I received the interview invitation today too and I submitted and completed my video essays on 9/22. It may staged in rounds based on location.

As to responding, I didn't write anything lengthy or cover-letter esque. I just explained that I was a Kellogg applicant and had been instructed to contact her. Then I asked for her availability.

Obama to Kellogg: Business is the future  [#permalink]

FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: Obama to Kellogg: Business is the future
Image

Speaking to an assembly of Kellogg students, President Barack Obama on Thursday said the business leaders of tomorrow are the key to a strong economy.

“There is a reason why I came to a business school instead of a school of government,” Obama said. “I actually believe business is the greatest force for prosperity and opportunity that the world has ever known.”

Obama spoke at Cahn Auditorium to a crowd of Kellogg students in what university President Morton Schapiro called “a very special day in the life of Northwestern” in his introduction to the president.

“This is a university that is brimming with the possibility of the new economy,” Obama said as he began his address. “You can’t help but visit a campus like this and feel the promise of the future.”

‘A clear-eyed look’

Obama, who delivered the commencement address for the Class of ’06, said on Thursday it was time for “a clear-eyed look at our economy.”

“The gains of recovery are not yet broadly shared, or at least broadly shared enough,” Obama said.

In a speech that touched on issues including education, health care and energy, the president also spoke on the importance of parity for women in business, praising Dean Sally Blount ’92 for her work in this area.

“Let’s do what Dean Blount is doing here at Kellogg,” Obama said, speaking of Blount’s work with the White House.

For those of you who were already invited for an off-campus interview: did anything show up on your application status page indicating that you were invited?

I submitted everything on 9/15, and I'm hoping to hear from them soon. I am in Orlando - maybe there aren't a ton of alums here? My understanding is that everyone is invited to interview. Is that correct?

No my applicant page hasn't changed. There isn't anything about the interview.

Yes, Kellogg interviews everyone. I'm sure they are just staggering them over the next couple months since they have to interview so many people. I can't imagine getting an interview email earlier or later is any indicator of success.

Leading the Pledge of Allegiance during President Obama’s trip to Kell  [#permalink]

FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: Leading the Pledge of Allegiance during President Obama’s trip to Kellogg
Image

I received a phone call from Dean Betsy Ziegler on Wednesday afternoon, asking for me to call her back as soon as possible. When I returned her call, Dean Ziegler said, “We have submitted your name and it was approved to say the Pledge of Allegiance before President Obama. Would you be willing to represent Kellogg and lead the crowd in the Pledge of Allegiance?”

I told her that I would be honored.

President Barack Obama was going to speak to Kellogg students, and the nation, about the economy, and I was going to say the Pledge of Allegiance prior to his speech.

After hanging up the phone, the pressure of the situation I just agreed to set in! The Pledge of Allegiance is something we all know, so why all of a sudden did it seem like there were so many words to memorize?!

I started rehearsing throughout the afternoon. After telling my family what I would be doing for the event, there was one common theme of advice: don’t mess it up.

I arrived at the event on Thursday around 11 a.m. to be shown into Cahn Auditorium. About an hour later, I was shown backstage with Ethan Simpson, a graduate student at the Bienen School of Music, who would be singing the National Anthem. After a brief wait, the announcer said over the speakers, “Ladies and gentlemen, please stand and join Zach Frisbie in saying the Pledge of Allegiance.”

As soon as I walked on stage, I realized there must be an issue with the speakers because the audience clearly did not hear the message. Everyone was standing in small groups casually talking. I can only imagine people thinking, “Who is this guy on stage?”

As I approached the podium, I asked everyone to please stand and join me in reciting the Pledge. All nerves vanished as the crowd joined me in honoring the flag. As a veteran of the United States Army, I was extremely proud to represent Kellogg.

President Obama discussed many important topics in his speech, but there are two that really stuck out to me. The first is the importance of innovation and how that drives growth in the economy. As he talked about the emergence of the energy industry and reduced dependence on foreign oil, a majority of that growth is a result of entrepreneurs within the industry finding new solutions and allowing for us to secure our energy independence. We must continually look at new ways of doing things better, staying at the front of new and emerging technologies to be the market leader.

The second point came at the end of his speech. The President stated that as we continue our pursuit of profits in business, we do so with a sense of purpose and help to bring other Americans along with our success. We at Kellogg understand the importance of inspiring growth in others, collaborating with others and building teams to solve complex problems.

It was a historic and memorable day to have an opportunity to listen to the President of the United States. Kellogg was the perfect setting for such an important speech on the future of business in America.

Zach Frisbie is a second-year student in Kellogg’s Full-Time Two-Year MBA Program. Prior to Kellogg, he graduated from the United States Military Academy and spent six years in the United States Army, leading soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. He plans on entering a career in general management following graduation.
