On fridays I recommend trying to get in on Hennessey's marketing class. Its a core, its an interesting class and is typically interactive. The second best option would be one of the business strategy cores. Honestly, I dont think sitting in on quant classes would be all that interesting for someone just visiting.

This friday happens to be the marketing challenge TG. Its one of the highlight TGs of the year so you will get a to see some interesting stuff going on. It should run from 5 to 7ish if you are staying in town and dont have to fly out.

I'd second Hennessey's marketing class. I sat in on that class when I visited and enjoyed it (although I was kinda of nervous prepping for my interview ). An interesting case on Tivo when I was in.

What time is Hennessey's class? I see that there are classes at 8:30, 10:30, 1:30, and 3:30. I'm trying to schedule my day so I could go on the campus tour, have lunch with students, and visit at least one class.

Hey river,

I am coming to the Kellogg campus for my interview on Tuesday, Nov 18th. My interview is scheduled at noon and I wanted to visit a class after the interview. Are there any classes you recommend?

Also, I'd love to meet up and chat with you. Let me know if you would have any time available.

Hennessy has class at 8:30 and 10:30. I think the organized lunches are only offered on Monday's but you can definitely find some students to sit with since its always packed and people are very friendly here.

Tuesdays are the same as friday classwise. Unfortunately Hennessy is in the morning only. The pickings for afternoon classes are pretty thin, some decision science (similar to stats) and accounting core classes. There are strategy classes but they are the weakest professor which might actually be good since if you like it then you can realize that other professors here are even better.. I would suggest picking a strategy or organization class (MORS) they generally are going to be much more interactive. I dont know if they allow classes outside the core but there might be more interesting options. Most schools I visited last year only allow students to sit in on 1st year core classes.

As for class visits, definitely try to get in touch with 2nd years to get into non-core classes (or first years after the new year). They're very different feel and you'll get better exposure of the full Kellogg experience.

I ended up waiving out of 3 core classes, so I'm actually taking an elective this quarter and will be taking all electives (except FIN I) next quarter. While most students aren't waiving out of more than one or two core classes, if you do waive, you get the opportunity to take a lot more electives in your first year, so it is useful to check in on a non-core class.

At Kellogg, the professors are definitely open to allowing perspectives in most classes. Just let the professor know that you want to sit in before class or arrive with a 2nd year (I did both when I visited Kellogg for interviews last year).

So I had my Kellogg interview with an alum yesterday and I think it went pretty well. It lasted a little over an hour. Here are all the questions I can remember:

1. Walk me through your experience/why you chose the positions you did

2. We work in teams many times, but tell me about a situation that i influenced the business at a more strategic level vs. project team level

3. what would be the one elevator story you tell about your experience

4. How would you deal with conflict in teams/if someone wasn't pulling their weight

5. If you were my manager and i was missing deadlines, how would i deal with the situation

6. What clubs would you participate in at kellogg

7. Why mba/why kellogg/ST & LT goals

8. Diversity is important, so tell me something that is unique about you/people would remember about you, from either personally or professionally.
I thought this question was hard because at it first was phrased as diversity, and then sort of phrased at the end as more of a unique/fun fact about yourself. Hopefully I answered it ok.

Then I had an opportunity to ask him some questions. I think it went ok because he encouraged me to apply to the MMM program because "I am such a good fit for Kellogg and MMM".

I had my JD/MBA interview a couple of weeks ago with an alum. The questions that they asked were basically identical to the ones listed above except that he asked a "Why a JD/MBA?" question.

Should I be worried that my status on the application website still says "submitted", and that I haven't recieved any "Please retain..." email from the admissions since my application? Anyone else in the same boat?

Good luck, it should be a pretty smooth, easy experience as with most Kellogg interviews.
