The poster above has answered your question very well. But just to add to what has already been mentioned, the 1st question will be from a list of 10 practice questions that you see on the video essay portal. For the second question, it will be the standard Why Kellogg, ST/LT goals, what do you hope to achieve at Kellogg and other possible variations of the same question.

This is the reason why the 2nd question is being called "standard" or "normal".

Hello Engr2012,

I had a quick question, what is the source of this information "the 1st question will be from a list of 10 practice questions that you see on the video essay portal". I was of the opininion 1st question would be a random icebreaker not necessarily 1 of the 10 practice questions.

Thanks

Gave my Video Essay today,

For my first question I was asked " If you had an extra day in the week what would you do with it and why?" I think I handled that one pretty well. The second one was standard however right at the end I panicked a tad and ended up saying " That is why I will see you in the Fall of 2016" , instead of what I had practiced ending with which was " That is why I am excited to be a part of the class which you will see in the Fall of 2016"; I hope they don't take off too many points because of that.

Per http://www.kellogg.northwestern.edu/pro ... ocess.aspx although it only mentions that you can practice on 1 of the 10 practice questions. My 1st video question was from that list. Hence my response. You are correct that first question will be an ice breaker but from what I have seen people reporting on GC, most of them got questions from that list. Feel free to browse through this thread to see what did people get for their 1st question.

All the best.

That is absolutely in line with their instructions that video essay is due 1 week after the admission deadline. Hopefully people will now have a post to refer back to.

Per the Kellogg Application instructions, the second questions will be, literally, “What path are you interested in pursuing, how will you get there, and why is this program right for you?”

Thanks!! I was wondering if they could change the question a bit, for example : Why you are a great fit for Kellogg? But I guess they will just ask the question you mentioned.

Thanks a lot!

At least for Round 1, "What path are you interested in pursuing, how will you get there, and why is this program right for you?” is literally what they asked (as they stated they would) for the second video essay question.

Done with my video essays. Such a relief.. phew!

I think I did not do well on the first one. It was a generic answer, was not able to bring a key take away suited to Kellogg's culture. Even faltered for 2 secs midway. I hope it does not result in a ding.

My question was: What is your best vacation and why?

The second one was the usual and went off fine.

All the best everyone. My advice - be spontaneous and calm, it will be done in no time.

So, the other question will only come from the fixed list of 10 practice question?

I faced an issue while completing my video essays. My first question was, "What was your aim in life when you were a child?". While I was answering the question, a message popped up midway asking me to refresh the browser (it said it would revert to where I started from). I did that and was back to the home screen. And, when I clicked on Question 1, a different prompt popped up this time - "What is a risk you took and what did you learn?" The platform went smoothly after that, but I'm not sure what the repercussions could be. :/
P.S.: I can't possibly have an internet connectivity issue. I completed the essays from office and have never seen an internet connectivity issue in the last 2.5 years I worked there. MBB can't get that wrong, for sure.

One question : Is there a list of 10 questions for everybody from which one gets the random question (apart from the standard why kellogg question)?

Just want to share my experience. I have done many practice questions, but ended up receiving a different one. My question was more and less like this: "Have you ever collected things, what it was and why?

Does anyone know when does Kellogg starts sending interview invites for R2 non-US applicants. I read somewhere that they start reading the application only after the interview.

Non-US applicant here. Thailand. Received interview invite this morning and just scheduled my interview. I think the invite will come when they are able to match interviewer for you. Good luck!

Done with the video interviews....
First question was different from the practice question. It was something like "most interesting person you have met and why they are interesting?". I felt I did good on this.

Second question was the pathway and why Kellogg question. I did not do a great job here. Fumbled a lot and talked about why Kellog for only 10 seconds as I was running out of time.

I hope they do not give a lot of weight to these essays or my Kellogg dreams are over.
