finished my video essay!! was actually way less painful than i thought it would be!

does anyone know if we need to send official score reports to Kellogg for the application to be complete? when i took the GMATs, i didnt list Kellogg on the list of schools so they don't have a copy of my official score report. my applicant status page reads "Please note, unofficial test scores will be accepted during the review stage, however, all applicants should ensure that official test scores are sent to Kellogg for verification purposes". Does this mean i can send them whenever or I should be rushing to get these to them ASAP?


You should probably get it out of the way sooner rather than later. If I remember correctly, they asked us to upload the official score report as well if we had them. My score was "verified" before I even submitted the application


yeah you are right, I should send out the score report soon. i don't recall uploading the unofficial score report for kellogg and its not showing up in my application proof...can anyone confirm if they asked for this in the application?? also, i noticed the only GMAT scores that showed up as 'verified' for me were the ones for schools that i listed on GMAT while taking the exam.


Yes. they did ask for it in the application. In my application, it does show as verified. I sent the official score report separately about 10 days before the deadline.

It says not verified, but when I looked at it again, I'm pretty sure you can just upload a copy of your score report and it is something that can be verified when you are admitted (same as for official transcripts).

In the same boat! Mine was horrible :-( despite doing a ton of practice videos. Oh well.

Haven't heard anything RE interviews yet. Although I'm doing an off campus one.

FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: Why I chose the Kellogg One-Year MBA Program: Juliana Merola ’14


Juliana Merola ’14 was laser-focused on financial services — and had been for some time. She worked in banking for years and even had a finance degree.

Alumni Spotlight: Jen Moore ’04  [#permalink]

FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: Alumni Spotlight: Jen Moore ’04
Get to know some of Kellogg’s alumni who are bringing bold entrepreneurial visions to life.

It’s a familiar scenario: You get home from work — starving, tired and wondering what’s for dinner. Do you cook? Or do you order takeout?

Jen Moore ’04 wants you to choose the former. And her company, Meez Meals, is making the process a whole lot easier.

Founded in 2010, Meez Meals is an Evanston-based service that delivers prepped ingredients and simple recipes for making quick, tasty meals at home. Its name comes from the French phrase “mise en place,” a culinary term for ingredients that have been prepped and organized for cooking.

Each week, customers choose from an ever-changing menu of meatless meals, such as Arugula Pesto Orecchiette, Tacos Provençal and Spinach Pancakes with Basil Corn Relish, and select the number of servings. The following Monday, they get a cooler delivered to their door with all the ingredients pre-chopped and portioned, along with step-by-step instructions for making the dishes in 30 minutes or less.

Cooking up a solution

As a Kellogg student, Moore knew that she eventually wanted to start her own company, but didn’t know what it would be. She studied brand management “because it would give me the experience of running all aspects of a business, owning a P&L, managing cross-functional teams and all those other wonderful things,” she says. “That path turned out to be a great one, giving me the experience I needed to launch my own business.”

Moore came up with the idea for Meez Meals in 2009, while she was still working as a brand manger for Unilever. She noticed that her sister, a working mom, found the process of making dinner stressful, even though she used to love cooking. “She said that she just wanted someone to cut everything up for her,” Moore recalls. “And I said, ‘Well, gee, that’s an idea. I can do that.’”

The timing turned out to be perfect: When Meez Meals launched, it was the only company offering a DIY meal kit. Moore knew, however, that “it was only a matter of time until national companies entered the market.”

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

While the question is open ended, it is not that open either.

The deadline is 6 hours away to get the video essays in!
All the best people :)

B School Moderator Missxmelon's great post from Class of 2016 discussion.

missxmelon wrote:
I just submitted my application for Round 1, so I thought I'd post about my overall experience.

As I was doing a final check of all the sections, I was shocked to find the awards / certifications page blank! I had typed up descriptions for six awards eons ago and knew the page had saved. Like everyone else I'm sure, I've done check after check of each page and never found any issues. I have no idea how they were erased. There's no way I clicked delete next to each description or went into each box, highlighted everything, and pressed delete. In any case, I'm glad I did a final review. It wasn't too much of a hassle re-typing the descriptions... and thankfully all of the other pages (including the more verbose ones) were fine.

In hindsight, I should have copied and pasted each short answer / description into a MS Word document for safe-keeping. :(

Now onto the video essay, which users seem to be quite shy about sharing. :)

To prepare, I searched the internet in length to see if anyone had posted their questions. I only found two: "What is one thing you've always wanted to try?" and "What is one piece of technology you can't live without?". I needed more to practice with, though, so I searched the internet for random personal questions. I ended up picking a few from this site (I'm sure there are other resources out there, too): http://www.dwanollah.com/blather/082006/

For each question, I typed out an outline of points I wanted to hit. Then, I recorded myself on my computer and watched each video afterwards to dissect my areas of improvement. (My goodness you really get to know your flaws...) Once I got the right tone down, I started to time myself. After I picked a question, I gave myself a minute to prepare my response. (You actually get 90 seconds, but I wanted to be prepared in case I somehow lost a few seconds.) Then I immediately started recording. It was a more realistic environment making myself perform under pressure.

So, how did my preparation help me for the real deal?

My first question was: "What is the most interesting course you took in university?"

I felt as if I had ample time to come up with talking points (like as if I had an extra 30 seconds... ;)). When the actual recording began, though, I totally choked and had to discard the video. It's tough remembering all the classes you took in university, much less the details about those classes!

(It was my first try, okay?! Call it stage fright. :oops: )

The second question, unfortunately, completely caught me off guard: "If you could meet anyone (living or dead), who would it be and why?"

My mind raced through historical figures, athletes, musicians, but ultimately I didn't have enough substance to talk about any one person. To be honest, I didn't feel strongly about this question, though I know it probably resonates with some people. So I made a tough decision... to discard this one, too.

Dun dun dun... I was resigned to my third and final question. My heart was beating so fast; the pressure was on.

"What is your most treasured possession and why?"

:shock: OMG. I struck gold. This was a question I had prepared for already! I just used the 90 seconds to go over my points again and calm myself down. Then I recorded my best video yet. :-D :-D

So in conclusion, preparation for the video essay definitely helps. :P

Oh, and once you click "Submit Application," there's no going back. I mean nothing prompts you to ask if you're sure or to ask you to sign anything. There's no preview of your application. Your application is just...submitted, and then you pay. So be sure to do a final check before you click submit! There's also no way to see your application after you've submitted it. I guess that's so no one bothers the Adcom about changing anything in their application. It certainly forces you to stop poring over your already-submitted-and-unchangeable application!

Hope this helps! Good luck everyone!
