Do we know at all where these are happening? Anyone heard of one in Dallas?


Yeah, I got invited to an event at Sixty Vines in Dallas this Saturday (the 9th). Unfortunately I had a trip planned already and will not be able to attend.

Have you not received an interview invite or waiver yet? Invites go out around 4-6 weeks after the deadline. If I were you, I would call Kellogg admissions and check on your status. From what I understand the window for interview invites has passed and if you have not recieved one yet then it's likely your interview was waived.

From what I can gather about the odds of admissions after an interview, it looks to me that Kellogg interviews around 60% of their applicant pool and not the 80% that is speculated. I came to this conclusion based on data from GMATClub, but if the 37% admittance of interviewed applicants is accurate, then Kellogg interviewing 80% of it's applicant pool would not be possible.

20.2% acceptance rate of all Kellogg applicants= 37% acceptance rate of interviewed applicants, if only 54.6% of the Kellogg applicant pool is interviewed.

If 80% of the Kellogg applicant pool were interviewed then the acceptance rate of interviewed applicants would need to be closer to 25.3%.

https://gmatclub.com/forum/chances-of-getting-admitted-after-an-interview-230246.html


Now all the data on GMATclub is self-reported and it's not 100% reflective of the actual Kellogg data, but I think it would be unrealistic for that large of a sampling pool to yield such a drastic difference from the actual data.

I had some down time and I'm trying to convince myself that my interview invite was actually meaningful, the wait really is agonizing. Does anyone else have any speculation to add? I'm gladly wearing my tinfoil hat.

We have confirmed that Kellogg is holding these events as a way to keep applicants connected to the school during what would otherwise be a long period of silence from the program because of how their interviews work. They don't mean anything, even though I personally think they serve to raise people's expectations and hopes. I have had a few clients who didn't get in and then were upset because they felt the program had led them on with these invitations and even students reaching out to them directly during the process. I think they are in a period of testing to see how effective these tactics are.

So in short, don't get overconfident if you are invited to a reception, and definitely try not to worry if you don't.

[quote="gunster"][quote="Mgraynap"][quote="gunster"][quote="Kgsully1"]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.

Does anyone know if Kellogg releases decisions on a rolling basis, or do we all need to wait for the decision deadline regardless of the outcome? The suspense is... suspenseful.

They call the morning of the decision date. The portal updates agent they’re done. Which is usually around 3-4pm Evanston time.

So I am guessing that if you haven’t heard back for a Skype/Phone interview since getting a waiver, it’s as good as a ding right?

Or do folks think that there is still hope?

The Kellogg website lists the decision date for R2 as March 27th, but the GMATClub list has the 26th. Is that maybe just an error or do they call people the day before?

Thank you for bringing this to our notice. It is an error from our side. I have corrected the date to March 27th. Kellogg calls applicants only on the decision day, not a day before.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but it is not looking good. I’ve heard only very rarely of people getting interviews the last week before decisions. There’s a lot that has to be done before decision day so if you haven’t interviewed by now it’s unlikely that you will be interviewed. They may do 1 or 2 but again it’s highly unlikely.

Im always confused by those that speculate that schools are misrepresenting the process. Why would they lie?

Kellogg interviews 80% of applicants. They pride themselves are interviewing as many people as possible because it helps to preserve their unique culture. It actually hurts the school to interview fewer applicants because they are so focused on culture fit that not interviewing a candidate could result in denying admission to someone who is a good culture fit which they care about. A lot. So they always try to interview as many candidates as their resources allow.

Keep in mind that most ppl on Gmatclub are international students. The Gmatclub data is therefore highly skewed and the large gap you’re seeing is not really that unreasonable.

Has anyone tried the email trick yet? I've put a few current students emails into the email testers and those are coming up as negative, so I'm not sure if anyone has a site that actually works...
