I hope this does not sound selfish and does not rub anyone in the wrong way. I have 710 gmat and a foreigner with a U.S. passport. My hope is if some of the accepted international students decide to defer to avoid virtual classes, they might want to "diversify" their class and give me a chance. Honestly, my stats are below their average so I am hoping for a miracle. But realistically, I think they have already passed on my app since I have not been invited an interview after requesting an "off-campus" in my app that I submitted 4/28.

Lmao I know who you are 😂

don't lose your cool guys...hope this will clear all your doubts.

To everyone applying from India. Let me detail it as I am sure it will calm some nerves:

1. Kellogg, by design, interviews each applicant. However, in areas of high demand of interviews such as India, it is not possible for them to match their alumni to each applicant as each alumni can do only as many interviews
2. Once both Part 1 and Part 2 are submitted, one of the following three scenarios will occur:

i. You will be invited to interview on a day. This is essentially an interview day - many alumni will gather at a hotel and many applicants will be interviewed. No clear formula on how the invitees are decided, but I think it depends on who submtited Part 1 earlier as from Kellogg's vantage point everyone has to be interviewed and hence no one is at a higher or lower priority at that point. Once the interview has been completed, the adcom will review your essays and recommendations and you then sit tight until the decision date to hear back from them.

ii. You will get an interview waiver. The Kellogg team does NOT read an applicant's file until their interview is complete. Hence, to avoid delays, they start reading the application first for those in India who weren't sent invited in the first go. The waiver does NOT affect your application negatively - it just means that they are waiving your interview in order to begin reviewing your application

iii. If they like your application, you will receive an invitation to interview. This will be a one to one with an alumnus here, or a Skype with the adcom in Chicago

iv. It may also happen that you don't get this invite after the waiver, in which case it is safe to assume you have been dinged

3. Hence, unlike other countries, in India Kellogg does NOT interview everyone. Also, most people receive a waiver which can then convert/not convert into an interview invite at a later stage.
4. You will NOT be admitted to the program without an interview. Hence, if after the waiver you do not receive an invite, it means you have been dinged.
5. Dates: Please read last year's thread. If I recall correctly, people received the first invites 2 weeks after the Part 2 deadline. People who first received a waiver and then an invite (such as me) kept hearing throughout November. I got my invite around Mid Nov.
6. Hence, if by end Nov you haven't heard from them after a waiver, safe to move on to alternate plans
7. Most people in India will get a waiver - it will test your nerves (tested mine) but it is actually a blessing in disguise. If you receive an invite after a waiver, that means the adcom liked your application and wants to know more - that is a positive sign any day of the year

Hope this answers your queries. Indian applicants should NOT compare their interview timeline to foreign applicants.

Agree to some points...but I don't think adcom doesn't review applications before an interview..or waiver..I had people from adcom looked at my LinkedIn profile few days back..that means they have started looking at my application..
Considering the large alumni base and that most interviews are happening through skype during this period..I dont think conducting interviews is a challenge for kellogg..I think waivers signal some negativity..

You might also want to know if you requested an alumni interview, the below video states it takes 4-6 weeks to schedule one (FF to 8:51).

You're neglecting that the video is dated May 7, 2020 by the Adcom so they're already accounting for COVID19 and the application influx. I'm sure there's a matching algorithm for certain students who meet certain criteria to get a Skype interview sooner. However, not everyone will fit that criterion. If you're not in that group you need to deal with it and wait it out.

No. I don't think you are correct. The video essays are due within 48hrs of application submission. I have found the following on their website.

Quote:
Q: How much time will I have to complete the video essays?
A: After submitting your application you will be given access to the video essay component and will have 48 hours after the application is due to complete the video essay. We encourage applicants to complete their video essay shortly after submitting the application while information is still fresh in your mind and so you don 't forget!Also, please try not to wait for the last possible moment to record your video essay. It will feel more stressful if you are doing it at the last minute and in a rush. Block out 20-25 minutes a few days after you submit your application and complete it.


Hi,

Thanks for sending this! I'm going to play devil's advocate (not to create an issue for the sake of it, but just to try and make sure we are getting the right information).

"will have 48 hours after the application is due to complete the video essay" I read as 48 hours after the application deadline. It doesn't directly mention 48 hours after you submit - it's 48 hours after it is due. Also - for what this is worth - it doesn't seem to make much sense for Kellogg to impose a 48 hour after submission deadline, as applicants would then simply submit their applications later (i.e., closer to the round deadline). to give them more time.

Only way to test this might be to submit the application then see what happens? Happy to be the tester but wanted to see if anyone had experience yet. I imagine Kellogg would send an email stating that your video essays are due by XX date.



FYI,

This is the message from the confirmation email following an application:

Complete your video essay questions by logging into your applicant status page and submitting your application fee. It may take up to 20 minutes after you have paid the application fee for the video essay link to appear on your status page. Video Essays are due within 48 hours of the application deadline for each round.

I saw this on clear admit:
See this message by Kellogg admissions: "Thank you for your email and your patience. There is no set timeline for when decisions on Round 3 extended decisions will be released, as it is a rolling submissions period. We are reviewing applications as we are able and as seats become available. You’ll be notified once a decision has been made."

If this is the case, it sucks. Not that we are competing for an open seat, but the seat also has to open up. If i knew this was the case, I would not have applied.

I think you can still withdraw your application. Not too late

Honestly once you apply, you might as well just stick it out and wait for a decision- it’s not like you’re going to get a refund for your app fee at this point.

If this process has taught me anything - it is that none of us have any true insight into what is going on. Try not to look into things, especially unverified comments on the internet or someone's interpretation of an automated email response. Keep your head up and fingers crossed

Nothing. So stop complaining. You already applied so no need to cry over spilt milk. We move. You made an executive decision to apply so stick with it. From the start you knew this was a gamble....I am assuming we all did.
I’d advise you to cast your net wider cos if even international students defer are those particular international students from your country or continent of origin? What if they’re from a different continent altogether?
I don’t mean to get you worked up but stop complaining and wait it out.
There’s always next year. Shalom

Let’s dial it back a little. Part of what drew me to Kellogg was it’s congenial environment. This forum is similarly supposed to be a safe space where we all share with and learn from one another.

In particular, I really appreciate the interview questions and tips that many of you posted. Please keep them coming.

I completed my application on May 4th with all recommendation submitted by May 18th. I was told by the admission office that not all candidates will be interviewed at this time due to the shortage of interviewers. Still waiting...

Hi. I’m a rolling round 3 candidate and have received an interview match. Am I to take this as a good sign or a neutral one? It sounds like not everyone is getting an interview, so perhaps this is a positive sign?

Thoughts?

Congrats on the interview.
