4-6 weeks until the interview roll out. Sep 20 to Oct 25 ~ 5 weeks. So the chances are slim. We need to brace ourselves for a DING :(

I may be wrong with what I am writing below. But I have some faith in my hypothesis.

Within the Indian Admissions Bucket, Kellogg has an immediate idea of who they want and who they don't. This is even before they read your essays. They also know what kind of applicant is treating them as a safe school and won't join.

As an Indian, you are to have atleast 5-6 points above their average GMAT or 10 above their median. As an Indian male you better turn up with a 760, 770 or 780 to be absolutely safe. I have a 750, I received a response- "Oh, that's just 10 below the 99%ile" . The person responding was relevant enough to give me a chill and even reconsider rewriting the GMAT. Kellogg wants to outdo everyone in GMAT scores. Everyone else wants to outdo everyone else on GMAT Scores. We have not reached the peak or bottom of the GMAT war.

Second, If you are IIT+ McK + Blackstone or IIT+4 yrs WE anywhere then they know you have applied to HBS and W, if not Stanford also. You are still going to get in. But depending on the number of these applicants, and the eventual yield, Kellogg will decide its Waitlists, and number of other graduates from non IITs, or elsewhere, with high GMATs, that it has to now pretend to like. The kind of applicant they can place at Deloitte or PWC Strategy& without much hassle.

Your essays are secondary, they will barely care if you don't put up the stats. Adcom has a very straight forward line- "If this application had a higher GMAT then it would have garnered much more interest" . I have heard this one and I have not forgotten it.


Jesus Christ, are you serious? I have a 740 but this post makes me feel like I might need to consider taking the GMAT again. Is this valid for all Indian nationals or for people who've studied and worked in India. I studied abroad (Singapore) and have been living and working there since. Does that make any difference? I feel like anything above 700 on the GMAT depends at least a little bit on luck and I could've scored 700 or 770 on the same paper on another day. Just the idea of trying to improve 740 sounds super hectic.

I don't think where you studied and live matters. If you are a Indian citizen, you compete in that pool.

I don't know man . I regret writing that post . But if you go by the trend of interviews that's how the sorting is happening . 760 plus consultants and operations and marketing people . Followed by 750 plus people of the same profile . I wonder if any finance people are being interviewed at all.

Your international background will obviously help . You don't need me to tell you that.
