Lol it was just a "sorry you didn't get in" call. Nice gesture but not sure what the benefit is for them and for me...

Well Kellogg is a different type of b-school with the interviewing everyone and emphasizing personality more. I think that may be a bit of the old Dean Jacobs spirit combined with you being a Norhwestern undergrad alumnus.

Yeah I think the undergrad connection had a lot to do with it. Got some nice closure before starting school, so can't complain :-)

I am slightly confused with the wording of "International Experience"

International Experience:
Instructions: List up to six academic, professional or volunteer experiences abroad. (Time spent living abroad as a child can be categorized as academic.) Please do not include personal vacation or travel.

I am from India but I have been in the US for the past 7 years.
In my case, does "international" mean my experience in India or my experience in USA?

If you became immigrant, then list only the time you were in the US as international experience. For example- In 7 years in the US, if you became immigrant in 2015. Then list the pervious 5 years. Or you can list entire 7 years if you are not an immigrant to the US.

I am in the Bay Area and have done a Kellogg Class visit.
Any advantage of choosing to do a Kellogg onsite interview vs an offsite interview?

No difference technically. But do understand that off campus will most probably be done with an alum while onsite can either be an adcom member or a current student. So pick the one that you are most comfortable/confident about clicking with. No other reason.

International experience is any experience outside your country of citizenship or where outside a country where you’ve spent majority of your life. For you, your international experience will be 7 years in US. Make sure to not talk about your time in US when you came as a visitor.

Understood. Thank you very much.
I would prefer to take the chance of impressing the AdCom but since I'm applying on deadline day and the on-campus slots are on a first-come first-serve basis, do I run the risk of getting a "waiver"?
Is it likely to be safer bet that I will get an interview if I pick off-campus in a big city like SF?

There are tons of on-campus slots available. You won't miss out on it. Off-campus choice actually runs the risk of waiver sometimes. On-campus is the sure shot way of doing an interview.
I recently booked a slot for 17th Feb.. and I saw majority slots were open.. starting with some time in January and the last one being on Mar 3rd.

No one who chooses on campus gets a waiver. If I were applying again I would chose on campus. You can scroll back in the thread to see how much anxiety was created by me having to wait for my off campus assignment which ended up coming very late due to some logistical issues. In the end instead of an alum I got a Skype Call with an ad com. I have a low gpa but my interview was my best one all application season and I am very certain that it helped to tip the scales in my favor especially because it was an ad com who could advocate for my candidacy in the room. I am not sure that that would have happened that way if I had my original choice of an off campus interview with an alum. So basically if you can do on campus I would absolutely pick on campus.

I agree with stoiczoan, there will be a lot of spots open. I submitted on the deadline date last year and this year in Round 1, and both times, there were many spots available when I submitted. I actually didn't pick a spot until later in the week after submitting.

I submitted my official GMAT score about two weeks ago and got all of my other application materials in prior to the deadline, but my GMAT score report is still showing up as "Awaiting" on my application status.

Is anyone else seeing the same?

Same for me and I ordered my GMAT score report before Christmas. I double checked the GMAC site and it was ordered for Kellogg.

Ok good deal, that makes me feel better. I think they have probably received them but there is some additional level of input on Kellogg's end that is required to get the status changed.

Good luck to you!
