Hi,

I'm an applicant from New Delhi. Anyone from around this part of the world receive an interview request yet?


I am from Mumbai. Submitted Round 1. No interview invite yet.


From Delhi as well - no invite as of now. Submitting part II in Round 1 by Oct 18th. hoping to see some action post that. On a separate note, what question are you (not only the Indians :) ) choosing in Essay 4?

Anybody else struggling to wrap this application up? I burned myself out on HBS, Wharton and Columbia now I just can't focus. I know my Kellogg essays still need work but my motivation to finish by the 18th is dwindling.

I just finished my essay drafts and sent them to my proofreaders! I work through the app little by little and I'm actually about 75% finished with it.

I think I'm going to write an essay for a different essay 4 question. I'm worried that my best example for the reluctant party essay is too similar to a different example I used in my leadership essay. However, both stories show a strong pursuit of my career goal. I guess I need to decide whether I want to really enforce one aspect of my story or offer a different perspective on myself through using the risky decision essay. What to do, what to do...


I figured out that my surprised to know essay would actually work better in the riskiest decision context.

Interview invites will most likely go out AFTER October 18. Kellogg's admissions committee does not begin to look at applications until after the submission deadline.

Is anyone else attending the Kellogg Diversity Preview Weekend on Nov 4 and 5? I booked a hotel room at the Best Western - University Plaza (just a few blocks from campus) for Nov 3-5.

If you are attending and would like to share a room with someone to save on costs, let me know! The hotel has two double beds and is $120 per night for the room.

I'll be there, but won't be staying at a hotel though.

Do we have an idea what the schedule is? Trying to figure out if I should stay there through Sunday.

I got an interview invite for an off-campus interview in the US. Somebody else on this forum had an interview in Paris, so they have started sending out off-campus interview invites at hub cities, I think.

You should probably leave yourself about 30 minutes to walk to campus from that hotel. It's farther from the south end of campus than you'd think and Anderson Hall is in the middle of campus.

I will be attending the Diversity Preview. I plan to get into town early Friday morning. I'm planning to stay through Monday so I can visit Booth as well. Shoot me a PM and we can discuss.

Does anybody have a list of questions that Kellogg sends to the interviewers? I've been looking at questions other programs ask and while I imagine they are very similar I was hoping their was a list for Kellogg?

I just completed my office campus alumni interview and there wasn't a real "script" - more like general conversation around the usual topics: school, work experiences, team experiences, career goals, etc.

I have my alumni interview as well, this week. Really excited!

I'm also attending the Diversity Preview weekend. Anyone looking to split a room at the Hilton Orrington, let me know!

Assume you are evaluating your application from the perspective of a student member of the Kellogg Admissions Committee. Why would you and your peers select you for admission, and what impact would you make as a member of the Kellogg community? (600 word limit).

For the second part of the question (i.e. what impact), should we still be writing from the perspective of the student member of AdCom?
What is everyone doing here?

Also, the more I think about it, this essay is becoming a mere re-statement of what I have already mentioned in the other parts of the application. Any ideas on how to make it better?

Looks like everyone enjoyed in the interviews. So I started wondering how would they filter applicants in this way. I feel that all of the applicants performed really well in this relaxed atmosphere of interview. I guess this will make adcom's work harder xD

The first part of the essay I wrote from the perspective of a student member of the adcom. I basically outlined what I thought they would be looking for then addressed how I demonstrated those qualities through my application. I tried really hard to position things from my resume and essays and tell them the conclusions they should draw from it.

The second part of the essay I simply talked about the things that I want to be involved in. All of them tied into interests/experiences mentioned in other parts of my application. For example, on my resume I highlight that I'm a runner. So I talked about being part of the Run|Bike|Swim Club. One of my leadership stories was about organizing a conference, so I mentioned wanting organize a particular student run conference at Kellogg. Basically I tried to use this essay to bring everything else I told them together into a more complete picture.

I think they want an evaluation of the impact that you will *potentially* have from the perspective of a student reading your applicaiton. If you write it as yourself, then you will be adding extra information not present elsewhere in the applciation.

That question still confuses me -- isn't your interview part of your application?

I'm assuming they only want stuff that's on your actual written application, though.

Golantrevize, I thought the same thing at first too. But I reread the question and there are actually two parts to it. The evaluate your app from a student adcom member part followed by the what do you plan to contribute part. I think when evaluating your app you should be careful not to add information that isn't already somewhere in the application. I think this question basically lets you tell them how they should interpret the aspects of your application that you choose to highlight in this area. For example, in my essay I told them that they should see my quantitative analytical ability through certain aspects of my job that I mentioned in my resume. I think I used about 360 words to evaluate my application. The remainder of the essay I talked about the contributions I want to make on campus. I would highly recommend tying the impact you want to make to areas in which you have experience or have already shown an interest. It just makes for a very tight story. For example, if you're a world traveler, suggesting that you would organize a KWEST trip makes perfect sense. If you are looking to do something totally outside your norm, that's cool too but it would help if you have shown evidence of being a risk taker and a "try new things" type of person. Maybe you moved to a different country for 6 months without knowing the language. Maybe you took up bullfighting a year ago. Then it would make sense that you'd want to try your hand at triathalons with the Run|Bike|Swim Club.

Okay, I'm rambling but I hope this helps someone frame up this question if they're struggling with it.
