shah8 not sure about purely informational chat but as a reminder/FYI on campus interviews are open however international Skype interviews are by invitation only.

I requested an off campus interview (in Vietnam btw), got an interview invitation email on Tuesday. I also got the informational chat email yesterday. Didn't put too much thought into it as I assumed everyone would receive a similar email. Oh well...

Anyone get an email from an adcom member inviting you to an informational chat with them? No word on interview (off campus)

Round 1 admit here, so I hope I can shed some light on this:
  • The informational chat is independent from the interview. I had signed up for this and the first thing the adcom said was: "I just want to make sure you are aware that this isn't part of the application process and will not influence our decision." I think they are also pretty clear about that in the invitation.
  • What is the purpose then? It your chance to ask questions one-on-one about the program. There is no agenda other than your questions.
  • How does it work? Here's what happened in my case: I got a phone call by the adcom; she asked me to introduce myself; then asked if I had any questions and discussed those with me. The time slot is 20 minutes; we went a little over that and it seemed fine.

Obviously I took the opportunity. I thought it was a great way of getting to know the school better and also expressing desire to go there. If you decide to sign up, I'd strongly recommend you got your 30-second pitch and some good questions ready. If you don't have any, don't sign up. Simple as that. Even though the chat is not part of the application process, keep in mind that you're always on the record when speaking to adcoms.

One more thing. If you scroll up this thread, you'll notice quite a few folks freaking out about someone getting random emails from Kellogg. If there's a takeaway for round 2 applicants, it is to relax. It doesn't mean anything.

I didn't send my official scores. I had shot them a mail asking if it is necessary and the adcom team had replied saying that they will need it in case of admission and they can start their review without it.

Can anyone confirm if this is not true?

I have just realized that you need to send official scores to Kellogg, per the application and website but I am nervous these official scores won't be received before the 1/9 deadline. Is this going to be a real problem? Should I speak to Adcom?


I would shoot Adcom an email about it but as far as I know I don't think they're that stringent about it.

I actually forgot in R1 to send official scores as well and did it a week before hand. I believe there was a previous Gmatclub post a few years back about how Kellogg took in official scores after the deadline. Personally, my application updated in 4 days to show that they received my GMAT. However, don't quote me on this - I'd send an email to admissions just in case.

If the adcom replied so and was clear about it why are you doubting the adcom? If I were the adcom I would feel pretty offended that you don't trust me and that I had wasted my time responding to your inquiry.

It was just a panic-stricken response and was more to double check that I have the right information. But I get your point.

Haven't heard anything since Round 2 Submission, either Interview or Denial.

Has anyone else just heard crickets since submission?

Did receive a confirmation for submission of application (to the earlier conversations on here)

Thanks,

Nothing so far. Livewire was showing that a couple of people have received invites but I don't think they are done with the first batch yet.

Have any Round 2 applicants, who requested off-campus interviews, received an interview invitation? Hoping to figure out a timeline. Thanks in advance!

You're US-based, right? I'm US-based as well, and I've been matched with an off-campus interviewer. I wonder if they space the invitations out so that alumni aren't having to perform lots of back-to-back interviews?

Yep, I'm based in NY right now. I'm not sure if it's just by invitation-only or if there is just a delay in finding a local off-campus interviewer. Figured I'd check here before contacting Kellogg directly. I also remember a note saying it could be anywhere for 4-6 weeks after the application deadline, so I don't want to come across as impatient, although I am anxious about not hearing anything.

I bet it's a spacing thing. They give us a pretty tight turnaround time to complete the interview (2 weeks), and I bet it's so that alumni can space interviews out instead of having lots back to back. From everything I've heard, Kellogg interviews all domestic applicants, so you don't have to worry about not receiving an invitation.

To quote an Adcom, applying in third round is "discouraged". The logical reason is that you will have a very tight margin between the decision date and the school landing date (when you step into the incoming class). You will be squeezed for time to get everything in place including your F1 Visa. Moreover, R3 is highly competitive as the class is nearly filled already. All that said, if you feel that you are extremely competitive and can force your way into the class by putting up a great application, there's nobody stopping you. But, my personal opinion would be to sit out this year and apply early next year in R1. All the Best! :)
