Hey guys,

Does it weigh negatively on your app if your recommenders submit in the last couple of days?

My app is ready but my recommenders won't be able to make it before 23-24, or may be both on the same date.

Is it gonna raise a red flag if both of them submit on the same day?

completed the video essay woooohoooooooo. finishing up essays for other schools seem so easy now compared to all the Kellogg components :)

To prepare I went through this list http://piyushj.com/2014/01/mba/kellogg- ... tion-list/ posted last year and just got a rough idea of what I'd say for each one and also narrowed down my #1 reason for "why Kellogg" bc there's definitely not time to say them all. After that I just hoped that I didn't get one I didn't really care about. The 20 seconds to prepare goes by pretty quick! I feel ready to start prepping for the interview after prepping for this though.



thanks for sharing! which two questions were you asked??


hey homeone, perfer not to say exactly since Kellogg doesn't publish the questions but they do publish that

1. will be on your interest in Kellogg, super open ended question so you can do what you want with it
2. personal or experience related question, mine was a non-trivial (it was not: what's your favorite food) but not too tough question from the posted list. preparing like you would for an interview, but without as much depth since you're talking for 60 seconds versus a conversation with a human that can ask for more detail, should be pretty good prep

good luck!

Ackkk I submitted my video essays and went a second too long on the Kellogg question so my last word was cut off. Hopefully, that doesn't count against me.

Nothing else to do now, but hope for the best!

I know the Round 1 deadline for Kellogg is September 24th. Additionally, we have a week after submitting our application to complete the video essay. However, does the video essay also have to be completed before September 24th if we want to be considered in Round 1?


I have the same question. I tried researching for an answer everywhere on Kellogg website but couldn't spot anything that specifically addressed whether the deadline for the video essays is the same as for the rest of the application


Thanks masoy! I was starting to think I was crazy. I'm just going to try to get my recommenders to finish up their recommendations a few days early.


The FAQs for the video essay section on their application process webpage states that "After submitting your application you will be given access to the Video Essay component and will have one week after the application is due to complete the Video Essay."

I think we can submit it till a week after the application deadline.

FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: Why I chose the Kellogg Two-Year MBA Program: Otmane El Manser ’14


After four years in technology consulting, Otmane El Manser ’14 needed a change. He also needed core management skills and the chance to explore different careers. So he turned to Kellogg’s Full-Time Two-Year (2Y) Program. He felt confident that the program’s emphasis on general management would prepare him to lead in any industry and any role.

While at Kellogg, Otmane became both a Siebel Scholar and a winner of the Ross Prahalad Case Competition.

ABOUT THE TWO-YEAR PROGRAM

Our Two-Year MBA Program is for students who want to gain the confidence to lead boldly and challenge conventional thinking in the global marketplace. You will build core management skills and then move on to specialized electives that reflect their areas of interest. Whether you are inside or outside the classroom, you will learn to lead by practicing in an environment that gives you an opportunity to try new things.

After you complete the required courses, you will have the opportunity to customize your experience through a wide range of electives and more than 1,000 experiential learning opportunities. The program is also proud to offer an unparalleled number of global learning options, including 37 exchange programs across 20 countries.

Absolutely butchered the video essay this weekend. For some reason my internet connection cut out (?!) and when it came back I went right to the actual questions. I only got one practice in. Not good.

Everything is submitted now. Good luck to everyone.

BTW, I scheduled my interview Monday morning, and it sounded like there were many spots left for anyone scrambling last minute.

In for Round 1. Quick question: I submitted my application last night and have not completed the Video Essay portion. Do I have to wait until I complete the Video Essay before I can schedule an on-campus interview? I don't see anywhere on the website that allows me to schedule the interview.

Thanks.

I'm an international applicant - but I'm in Canada so I'm heading to campus to do the interview.

If you are requesting an off-campus interview, they will get in touch with you within 3 weeks I believe with your interview details.

No. Just call admissions to schedule your interview. No need to do the video essays before scheduling the interview.

Alumni Spotlight: Elaine Russell ’09  [#permalink]

FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: Alumni Spotlight: Elaine Russell ’09
Get to know some of Kellogg’s alumni who are bringing bold entrepreneurial visions to life.

Sometimes, the Internet serves as a guide. Netflix, Amazon, your favorite online clothing retailer — all offer a menu of recommended items. Shoppers get the convenience of similar options at the ready. Retailers keep the shoppers clicking.

Now, apply that to a purchase that can be one of the most uncertain and stressful: jewelry. To address that niche, Elaine Russell ’09 founded Heirlumé, a company that takes the guesswork out of gift giving, at least when it comes to all that glitters.

“The gift giving industry is a big one,” said Russell, who co-founded the company. “Jewelry is the No. 1 gift men give women, and people need a lot of help.”

Return to Chicago

A veteran of Silicon Valley, Russell was vice president of product at e-commerce company Storeplacer.com and worked for Tinyprints.com until Shutterfly bought it in 2011. That’s when Russell moved back to Chicago and got into the startup scene.

Fine jewelry is a $40 billion industry in the United States, with 80 percent of it men buying jewelry for women. But for shoppers, department stores and big chains generally mean lower-quality products and over-eager commissioned salespeople.

“Jewelry is a hard gift to figure out,” said John Adolph, a Heirlumé shopper and attorney from Dallas, Texas. “It’s hard to get good feedback without giving it away that I am trying to get a gift.” A friend told Adolph about Heirlumé and he decided to give it a shot.

Learn more about Elaine and how Kellogg helped her get where she is today.

I doubt it. On campus interviews run to the beginning of November if I'm not mistaken.

Kellogg tries to interview everyone. I'm not sure what their R1 applications number is this year, but if they average about 5500 applicants a year - and we assume 2500 of those to be first round applicants - and take into mind the international and Chicago based applicants interviewing offsite, you are looking at about 1300 interviews they must conduct on campus. That's a lot!

Hey, I believe Kellogg is blind. With that said, I was only told to bring my resume to the interview. Hope that helps.
