Nice! Congrats on finishing the essays way ahead of schedule.

Quick question - how much time are you spending on these essays? Not sure if I'm spending too much time, or not enough. I think I'm averaging about 16+ hours on each.


For actual writing, I think there's a good chance I'll spend close to 16 hours on each, (I'm waiting until R2). If you consider all the research and brainstorming, it's probably more.


Thanks MC - that makes me feel better. I'm also re-targeting for R2 based on how long these are taking me. Hard pill to swallow (I was originally planning on all 5 schools for R1, now 3 of those are slipping to R2) but I realize that my profile (GMAT and GPA in particular) is not a homerun so my essays need to be stellar.


Side note: When is everyone scheduled for their interview? Mine is in November. Never visited Chicago in the winter but I hear it get's pretty darn chilly.

I've been in Alaska in January and I've been in Chicago in January. Chicago wins the "coldest" contest by a mile. Never felt cold like that before.

Is there anywhere on the Round 1 portion to list post-undergraduate extension courses you've taken? I can only find the inputs for graduate degrees. Anyway, I'd love to input my extension courses.

Thanks wiredo. Thats something like what Ross is asking for on their essays so sounds like a good guideline.

Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere, but does anyone know what format (font, spacing, document type etc) the essays have to be in? The only instruction I found in the application was for a 1 inch margin at the top of the page.

Thanks in advance,


Hmm ... I hadn't thought about this yet. I think I'll stick to the following format though
Document type: PDF
Margin: 1 inch all around
Font/size: Times New Roman, size 11
Spacing: Not sure yet

The top part of the recommendation letter form has a place for you to waive your rights and sign etc. Do I need to sign this and give the to my recommender for them to fill out the rest and actually upload this exact form? Or do they type in their answers after they receive the link from the school?

For Kellogg, the recommenders upload their recommendation as a Word document or PDF. For all of the schools, your recommenders will receive an email with a link to the recommendation page.


There is a 2-4 page limit for the recommendations. I am guessing this is for the total of all questions, and not for each of the 5 questions?

Re: Calling all Kellogg Fall 2011 Applicants! [#permalink] New post 28 Sep 2010, 08:47
Was looking for some advice on how to approach this:

I reached out to a Kellogg alum (husband of my wife's friend) to learn more about Kellogg and get some advice, etc. We had a great conversation over a couple beers - he was honest about things he liked and didn't like about Kellogg, and I shared some mistakes I've made and problems with my application.

I found out last night that he was going to be interviewing applicants in my area. Should I request an off-campus in an effort to get him as my interviewer (It's pretty likely I'd get him - he said there was only one more alum in the area)? Would he maybe use things I told him against me? Would he even be allowed to interview me, or would he be expected to decline?

I was originally planning on an on-campus interview, but I may try to work this to gain a bit of an advantage...I'm just not sure if it's worth it.

Hey guys

anyone with insight into recommendations. I'm thinking about asking one from my direct manager and one from another manager within the business (my relationship with her is more through our company's affinity group. I've worked for her in that capacity, organizing conferences, community service and networking events etc.)

My question is whether a formal relationship is expected with your recommender
(e.g. a former supervisor, previous employer, client, etc.)

appreciate any insight :)

Thanks guys

:shock: Better pack some gloves.

Matador - this is just my personal opinion, but I think you're safe here. Schools seem to stress the importance of having a current supervisor (or client, etc. if you don't have a supervisor) for at least one recommendation. Since that base is covered, I'd say another manager who knows you in a different light would be fine, and probably a good thing, since they can speak to another aspect of your candidacy.

Hmm, that's an interesting situation you're in. My first thought is he'd probably be expected to decline and the other alum would interview you, but of course I could be wrong. Whether or not he interviews you, you'll still have to answer the same questions. I suppose the 'stress factor' would be significantly lower since you already know the guy, but if you're a good in the hot seat, that's going to be a wash anyway. My real concern is what items (problems with application, mistakes) you discussed during your initial meeting. I'm sure none of them were show-stoppers, but if they are leaning that way, I probably wouldn't want my interviewer walking in knowing about them beforehand.

I also recently found out that a client director that works in the same org as me is a Kellogg alum, and he's a very nice guy. Too bad I already scheduled an on-campus :?

It sounds like something that could definitely work to your advantage if he's willing to help you out, but it's also unethical. Based on the training for alum interviewers and the honor code, there's a good chance that he won't be able to interview you (conflict of interest). As to whether he would hold things against you, I guess that depends on your relationship.

Thanks for the insight. I think I'll schedule an on-campus interview regardless.
