Does anybody knows what's the difference in terms of the number of electives that you can take between kellogg's 2y and MMM programs??


This is a very broad question that will be guided by what you want to achieve with either of those 2 programs. Go to their respective websites or better still shoot an email to the adcom and see what they reply. There are many different pathways and majors that you can pursue with either of those programs.

If you haven't received your alumni interview invite by now is it safe to assume that your interview will be waived prior to application review?

Hey guys

How important are these vedio essays? I think I did quite well on the actual alumni interview but I'm fretting over the video essays cause I totally screwed them up. Any ideas as to how important these videos are to final decision?

I sent a thank you note after my on-campus interview with admissions - haven't received any kind of reply yet. Is this a bad sign or just a sign of me overthinking?

My interviewer has moved my interview, making it 4 weeks from when I for the invite. Anyone know if this is an issue? Is there a time by when I need to have the interview done?



I don't think it'll matter as long as the delay is due to busy schedule.

Empowering future business leaders at Women’s Preview Day 2016 [#permalink]

FROM Kellogg MBA Blog: Empowering future business leaders at Women’s Preview Day 2016
https://kelloggmbastudents.files.wordpress.com/2016/10/screenshot-2016-10-25-17-04-41.png?w=627

By Jessica Pawlarczyk

What does the Kellogg MBA experience look like for women?

What type of personal and professional support does Kellogg offer its female students?

How does Kellogg prepare women to become successful business leaders?

Close to 200 prospective students explored these crucial questions during Women’s Preview Day, an admissions event that gives women an inside look at the Kellogg MBA experience. This all-day event is co-hosted by the Kellogg Women’s Business Association (WBA), one of the largest and most active organizations on campus.

“With so many great MBA programs to choose from, I hope that Women’s Preview Day provides our attendees with the information they need to make the right decision about which school to attend,” says Jessica Gutierrez, VP of prospective outreach for the Kellogg WBA. “Many of our attendees are in the process of applying to MBA programs, so I hope this event is an accurate representation of what Kellogg is all about, and a big part of that is Kellogg’s supportive culture for women.”

During the event, prospective students had the opportunity to attend mock classes, receive career coaching from the Career Management Center, interact with current students and learn more about the admissions process.

One of the event highlights was an immersive classroom experience with Professor Brooke Vuckovic, who discussed the relationship between productive listening and successful leadership. Working in small groups, prospective students explored the benefits of mindful listening and identified personal listening weaknesses. Professor Vuckovic then shared helpful tools to improve the overall listening experience, including two acronyms: WAIT (Why Am I Talking?) and VIVID (Vent, Inform, Validate, Ideate, Direction).

She wrapped up her presentation by providing advice on boosting executive presence and explaining how a Kellogg MBA can strengthen women’s professional networks.

Kellogg expands female students’ professional networks through a variety of unique events, including:

  • Women’s Leadership Seminar – A five-week workshop full of lectures, alumni panels and guest speakers that discuss negotiation, creating a personal narrative, building a personal network and more.
  • Women’s Leadership Workshop – A conference that brings together high-potential women to build a foundation of leadership skills that will advance their personal and professional goals
  • Careers Uncorked – A WBA event that gives first-year women the opportunity to network with prestigious companies in an intimate setting
  • Alumni Dinners – Industry-specific networking dinners that connects current students with successful female alumnae
The day closed with inspiring remarks from Dean Sally Blount ’92, who shared her personal and professional leadership story and encouraged attendees to focus on choice.

“Choice matters 100 percent of the time,” she said.

She went on to explain that Kellogg is the accelerating vehicle – and ideal choice – for aspiring female business leaders who want to make a positive impact on the world.

“The Kellogg MBA will help you create lasting value,” she said. “How are you going to make a difference with your lives?”

Most schools will not reply to thank-you notes (but it is GREAT that you sent one). They don't want to give people false hope. Usually alums don't respond, either (for other programs). So absolutely nothing to worry about here -- they are busy with other stuff!

Best of luck to you!

I sent my alum interviewer a thank you email and I also never heard back, so it may be part of the protocol (as Erika mentioned above).

I did hear back from my interviewer last year (and ended up on a waitlist). This year my interviewer replied too. So i dont think it matters. Maybe he/she is just extremely busy.

Mine replied, but very curtly. I'm hoping it's because he was extremely busy and not due to lack of enthusiasm in my candidacy...

I don't think you can really trend that out. It's also personal style, I think I'd reply if I were an interviewer, but not everyone is like that. Wouldn't read into it either way.

Originally, it was an alum interview but they mismatched my location and then had to reschedule it to a Skype Interview because I had to travel overseas for work

I got an email about the interview waiver for my off-campus interview.
I understand that the policy is they don't allow for the location change, but is it worthwhile to email the admissions team about asking for an on campus interview?
