No, bschool is pretty much the same as undergrad when it comes to coming home smelling of alcohol.

I would reiterate what avernusaur said about essay 3: it really doesn't matter whether you write it in the 1st or 3rd person. Content is king.

Your reassurance (about the drinking AND essay format) is comforting. :P

You might have. Do you take Business Strategy at 8:30am or a Decision in Uncertainty class at 1:30pm on Thursdays? I got a chance to see those two.

I barely missed you in the admissions office, as I was wrapping up my interview around the time you'd have been heading to that Decision in Uncertainty class.

GMATClub members need a secret pin they can wear on their shirts to signal others of their presence :)

Why on earth would you choose to sit in on the DECS class (Decision in Uncertainty)? Even the students don't want to be there.

All in all though, it's a good quarter to visit classes; a lot of the most popular professors are on the visit list. If you're here for a visit, I'd highly recommend any of Profs. Calkins, Hennessy, Diermeier, Rebelo, or Grayson's classes.

Jerz,

I wanted to see a nice class and one that is considered not so nice so I know full scale of what to expect. Both course topics fit with my goals, though the decision class sounded better than what it was -basic stats and probability.

For what it's worth, I didn't write Essay #3 in 3rd person.


I didn't use 3rd person either, quite frankly I found that style of writing didn't really connect with me.

Completed my off-campus alum interview yesterday, it was very laid back and informal and I think it went well. Now for the long (or short??) wait...

Hi, everyone! I'm a newbie here and have one question.
I've submitted part 1 of the application but haven't started the essays yet. What will happen if I don't submit part 2 by Oct 14? Will my app be in Round 2 automatically? Or I lose my chance and can't apply in Round 2 now?

Thanks for your answers in advance!

You will be considered for admission in the round that you submit part 2. If you don't submit part 2 until round 2, that is when you will be considered for admission.

I'll be applying in R2. *bites nails*

Background: I've got 8 years of experience in print and online journalism; a year ago, if you'd asked me about grad school at Northwestern, I'd have assumed you meant Medill. Personally, having hired half a dozen Medill grads over the years for sub-$35K jobs, I think Kellogg is probably a much smarter investment!

I take the GMAT Oct. 19. Aiming for 700. Will update when I get my scores.
