How are you planning on approaching this? Was hoping to get money from another school to do the same with Kellogg


Is this an option? Can you go to Kellogg with other scholarship offers with a reasonable expectation that they might increase their offer?



Is this possible to negotiate with the school that are lower in ranking such as UCLA?

Yes - I had an admit get an extra $10K from Kellogg after Booth matched their offer. He was pretty exceptional, but also, it was round 3, so still shocking.

Guys,

I had added a recommender for Kellogg at the start of Dec'16. He wanted to fill it up, and had started filling the recommendation as well, but in the middle, he had some family emergency, due to which he said he may not be able to devote time.

I then canceled the recommender and added a new recommender. However, the new recommender has not received any link, despite me sending multiple reminders.

I have sent an email to Kellogg - but have not got a reply. I tried calling them but they said they are closed.

I want to know if I can start a new application and fill in the items, with a newer email ID. What I want to know is this - GMAC has sent the test scores to Kellogg already, and in the current application, the test scores come as verified.

If I fill in with a newer email ID, and fill in my GMAT score, will there be a discrepancy? Does the university only verify that I gave an exam on that day, or will they not accept my scores?

Additionally, I can add the personal email ID of the personal recommender, but will this be seen in a bad light?

Thanks,
sad_general

Hi,

I have one question to those who already applied, about the procedure to schedule for on-campus interview. I'm about to submit my application, and I'm fro South America, I'll be at Chicago for three days for work. I want to schedule in those days if possible. I just want to know what happens if I select on-compus interview, and then, when I have to schedule, there are no longer appointments available on the dates available. Would I be able to change my interview preference back to off-campus???

I would not rely on advice from other applicants on this message board for this one as no one but the Kellogg adcom will know the answer for sure. I would recommend emailing them or calling them to ask what you should do (and tell them the dates you will be in Chicago) before you submit. You have a little time so I would advise contacting them today as I'm sure they're pretty swamped.

Good luck!

As I mentioned above, you should call the adcom about your specific situation. I would not stake anything on replies/advice from a message board for something like this.

Good luck!

Hey guys,

quick question: I have submitted my application and received an confirmation email. According to the mail, a link for the video essay will appear on my applicant page after paying the application fee. On the Kelloggg website on the other hand, it is mentioned that applicants will get a detailed mail regarding the video essay once they have paid the fess. In my case, the link has appeared, but I didn't get a mail. Is that correct or would you write a quick mail to the admissions office.
Furthermore, I am curious if I have to finish the video essay by the deadline (tomorrow) or if I have more some more days to finish it.

Your help is appreciated.
Thanks,
Mathias

Hi,
I have 2 questions. It would be great if someone can help me.

1. My recommender is traveling and will be able to submit R2 recommendation only by 5th Jan. If my application online is submitted before the deadline and my recommendation is submitted one day after the deadline, will the R2 application be pushed to R3?

2. Do the video essay questions also need to be submitted before 4th Jan (5pm CST)? Or they can be submitted within one week after the online application. (Let's say I submit the application on 4th Jan and respond to video essays by 10th Jan)

Usually, yes. You would be pushed to Round 3. There are deadlines for a reason. If I were you I would call the Kellogg adcom immediately and see what your options are. They may say that if YOUR materials are all in by the deadline that there is a short window for recommenders to submit afterward, but I have DEFINITELY SEEN clients be pushed to round 3 in situations like this with other top programs, so be prepared. You do NOT want to find yourself in Round 3. Do everything you can to get/help your recommender to submit before the deadline.

I am pretty sure you have until the 10th to submit the video responses.

Good luck!

I submitted my R2 application yesterday, and did the video questions after a few hours of practice.

My questions (paraphrased):
1) What would you like to try? (I named an outdoor activity)
2) What path are you interested in pursuing, how will you get there, and why is this program right for you? (same for everyone)
3) Tell us about a time where things didn't go according to plan, and how you responded.

Hey! You have seven days following the application deadline to complete your video essays for Kellogg (although I'd advise you to get them out of the way as early as possible). You can head to the video essay portal directly using the link on your application status page once you've paid the application fee. All the best!

Thanks Erika for your suggestion. I called the admissions office to explain my situation. The person who responded the call was quite helpful and was ready to consider my case. Still, to be 100% sure, I am asking my recommender to submit at the earliest by 4th.

I received an email from Kellogg a few weeks back with this info and some other FAQs:

My recommender has not received the recommendation link I sent them.
Some employer email addresses may be firewalled due to security settings. We can send your recommender the link to complete your recommendation administratively - please email us with this request. All recommendations are due within 1 week of the application deadline on January 11.

Did they tell you something different when you called?
