I just received my Interview Assignment! Both exciting and scary at the same time. I thought I would have a lot more time to prepare (they said 4 - 6 weeks for offsite interviews! ha!) and I'm still in the process of completing a few other applications.

My email said I will need to complete the interview within 14 days of today. Does anyone know how stringent this deadline is? I am traveling for work the next two weeks and would love to be able to extend this deadline by a week or so.

Thanks

Great news! How did they reach out to you about the interview? When did you send in your application?

I received my interview mail too.

Do the interviewers have access to our essays?

Congratulations, that's so exciting!! Where did they give the 4-6 week estimate, did you receive some sort of email? Anxiously awaiting word, and wondering how long after the deadline I should start worrying if I haven't heard!

Hi R1 submitters:

Did you actually receive any kind of confirmation that everything is well and that your R1 application is final and will now be checked?


Wondering the same thing- I didn't receive any confirmation that my application was complete. In the portal it shows that all my materials are in, I just didn't receive a confirmation on or around the app deadline. Did those that have received their interview invite receive any form of confirmation?

Third-ed. I'm in the same boat and wondering how bad of a look it is to reach out to admissions to check.

I received an email after submitting my application (before the video essays). That quote about the off-campus interviews is in that email.

I think you should be fine, especially if your portal has all the checkmarks. It does say within 4 - 6 weeks which is a substantial amount of time. I live in a fairly large city in the US so it may just have been that alumnis were available and easy to match with

Ah, gotcha. Thanks! I'm in NYC, so my sense of unease at the wait isn't totally abated, but appreciate the info. :)

Nope didn't receive any confirmation as such. Just received an automated 'thank you for submitting' mail immediately after clicking on submit.

The next communication was the interview assignment.

Hi Guys, current student here...was in your shoe recently so to clarify some questions that were asked:

Your interviewer does not see any part of your application except for your resume. Interviews are blind.

Don’t stress if you don’t have an interview assignment yet. Assignments go out all the way up to the 6 week mark for applicants that aren’t waived which will be most people, especially those located in the US.

What areas are usually probed during the interviews? Other than the expected 'Why MBA', 'Why Kellogg' stuff?

For my interview which I had recently on campus they focused on the following:

- Initial explanation of my positions. Since I am a nonstandard applicant they wanted details and explanation of selectivity for each position.

- Why an MBA

- Short and long term goals

- How co-workers describe you, good and bad

- Extra cirriculars

They then switched to ask more leadership questions

- How leadership style has changed throughout career

- Explain a time where you were resilent as a leader

- Anything else we should know.

Be prepared for questions on your leadership and have some solid examples of each. Should be easy since you have your whole application to pull from so reinforcing those examples probably would help as it strengthens them with a fresh perspective. The interviewer will not be reviewing your application before or after so keep that in mind as you prepare. Of course who is interviewing you matters too. As long as you practice the questions available from the debriefs from various sites and the ones above you should do great. Best of luck to everyone going for the interview!

Hey guys, Chicago resident here waiting on an invite for an off-campus interview. Given that they've already started scheduling many on and off campus interviews, when do we think is the latest that will come through?

I got mine the day after waiver notifications went out. (I didn’t get a waiver notification so I was still in the “normal” process). So basically it could be awhile.

FuturePM91 is there somewhere on Kellogg's site where they mention that the interview almost everyone? I've seen many applicants saying, including my friends, that they interview everyone but can't actually confirm it.

Had my alumni interview today.

My background: Indian working in Kuala Lumpur, applying for the 1-year MBA

Interviewer was a very senior alum from 2006 batch (1-yr MBA). He is former country head of BCG Malaysia and currently EVP at a government agency.

Questions
1) Walk me through your resume
2) Explain a bit more about your current role. Type of projects, team size, your responsibilities, etc.
3) Explain rationale of career path and job choices
4) What do you like the most and hate the most about your current job?
5) Your most significant achievement
6) Short-term and long-term goals
7) Why MBA? Why Kellogg?
8) Two criticisms you have received at work and how did you work on them?
9) Example of when you led a diverse team. What did you learn?
10) Describe a situation when someone from your team wasn't giving his best. What did you do to fix it?
11) What do you think is the weakest part of your application?
12) What is unique about you as a candidate?
13) Anything you would like to discuss which was not touched?
14) Any questions about Kellogg?

Was a pretty casual interview. Lasted half an hour. Interviewer never cut my answers or cross-questioned. He asked the questions and listened to my answers, taking notes at times. Now the wait begins.

Cheers and good luck!

Anyone else who will be interviewing off campus still not get scheduled yet? Waiting a full 4-6 weeks just doesn't feel like it will leave a lot of time before decisions.
