The following Northwestern / Kellogg interview questions and report were submitted to Clear Admit by a Round 1 applicant. Good luck to them!
My interview was a little odd. A second year student came to get me in the waiting area and told me she would be my interviewer but and adcom member would be shadowing our conversation. That made it a little difficult because I felt like I needed to address both of them and make eye contact with each throughout the conversation. This was the only interview I had where I was asked for a copy of my resume when I checked in, so definitely bring an extra copy or 2 in case.
The interview was actually just under 30 minutes which made me feel like it didn’t go as well as I hoped.
- Walk me through your resume
- Tell me about a time at work you had a conflict at work/needed to persuade someone of your viewpoint
- Short/long term career goals, how does Kellogg fit, etc.
There were many times where I felt the student asked me 2 or 3 different questions at the same time so I found myself getting flustered trying to remember the second or third question she asked after I answered her first. I hope that it was more if a function of how the question was asked than my ability to answer but only the adcom member can assess that.
Hopefully good news tomorrow but I’m not terribly confident about it.
