It's probably fine to use acronyms that are school-specific and these insider acronyms might actually help show that you have strong knowledge of the program. I decided not to, though; instead I said "Social Enterprise at Kellogg (SEEK)" so I could use the acronym again later. 508 words is totally fine. I was naughty and had 540 in one, and well, I still got in...Nonetheless, make sure those extra words are absolutely essential. Usually they're not.


Thanks buddy ! Totally appreciate it. :)

Although, now my naughty side is provoking me to go back to the raw drafts and seek out information that I previously couldn't fit and may be make my essays 525 words :-D

I was on the dreaded WL last year and am hoping for something better this time :)

In my experience, you can get rid of most adverbs ("-ly" words) without materially changing the meaning of your sentences. Maybe give that a shot?

I crawled a few search engine results but only found threads at least a few years old... so does anyone know if Kellogg currently has a preference or specification on single vs. 1.5 vs. double line spacing? Font (Arial, Times New Roman, etc.)? Thanks in advance ~

I don't think Kellogg has a preference for any spacing or font. I personally used single spacing, Times New Roman size 12 for my essays.

I'm wrapping up my R2 essays for Kellogg's Two-Year Program, but the more I read about the MMM dual degree program, the more interesting it sounds. I have already submitted Part 1 of the application though, so I can't switch the program that I am applying to.

My question: does the standard Two-Year program offer the course flexibility to take some of the design-based courses that the MMM focuses on? And if I decide that I want to be considered for the MMM program after I submit my application, how easy is that to do? Basically, am I locked in, or is that an easy change to make?

Thanks!

I attended an info session and someone asked about switching his application to MMM after submitting for the regular MBA. The AdCom officer said it is possible to switch, but whether the switch will be successful depends on when you make the request and how many offers they've already extended to MMM candidates

I don't think non-MMM can take MMM classes.

I highly recommend the MMM program if it fits your goals. You get two masters for the price of one.

I'm wondering how u missed the deadline? It's still abt 11 hrs away?!

The deadline is 11.59pm Central Time.
If you're a non-US applicant remember the deadline is according to the US central time zone.
