I got a reply saying the video essay will be waived for me because I had trouble with it. The email also mentioned they know a lot of people are having problems. So don't freak out if nothing works, email Admissions & get it waived

Application is in. Sure feels good. Sounds like there were some people having issues with the video essay. I lost connection on my first attempt. I was fine with it, because I couldn't think of any great answers to the question. The second one went well. I felt good about it, but when I watched it, I noticed that for about 7 seconds, the video froze. Luckily the audio was fine. I was really happy with my response, so I didn't dare try again.

I was asked, "If you could teach a class on any subject, what would it be and why?" and "What is one interesting thing about you that you would want your future Kellogg classmates to know about you?"

Good luck everyone!

Absolutely no issues with the video essay. Just followed the on-screen instructions. My video took 1100 seconds to upload.

Good luck everyone

You can do as many 10-second test recordings as you want. And yes, you can logout and come back later to do the real thing.

You need to call your recommender until she picks up the phone.

I guess Kellogg changed its policy. Last year, Kellogg accepted a late recommendation for my application.

man it sucks so many people are having trouble with the video essay. Must be overload from everyone trying to use it at the same time. I did mine a few weeks ago and had no issues.

I had the video essay waived this morning. Just called the number and said I was having technical difficulties. They said they were waiving it for a ton of people and it would not impact my evaluation.

They should just not look at it for any applicant if they're going to waive it for some people.

In the application proof PDF, I dont see any of the documents I have uploaded - Resume, Essays, Transcripts, only the information I have typed online. Is that the case with everyone?

Cool. Thanks for confirming. It is weird to not see everything in one place, but I guess that is ok.

quick question for those who waived the video: does it still show on the application or the section is just removed from the app?

It still shows on the application. The guy on the phone told me not to worry that it tells me the video section has not been completed and just continue to submit anyway.

I was under the impression that if you asked for an on-campus interview, once you submitted your application you were able to schedule a date. I have a very specific week in which I would be able to do an interview on campus, so I was trying to submit a little earlier than the rest of the crowd... but the only confirmation email I got was one saying that my payment has been received. Hope I didn't miss something!



Ha. Nevermind. Just got the email. Patience is a virtue!



So you received a confirmation email? I only received the confirmation of payment. I also need to schedule an on campus interview.
