Interviews are not part of the general application process. Due to the number of applications Kellogg receives each year, it is not feasible for faculty to interview every applicant. Instead, each program initiates phone, Skype, or campus interviews for only those candidates who are being strongly considered for admission or for candidates for whom additional information is needed. An applicant cannot request an interview.
The applicant’s academic record is closely examined. Transcripts, test scores, letters of recommendation, resume, the statement of purpose and writing sample (optional) will be reviewed by the admissions committee to determine the applicant’s fit within the doctoral program and his or her potential for scholarly research. Each application will also be evaluated against the applications the Kellogg School received as a whole. All decisions are finalized in early March for admission in the coming fall.
