so noon central time huh? No call, no email, no updates online. Just hair pulling.


Pretty sure you got it :). Kellogg or Tuck? That's a tough decision for you.

On my end - DE-NIED. That was disappointing.

Professor X, your GMAT score is ONLY 30 points lower than Kellogg's average, and I am pretty sure you didn't get rejected because of the score - there has to be something else in your profile which caused the DING. I got a 640 and I got waitlisted in R2. Seems like you might be reapplying next year, and I will highly recommend if you don't bash a school in a public forum. Your story is unique enough that they will know or can find out who you are. Discretion is important in these conditions.

Riverfish, I think it'd be awesome if you went to Kellogg. ;)

Congratulations to those of you who were offered a spot at Kellogg! I wish I could be joining you there later this year =(

I couldn't help but laugh a bit at how much the deny status message pushes the "it's not you, it's us [and the number of really awesome people who apply here]"...

I'm trying to get back on my feet now and would really appreciate your collective wisdom and guidance - do you have any recommendations on what would be most effective? Step one for me will be re-evaluate myself and the application materials I submitted to see if I aimed too high so I don't waste time re-applying to Kellogg if I'm not up to snuff.

I'm new to the forums so if this is something that has been asked a lot already and for which there are many of resources, I'd be happy to head that way.


I'm not sure of your profile but all I can say is that I applied last year, was waitlisted and never got in. I re-applied this year (waited until r3) and got admitted. It can be tough to evaluate your own profile, and I had people tell me last year that I was a stretch for Kellogg, but I felt all along that it was a great fit for me and that I could get in.

Anyway the point of what I'm getting at is that you should have confidence in yourself and that you should re-apply next year. I was burned out last year after being waitlisted at 3 schools and not getting in to any of them, but I improved my work experience and extracurriculars (I involved myself more in my undergrad school's alumni network with current students) and I think that really helped. My main weaknesses were my undergrad GPA and probably my extracurriculars, but I think improving your profile in any area will help you. It's better to be really strong in one area than average across the board (in my opinion).

In for R1!

Saw a tweet from Kellogg about the off-campus admission events this year - registration is not open for most cities yet though... http://kellogg.northwestern.edu/Program ... vents.aspx

Just got an email from Kellogg about an info session in my city and registered for it. Most likely leaning towards applying next year, though this year is still a maybe.

I can't speak to your specific situation, but from all the research I've done, career switchers seem to benefit the most from a two-year program, which provides the opportunity to develop some hands-on experience during the summer internship.

Looking at applying either in R1 or R2. I'm going to be in the city in late September and was looking to connect with a student to chat over some coffee and maybe take a look around campus.

Any GMAT Club'er available around campus at that time?

I've loved meeting people from Kellogg and am applying R1!

I have started working on the essays, and I'm wondering what people's thoughts are to the 2nd essay--how many experiences are you going to draw from?
