Neither have I. My hopes are dying!
Is there a pattern in who gets the invite?

Hi Narenn

Do we have any active forum for MMM re-applicants?

Thanks.

I got the invite for Off-campus a few days ago, but they had mismatched the location and cancelled my interview and had me set up a Skype Interview with an Adcom instead.

I would have very much preferred an in-person interview. :(
But, is there any preference for one over the other? Also, any insight on how it would be different from interviewing with an Alum?

Hey Muskan,

Just curious. Did you reach out to Kellogg to inform that the interview is in another city or did they cancel themselves?

I reached out since the interviewer location didn't just span across different cities but countries :)
They wrote back saying there was a mixup. :)


Hope this helps!

Exploring Social Innovation at Social Impact Days 2016 [#permalink]

New post 03 Oct 2016, 08:00
FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: Exploring Social Innovation at Social Impact Days 2016
Social Impact Days at Kellogg is an annual event that takes place before pre-term, bringing together incoming students who are interested in forging impact over the course of their careers. Students gather over the span of three days to hear from influential social impact speakers, learn about Kellogg’s social impact offerings, engage with classmates, faculty and staff, and design innovative solutions to real-world social and environmental challenges. Below, Myah Smith ’18 reflects on her unforgettable Social Impact Days 2016 experience.https://kelloggmbastudents.files.wordpr ... =386&h=386

When the email went out to register for Social Impact Days 2016, I was oozing excitement.

Social Impact Days was one of the reasons I wanted to attend Kellogg in the first place. I wanted to explore all of the ways to get involved and make an impact in my community, and this event provided the first opportunity of many more to come.

To explain it as simply as possible, Social Impact Days is an opportunity for wickedly smart students of all backgrounds to put on their impact hats and apply their talents to solving some of society’s most challenging issues.

My experience at Social Impact Days was phenomenal to say the least. The participating students were so diverse, coming from different industries, functions and previous experience levels – but all shared the value of making a positive impact in the world.

During the event, we had the opportunity to form teams and select whether we would tackle the challenge of a local nonprofit, help a local corporation drum up a corporate social responsibility initiative or be a “wild card” and start an independent venture. My team of five chose the wild card option and decided to address the access gap that selective universities face when seeking high-achieving, low-income students of diverse backgrounds.

While I enjoyed everything about Social Impact Days, the activity I enjoyed most wasn’t technically an activity at all: It was the block of time from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. when all of the group magic was made. It was a dynamic meeting of the minds that intersected with learning the tricks of the startup trade, and then immediately applying these learnings to the group task at hand.

Professor Schonthal was extremely enlightening and engaging, and he gave us brilliant ways to approach our task. Being a wild card group meant we had the autonomy to create our own unique solution to a challenge, and had to employ a lot of the relevant information Professor Schonthal had shared on startups.      

What I took away from this experience was the value of diversity in teams and the remarkable results that can be achieved when that diversity is harnessed around a common goal. We pitched a simple, yet effective way to get promising students in front of admissions officers and engage them early on before it’s too late. And we won the competition with “Best Overall Solution” for our startup category, plus “Most Innovative Solution” and “Best Pitch” out of all 15 competing teams.

It was truly an amazing experience to see how all of our personal and professional experiences, opinions, skills and strengths could all be leveraged to create an effective solution for a prevalent social issue. The former consultant in our group had amazing deck-making skills and the member who previously worked in policy was instrumental in selecting our argument and how we structured our thoughtful responses. Everyone contributed something different that became a critical component of our final product.

My interest in participating in Social Impact at Kellogg was originally sparked during Preview Day and Day at Kellogg (DAK), and now after Social Impact Days, my interest has been further solidified. I am already contemplating how I will incorporate the Kellogg Inner City Mentoring Club, Impact Consulting Club and Kellogg Board Fellows Program into my already jam-packed schedule. I look forward to participating in these Social Impact extracurriculars, as I know that each will add a unique value to my time at Kellogg.

I absolutely recommend that every Kellogg student adds Social Impact engagement to his or her Kellogg experience prior to graduation. (With 13 Net Impact-affiliated student clubs to choose from, you are guaranteed to find a club that matches your interests and skillsets.)

As for future Kellogg students, I recommend that you jumpstart your Kellogg journey by attending Social Impact Days, a one-of-a-kind experience that I have found to be life-changing.

Haven't heard back from my alumni interviewer who I emailed Friday afternoon yet about scheduling a time yet and I leave for vacation this coming Saturday. Hoping I hear back and it works out! Kellogg gives you a 2 week deadline to have the interview once you get the email.

Scheduled my alumni interview for this weekend (West Coast)!

From my understanding, the interviewer only sees the candidates resume... Do you guys think it's worth noting my gmat score on my resume at all? I obviously wouldn't need it on the resume I submitted to the admissions dept, but would it be useful for the interviewer?

I wouldn't worry about adding it in. The interviewer isn't assessing your academics, but rather fit.

I agree. It's not relevant for the interview.

In a similar situation. Waiting patiently for a response is painful. Figure I'll call the number I was given tomorrow.

Hey! Is there anyone here who's completed his or her interview off campus with an alumnus?

I'd love to know if there's any trend in the kinds of questions that are being asked, whether the duration of the interview is fixed as it is for a few peer schools, etc.

Mine's later this week, and I'm getting quite nervous to be honest.

Quick question - had an interview yesterday via Skype, and it only lasted 25 mins (including the 3 questions I asked). From what I have read the standard time is around an hour, so I am not sure what the short interview means. I answered all questions quite well and as thoroughly as I could, but the interviewer did not ask any follow up questions and just moved on to the next one on the list. He did smile a few times but that's as much of a response I got. What do you guys think?

Did the adcom not give you an expectation of how long the interview should last? It seems like they would've told you what to expect so that you could block your time as needed. Where are you seeing they're usually an hour (that sounds VERY long to me...)?
