Good luck everyone! Can't believe it's been over a year since I started my applications. One of the most stressful, yet rewarding, years of my life.

Excited to apply to Kellogg! The culture has been great so far! Wonder when the app will go up so I can book my tickets for a "real" visit and interview!

This was the response I received from admissions on July 11th regarding the essay prompts:

"Thank you for your interest in the Kellogg School of Management. Our 2015 application will be available next month and the essay questions will be available within the application. "

R1-er,

Changes to the essays and video essays have been released to P&Q:

https://poetsandquants.com/2014/07/21/ke ... ten-essay/

The two new essays are:

1. Resilience. Perseverance. Grit. Call it what you will…. Challenges can build character. Describe a challenging experience you’ve had. How were you tested? What did you learn? (450 words)

2. Leadership requires an ability to collaborate with and motivate others. Describe a professional experience that required you to influence people. What did this experience teach you about working with others, and how will it make you a better leader? (450 words)

The essays are pretty much the same as last year (they are changed slightly, but I feel like I could've definitely used last years essays for these prompts), with the "Why Kellogg" essay now being in video form instead of written essay.

REALLY excited for these prompts... I'm starting to work on them now.
