Thought I should post my interview experience. I'm an international applicant based out of the US and I submitted my application a couple of weeks before the deadline. My interview was taken by an alum last week. Interview was very conversational and she asked a lot of follow-up questions. Some of the questions asked were why mba, why kellogg, what do i currently do outside of work, leadership experience, conflict resolution, what courses/clubs i would be interested in after coming to kellogg etc. She kept writing a lot of notes as i answered all her questions. It is good to prepare for all probable questions in advance as a lot of them would be asked during the interview.

Thanks for sharing your experience.... Did you not get any questions such as guesstimate or any other analytical (scenario based) or quant type questions? Such as the number of tennis balls needed to fill an Airbus 380 etc...

Nah nothing like that. It was a pretty freewheeling interview...

Hey, my video essay was waived due to the technical problems. I got an email from Kellogg that I can submit a new video essay if I want to. Just wondering if anyone else also got such a notification from Kellogg? Thanks.

Yup! Got the same notification. I am planning to retry and submit it by tomorrow.

Have you solved your technical problems? Mine still persists... I just don't know how to solve it. Might just pass the video essay... Hopefully this won't impact my application as Kellogg indicated...

I hope that you've read the posts from other GC members on previous pages.... Lots of people (including me) have shared a lot of their experiences from R1 and R2.... That may prove helpful...

I applied R2 and see that several people have already been invited and interviewed. Fair to assume that all of these invites went out at once and I will not be considered?

Some confusion on my end - do all applicants have an evaluative interview or only those invited to interview? I see a January 22nd schedule date for NW on-campus interviews. I want to make sure I am understanding the kellogg process correctly. Can anyone shed some light on the subject?

From what I understand, they will try to interview all applicants. Only that submitting apps after the "recommended" deadline may cause the interview to be scheduled late. They will only waive off campus interviews for candidates for whom they can't find interviewers (read alumni) within the interview window. I'd wait a while and then try contacting the AO. BTW, I submitted my R2 app on the 7th of Jan. But haven't heard from them either.

Anyone else with better info/ views?

Hey,

On site, it says that a skype interview will be done, if required, for those who have submitted the app after recommended deadline.
I have heard that interview is waived for some. But, no sure how it progressed.

For those who were also confused, it's understandable. The kellogg process is a little more unique than most schools. For scheduling an on-campus interview, you need to call 847-491-3308 by January 22nd to schedule an interview.

Regards,

Check out http://www.kellogg.northwestern.edu/pro ... -2013.aspx
Excerpt below:

The Round 2 deadline for all applications has been extended from Jan. 7 to Jan. 9, 2014, at 5 p.m. CT; both on-campus and off-campus interview requests will be accepted until this date. For those requesting an off-campus interview, we recommend an earlier submission (December 3) to allow the greatest lead time for the interview matching process. Applications received after this date will continue to be matched but may see further restricted interview availability. All applications will be reviewed equally, whether submitted on December 3 through our deadline of January 9. An applicant will not be at a disadvantage in the process if the application is submitted on the deadline but we do encourage those who are ready early to submit the application early

For off-campus interviews we should wait at least 4 weeks before panicking... Or maybe someone who called the AO can shed some light on this....

As for the waived interviews, I've heard that this only happens if they are unable to match the candidate with any available dates with alumni... I guess this is why they ask people to apply early, to allow more time for alumni to make themselves available to conduct interviews... In my opinion/understanding, a waived interview does not reflect negatively on the applicant BUT does deny him/her of valuable face time with someone who can have an impact on their application...

Yep... if you selected on-campus interview in your application, then you will definitely need to call to schedule the interview. Only for off-campus interviews, you need to be patient and allow them to mail you

If you are in an area where the demand for off-campus interviews is high (such as India or China) compared to the # of interviewers available, they won't be able to match you to an interviewer, thus your interview is waived. Kellogg tries to interview all applicants before they review the application, and they do so before evaluating your profile extensively. However, if they can't match you to someone, then they review your app to decide whether to offer you a Skype interview or not. If your interview is waived and you don't get invited for a Skype interview, I think chances are they are not interested in you.
