I think they identify you by your last name and DOB rather than email address.

How did the video essay go man?

It went well man. Kellogg questions were more philosophical :) so I ended up being more subjective in answering. Overall if you have practised for Yale, Kellogg should be no different. Just go for it! :)

My gnat score report is also shown as "awaiting". I send them an email but the answer could take 3 days. I hope it goes well. :(

Spoke to an adcom today and she confirmed that Kellogg doesn't need official scores sent to them until after admission.

But did you sent your official scores? I sent them several months ago, and I still have an "awaiting" status on my application status website.
Are they loading the scores after they review your app?

Thanks!

Yes, I sent them in May and I even got the confirmation from GMAC at that time. I said that in my email and they said that it could take time but they will track it down.

Does anyone know exactly how much the Video Essay is weighed in the grand scheme of things? I ask because I didn't do well on it at all (was caught off guard by the first question). Thanks!

I selected my functional area as 'consulting' instead of 'strategy consulting'. Even though my goals clearly mention strategy consulting. What should I do. Should I reach out to the admission committee? :( Suggestions please!!

Take a chill pill. Relax. The difference between those two options is very obscure. Trust me. I work in (strategy) consulting.

Most people outside of consulting have no idea anyway. They just mindlessly repeat something they've heard about "strategy" being the sexy part of consulting.

Also, regardless of definitions, it's impossible to focus exclusively on "strategy" post MBA. At any major consultancy (McKinsey, BCG, Bain, Deloitte, etc.) you will come in as a generalist, which means that you will have to work across different practice areas. As a first year associate, there's no way you can say "I only want to work on "strategy" projects and I will turn down other types of projects." Doesn't work like that.

Sorry for the rant.

I made even a bigger blunder! :( In the extracurricular activities section. I entered the city and state wrong for one of the activities!

Would it help to write to the Ad Com and clear this?

Are you referring to the question "describe your plans for the future and how Kellogg will help you on that journey?"

Hmmm...I do know for a fact that the second questions is the same for everyone (what path do you want to take, how, why...).

I was under the impression that the first question was a random ice breaker question. I did all the practice problems, but the question that I got was not similar to any of them.

Tips for applying to Kellogg – Part 4 [#permalink]

FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: Tips for applying to Kellogg – Part 4
Applying to business school is a commitment. You will devote hours to test prep, drafting and redrafting essays, practicing for interviews, perusing websites and visiting campuses.

We get lots of questions about how applicants can make their application stand out, so this week, we are sharing suggestions on how you can help distinguish yourself and express why Kellogg is the right school for you.

TODAY’S TOPIC: VIDEO ESSAYS https://kelloggmbastudents.files.wordpress.com/2016/07/real.jpg?w=627


ADDITIONAL TOPICS: Test scores, essays, letters of recommendation

Don’t stress too much about the video essay. It’s meant to be personal and authentic. If you’ve ever used Skype or Facetime, it will feel familiar and easy.

We will start by asking you one icebreaker question with no “right answer” to help us get to know you.

Want an example? Here’s one: If you could live anywhere in the world for a year, where would it be and why? See, not so hard.

The second question will be about Kellogg.  And to make this even less mysterious, we are going to give you the question.  Seriously. Here it is: What path are you interested in pursuing, how will you get there and why is this program right for you?

The third question will be more of an interview type question. Here is an example of the type of question you will be asked: Tell me about a time you were not going to be able to meet a deadline. How did you handle the situation? What was the outcome?

Overall, the video essay gives the Admissions committee the opportunity to “meet you” personally beyond your written application, and it gives you the chance to showcase your communication skills, personality and interest in Kellogg in a way that written essays and test scores simply can’t.

For more information about our video essays, please visit our website. You can also take a look at this recent Poets & Quants story with Kate Smith, Assistant Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid.

Melissa Rapp is the Director of Admissions for the Full-Time MBA and MS in Management Studies Programs. Melissa joined the Evanston Admissions team in January 2016 and was previously the Director of Admissions for the Evening & Weekend MBA Program located on Kellogg’s Chicago campus. She has over 15 years of higher education and admissions experience.
