I requested to be interviewed in a fairly rural part of the country. As I don't want to risk the chance of having the interview waived, should I proactively contact the admissions office and let them know I would be willing to be interviewed in the nearest large city? Or is this something that they should be contacting me about if they are interested in application?


How far are you from the nearest "large city"? I think they assume you are willing to drive a couple of hours for the interview. If you are 2 hours away from a big city, I think they'll figure it out, but if you are really far away from a large city I would contact admissions and let them know you're willing to travel.

I'm in Orlando, and they set me up with an alum in Tampa (an hour and a half away).


I'm approximately 4 hours from the nearest large city (Boston), however I'm very much willing to drive there or fly to another location to take the interview in person. I'll reach out to admissions and let them know.

Thanks.

Sorry for the delay in posting!

I think it went well, but let's be honest we'll never actually know until we have that acceptance in our hands. It was very conversational, which I like.

Here are the questions I was asked. Nothing out of the ordinary.

(1) Tell me about yourself
(2) Why I attended my school
(3) Why do I want to go into my indsutry
(4) Why Kellogg
(5) What will I contribute to the class
(6) Any concerns I have about business school, specifically Kellogg

Then we started talking generally about the alumni network and her experience at Kellogg.


Good luck to everyone else!

Alumni Spotlight: Jennifer Beall ’10  [#permalink]

FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: Alumni Spotlight: Jennifer Beall ’10
Image
Creating a stroller-cleaning business was hardly a lifelong goal for Jennifer Beall ’10, owner of the expanding startup CleanBeeBaby.

But things have worked out for Beall and CleanBeeBaby, which earlier this year was named Social Finance, Inc. (SOFI) Entrepreneur Program “Startup of the Year.

“I never thought I’d grow up to clean baby poop,” jokes Beall, a former management consultant and Austin, Texas native who once aspired to entrepreneurial dreams more akin to those of computer legend Michael Dell.

But fate intervened. At Kellogg, Beall began searching for viable ideas to start a company that could help meet the growing demand for work-life balance, a priority among fellow Generation Y consumers.

It wasn’t until she interned for Kellogg alum Mary Liz Lehman ’06, owner of the Perchance upscale clothing boutiques in Chicago, that Beall spotted the need and began to incubate her idea.

“One of the customers was talking about how the baby had thrown up in the car seat and she couldn’t get the smell out and she couldn’t find anyone to clean it,” says Beall, 29. “I thought, hmmm.”

Today the Los Angeles-based CleanBeeBaby is going strong. The company, which now is also available to customers in the New York City area, is a mobile, eco-friendly cleaning service for car seats, strollers and more. Customers can schedule an in-house appointment or can go to one of CleanBeeBaby’s scheduled cleaning events at L.A.- or NYC-area stores.

“We literally set up right in front of the door in the parking lot or on the sidewalk,” Beall says. “We steam-clean everything right there, and then at the end of the day, we clean up our mess.”

The company now also takes shipments to clean and repair baby gear from anywhere in the world.

Launched in March 2011, CleanBeeBaby was cash-flow positive within four months.

“Car seats and strollers aren’t going away,” Jennifer Beall says.

To get there, Beall leveraged every available Kellogg resource. She refined her business plan in Clinical Professor James Shein’s Entrepreneurship and New Venture Formulation class, immersed herself in Assistant Professor Yael Hochberg’s Venture Lab and learned valuable lessons about keeping customers happy in Lecturer Richard Honack’s Services Marketing and Management course.

She ate, slept and breathed her idea, winning the prestigious Kellogg Cup in 2010, a business plan competition that gave her the street cred to raise more than her targeted $50,000 in startup funding.

“Car seats and strollers aren’t going away,” Beall says, part of her line of defense against naysayers who criticized her concept for being too niche.

Not a mom yet herself, she learned everything she could about the mommy set, joining blogs and listserv groups, subscribing to Working Mother magazine and generally immersing herself in all things parental. She even spent a week in Kankakee, Ill., to receive safety training at a police station.

She also picked the brain of every small business guru who visited the Kellogg campus. She pushed for contacts in the alumni network to land informational interviews with key sources such as Target’s senior buyer of baby products.

Shein cites this tenacity as central to Beall’s progress.

“I don’t think anything is going to stand in Jen’s way,” he says. “Execution and implementation are what set successful entrepreneurs apart from anyone else.”

True to her reputation, Beall isn’t resting on her laurels. She is pushing ahead with plans to franchise the business and form strategic partnerships, including a pending deal with Bugaboo Strollers to create their authorized service program.

“I’m constantly putting myself out there,” she says. “I’m persistent.”
