I dont arrive in Evanston for a few more weeks but I know several other members of this site have already moved in. I am sure there are more than a few incoming students wandering around evanston these days.

Also 1Y is in session, did you check to see if you could get in a class visit. I believe you can sit in, so make sure you go to the admissions office and ask them. You can verify this information on their website under visits, they have days visits are available and what classes/times you can go to.


hey river - I did check about the 1Y classes - the Adm office said I could only sit in on the 8 and 10am Turbo Finance classes. Unfortunately, I'll be driving in and won't reach Chicago until about 10 am and will be too late to catch the class. :(

So! I revised my plan and will be visiting U-Chicago in the morning (hopefully getting to the 10:30 info session) and then will be going to Kellogg in the PM for the 2pm info session. Also, G in the office said she felt bad that I couldn't meet with anyone for lunch, and said she'd see if she could find someone for me to have coffee with after the session :wink: So I might even meet a current student - woo. :)

Question regarding the application...

Do most people submit Part 1 as soon as they can? How quickly do you interview (on-campus) after you submit Part 1? Do you have to submit Part 2 before the actual interview or can you interview before Part 2 has been submitted?

Thanks!

Kellogg has a bunch of scheduled events coming up, you can find ones close to you. I think last years a lot were held at local Bain offices in big cities.

Yes if you work at Bain a schools like Kellogg is probably a pretty safe bet. Remember getting hired by one of the big three out of undergrad means you went to a great UG, had a very good GPA, and are a stellar candidate...combine that with impressive work experience and its clear they are going to end up at a top school.

terp06, register your recommenders ASAP, give them the survey with 1-2 months of time, and make sure they send in the survey/letters before the Part II deadline. While the wording is confusing on the Kellogg website, I would not risk it, since I doubt the adcoms would be ok with a "but your website was confusing" excuse. :wink:


The Kellogg app doesn't go live til the fall. Is there a place I can find a pdf of the Kellogg CPS forms so my recommenders can start working on them?

Great. Thanks river. I assume the CPS isn't going to change much and I can have my recommender start working on it.

If Kellogg allows the recommender to print out the form and type in their responses, it looks like they aren't looking for paragraphs from the recommender. There's only space for 3-4 sentences on the CPS form.

Its probably a safe bet that the form wont change much...their essays didnt change much so I would say the CPS will also remain the same.

From what I remember, they do it online so there is more room than on the CPS form. You have to provide them with an email for your recommenders.

I'm aiming for R1 as well (I hope!). Time to get cracking!

What tools have you guys found most helpful for staying organized with the applications? I'm going for the big desk calendar with weekly deadlines.

I'm quoting myself here, I guess afterall, I don't have a problem with a cutesy screen name on here.

At any rate, I've got my calendar and I'm plugging away. Am I reading the deadlines at Kellogg correctly? If you are doing an on campus interview, both part one and part two of round one are due on Oct 17th?

You will want to get PT 1 done and out of the way ahead of time. Its not very challenging and one less thing to worry about.

Part one cannot be completed until they put the application online, correct?

Yes it will be online. I will see if I can dig up my files in the next few days that have what part 1 and 2 had on it last year. I may have shredded all that stuff though. Part 1 has a part where you put your job description, not necessarily a resume since you also submit a resume but what your position typically entails. I know I got my job description from my employer and made that fit.

Can you schedule an interview once you submit Part 1 but before Part 2? Can you actually interview before Part 2 has been submitted?

Yes, you can schedule an interview right after you submit Part I. You can actually interview before Part 2 has been submitted.

check your status every week after you submit Part I and scheduled an interview. Sometimes you'll get an interview invite but it won't come through your email. I submitted my Part I end of October, 2007, and got an invite 11/5/2007, which I didn't see until end of December, 2007. I interviewed a few days before Part II was due.

Does it make any difference whether one interviews on campus or off at Kellogg? I have heard a couple things:

-On-campus interviews are more predictable (alumni can be moody, biased, etc)
-Off-campus interviews are OK if you have already visited the school
