mazenosman unfortunately, fatmike is (likely) correct. Based on interview waivers from prior years, this looks like boilerplate language, so I wouldn't take it literally. An interview (either on-campus, off-campus, or Skype) is required for admission.

The reason I say likely is that sometimes adcom will send out interview waivers to regions with high demand (China, India, etc.), review applications, and then send Skype invites out, which is what you've referred to. Not saying this won't happen in your case (certainly hope it does!), but this isn't that common outside of these high demand regions and generally interview waivers are not great news.

I received a waiver last year - there were a few of us in the United States - none of whom got Skype invitations and all of whom were ultimately rejected.

I certainly hope that isnt the case for you. If you do get invited, post on the site to give others in similar positions some hope.

Good luck and fingers crossed for you.

Hi All,

I have a question concerning interview scheduling for those who applied in R1. The website says you can schedule an interview after a completed application is submitted. When exactly does Kellogg consider your application complete:

1. Once you submit your materials and pay? That is letters of recommendation may still be outstanding.
2. All materials are in, including letters of recommendation, BUT you have not done the video essay. That is can you schedule an interview in the two day gap between application deadline and video essay deadline?
3. ALL materials are in AND you have also submitted your video essays?

Sharing the verbatim answer to this from the email I received upon submitting my application in R1:

"If you requested an on-campus interview, a link will be made available on your status portal after you have paid your application fee. Please use this link to schedule your interview. Interview slots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. All on-campus interviews must be scheduled within 48 hours of the application deadline for each round. Interviews not scheduled by the appropriate deadline will be waived."

So, looks like it will be scenario 1 from your list. Hope this helps!

Thanks, variant. Can I assume that you submitted your application before your recommenders submitted their letters?

No, actually I submitted the complete application by the deadline, including the two LoRs. But I think the link to schedule interview will be available to you as soon as you make the payment. I don't remember if you can proceed to the payment link without both the recommendations submitted, so you'll have to check that for yourself. Sorry about that! Hope this helps!

Recommendations have nothing to do with payment.

You can pay soon as you complete your part of application - which includes registering your recommenders.

Some schools like Booth give an extra week for your recommenders AFTER the deadline.

I was able to schedule my interview even when both recommenders had not submitted their letters.

Also each school has a different grace period for recommenders. Kellogg told me my recommenders had to submit the letters 2 days after deadline
