My Chances at Kellogg's [#permalink] New post 15 Aug 2006, 17:27
I posted this a few weeks ago, but no one got back to me. ANyone have any thoughs?

Kellogg's is my dream school.

I've just gotten 740 on my GMAT and I'm planning on applying for Fall 2007 deadline.

I have 4 years of work experience in a technology oriented publication. I currently reside as the assistant managing editor. I've had great success in this field, and I would like an MBA to help me do even better in the technology publication industry.

I went to a top 50 US techonology oriented institute, graduating with a 3.6 GPA. My major was Electronic Arts, with a minor in CompSci and another minor in Game Studies.

My long-term goal: To start up a technology publication of my own.

But first, I'd like to go to Kellogg's because I want to concentrate on marketing. Too often do I see mistakes made by those in touch with the tech-world and not so much with reality. I think an MBA will help me bridge the gap between the "nerdy" and the corporate savvy.

Does anyone have any tips/suggestions for me?

Thanks in advance

I think you have a great shot at K. Go pick up copies of "How to get into the top MBA programs" by R. Montauk and "Your MBA game plan" and "65 successful HBS application essays." all great books. Start devouring now. good luck.

The Montauk book is awesome and helped me get into both Kellogg and Chicago GSB. Position yourself as different and unique and you should do well. Good luck!

I think you stand a very good chance. You come from a very unique angle -- trust me, I know this b/c I come from a publishing background (trade books) and will be starting Kellogg in September!!

good luck and let me know if you have any specific questions about the essays, etc. (send a private message)
