"The interviewer was a member of the admissions committee who was incredibly kind. With no small talk, she immediately explained the process. The interview was quite friendly but in a way like talking to a professor. She broke up the questions into many pieces to get quick responses. 1) Go over your college history and why you chose your major 2) Tell me about why you went to X industry right after college 3) Tell me about how you progressed at Y company in terms of your responsibilities and roles 4) Why did you quit Y company? 5) Tell me about your own startup 6) How did you find these clients? 7) What skills did your career experience help you gain? 8) Tell me about the most diverse team you worked with 9) How did you collaborate with these diverse people? 10) How would the people you work with describe you? 11) Could you compare how you were like as a leader in college and how you are as a leader now? 12) What’s changed? 13) What are your goals and why Kellogg? 14) (Because I spoke about Z club) any other clubs you are interested in? 15) Do you have a backup plan if your current plan doesn’t pan out, a plan B? 16) Do you have anything to add? There were a few more follow-up questions I cannot recall unfortunately."

"An alumnus interviewed me, and it lasted 45 minutes with an additional 15 minutes of questions for the interviewer and general "back and forth." The overall environment was very conversational, and I was able to connect with the alumni, sharing a similar background and work experience. 1) Walk me through the various decision points throughout your career. The interviewer was specific about not walking through the resume but providing context at each role change. 2) What are your near- and long-term career goals? 3) Why Kellogg? 4) Tell me about your greatest accomplishment. 5) Tell me about a time you received constructive feedback. 6) Tell me about a time one of your direct reports was trusted to accomplish something without your direct oversight. 7) How have you progressed at each role compared to your peers? 8) What unique thing would you bring to the class? 9) What would your peers say about you if asked? 10) Tell me about your leadership style. 11) Tell me about a time you worked with a difficult person."

"The interviewer (a Kellogg 2Y alum from my home country) was nice and straightforward, asking questions related to points on my resume and then the typical Why MBA now/why Kellogg (which was closer to the end of the interview, surprisingly). She seemed genuinely curious about my career transitions, my work and community service, and my values as a collaborative team player. The interview lasted about an hour, with the last 10-15 mins for me to ask her some questions about her exp at Kellogg. Here is the list of questions: Walk me through your resume Were current community service part of your work at your current startup? More clarification on what current community service is, and it is not related to your current startup in terms of recipients Asking about the transition from the first corporation to current startup - why and was it a seamless transition? Tell me about a time that you work in a team with people from different backgrounds A follow-up question on the teamwork question - did my team talk directly with the customers? If your co-workers have to describe you in 3 words, what would be these words? Tell me about a time when you work on feedback from other members Tell me about a time when you have to bring people from different viewpoints together A follow-up on the question above about the roles of the people in the story What is your biggest contribution/impact in your current professional role? A follow-up on the question above about how long the current product in the current startup is on the market Why MBA now? Why Kellogg? For your career goal, why don’t you continue to work in your current startup and then lateral before building out your own company instead of going to business school? What will be the biggest challenges as you attend Kellogg?"

"Interviewed with an adcom member who seemed kinda bored and unimpressed throughout. Someone had already told me that some of the Kellogg interviewers are poker-faced serious note-takers so I tried to not let that affect my confidence. She often asked me to repeat myself which made me a little worried cause I thought either she's not paying attention to what I am saying or I am not speaking with clarity. It could also either just be that she wanted to get the details correct for her notes. 1. Walk me through your resume 2. How many people do you manage in your current role? 3. What do you love about your current role? 4. Example about working in a diverse team. 5. Biggest career achievement. 6. ST and LT goals - what would you do right after MBA. 7. Why Kellogg 8. Anything else? 9. Any questions for me?"

"I was interviewed by a member of the admissions committee. It was very conversational and mostly around my experience and some behavioural questions. We started with talking about my journey since I joined undergrad. What were the highlights. Moved to Jobs (why this job, role, growth in responsibilities, project examples, teams you worked with etc) and overall career trajectory. Followed by behavioural questions: How would your colleagues describe you? How has your Leadership evolved? Difference because of diversity in a team? How? What? How would you uniquely contribute to Kellogg community? Hope this helps. Goodluck"

"Interviewed by an alum. The interview was split in 2 parts, 30 mins for the actual interview and 15 mins for Q&A. The interviewer started with a personal introduction and gave an overview of what the interview would be like. 1. Tell me about yourself/experiences you have had so far 2. What is one achievement that you are proud of and why. 3. What has been the biggest challenge you have faced so far and how did you deal with it. 4. How did you convince your team to take up a new project and how did you deal with the challenges. (very specific question to something I had mentioned earlier) 5. How would your team members describe you. 6. Why MBA, why now. 7. Why Kellogg. 8. How will you contribute to the class at Kellogg, what differentiates you. 9. What is one area you seek to improve. I had multiple follow-up questions on each individual question. Overall it was very conversational and the interviewer paid attention to every word I said so was asking very specific questions based on my profile."
