Corey,

Generally speaking, Kellogg likes applicants with unusually strong/active community or extracurricular profiles (i.e., long-term involvement with leadership roles).

Good luck,

Corey,

Your challenge is not your grades; it's your age and, in Kellogg's case, your extracurriculars. They will want to see a lot of leadership outside of work especially from someone with your amount of experience. As far as I know they probably do admit a very small number of people your age every year.

Good luck,
--Paul

Paul,

For which top 10 schools do I have the best chance of admission given your experience and my profile? My extracurriculars include advisory board member for manufacturing co (2 years), youth soccer coach (3 years), marriage mentor (4 years).

Thank you for your feedback.

Corey,

I feel like I've given you a fair amount of feedback already, so I'd be glad to answer any remaining questions you have on a consultant-client basis. Please email me at pbodine@accepted.com if you'd like to sign up for some consulting time.

Thanks,

I think it is great that you are considering applying to the top tier MBA programs and was incredibly disappointed to read that certain top tier schools tend towards the younger applicants (I am 41 and plan on applying this Fall -- not sure where yet).

Good luck and please keep us updated on your progress!
