How quickly to people usually hear back for an interview after submitting Part 1? My question being, the Part 1 deadline for Round 2 is December 15, but if I were to submit now, is it possible to have the interview even before the deadline? Thanks in advance.


I submitted my Part 1 in October for Rd 2. I heard back two weeks ago, and have my interview scheduled for this week, well ahead of the January deadline.

Dont worry. I am sure its a glitch. The same thing happened with Insead. A week before their interview decision, some folks got a mass email from the Dean talking about Insead Alumni and Campus events. After some discussions on gmatclub, we confirmed that the email was sent out to only folks who had signed up for the weekly Insead Knowledge newsletter. It had nothing to do with admission/interview decisions.

I would say the email sent out by Kellogg today is similar in nature.

Hi

Just had my telephonic interview with Kellogg (after it was waived in October). It was 30 mins long, all questions covered in a very transactional manner. The lady was not warm but not unfriendly either. Though I tried to strike the balance between team player and leader in my answers, I suspect I painted myself out to be more a leader. I hope that doesn't hurt my chances. My question is - what does a last minute phone interview usually mean? Someone I know told me that if they call you at this point, it's probably because they're very keen and just want to be certain that you speak well and are the person represented in your written application; apparently it's not so much of a selection tool. I'd really appreciate any info and thoughts on this issue! Also, what sort of conversion rate is there between interviewed candidates and accepted candidates at Kellogg?

Thanks!


Stormbringer, I was in the same situation last year after R1. Got a late interview invite just few days before the deadline after an initial interview waiver. I was thrilled to think that they do like my profile. Interview went reasonably okay, still can't think of anything that went terribly wrong but a week after I got waitlisted. Stayed in the waitlist till the end (roughly for 4 months) without getting accepted till the end. Applied this year again in R1 and keeping my fingers crossed. :|

So far all I have heard from them is how their alumni are so diverse, how their professors are making a mark in world etc. which almost always stops my heartbeat for a moment before I conclude that they are just mass mails sent to hundreds of applicants (probably to test their nerves and if they can survive to see the final result :shock: :evil: )

I've seen a report of a ding already... check http://iamalittlemorethanuseless.blogsp ... -ding.html

Has anyone else heard similar news (positive or negative)?

That blog looks fishy and is a little vague. Maybe the author just did not an interview invite and assumed? It would be odd if someone got a ding while others were still receiving interview invites at the time.

So, in your opinion, what are some of the strengths of Kellogg? What makes it unique?

No. Totally believable.

Actually this guy is pretty popular on the beatthegmat forum. So I would buy in to what he calls his ding.

If he actually had an encounter with the adcom, he would have mentioned how they reached out to him - its sounds more like someone giving up, than actually getting dinged. Judging from his writing and word choice, I suspect he is from India - likely, one of the people who got an interview waiver and never got converted.

I'd be pretty surprised if there were any decisions released last week, especially on Thanksgiving when the school administration was off for the holiday.

Also, I'm pretty sure for the past few years the first decisions to go out were acceptances, with dings starting a little later, so I'd imagine that pattern would continue.

I call BS on the guys ding unless he is applying for the PT or EMBA program which may have diffferent deadlines. They wouldnt send out dings right before the holiday and they wouldnt do it before sending out acceptances. They have said in the past that they hold off on dings during christmas so I wouldnt see a sudden change in their way of doing things.

ROFL. But I hope this doesn't happen to anyone.

You are right. I think he just made an assumption that he is dinged because his waiver did not get converted.

What is Dec 10? Communication date is the 20th. If we don't start hearing back this week, my money is on Monday for the fun to begin. In the meantime, I'm going a little crazy. If Kellogg knew how often I checked my gmail and this site, they'd definitely reject me - Just kidding Kellogg if you're reading this (but seriously).

I'm also thinking/hoping that notifications will start on Monday b/c this wait is too excruciating!

I can only imagine...

So does Kellogg call everyone who gets admitted?? I'm in NYC so if I do, chances are it'll be by phone? That IS nerve wracking!
