Is there some degree of profile evaluation before Kellogg distributes off-campus invites?

I recieved an off-campus invite for the DFW area, I'm just hoping my chances of admittance have improved since the day I submitted my round 2 app.

Knowing someone’s “profile” is not helpful especially for Kellogg.

Why so? I was just looking to understand what the school really looks for (for any future application)

Two reasons:
First, Kellogg makes every effort to interview as many applicants as possible. They literally won’t even read the rest of your application until the interview is completed or you receive a waiver. So unlike other schools, getting an interview isn’t really reflective of your chances of being admitted.

Second, the profiles posted on here lack a lot of the context which makes a big difference in the admissions decision.

I got enough context about Anik. but for the sake of this thread, let's end it here.

Hello ! For off-campus interviews they provide an e-mail and a phone number of the Alumnus. Do you guys usually e-mail the person only or text him/her also to schedule ?

Either is fine. But, I would suggest to reach out through email first. If the Alum doesn't respond in a couple of days, you can reach out via phone.

Same here. Called them last Friday and they said - we are still in the process and yet to reach out to some candidates... Wednesday marks the end of 6 weeks. Fingers crossed

Question, perhaps an odd one:
Had my interview yesterday, think it went reasonably well. However, when we reached the subject of my volunteer experience...I have a hard time talking about it without getting emotional. I work with a children's bereavement camp that I attended after my father died over 10 years ago; I've been volunteering with them since I was 17, and its something that is extremely close to my heart because of the children I've met and the stories I've come into contact with there. This is the second interview that I have actually teared up/gotten pretty emotional while talking about my involvement with this organization, though I believe I managed to answer the question thoroughly/articulately despite crying (still makes me cringe). This happened during my McCombs interview as well, and I was admitted there with a full ride, so clearly they appreciated the "extra sincerity" I guess.

My question is, do you think this hurts my chances at Kellogg at all, or do you think they will see it as a sign of my genuine passion for and commitment to the organization?

Thanks...every time I think about it, I die a little inside :|

I'm certainly not an expert, but as long as you weren't straight-up sobbing / unable to carry on, I can't imagine this would count against you. Especially at Kellogg where they seem a little more "human" than some other Ad Comms. I would guess this felt like a bigger deal to you than it did to the interviewer. Any reasonably empathetic person would understand why it's an emotional subject for you. And it does show sincere dedication to your cause. Did your interviewer react in the moment in any way?

Thanks, you're probably right that my interviewer likely wasn't as phased by it as I'm thinking she was. She was very sweet about it, when I apologized for getting emotional, she said something like "well it makes sense, concerning the subject"...I'm trying to stop over-analyzing it, just hoping they're not thinking "this girl is unstable" hahaha
