Congratulations you guys. Please let us know how it went while we wait in this purgatory.
argh..yes this is kind of anxiety inducing..there are a lot of Kellogg alums in my area so I am wondering why it is taking awhile....


Just thinking out aloud here, but does anyone think its not just the location. Maybe they match you to someone in your industry (or not in your industry). I know one of the top B schools does the latter (not from your industry alum) - because people from your own industry are more critical of what you say. I am not sure just which school is that.


Thats not true. I was interviewed by a person in PE industry and my profile couldnt have been any farther from PE at that time. Location based matching is definitely a massive reason for how you get invited for the interview. Dont judge your chances based on when you get an invite. It is a long process.

Good luck.

Just got my interview invite! Do you guys know what is the usual modus operandi for these interviews? Also, suit and tie is best, right? (I am male).

Also, do you guys know what is the acceptance rate if you have an interview? Probably higher than 50%, right?

So excited!!!


I would probably go suit and tie but going back to our earlier conversation on attire for the video essay you're probably fine with anything business casual and above. Depends what you're most comfortable in.

Regarding the acceptance rate for interviews I'm sorry to dampen your excitement but Kellogg interviews virtually every applicant (one of the few schools I'm aware of that does this); doesn't really mean much as a sign of your chances. Still exciting and gives you another opportunity to make a good impression and increase your odds of getting in though, so congrats and good luck!


Treat the interviews as job applications for post MBA roles and most if not all of these roles want you to come fully dressed in business formals. So go in business formals.

Quoting from the 2016 thread, where Narenn quoted from the 2015 thread.

Narenn wrote:
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.

What’s your profile/GMAT like? Last year early invites went to a high GMAT scorers. Not sure if there’s anything to read into it.

Hi scores are in the thumbnail - profile is nothing great have a 3yr undergrad from the University of Pune and 5 years of workex. Haven't heard anything from anywhere yet and going a little crazy now which I KNOW is unhealthy...and I still have to submit 2 more apps and I'm doing a great disservice to those by lurking here all day obsessing.

3 Indian 760s (Prole, you and I) and a 770 (@kmwantstogoschool) in the last few posts. Surely something else is up. This week should show us that something.

EDIT

Let's do a city-wise breakdown. I am in Delhi. Souvick, you're in Bangalore, right? What about km and prole?

Hi everyone,
I received an invite to interview on the 29th of September. My Location - India.

My interview is scheduled for later this week. However, I would like to specify that I had applied to the 1Y MBA program but I hope this is of some help.
