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

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.


Congratulations. If you don't mind, whats your background like - GMAT, background etc?

I think we can all agree that the worst part of waiting is deciding if you should get a haircut yet or not... I'm right there where if I interview this week my hair looks good and I don't run the risk of a bad haircut but any longer and I'll have to take that risk.

I feel like I may be focussing on the wrong things here...

As per the last year threads, people from India didn't get invites until november.
Not sure if that's the case this time as well.

That’s not true. Last year so many Indians got invites in the end of Sep and finished their interview in October.

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?[/quote]

I am in Mumbai.

do adcoms evaluate your profile before the interview or after the interview is complete? Any ideas?

After. If they can’t interview you, they’ll issue you a waiver.

Kellogg's official policy is that they do not read your application until you have completed an interview. However, if you request an off campus interview and you live in a remote area or an area with a lot of applicants (such as India) where it will be logistically difficult to schedule an interview with an alum in your area, you may receive an interview waiver. This will allow them to review your application without an interview. Then if after they review your app they are interested in learning more they will reach out to schedule a skype interview.

That's quick. By this speed I reckon you'll have an admit by the weekend :)

On a serious note, how did it go?

Did your application status change on the portal once you were invited to the interview?

Ha if only!

I think it went fine- lasted a full hour. Most of the questions were straight forward. Only one that threw me off was to talk about was what people hated most about me, which was slightly odd.

Happy to be done- and trying to forget all about Kellogg till the final decision!

Hmm unsure if I'm looking at the correct area of my portal, but I don't see any changes.

My assigned interviewer hasn't responded to my e-mail or my call. What should I do?

If it’s been a week since you emailed the interviewer, you should contact Kellogg admissions - at least that was the directive in my email for alum interview.
