Kellogg is conducting its application review process over three rounds of deadlines this year. Whereas many MBA programs conduct interviews by invitation only, Northwestern asks all prospective students to schedule an interview with a member of the admissions committee. Applicants provide their time zones in the application and can expect to receive interview scheduling instructions within six weeks of the application deadline.
Applicants should note that all materials must be submitted by 5:00 PM Central Time on the date of each deadline.
|Round||Application Deadline||Admissions Decision|
|Round 1||September 14, 2022||December 14, 2022|
|Round 2||January 10, 2023||March 28, 2023|
|Round 3||April 5, 2023||May 10, 2023|
A complete application must include transcripts from all colleges and universities attended, a resume, GMAT or GRE scores, responses to essay questions, letters of recommendation, and video essays. The video essay is accessible once the application and fee have been submitted. The $250 application fee must be submitted with the application via credit card. Fee waivers may be granted through a formal request for applicants who are active duty US military or US military veterans who have been on active duty within three years of applying, and candidates employed by Teach For America or the Peace Corps within the last three years.
Due to COVID-19, admissions interviews are currently all virtual.
All applicants must indicate their time zone in their application. Then, the adcom will reach out via email with scheduling instructions within six weeks of the application deadline.
Interview slots are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. Interviews typically last 30-45 minutes and are conducted Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and select Saturdays.
Waivers may be issued due to high demand and limited availability of interviewers. If the interview is waived, the admissions committee may request a phone or Skype interview. The applicant may not request a phone or Skype interview.
All interview requests are final and may not be changed after submission. Applicants who are unable to attend their interview must contact the office of admissions to cancel the request.
