Hi all - Just wanted to say I will be available for questions on this forum once Kellogg releases its application. Since it has confirmed its Round 1 deadline of September 19, I'm hoping the full application will be available soon and we can see if they decided to change either of their essays, as Wharton and CBS have this year.

I will have advice on the video essay component of the application as well, assuming they keep that in. (I think they will...)

My two cents are that the biggest mistakes I see people make with these essays are:

1) For #1: They forget to address the final question about challenges and learnings. I personally think at least 1/3 up to 1/2 of the response should be dedicated to that question and the rest the setup of the situation and what you did to meet the challenges and create lasting value.

2) For #2: People don't realize this is secretly partially a "career essay" and a "Why Kellogg" essay. You can either use one example to first talk about specific ways you've grown in the past, or summarize the ways you've grown across your career to date with mini-examples from different projects/experiences. Then you need to transition to what you want to do going forward in your career and SPECIFICALLY how Kellogg will help you achieve those goals. You need to say the precise ways you'll grow from taking, say, Class X, or being a part of Club Y, etc.

But remember you'll also be addressing your career goals and Why Kellogg in the video essays if my memory serves, so you won't want to repeat the EXACT same thing you said in Essay #2.

Hope this helps and best of luck to all!

Hello,

I apologize for my ignorance but when the date says "On-Campus Interviews Must be Scheduled by", are are these the applicant initiated interviews or these are interview invites sent by Admissions committee?

Thank you!

Everyone applying for Kellogg does an interview. They do not "invite" anyone to interview. So if you are going to travel to campus for an interview you must ensure you've scheduled it in their system by the date they state.

Otherwise you indicate what city you're in and they will match you with a local alum. If they can't do that they will either waive the interview requirement or do a Skype interview with you.

Hope that helps!
