Hi guys,

I'm back here after an extended hiatus period. I was busy with my applications. I have submitted my application to Harvard, Stanford, Wharton, Kellogg, Tuck, Sloan and a trans-elite school. I'm applying to Chicago in Rd 2 as a "safety" in case I made any major goofs in my Rd 1 process. I had a couple of interviews already but not from H/W/S.

I'd like to give back to this wonderful community by answering any questions as time permits.

wow, u submitted 7 apps in round 1 only....u must have worked real hard. Good for u !

Not sure if one shud consider Chicago as a "safety" school. They are top seven afterall. I have put in 5 apps in round 1 and will put in
H/S apps in round 2 as it looked like way too many candidates were apping in round 1 to H/S and I didn't have any time to finish those apps either. Planning to spend next 2 mos on these two only. This apping process is draining, isn't it ?

Where all have u interviewed so far ?


Good luck !

Hi Banerjea,

I think I miscommunicated re Chicago. It is not a "safety" as in easy to get into. It is a "safety" as in a school that I'd really consider top notch and therefore would want to wait till December to see if I made any major screwups in my Rd 1 apps so that I can fix it before trying Chicago. My recommendations are totally blind and who knows if they end up bad etc. I'm using a trans-elite school as a real "safety" in Rd 1.

I just finished interviewing with a Kellogg alum and it went of very well. I've also interviewed at the trans-elite school which I'd rather not name. Tuck interview is scheduled well before the December deadline. The rest are invite only so let's see how it goes.

I'm really glad that Kellogg went of well because it is one of my top choices. I think I fit that school. But let's see how it goes.

BTW, the app process as you say is many times more involved than what I thought it would be. It just consumed my life.

Banerjea,

Is there some issue with posting interview questions on the board? Just asking.

I submitted my part-1 on September 19 and it took 3 weeks to get an interview assignment. Then it took me a few days to work out a mutually convenient schedule with the alum.

My Kellogg interview went something like this:

My interviewer was a somewhat recent Kellogg alum who was working for one of the top consulting firms. Since he was traveling full time and I was also traveling on and off, I had to take a day off to get the interview done. We decided to meet at a restaraunt convenient to both of us.

We hit it off right away when I first called him because both of us were huge College Football fans and we supported teams in the same conference. That helped break the ice in the interview as well. It also helped that I knew one of his classmates! The guy had read my Resume in great detail and had already underlined several areas. He first asked me to walk him through my professional experiences. I used this as a cue to talk about my career advance, goals and Why Kellogg all at once. This was my 10 minute speech that I had prepared well for and it floored him. He told me he was really impressed by my leadership and team experiences. For each level of my career, I had one anecdote, which he felt was a unique way of explaining a career path. He then asked me about what my leadership style was and how I developed it. Again, I gave a couple of anecdotes.

At this point (20 minutes), he told me that he felt I was one of the strongest candidates he had seen and said that he really had nothing more to say. He asked me if there was anything that I could tell him that is not in my application so that he can make a stronger pitch for me. I came up with a community service experience that I could not fit in my app. We then spent 15 minutes chatting on life in Evanston and social activities, watching football/baseball etc. Then we ended the interview.

Banerjeea,

Check your PM re Kellogg interview prep.

Re Sloan, yes that was very difficult. I used a recent promotion, clients that I worked for and community experiences but it was extremely hard to find some from last 2 years.

AJB,

I haven't receive ur PM yet. Cud u resend ? Thx....


Nocilis,

MIT app is a sneaky one. If u look at the essays outside of the inline app, there is no mention of this requirement. However, within the online app the same essays require u to draw events from 1-2 yrs in the past. I think this discrepency is quite unfair. I heard lot of ppl see this in the last min, when it is too late to change ur entire app. Moreover, how is one supposed to draw all these events from just 1-2 yrs ?
