Does your portal update in any way once the interview report is submitted? I know there's nothing else for us to do, but it's been over a week since I interviewed and I'm curious if I'll see it got uploaded or not. Thanks in advance and good luck all!

Not all Indians/ Chinese I believe. Many folks from this part of world haven't heard back or either their interview has been waived....I am just trying to figure out how many Indians usually receive off campus invite..

I have received neither an invite nor a waiver, and I'm located in DC and submitted on December 26th. Just giving you a reference.

Thanks! Based on my understanding of the Kellogg-specific process, they do not open an applicant's file until an interview is given. If they don't feel they will have time to complete their review, they will waive the interview, begin the review of the application and reach back out to schedule a Skype interview should they be interested. This notion that waivers are granted to less competitive applicants isn't accurate.

Ok...may be you are right....only Adcom can answer that...what about weightage of interview specific to admission to Kellogg? Any pointers there..

Given the program's focus on collaboration, I think they place reasonable weight on the interview. I believe they're looking for team players who thrive in an interactive and collaborative environment. Again, it simply serves as another data point for the Admission Committee.

So. I just came from DAK last week and I know Kellogg is known as the “collaboration” school but I think it is much deeper than that. They are looking for a specific type of person that is not only a good “collaborator” but also just has a strong desire to help other people succeed. At DAK they frequently talked about creating high impact low ego leaders who lead with heart. Therefore in an interview I would focus more on how your goals impact others beyond yourself and show how you care about enabling the success of the team. To me, that’s a bit more than just “works well in teams” it’s a specific type of person. If you can capture that in your interview you will do well.

I also believe that finding these types of leaders is the #1 priority for Kellogg so your interview and essays matter more at Kellogg than other schools such as a Wharton or Yale which cares a lot more about your numbers.

And that makes much more sense. Thanks for the input. Any insight on the waiver/interview process? I know quite a few folks are concerned regarding the Kellogg-specific process.

Hey all! Quick question. I have finished my interview for the MMM program a couple of weeks ago, and am waiting for a response. Does anyone know if Kellogg desponds by the decision date of March 28 or only ON the date itself? Asking because I have to commit to another program by then and I really don't want to without hearing back from Kellogg.

Hey khan27m 90% sure they called me on December 13th, which was the decision date for Round 1, but might have been the day before (it's kind of a haze now but pretty sure it was the morning of). Wasn't following the forums enough to see if they maybe called international students the day before. For schools that aren't rolling admissions/notification (Kellogg is not), the earliest I've seen schools call in advance is Ross calling US admits two days in advance. I imagine you need to commit to the other program earlier than that though. From reading these forums it seems that the top schools pretty much never give acceptances/rejection notifications early and conflicts with deposit deadlines are pretty common. You may have better luck asking the other program for an extension on making a deposit. Most of the time though people end up making the deposit and then if they get into the other school they end up just losing the first deposit since it's small compared to the price you're paying for your MBA and hopefully the ROI for a school like Kellogg (but I know in the moment that the $1,000-$2,000 is a big deal and it would be hard for me myself to do that). Not sure if someone else has stronger thoughts on whether still asking Kellogg would hurt your candidacy or not, but deposit extensions seem far more common from this forum than top schools notifying a candidate early (even in circumstances that might be considered more special or extreme than a deposit deadline).
