Regarding the question about scholarships:

If you have a major (scholarship usually named after someone) scholarship, you find out around the time you get an admit or within a week or two after admit. All other scholarships are awarded as part of the financial aid process. The soft deadline for R2 scholarship apps is April 13th. Additional details are available through the welcome website.

FYI this what Kellogg officially states:

Merit scholarships will be awarded throughout the admissions process. Some admitted students will receive an award at the time of their decision but there are many opportunities for previously admitted applicants to receive a scholarship award.

This is worrying me. I have not heard anything from them after my interview on Jan 15th. Where are you checking the online status ? I dont see anything except the submit confirmation on my PART II application..?
Should I call as well ?


Should I be worried that my application showed the following before I even interviewed? How could it be complete w/o interview?

"All the required elements of your application are complete.

If your interview has been completed, the application has been submitted for review to the admissions committee. If your interview has not been conducted, the application will be submitted to the admissions committee upon completion of the interview. The next status check update will be the admission decision (Admit, Waitlist or Deny). When a decision has been rendered, the Office of Admissions will send you an email notifying you to check your status for your decision. Decisions will be released throughout the round, but the majority of decisions will be released during the last several weeks of the round. "

Mine still says that and I have been accepted, so don't sweat it.

edit: Actually, it just changed, about 20 hours after getting in.

I'm wondering if they'll even be sending anything during the upcoming spring break. Looking at the R1 decisions they took a week or so off over the holidays even though the decision deadline was Jan 7. Perhaps they'll do that here.

Keep a roll call together and we can add it to the top of the post. With Kellogg its good to keep updated since they roll out decisions.

Kellogg R1 :-)

Good luck everyone!

I'm currently starting with Columbia ED essays, cause I'd like to submit as early as possible, but I'm looking forward to Kellogg's application... one of the most comprehensive.

Cheers

This is always a tough question to answer - since it will depend on how you craft the rest of your essays and what you think you need to address most. I weighted about 2/3, 1/6, 1/6, but I spread "Why Kellogg" across multiple essays last year. I did this mostly because given my short work experience (3 years - 2.5 at essay time) I wanted to highlight my work progress most. For candidates with more experience, giving more depth to your plan and why Kellogg may pay more dividends.

It really is a personal tactical judgment, and there is no right answer. Just make sure that it flows together logically and fits strategically with your plan for the application as a whole.

agree with Steel. my "ratio" was 1/4 goals, 1/2 experience, 1/4 why Kellogg (and spread over all the other essays too).

It really depends on whether your goal is very specific, how long you worked, and what your other essays are about.

Interesting! in my draft outlines so far, it's shaping up to be 1/3 experience, 1/3 goals, 1/3 why Kellogg. Don't know if that's what the final product will be like but that's where it is so far :)

Just finished my first essay draft and it's 3 pages with 0.5" margins. Man this is going to be tough getting rid of 33% of the content.
