me too.. but lets not think too much about it..it is very natural and normal..there are other parts of applications that can easily compensate for such minor things..I mean despite going through such a hectic process if cutting off in the video essay is going to be the deal breaker then I am better off not going to such school..And i am sure Kellogg is not that kind of school..

Don't worry. Kellogg doesn't ding anyone at this point!

It's very likely that either (i) there's no alum available and your interview will be via skype, or (ii) you'll get the mail soon. Bear in mind that most inverviewers get at least 2 applicants, so maybe yours just scheduled someone else's interview first.

I know the anxiety must be brutal, but just give it a few more days. Best of luck!!

BTW, I attended yesterday's webinar and the adcom person clearly stated that Video essay is the last thing they review in the application. She clearly said that if they decide to admit someone based on other parts of application then it is very unlikely that they will change their mind based on the video essay.

That's amazing insight. Thank you! But I suppose that makes sense. I assume they look at your verbal communication skills in the video essay and thinking on your toes. Which is something they can also gauge from the alumni interview's feedback.

I completed my interview last week with a local alum, it went for 2.5 hours by the time we were done which felt like it flew by as I really enjoyed the exchange we were having. I was just wondering if anyone knew whether or not Kellogg will offer a spot in the 1-year program to applicants for the 2-year program that are higher than average in age/work exp or otherwise?

am just confused here. Is Kellogg different from the rest of the M7s where it interviews almost all the applicants to their resource availability. Meaning that getting an interview is not a step forward to the admission?

Thanks!

In short, yes. I can't speak to how it works for off-campus interviews, but if you are from out of town and wish to have an interview on campus, you can arrange that shortly after completing your application- no invitation required.

Yes. On campus interviews are to be scheduled by the candidate. Off-Campus interviews are schedule based on alumni availability in the candidate's indicated city of preference. In case on unavailability of alumni, the school may issue an interview waiver or schedule a Skype interview. Kellogg is pretty unique in this aspect. The only other top 20 schools I know that permit all interested candidates to schedule an interview are Tuck and Fuqua.

Any insights? How do they compare candidates' performances in such diverse interview situations? Adcom (skype) interviews are always to the point and involve a series of pre-decided questions whereas alumni interviews are completely free-flowing conversations

From a few interview feedbacks it looks like alumns have a form with questions. But I think the adcom bases everyone off their application for the rigour and purpose element. The alumni interview is more cultural...would the alum want that individual in their cohort?

Women in leadership: Lessons from my conversation with Christine Lagar [#permalink]

FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: Women in leadership: Lessons from my conversation with Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the IMF
https://kelloggmbastudents.files.wordpress.com/2016/10/14567383_1359865874024393_6442189506528684728_o.jpg?w=627

Last month, Kellogg had the honor of hosting Christine Lagarde, managing director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF). After a school-wide lecture, 30 students, including myself, had the unique opportunity to attend an intimate roundtable discussion with Madame Lagarde. The conversation primarily focused on women in leadership and the IMF’s international finance policies. Both topics are near and dear to my heart, as I am passionate about international finance and hope to one day lead an organization.

Madame Lagarde began the roundtable discussion with the observation that women leaders are frequently called upon in difficult situations. She cited Iceland and the United States Federal Reserve as examples where women came into challenging economic situations and thrived with their intelligence and attentiveness. She mentioned Angela Merkel several times, noting that Merkel was the most welcoming to smaller and newer nations’ leaders at the last G20 Summit.

Madame Lagarde shared her personal story as well. As the oldest of many boys in her family, she didn’t perceive or encounter discrimination until later in life, when she interviewed at a law firm and was told that women couldn’t make partner status. This anecdote resonated with me, as I am entering the corporate law industry after graduation, where there is still a disparity between the number of male and female senior leaders.

Madame Lagarde advised women in law (and in similar industries) to avoid deliberately hostile environments and to seek opportunities where women can demonstrate their leadership skills. She added that everyone plays a role in building women leaders. In France, there is a program where top banks pledge not participate in financial industry events with organizations that do not include women at the highest levels. I was impressed by this initiative – to me, that’s putting your money where your mouth is!

Madame Lagarde focused her international policy message on the importance of open trade in global markets. I asked her a question about the trade implications of Brexit since I will be working for Davis Polk & Wardwell in London after Kellogg. She explained that while it was too early to tell what will happen, trade between the European countries and the general financial sector will be hurt. She mentioned the Brexit referendum vote was somewhere between “bad” and “very bad”. I was working in London this summer when the referendum passed, and very few people in the corporate bubble believed it would pass. Clearly, we underestimated the magnitude and opinions of those outside of London.

During our roundtable discussion, Madame Lagarde also touched upon the use of central banks, the effect of currency flotation and the role of financial intervention, all of which provided real-world examples of the lessons I learned during my International Finance and Global Entrepreneurial Finance courses at Kellogg.

Overall, this once-in-a-lifetime discussion with Madame Lagarde has broadened my perspectives and understanding of the global economy. Furthermore, the leadership advice that Madame Lagarde shared has better prepared me to lead Kellogg’s Private Equity & Venture Capital (PEVC) Club as a director. Most importantly, however, this opportunity has provided a one-of-a-kind experiential learning experience that I can draw upon throughout the course of my business school and professional careers.

Correct. Kellogg interviews all applicants, so getting interview information from Kellogg does not really mean anything about your odds of moving forward in the process afterward. Most other schools only invite a select subset of applicants to interview, and then only a subset of THOSE applicants eventually get acceptance letters.

Hello everyone,

A question for those who have been interviewed - Does your application status indicate any change? Mine still says 'Received application fees $250' as the last recent activity.
I was done with my interview four days ago.

How do I know whether my interviewer (alum) has submitted the report? Any idea? :?:

Yes, I know someone! To be honest, I'm also waiting like you. All I know is that he had submitted everything including recos by 21st. So the Admissions Committee immediately sent him an interview invite.
My recos got submitted ~6 days after the application deadline. I hope thats why my application hasn't been reviewed.
