Is it my impression or did Kellogg waive a very small number of interviews this year? ?

I also received that today. I feel it is game over with that. :(


Copying a post from the 2015 discussion thread. It is quite common for Indian candidates to get their interviews waived.

str1der wrote:
To everyone applying from India. I am a reapplicant and hence am acquainted with how the process works. Let me detail it as I am sure it will calm some nerves:

1. Kellogg, by design, interviews each applicant. However, in areas of high demand of interviews such as India, it is not possible for them to match their alumni to each applicant as each alumni can do only as many interviews
2. Once both Part 1 and Part 2 are submitted, one of the following three scenarios will occur:

i. You will be invited to interview on a day in late Oct/Early Nov. This is essentially an interview day - many alumni will gather at a hotel and many applicants will be interviewed. No clear formula on how the invitees are decided, but I think it depends on who submtited Part 1 earlier as from Kellogg's vantage point everyone has to be interviewed and hence no one is at a higher or lower priority at that point. Once the interview has been completed, the adcom will review your essays and recommendations and you then sit tight until the decision date to hear back from them.

ii. You will get an interview waiver. The Kellogg team does NOT read an applicant's file until their interview is complete. Hence, to avoid delays, they start reading the application first for those in India who weren't sent invited in the first go. The waiver does NOT affect your application negatively - it just means that they are waiving your interview in order to begin reviewing your application

iii. If they like your application, you will receive an invitation to interview. This will be a one to one with an alumnus here, or a Skype with the adcom in Chicago

iv. It may also happen that you don't get this invite after the waiver, in which case it is safe to assume you have been dinged

3. Hence, unlike other countries, in India Kellogg does NOT interview everyone. Also, most people receive a waiver which can then convert/not convert into an interview invite at a later stage.
4. You will NOT be admitted to the program without an interview. Hence, if after the waiver you do not receive an invite, it means you have been dinged.
5. Dates: Please read last year's thread. If I recall correctly, people received the first invites 2 weeks after the Part 2 deadline. People who first received a waiver and then an invite (such as me) kept hearing throughout November. I got my invite around Mid Nov.
6. Hence, if by end Nov you haven't heard from them after a waiver, safe to move on to alternate plans
7. Most people in India will get a waiver - it will test your nerves (tested mine) but it is actually a blessing in disguise. If you receive an invite after a waiver, that means the adcom liked your application and wants to know more - that is a positive sign any day of the year

Hope this answers your queries. Indian applicants should NOT compare their interview timeline to foreign applicants.

Anecdotally, I have heard they are. I have heard that Booth tends to give out more merit based aid than Kellogg, which doesn't surprise me after visiting and interviewing with both schools.

What I learned during Net Impact Week 2016 [#permalink]

FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: What I learned during Net Impact Week 2016
https://kelloggmbastudents.files.wordpress.com/2016/11/social-impact.jpg?w=627

At Kellogg, we’re deeply committed to developing the next generation of socially responsible leaders. Social impact is woven throughout all aspects of the student experience, including course offerings, academic research, career services and experiential learning opportunities.

One notable experiential learning opportunity is Net Impact Week, a series of events organized by Kellogg’s Net Impact Club. Through a number of alumni panels, workshops and community service opportunities, Net Impact Week invites students — and the broader Kellogg community — to drive social change using the power of business.

Below, student H. Kay Howard shares personal insights that she gained during Net Impact Week 2016.

Just one year ago, I kicked off my Kellogg School journey with Net Impact Week, an event that allowed me to find and engage with “my people” – those who came to business school with an interest in driving profit and making a positive impact on the world.

That week, I met the key protagonists of my social impact experience at Kellogg; I befriended the classmates who would later help me prep for social sector consulting interviews, and I bonded with students that later shared the life-changing experience of traveling to Kenya and Tanzania for my Global Immersion in Management (GIM) trip.

As a second-year student who now serves in a leadership role for Kellogg’s Net Impact Club, I was incredibly excited for my second Net Impact Week, but doubted that it would be as formative as the first… However, I was wrong!

This year’s Net Impact Week was equally impactful, teaching attendees how to #IncorporateImpact into their lives and careers, and also pushed participants to dig deeper towards truly understanding the communities we seek to serve by challenging us to go beyond “our people” and our preconceived ideas. The theme of impact and inclusion resonated throughout the week’s programming, with inspiring overtones from my classmates that reinvigorated me to spend more time listening and learning before taking action.

This theme was especially evident during the Social Entrepreneurs at Kellogg panel, where classmates shared the highs and lows of starting their own social enterprises while in business school. Tiffany Smith ’17, co-founder of Tiltas (formerly OrangePrint), a platform that connects formerly incarcerated men and women with employment opportunities, discussed how venturing into a prison gave her fresh, first-hand insight about her startup. By having one-on-one conversations with inmates, Tiffany was able to identify the true needs of her clients and build stronger solutions for overcoming the barriers associated with job placements.

During the Incorporating Impact into your Life panel, Professors Linda Darragh and Paul Christensen discussed the importance of immersing yourself in another culture in order to realize the emotions, values and societal context of a group before attempting to craft solutions for consumers. Professor Christiansen emphasized that it is important to pursue inclusive growth – economic growth that uplifts everyone, instead of widening the income gap.

One of the most powerful takeaways from Net Impact Week came from Richard Odior ’17 and his encouragement to translate “head to heart to action”. During the event Why Kellogg Wore Black, he called for students to gain awareness, cultivate empathy and act accordingly to address systematic racism in our broader society and to support classmates who experience that discrimination.

After a week of gaining awareness and practicing empathy, I hope that the Kellogg student body is inspired not only to #IncorporateImpact into their future actions, but also to continually return to the “head to heart” phase of listening, assessing the intricate environmental, social and inclusion challenges faced by different populations in order to inform an effective plan of action for impact. I personally plan to keep this mantra in mind in my discussions with my classmates and my future career.

She is the Net Impact Club treasurer, Education Industry Club president and a board fellow for the Howard Area Community Center. This past summer, she interned at the Civic Consulting Alliance, a Chicago-based public sector consulting firm.

Got an email from the Kellogg Admissions Director this morning saying that they are done conducting interviews and are now reviewing all applications for admission and scholarships.

Can't wait to hear back. Kellogg really impressed me during my visit.

Hello XXX,

Have you found yourself wondering what has been happening with your Kellogg application since you submitted it 8 weeks ago? While you committed time and energy to crafting your application before submission, since then, we have committed time and energy to its review. We know the wait is long, and appreciate your patience as we review and consider each and every application.

Dedicated to identifying the future students we will welcome to our dynamic Kellogg community, our team has just completed the Round 1 interviews. Making every effort to interview all of our applicants reflects our commitment to a holistic review process for every candidate and our commitment to choose a diverse class across all dimensions. We believe our holistic & comprehensive review process reflects Kellogg’s culture and ensures the success of our future students.

From now until December 14th, my team will continue to consider each application for not just admission to Kellogg but also for scholarship awards. The admissions team will consider your leadership, your professional accomplishments, and your academic acumen and will award merit scholarships based on these criteria.

The admissions team has really enjoyed getting to know all of our Round 1 applicants and we wish you all the best for the holiday season!

Kind regards,

Melissa Rapp
Director of Admissions

As compared to last year, this thread seems awfully quiet. The days can't go by fast enough! I assume that the director's email means that those of you that haven't been interviewed will probably be dinged/waitlisted, right?

The forum sure seems quiet, but I assure you there's a lot of anticipation and nervousness in the minds of many R1 prospectives including myself. You're right, these days really do need to get a move on.

About the non-interviewed candidates, I'm not sure whether Kellogg waitlists applicants without interview. If it doesn't, that unfortunately translates to dings for some. But I guess we'll only know on the 14th!

I second that. Not sure why applicants are less optimistic this time to share their views/experiences/updates with others. I can understand applicants' nervousness and anxiety but I feel that participating in forum discussion is a best way to share application issues with fellow applicants, try to solve them by utilizing collective wisdom of applicants, and relieve stress arising from the application process by engaging in casual/friendly conversation with others, knowing their stories, etc. Good luck to all!

Thanks everyone who shared their interview experiences here. In addition to what you have posted, I am re-posting here few good interview debriefs collected from previous Kellogg discussions for those who are about to be interviewed.

Hey guys! Just had my interview, I really liked the style, but unfortunately we started a bit late (they had technical problems) and I didn't have an opportunity to ask questions about Kellogg that I had. It was a Skype interview with the adcom, very nice lady.
Duration: 45 minutes.
Questions: Why that major?
Why that undergrad school?
Why Kellogg?
Why MBA?
Why now?
Your best achievement at work?
Why you changed your job?

Edited: "Is there anything else about yourself you want to tell me?"

I felt like I spoke a bit too much, but this was very unusual format to me )

Just had my interview with an alumnus. Questions were very predictable- nothing different from a behavioral-based job interview.
- walk me through your resume
- tell me about a leadership experience
- tell me about your approach to teamwork
- tell me about a feedback you received and how you have incorporated that
- why MBA and why now
- why kellogg
- what do you hope to be involved in outside of classroom while at kellogg
- what do you think you can bring to kellogg

it lasted about half an hour including my time to ask him questions. it was very laid-back but i still wore a suit and the interviewer turned up in jeans and a plaid shirt haha. didn't hurt to overdress i guess. good luck everybody!



Thanking your interviewer.

Hey! In a similar situation I wrote to admissions e-mail and asked them to provide me with the name of AO who interviewed me in order to write a thank you letter, I indicated my name and time of the interview. They responded with her name and contact options.

Blast from the Past: Interview debriefs of previous Kellogg applicants

Had my interview yesterday on Skype...indian applicant..it was quite conversational. Same questions...tell me about yourself? Challenging task? Situation when you managed a difficult team? Strength weakness? One question on leadership? Short term and long term? Why mba? Why Kellogg? What will you contribute to Kellogg? Questions for us?
Interviewer was super friendly and she was from adcom. And I think the choice of who gets an invite for interview from Kellogg is completely random, as she said this is a blind interview and they have not even seen my application. I would believe them so people who get a waiver..sit tight ur invite will be on the way :)

Does anyone have an idea on the text of the report sent by the interviewer to the school? I mean is it subjective, or objective or detailed or just a recommendation on whether the interviewer recommends the candidate or not?


There really isn't very much info online pertaining to what is contained in the alumni reports. I would bet that there is a confidentiality clause that the interviewers must abide by so as not to skew future interviewee's behavior. I imagine the interviewer's feedback is like a trustworthy letter of rec, which might include some subjective info, plus maybe a handful of 1-10 rankings, giving an overall objective flavor.



During my interview(and probably during other's as well), the interviewer emphasized a lot on the point that 'this wasn't a formal interview' and a conversation to know me better as a person.
So my guess is the same.. They are just trying to know us as a person and probably write about us in the same way. Maybe some questions and rankings etc. Two things that probably are interpreted by the adcom from this :
1. ranking - whether these match with the type of content and reco's they get. Obviously they trust their alumni more than the face value of our essays and recos.
2. They understand what kind of people we are. :P like the first impressions etc. Good to talk to, pleasing and humorous nature etc etc.

Thats what I could understand from my 'research' on specifically Kellogg interviews. May not apply to other interviews. Maybe im wrong for Kellogg also!!

I've just had an interview with a lady from admissions team via Skype. It lasted roughly 40 minutes and was quite relaxed.

First, she asked me to walk her through my resume and my experience at college. Then we talked about my career progression at the current employer, and discussed my strengths and weaknesses. I also got several standard questions on "Why MBA? Why now? Why Kellogg" and also talked about my extracurricular activities. In the end, I was asked if there is anything else I would like to add, and got to ask questions myself.

Overall, it was much less scarier experience that I anticipated, with no unexpected questions :wink:

Had my interview today.
Interviewer was a very nice lady. Went to a Business Strategy class later and it was really cool. There was a lot of cold calling and a lot more jokes. I felt students were well engaged in the class as well.
Back to the interview,
Usual questions...
Why MBA?
What did you do at your work - and a lot of discussion about that?
What qualities do you think should a leader have?
Why not the MMM program? (this question arose since my stated goals for MBA fit well with the MMM program)
Any weakness's you want to overcome?
What would your co-workers say about you?
Were you in any situation where you had to deal with a challenging person?
What courses would you take at Kellogg? ( A variation of this)
What's the most challenging thing in your job?
What clubs would you take part in at Kellogg?
What unique experiences would you bring to your class? - I fumbled here
Do you want to add anything else? I said No which I now realize is a mistake :D
Any questions for me?

Also, for the people going for an on-campus interview, go in at least an hour early, it's very difficult to find parking (I got a $100 parking ticket as a souvenir). And FYI 1.6 miles in Evanston is >15 mins which sucks.

The campus was very beautiful this time of the year. You could spend a day just walking around or by the boardwalk.

From what I've heard, they try calling all admitted candidates. Waitlisted and denied candidates receive an email notification.

From what I've heard, they try calling all admitted candidates. Waitlisted and denied candidates receive an email notification.

Thanks buddy. And I read somewhere that the calling happens a day before the deadline, at least happened that way last year.

Here's a post from the forum last year. Looks like all calls go out only on the notification date.... although they can start pretty early in the day.

As compared to last year, this thread seems awfully quiet. The days can't go by fast enough! I assume that the director's email means that those of you that haven't been interviewed will probably be dinged/waitlisted, right?

The forum sure seems quiet, but I assure you there's a lot of anticipation and nervousness in the minds of many R1 prospectives including myself. You're right, these days really do need to get a move on.

About the non-interviewed candidates, I'm not sure whether Kellogg waitlists applicants without interview. If it doesn't, that unfortunately translates to dings for some. But I guess we'll only know on the 14th!

I second that. Not sure why applicants are less optimistic this time to share their views/experiences/updates with others. I can understand applicants' nervousness and anxiety but I feel that participating in forum discussion is a best way to share application issues with fellow applicants, try to solve them by utilizing collective wisdom of applicants, and relieve stress arising from the application process by engaging in casual/friendly conversation with others, knowing their stories, etc. Good luck to all!


I think this year school threads are quieter in general and I would attribute that to applicants being more knowledgeable or spending more time on searching for information themselves, both good traits to have. Kellogg will not WL candidates without interviews, similar to other top schools. This way they can focus on using their resources on other things. Same thing happened last year as well and unfortunately people did get ding emails on the day of the results.

Good luck to all. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
