I still haven't gotten an invite yet and I'm in the US. Which leads me to believe that there are plenty more to come.

Or it might be the case that we are not good enough to get an invite. For example I know a russian girl who got an invite from Kellogg on the second day after the deadline. And I am waiting for a month already. Looks like that's it :)) However I don't give up and lose hope.


Kellogg is very clear that they do not read applications until you have completed an interview or they have issued you an interview waiver. So let's not speculate.

Hmm. And what is considered as an interview waiver? So you can be rejected from Kellogg before they even read your application? Clarify please, mate!

You should probably look up Kellogg’s interview policy.

I already did that 1000 times, thank you man!! I would not ask if that was super clear. I don't understand how that works. What is a waiver? They just write me " Ruslan hi! Your interview is cancelled. Wait to december 13". Like that? "If you receive a waiver, you might be contacted on skype".

Off-Campus Interview Request
If you request an off-campus interview, you will be notified of your assignment or waiver via email within four to six weeks from the application deadline. Off-campus interviews are conducted by members of Kellogg’s Alumni Admissions Organization.

Interview Waiver
Due to the high demand for interviews and limited availability of interviewers, you may receive an interview waiver. Waivers will not have a negative impact on your candidacy.

Phone or Skype Interview
If your interview is waived, the admissions committee may contact you to schedule a phone or Skype interview. If you receive a waiver, you may not request a phone or Skype interview.


If your interview does get waived, you’ll get an email informing you of that. At that point you have two options. Either get selected for interview after they read your application or get denied in December.

Now it's clear, thank you. So the most logical thing here is computerbased weeding out sort of system. They weed out best candidates, who get direct invites for the interviews. Others are automatically waived, and through that low-bracket they weed out those who are better.

For sure it is not the matter of luck. The russian girl who has been invited for the interview had very good tests scores and GPA, WE and so on. As one consultant told me "Ruslan, with your GPA you are always in low-bracket. You just need to wait and hope that there would be no professional athletes with GPA higher than yours. So it is more of a background thing."

Nah dude. That's not how it works at all. It's all based on location. If you get a waiver THEN they'll look at your scores etc.

They also said to wait 4-6 weeks for your assignment and the 4 week mark is this Wednesday. My advice is to chill. Don't waste your time trying to come up with theories that can't be confirmed and definitely don't compare yourself to others.

No worries. We are obviously all in peak anxiety mode waiting on invitations. It is hard to not read into every little thing that happens but it will also save you a lot of stress to just try to go with the flow. I am also in the low GPA boat so I feel your pain for sure..I am immensely jealous of your Tepper invite!! Things are going to work out just fine for all of us I know regardless of what happens with any individual school. Best of luck to you.

Had my alumni interview today and it went great, very conversational, had a really good connection. No surprise questions. She seemed interested in what I was saying and was eager to share her experiences and answer my questions. I wonder how much it weighs in the admissions process.

Does anyone know if they release all decisions at the same time on December 13?


I'm wondering about that too! About to have my alumni interview this Saturday and I'm wondering if it's just a waiting game until December 13 after the interview.

Did they ask you any questions about your weaknesses, what other schools you're applying to, why should we take you, more challenging questions like that?

Can you give some examples? Were surprising questions more about yourself or about your knowledge of Kellogg?

Kellogg will release all its results on the results day with acceptance calls starting around 7-8 am (Central) and ding emails later in the afternoon/evening.

I completed my on campus interview, and the advice that I would give is be able to tie everything to Kellogg and why you want an MBA. I was asked the basic questions, and then a follow up pertaining to the school. For example, I was asked about a weakness / area with room for improvement. After answering, the follow up was how would attending Kellogg allow for me to continue to improve in this area?

I had no real surprises - so I guess it just depends on the interviewer! Good luck to all :)

I wish it had been that easy for me. I spent days and days preparing and rehearsing bullet point answers. All went out the window as soon as we sat in a loud cafe next to a construction site. Plus the guy was not only soft-spoken but had no specificity in his questions which threw me off a bit.

So when I wasn't having to ask him to repeat the question or wait for construction to stop in between my answers he would say something along the lines of "when is a time your team had a toxic obstacle".

So I ask for clarification on if he meant an obstacle that led to tension within a team or a difficult obstacle (he was a non native English speaker so wanted to be sure I was answering the right question). To which he would respond, completely seriously "I don't know... whichever...neither...both". So I didn't say anything poorly but wow was I thrown off my game. He also deadpanned looked at me during my answers without nodding or smiling or...blinking...

Super nice guy and definitely smart but conversationally my interview was definitely with its challenges.

Wow! Definitely a different experience. I would imagine that they take the interviewers' input with a grain of salt.

Also, while I had an overall positive experience... that doesn't necessarily mean I did well. I know at my current job if we're interviewing someone clearly under qualified we just throw them softballs... hope that's not the case here :lol:
