Hi nifoui
thanks maybe I'll email them. The info came out on May 2dn, and since I'im a round 1 admit, I must send the form before May 9th.

As for KWEST, once you log on on the admitted student portal,(if the site is not down :evil: ) you have a link to the specific KWEST page.
There you'll have the info about the destination, the schedule, what to bring in your bags (sun glasses, etc...) and the price.

PS: are you international? why didn't you go to DAK?


cool thanks! I'll check it out when the portal's up again

I'm based in London and couldn't quite afford to take days at that time for DAK, plus felt like saving money...

KWEST Trips (sign up tomorrow!)

The site's been up and down for me as well, but I was able to download the application verification form. I would definitely email Kellogg to get that PDF before the due date.

Wow, they put up a nice guide on registration. Good luck with your first (of many) Kellogg first come, first served signup rushes!

For all those who have issues connecting to the admitted student site: seems that it may be a browser issue. I was trying to connect with Chrome and it didn't work, but works with Safari. So try different browser, it might work!

Today is THE day !

What is your top choice guys?? I'll be putting BRAZILLLLLLLL on top!

Autralia seems good, but I'm international, will arrive in the US by August 15 (first jet lag) then if I go to Autralia on the 20, back on 27 (second jet lag).... I don't want to be tired during CIM week.
I'll try to choose latin am. or caribbean countries.

1) Steve Rogers
2) Kotler
3) ....

Once you have access to the Serial (student intranet), which you may already be able to access with your netid and password, you can look up the TCEs (professor and course evals) to see which professors are highest ranked and the course bidding results to see which professors students are willing to dump a lot of points for (both available under Course Information). From my experience and from talking to other students, the top professors, by dept, are: Rogers (Fin), Rebelo (Fin), Hennessy (Mktg), Calkins (Mktg), Grayson (Mktg), Besanko (Mgmt), Kraemer (Mgmt), Allon (Ops), Sawhney (Tech), McKeon (DECS), Galinsky (MORS), Medvec (MORS). Also, Financial Decisions (Fin-D), is widely considered a "must-take" course regardless of which professor is teaching. Kotler typically doesn't teach MBA courses, although he usually gives 1-2 talks a year that are open to all students.

Beyond the professors I've mentioned there are a lot of very good professors that are great teachers and who you will learn a lot from. The ones I've listed are the best of the best - that consistently get TCEs over 9.5 (out of 10) or consistently get nominated for awards (Faculty Impact, Professor of the Year, etc.). My suggestion to you is to think first about what courses you want to take while you're at Kellogg, then think secondarily about professors (ie delay taking a course until next quarter if a much better professor will be teaching it). In part, you want to make sure that you don't miss out on a good course just because it doesn't have a rockstar professor, but also the way course bidding works you won't be able to afford taking all rockstars (some professors I've listed *cough* Rogers *cough* Medvec *cough* can use up 1/2 your annual point allotment just for 1 class).

For all Kellogg current students and alumni, I have two random questions that I thought of recently:

- What type of clothes do most students wear to class? When I was doing research for bschools, I read somewhere that one school requires students to dress up business casual. Never heard that about Kellogg, but was wondering what your experience overall was

- Is there a cafeteria or something similar that all business school students eat at? Or do people just eat at all the local restaurants for lunch/dinner?

Thanks!

Most students dress casually, although students will dress business casual if they are attending company presentations during the day.

There are a couple quick food options inside Jacobs for people that are stuck at school. Local restaurants are a couple blocks away. Some students also go to the Norris Center (the undergraduate student union), which is nearby.

The wise 2nd years also know that a few of the places in Evanston will deliver food to Jacobs, so if you can't leave Jacobs you can get outside food brought to you. The food options in Jacobs can get tiresome and while I like going to hang out with the undergrads in Norris as much as the next guy, in January and February it's not worth walking across campus for.

Hi Jerz
I have a some questions regarding academics at Kellogg.

It is said that we need a minimun of 24.5 courses for graduation. The core courses accounting for nine.
1) Technically, is it possible to have 40 or 50 courses credits? (there are a lot of courses I'm interested in, I now I won't have time but...)

2) Assuming that the bidding system allows you to have all the course you want, what's the max number of course one can take per quarter?

3) it seems to me that some courses can be taken by 1st AND 2nd year students! Is it common that some 1st year and 2nd students take the same course? how are work groups organized in such case?

thanks

It's not possible to take more than 5 classes a quarter, so the most you would be able to graduate with is 30. The tuition we pay covers 3-5 classes per quarter. Less than three you're no longer considered a full-time student (which is bad from a financial aid standpoint), more than five and you're paying extra for each extra course (at about $5000 per course). To be honest, even trying to get 30 classes is probably not a good idea anyway. The workload for 5 classes is significant and generally isn't a good idea during recruiting or other times when you'll have a lot going on outside the classroom. In addition, the more you're focused on academics, the more likely you'll miss out on the outside the classroom activities (clubs, speakers, friends, etc.) that make the MBA so fulfilling. Purely from a practical standpoint, the bidding system will not allow you to register for more than 5 classes per quarter and, even if it did, since you only get a fixed amount of bid points each year you probably wouldn't be able to afford more than 5 each quarter anyway. Especially if those extra classes you want are popular electives. Bschool, like life, is about tradeoffs. You won't be able to take all the classes you want to take while you're at Kellogg. Pick the ones that are most important to you, and try to waive as many core classes as possible to maximize the electives you can take. Most of the people I know ended up graduating with between 24.5-26 credits.

Except for the core classes (which need to be complete by the end of first year), all classes are open to both first and second years. Some classes have a 2nd year preference which, while I don't know the mechanics of how it works, makes it easier for 2nd years to get into the class if demand>available seats. But even with that it's pretty common in elective classes to have a mix. In terms of group work, it depends on the class. Most elective classes let you form your own groups while some classes have groups assigned by the professor. When students can form their own groups, they tend to form groups with people from their own class - just because they're probably closer with them already and/or are more familiar with how they work in groups. Assigned groups are usually mixed between 1st/2nd years. It's really not a big deal - the 1st and 2nd year classes aren't really segregated and because of clubs and things like KWEST and CIM a lot of 2nd years are already friends with 1st years and vice versa. In a group nobody cares if you're a 1st year or 2nd year as long as you're contributing to the group.

Does anyone know if the exact CIM / pre-term timeline is posted somewhere or can any current students give an idea of what the days during pre-term are like?

To add a very specific question to the mix, part of the motivation here is I have a friend coming to town on the last day of CIM (Sunday?) and staying for a few days through labor day. After CIM week, is it feasible that I'd have 1/2 day blocks to show my friend around town or are things still ridiculously busy from dawn til dusk during MORS?

After CIM week, you still have MORS for 3 hrs per day. I know they are revamping the schedule a bit next year, but I believe you will still have MORS in one half of each day, and some sort of training session (safety, career, tech, etc) in the other half. So I'd guess you will be busy until 4 or 5 each day in week 2.
