FYI: to those still waiting for off campus interview assignments I didn’t receive mine until the day after the waiver notifications went out so don’t freak out yet.

After the waiver notifications? They said that we should expect to receive interview invites 4-6 weeks after the deadline? It hasn't even been three weeks yet?

Yes I was a round 1 applicant who requested off campus but I didn’t get mine until 7 weeks after the deadline and it was after they issued waivers.

Most people received them about 3 weeks after the deadline and then it was very quiet so I thought I was going to be waived. I imagine it will be similar for some applicants this round too.

Woah. That's wild. Trying to keep myself occupied with deadlines for my other schools. 7 weeks. Woof. While I know a waiver isn't an issue, I certainly think an interview will strengthen my chances...

Hoping my location in DC expedites the off-campus process..

I’m located in a large US city as well. Your location doesn’t do much for expediting the process. It’s really all about interviewer availability. There were/are tons of Kellogg alumns in my city but I still didn’t hear anything until after the waiver notifications went out at the 6 week mark. (I didn’t get a waiver with everyone else)

To be perfectly honest, although Kellogg says that a waiver doesn’t affect your chances of getting in, I’m not sure I agree with that....maybe it’s true for an average candidate but given my round 1 experience I am not sure that I would’ve been admitted if I had not gotten an interview. Also I don’t remember anyone on here who got a waiver from round 1 and then got an interview.

Sorry if this is coming off as overly negative, that’s not my intention at all I just want other applicants to be aware that you definitely want an interview and not a waiver. And if there is anything that you can do to guarantee an interview (like traveling to campus) and Kellogg is your top choice I would absolutely do it.

Not negative at all. I wonder if they pool together off-campus requests from the same cities and then allocate out the limited alumni resources to the most competitive applicants?

There has been some speculation that this is what happens but we will never know for sure!

Well no use obsessing over. I certainly feel I submitted the most competitive application possible. I also would've opted for on-campus had I known they had Saturday interview slots. Work prevents me from traveling to Chicago and taking time off during the week. Oh well.

You will get it. Be Patient. :thumbup: Going to Campus for interview really helps if you haven't visited it yet!. I guess many more invites to go out by the end of this week.
