Relax. I'm not an admissions expert and nobody here can second-guess about an interview they didn't witness, but a short interview could have many reasons. Think about it from the standpoint of pure logistics: Maybe they went overtime with the person they interviewed before you and tried to keep yours shorter in order to stick with their schedule. Maybe they simply had everything they needed and didn't want to artificially extend it. It even could mean that your interviewer needed to use the bathroom. Sounds funny, but while they are professionals, they are human after all. And yes, it could also mean that it went so bad, they thought it had no sense to continue. However, most likely that wasn't the case if you think it went great (and aren't massively lacking self-awareness and/or didn't prepare well). I don't know if that helps, but you did your best, now it's over. Don't stress out about things you can't change and trust the process!

Good luck!


The whole “it went so bad, they thought it made no sense to continue” thing doesn’t happen. Interviews are pretty standardized you may get some that go over due to a chatty interview but they will never cut off an interview early. They have a certain number of questions they have to ask. You just may have answered them more succinctly than others and that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

I think it’s ok for you to reach out to admissions in this situation particularly because the 6 week notification deadline has past.

Thanks! Yeah, I figured I'd reach out to them sometime next week, especially since other applicants from my city have received waivers. Do you remember if this happened to anyone last year?

Happened to me actually. I ended up getting a skype interview invite a couple of days after waivers went out.

Thank you! Really needed that sense check from someone with a more realistic perspective. Wish you the best of luck! Let's hope we'll be hearing good news soon.

Happened to me as well. Got an interview invite exactly a week after others got waivers.

I am planning to apply for the 1 yr full time MBA. I am unable to find the class profile of class of 2018.
Anybody aware of the same?

Thanks, though this is without academic averages, any idea on those? And has Kelloggs stopped publishing class profiles after 2016?

Did any 1Y applicant get an invite to attend an online chat? Do we need to attend the event, given I am no more interested in applying next year.
P.S. I have received a waiver and haven't received any subsequent skype interview invite.

Congrats!!
Did you have a range of dates you could choose from, say over 1 or 2 weeks?
I got an interview waiver sometime back. Expecting to receive an invite sometime next week, that is if I am going to get one. I am travelling for work next week, so wondering if there is some flexibility around dates you can interview on. Or one has to interview within 3-4 days of getting the invite.

For those of us who got waivers, would you know approx till when we can expect the invite if there's one. I guess by end of next week. Would you agree?

Never heard anyone receive an invite after a waiver. I too didn’t receive a waiver last year and then suddenly one week after some received their waivers I received a Skype interview invite. Figured out that’s a common case.

Question that perhaps FuturePM91 can help with: Kellogg has an official GMAT score of mine from last year, and also an official GRE score from this year. The GRE score is what I want to be considered in my application, it's much better than the GMAT. However, I can't cancel the GMAT score. Will Kellogg automatically consider my most recent/highest score when reviewing my application? Or is there a way to prioritize or delete a score right in the application?

Thanks!

Had my interview on Skype, but my interviewer didn't share her email ID with me. She mentioned she would get back to me on some information I asked for, do I just skip the thank you note and wait for her to email me? I'm guessing it isn't a big deal, but its hard to not overthink this.

I know very few people hear back from Kellogg after receiving a waiver but any clue on by when do they reach out to you if they'd like to interview you? Or in other words, at what point in November, do you just give up hope?

If I were you, I would just wait for her message and then reply to that email thanking her effort in answering the question and organizing the interview in general.

Hi! They will just consider your highest score.
