I am also waiting to hear about an interview.. also based in NYC :) We might have to wait the full six weeks

Would it be at all possible to email Kellogg and ask for an on-campus interview instead? or too late?


I called and asked that exact question...they said that it I should just wait and can expect an email (no real details provided into what the email would say) in a week or so. Hopefully that email is interview related and not rejection notice :)

interesting.. thanks so much for sharing. it sounds to me like we are going to get interview waivers -- not a rejection but will definitely mean they will be reviewing our apps before inviting us to interview

sigh

I hope not, because as I understand it, interview waivers almost always lead to rejections? Can anyone confirm that?

I'm hoping that there's just a backlog in each of our areas.

Not to worry. I found this on last year's thread

"Hi guys!! There is some good news for applicants who received a waiver(I received one and was confused too). There have been lots of debates over the past week as to whether waiver means a dinge and also as to whether Kellogg does an initial screening before calling applicants for an interview. I happened to speak to a member of the admissions committee at Kellogg and he completely dismissed these points. According to him, Kellogg's interview invites are based on when the application was submitted and also is just a random process of inviting applicants based on alum availability at various locations. In places like India, where the applicant pool is growing tremendously, its not possible to interview many applicants and hence the waiver. Also, he said that an application is not opened until an interview is conducted(expect of course in case of a waiver) and there is no initial screening whatsoever conducted for interview calls. If what he says is true, I think we have a lot of hope. Lets not feel as though we have not received invites because of a weak application. Guys, lets keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best!!!! :)"

I had a blind interview with adcom. She mentioned that she will not be a part of the application review process since she is interviewing me. Also, mentioned that she does not have access to my application essays except the resume.

So I guess what is mentioned above is also true. It may be a random selection of resumes to know a candidate.

Yes, I know of a guy. But just to clarify there's difference between interview waiver vs no interview at all. Waiver candidates may get interview later. This friend of mine got invite just a week before decisions deadline and was finally admitted. I haven't heard anyone getting into without interview.

congrats to both of you for the interview invite

was in same situation: got a skype interview invite: it was pretty conversational, no especially difficult question: walk me through your resume, why mba, why kellogg, your strenght, leadership style, how people around you would describe you..one note though: i was asked to give very specific examples

good luck to you guys

Yea, but I meant the interview call with adcom. I have got an interview waiver. But a subsequent interview call can be expected anytime in between, right?

Hi Erika, I just got done with a skype interview with an alum but can't remember their name! :oops: (The skype call came from a generic MBA Admissions ID). What do you suggest I should do? Do I write to the adcom to share the name and email details of the person who interviewed me and then send them a thank you note?

SBCErikaOlson wrote:
In case this helps anyone else in the coming weeks I just wanted to say that if you don't get your adcom interviewer's direct email address, it's fine to send the message to the general adcom address that you should have from your interview invite. In the subject line just put: Attention: INTERVIEWER's NAME, Thank You

For alumni interviews everyone would have their alum's email address in the first place in order to set up a time/place for the chat.

Good luck, everyone!

I interviewed with Kellogg this week and my interviewer positively did NOT like me at all. She didn't come from my industry and thought that my career and industry did not warrant an MBA, saying that unless I wanted to go into finance or consulting I was pretty much shooting blanks. Feeling pretty disheartened after the interview given that I thought my application was quite strong otherwise. Pity...
