiver. I think its more bad than good specially since im in an Area where there are a lot of alumni. Am i one of the few to have received an interview waiver? I know the school claims that many of the applicants who get interview waivers eventually get in, but is this true?
