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?



I thought you were an R1 applicant


Nope r2 for Kellogg

Mgraynap I love this~~~the name of the game is to establish an emotional connection, and for her to see the depth of your passion is frankly very "on brand" with Kellogg. Please do not give this a moment's thought. It would be different if it was fake or you were doing it for attention. Shedding a few tears because you are touched by this is so very OK.

So the virtual session on Mar 5 about student experience is targeted at R3 applicants?

When you register they'll send you a survey where you're asked if you submitted your application in R1/R2 or you're researching. So I think it's not just for the R3 guys.

Should I assume, if I have not received an invite by now, that it's a ding?

Did you receive a waiver? If you haven’t received anything then you probably will hear from them in the next couple of days. That’s what happened to me. If you’ve received a waiver they do interviews up to the deadline so it’s just a waiting game.

Quick question - I noticed earlier on this thread for Round 1, that people were disputing whether or not the “closed-invitation” invites (such a applicant brunch or cocktail reception with alumni) was a positive or neutral indicator of your status as an applicant.

Now that round 1 has come and passed, did anyone know whether it was true one way or another? I.e. did everyone who was invited to those events for Round 1 get admitted?

I just went to one in NYC and am wondering if it’s a good indicator

I asked around some people during DAK and it was completely a mixed bag. I went to a small dinner and all the people (about half) that I kept in touch with afterwards in my city got accepted. However, I've met some friends at DAK who told me that it was not the same for their cities.

I think it should definitely be seen as a positive sign, but nothing more than that.

Did you interview on campus or with an alumni. I got invited to one but got an interview waiver. In the event that you went to, were there any applicants with an interview waiver?

I received an interview waive 2 weeks ago and started to lose hope now :(
Is it possible that they might still request for interview after round 2 decision (as round 3 deadline is in April)?

pnakata - where are you based?

I was told that Kellogg doesn’t waitlist without interviews - not sure how true this is.

I'm in Southeast Asia, where I know there are lots of Kellogg alumni here.
Just wondering if I will know my status before March 27 or still have a chance until the end of round 3

I wouldn't overthink it too much. Yeah it is definitely one more data point, but realize that they are spending money to bring in alumni (and some are big names at least at our dinner), feed you, and give you a chance in a small group setting to ask questions. That's not typically something I imagine adcom will do for people that they are borderline on.

On the flip side, obviously it is still a second data point. So if you do anything that the alumni don't like or don't think makes you a good fit, they'll probably report it on up.

It's another data point but a positive sign. At the same time, it's not any form of guarantee of your acceptance.
