My application for R2 is complete and ready to submit. But one of my recommender is yet to submit the recommendation. She would be doing it tomorrow. Can I submit my application before the reco is submitted, or should I wait and submit it later?


I am pretty sure you can submit and pay for the application as long as you sent out the two rec requests. Your status page should show a checklist with payment and application checked off but the rec(s) missing.


Do we get any grace period for such case. I mean can that one reco guy submit post 5pm CT deadline? If yes, what is typical grace period?

I dont think we will have that information. As it is the deadline, it will be best if you call them up and ask.

Just called the admission office. They said we can submit app before our recommender submit the recommendation. Also the grace period for recommender is 1 week post the deadline.

Thanks popov . That is a very useful information that people now have at their disposal. But be aware that not all adcoms will start reviewing your application till it is "complete".

All the best with your application.

Meet Kellogg’s newest Zell Fellows [#permalink]

FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: Meet Kellogg’s newest Zell Fellows
Image

The Kellogg School of Management recently named nine students to the 2015-16 cohort of Zell Fellows, a program designed to help students develop market-ready businesses by graduation.

The Zell Fellows Program — formerly known as the Zell Scholars Program — provides students who are either founding a startup or beginning to grow their fledging ventures more than $25,000 per student for a variety of business expenses. The program also offers leadership coaching and mentoring from seasoned entrepreneurs who have navigated the pitfalls awaiting any new business.

It’s an application-only, two-quarter program funded by Equity Group Investments LLC Chairman Sam Zell. Now in its third year, the Zell Fellows program has already provided executive support to 19 fellows who are running or have founded businesses.

While helping students launch or grow businesses is integral to the program, the crux of the fellowship is to transform students into strong entrepreneurs, said David Schonthal ’09, program director and clinical assistant professor of innovation and entrepreneurship.

“It’s really about the growth of a student,” Schonthal says. “The business is the medium, but ultimately we want to see people become great entrepreneurs now or at some point in the future.”

Meet this year’s Zell Fellows and learn about their businesses

Hello!! I am beyond ready to submit my Kellogg application, the only thing that bothers me is that I don´t have mi AWA score yet, as I took my last GMAT on December 28...so I need your opinions, do you think I should use the additional essay to explain this detail? Kellogg would get mi official score report on this days anyway.

Thank you and good luck to everyone!!


You will have to send them the official transcript or record anyway, and the website says you can take the GMAT up to the same date of the submission date.

Good luck!

Are the video essay deadlines written explicitly anywhere? I Submitted my written app in R2, but I can't find this info anywhere.
EDIT: Its written on the website "1 week after round deadline". but not explicit enough ... date and time exact.

Even the email they send post submission says that only, without mentioning date explicitly.

You will have 1 week from the application submission deadline to complete your video essay

I would recommend to finish the video essay before the week's deadline. Additionally, keep in mind that the deadline time for applications was 5 PM CT on the deadline day (per http://www.kellogg.northwestern.edu/pro ... lines.aspx). So I would believe that they will follow the same for the video essay as well.

FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: Faculty podcast: Get the most from new team members

From Kellogg Insight

Most people understand the importance of a good first impression. So on our first day with a new company, we arrive early. Maybe we overdress. We know that starting out strong will make it easier to succeed in the long run.

But when it comes to achieving success, the onus is not only on the recent hire. Companies need to set the stage for their employees to hit the ground running.

In this month’s Insight In Person podcast, you will hear from Kellogg’s U.S. Army Chief of Staff Senior Fellow about how the Army handles a high rate of transition on a personal level. Later, a Kellogg School lecturer and entrepreneur looks at onboarding in younger, leaner organizations — like startups — that are experiencing explosive growth.

Listen to this month’s faculty podcast

You would have selected off campus or on campus in your application before you submitted it. If you opted for off-campus option, you will be sent an email providing you the details about the alumnus/na with whom you have been matched with. If you selected on campus option, you should have seen a dialog box to select a date for interview. Either way, you must have selected one of the 2 options.

Don't worry about this for now, they will use your unofficial numbers for now and if admitted will ask for the official scores if they don't already receive in advance of this

Hello All,

Did anyone happen to complete the video essays part of application. Please share how was the experience and any useful do's and dont's.

What were the questions like and is the second question exactly whats mentioned in FAQs of admission site "What path are you interested in pursuing, how will you get there, and why is this program right for you?" or a variation of that.

Wish you all best of luck for R2.

I was a bit shaky and slow while responding to the unknown video question. But I ensured that I was 1) Honest, and 2) Logical in my answer. And as it turns out, I had done well (got Admitted)!
So you don't necessarily have to be fluent like the US Presidential Candidates. Just be yourself, be human...Taking a 2 second pause in between shows that you are thinking before speaking.. So in the words of Google CEO Sundar Pichai - you need to 'respond' not 'react' !! :)

Hope this helps!

Thank you generalist for sharing your experience with all of us.
Can you confirm if the second question is what they have mentioned or a different version. Also, can you share what was your other question if you are OK.

Thanks.
