Well, it's a little bit hard for me to answer precisely, cause you kind of glossed over your work experience a bit too quick. So maybe elaborate a bit more about what you do,w hat your position is, what management exp. you have, what promotions etc, and this will give me a better idea. Otherwise with a 690 and your GPA, things are solid and could go any way. I think it would be silly not to apply to Kellogg, even if you do feel it is a long shot, given it's ranking as the number 1 marketing program. You may be a bit of a stretch, but that's okay. Having one or two stretch schools in your strategy is good.

So get back to me with a bit more detail about your WE. Everything else looks very good. And I'll get back to you.
