Hi All,

I've just received a reminder email from Kellogg office of admission to submit the Part 1 of my application. :oops:
The email also mentions an electronic signature which has made me a bit concerned. Do we need to buy some kind of a digital signature to complete the app. or are they expecting us to simply upload a .jpg image of our signature.

Response will be highly appreciated.


No, you don't need a digital signature.

Neither...

They simply request that you type your name into a small text box. It hardly counts as a "signature" at all.

I am an international applicant. In Part 1 for US institution GPA what should I enter? My school also had a GPA on a 4.0 scale. For the non-US institution field, my school awards ranks every semester. Should I just enter my best rank or what?

- Also can we attach a screenshot of the transcripts or do they have to be scanned? Similarly for GMAT score report can we just attach a screenshot of the pdf document? I don't want to upload the entire document as I don't want the school to see what other schools I am applying to.

- Any idea whether internship be included in Part1? I am currently doing an unpaid internship in an area that I wish to pursue post-MBA. Should that be included as well?

Guys, in the Part - I of the application, there's a section called "Current Employment / Career Goal". How did you guys approach the "Long-term career goal" question, which is expected to be answered in about 10 words? Should I just be blunt and direct to answer this one-liner?

Also, in the "Activities" section, we are asked to "Provide description and offices held. Please specify if office is appointed or elected, if applicable (E=Elected, A=Appointed)."

- should this be descriptive or are they just expecting something like "Organizing Committee Member (A)" to be filled into this spot?

Any suggestions would help. Thanks!

Any thoughts on whether we should include internships in our resume, or whether we should include them in Part 1 of hte application? I am trying to keep my resume to 1 page, and have barely enough space for my various full time work experiences...

I think you answered your question yourself. One page usually not enough to put all the internships, activities and extracurriculars, that is what essays can be used for.

That is what I did--answered the question using one short sentence, something like "I want to start my own .... company"

In Activities section I just briefly mentioned what I did in what capacity.

Hi rnjbond,

I believe the website specifically mentions that on-campus interviews are reserved for students whom they have no other way of reaching. In fact they say that even students living in Chicago should request off campus interviews.

From the website:
"Chicago-area applicants must request an off-campus interview unless applying to the JD-MBA program. The interview requirement will be waived for Chicago-area applicants who request an on-campus interview. On-campus interviews are reserved for applicants with less direct access to Kellogg."

Hope this helps. :)

Yea it's not going to make much of a difference if you interview on campus or off. Even if you come to the campus you might be still be interviewed by a current student. Kellogg is a very collaborative school. :)

I don't think on-campus interviews are reserved solely for those who can't be interviewed off-campus. It's meant to provide an opportunity to visit the campus for those who want to make the trip. They have Chicago residents interview off-campus because those applicants can easily visit campus on their own time.

This one's for the admission consultants or somebody who's done with the first draft of the essays. How strict is the committee on the word limit? I've narrowed it down to 666 words for the first question, but really hate to prune it beyond that. What is the degree of flexibility, if any, on the word limit on the essays?

Btw, nice number that 666 :)

My personal opinion is that ~5-10% over is fine. I'm right there with you in the 660s for most of my Kellogg essays. I think it's more about overall look than it is about physical word count. If you're writing a 400 word essay and yours is the only one that the adcom reads that goes into the 2nd page, they'll probably be suspicious. But if it just has an extra 30-40 words, I doubt they'll even notice.

I may have "obsession" about this wordcount thing. I always trimed my essay into the exact wordcount the adcom required.^__-
