You can waive out of accounting with an undergrad level accounting class. The accounting core class is not really a grad-level accounting class, more an opportunity for MBA students without prior accounting coursework to gain a foundational understanding of accounting concepts and financial reporting.

There is a decent amount of recruiting activities in the fall quarter, but it's almost exclusively networking events, coffee chats, company presentations, shadow days, etc. How many of these there are depends on what you're recruiting for. If you're banking, consulting or another network-intensive industry, you will be very busy. For the less network-intensive industries, you can probably expect a couple of events per week once recruiting starts in October. There will also be resume reviews run by the CMC and professional clubs, and maybe some interview prep groups start forming (although that's more in the winter quarter).

If I remember, the first internship applications weren't due until the week after fall quarter ended (aka ski trip week), with a bunch more due over winter break. Interviews started I think either the first or second week we were back for the winter quarter.

Sounds good, I'll be there by then. I got my first choice for KWEST too. Spending so much time in front of the computer has given me the quick trigger necessary for successful KWEST signup ;)

Anyone trying to waive DECS-433? Is it worth taking?

I thought it was a intro stats course, but after reading the syllabus, I'm not sure if my Applied Stats course applies.

Has anyone researched on alternatives for the Kellogg Laptop program? I am seeing some great options out there (HP for $499), with the same configuration, but have never used a HP before. Any other suggestions for laptops that are reliable and beat the KLP's price?
thanks

There's a bit of info posted in the Laptop thread. Boogs got an alternative laptop if I recall. I'm thinking of just sticking with KLP unless I can find a much better deal for equivalent performance.

I actually got a similar Lenovo laptop, but not through KIS. KLP is probably a good choice if you feel like you need the service that is included.

Any updates as to when people will be arriving in Evanston? I will be there 8/15.

Re: Core Course Selection

On the website, when I select my core course and hit "send" it looks like the web page basically just refreshes and that's it. No confirmation message. And the boxes are still there such that I could choose a different course and hit "send". Is this what it's supposed to be? Did other people have the same experience?

Is the core course selection live? I haven't seen any place to sign up for course selection on the welcome page.

I navigate to the core course selection via the to-do list item.

Maybe I'm just premature.

I seem to recall something similar last year where there was little or no confirmation that you'd successfully submitted your preference. You may want to try again after the day it's supposed to go live just to be sure, but I'm pretty sure that even when you successfully select you don't get a confirmation.

Just a question on course selection/waivers - after reading the notes listed on different departments, it seems like the only way you can get a full waiver is if you take a test in addition to providing a transcript and syllabus - is that accurate?

"Anyone trying to waive DECS-433? Is it worth taking?"


I was thinking about it, but the sample exam they have online looks quite hard! The only problem is that if you don't waive DECS 433, you have to take Finance I (which I'm trying to waive).

This is not the impression I get from the website.

An exam is required if you your waiver application is deemed "no waiver" or "partial waiver". If your waiver application is deemed "full waiver" then you do not need to take an exam.

What notes listed on different departments made you think that a full waiver is difficult or rare? I might be missing something.

Well I found this for microecon:

A full waiver from MECN 430 is only granted by passing the waiver exam that is given in the fall quarter. A full waiver means that your managerial economics requirement is satisfied without need for further course work in this area.

So I finally finished the math bootcamp and took the test. I guess I can skip the Math Refresher. I just looked at the test for turbo DECS, and while I think I learned how to do most of this stuff 7 years ago, I don't think I want to have to relearn everything on my own just to be ready for class. Also, I only took one class with an A instead of the 2 classes with B or greater. That requirement seems a bit unclear. The flow chart says 2 classes required, but http://www.kellogg.northwestern.edu/med ... erinfo.htm says 1 class with A is good enough.

I don't think you have to take Fin 1 if you don't waive DECS. I didn't waive DECS and took Marketing in the fall last year.

Also, waiver requirements vary by department. Some departments require you to take the exam to get a full waiver, other departments (like accounting) let you waive based on prior coursework or having a CPA license.
