Congratulations. Did you receive a waiver last week?

So I just got a skype interview invite....I had not been waived previously but I had signed up for an off campus interview with an alum so I guess for whatever reason that didn't work out so I am now doing skype with adcom. There were not a lot of slots to chose from only days left were this Thursday and Friday.

Yes, playing with thumbs will be the best way for the next month :grin: . You wont hear back before the deadline. Admit calls go on from 7-8 AM Central till 2-3 PM Central and then ding emails are sent out.

And the agony of wait only got worse with people receiving Skype invites while we received a waiver. :(

But to be honest, I’d rather be surprised with a Kellogg invite now than keep waiting around.

Sorry to hear that. I got a waiver too this time. I had hoped that you'd get an interview invite.

I guess I didn't realize this would be posted onto the thread too when I updated the decision tracker...but just to give a bit more color on my visit and experience...

I visited Kellogg during Diversity Preview Day (I'm not considered a diversity candidate, but it was the only time I could go). Overall, the programming was great and inspirational. Dean Blount is really something else. I was moved to tears! Hence, I did ask my interviewer what the goals are for Kellogg going forward, what's next and what kind of dean they will be looking for to replace Sally. A lot of this seems to be up in the air, since the search committee was just formed and of course they probably don't have enough information to disclose yet (given that people may post about it online, like I am now).

I talked to over 2 dozen students while there and everyone was very good at representing Kellogg and showing me what it's all about. Having spoken to many other students at other schools, I honestly feel like Kellogg is the most cohesively represented school. Not sure how or why, but I was almost a little suspicious because it was starting to sound rehearsed (though I'm sure it's not). As everyone has probably read about, it's very social, fun and student-self-governed. What also really struck me, was the inclusiveness of families and significant others (or JVs they called them). The new global hub is also AMAZING.

Interview was very standard behavioral questions that you can certainly prepare for in advance and everyone is very nice throughout it. If you do on campus interviews, you will be interviewed by a student or an admissions person who has not read your application.

We're told that once your interviewer submits a report, the committee meets to review your file. By this point, your file will have been read by a student reviewer and a member of the admissions committee. After the interview, everyone (excluding your interviewer if he/she is a student or member of the admissions team - they still never see your files even after the interview) deliberates and comes to a decision.

Fingers crossed! December cannot come soon enough.

Were you interviewed last year? Kellogg seems to one-up its waiver game every year!

Interviewed today with ad com. It was a good experience. The interviewer asked a lot of pointed questions about my current role plus the typical why mba, goals, why Kellogg questions then several leadership and teamwork behavioral questions it was pretty straightforward.

Has anyone who has interviewed seen a "status change"? I saw in previous forums that it is supposed to change, but mine has not (interviewed a week ago)

If you're referring to the "status" on the application management page (so just says status, started, and submitted) then no I don't believe it changes. My application from last year still says "submitted" even though I received a decision.

And given how badly I want to go to Kellogg I would have noticed a change like that last year as I was checking the status page seemingly every day.
