How do you think the the McCombs and Anderson interviews went?

I also interviewed at Booth, thought it went well, and was ultimately denied... At the end of the day, it's a bit of a craps shoot

Not too shabby. I had a great interview with Booth. I have an interview today with Darden. Still waiting back on Stanford, Columbia (I applied really late), and MIT.

Fortunate enough to land a scholarship at Owen so I'll be matriculating there this fall. Couldn't be happier with finishing up this process all in round 1.

Very nice. I'm from Nashville, let me know if you have any questions about the city. Place is booming these days.

Good luck at Booth. I had a great interview as well - ultimately got denied. You've got a much better GMAT score than me so you're probably sitting pretty.

I ended up getting four interview invites. I've done three of them, have one next week, and then will patiently wait. Upstate, big congrats on CBS, I just did my interview a few hours and think it went well. Will hopefully be hearing in the next few days....?

Good luck, and I've noticed that to be a trend with CBS. Several of my clients have gotten good news very quickly post-interview, including one a few years ago who got the thumbs-up phone call from AdCom about four hours after his interview...pretty amazing given that the alum interviewer in San Diego had to submit the report to AdCom during that window.

Congrats on the admit Don!! I know you've been grinding like crazy this cycle, so that's got to feel great. Same question: I'm assuming you have it Kellogg then Fuqua in terms of preference, but where are you leaning between Anderson and McCombs? I did a bit of research on each, and both are excellent programs. I guess it will depend on what you want to do with your MBA and your regional placement preference.

Making my final decision by May 1, including for Kellogg. If I don't get off the WL then I'm withdrawing. Fuqua is the front runner but I will be equally happy with Anderson - I absolutely loved it out there.

Thanks, and quite an impressive list you're interviewing with. I did my CBS interview with an adcom over skype and I got the call the next day. Usually i think it takes a little bit longer if you interview with an alumni because i can take a couple of days for them to submit their feedback. Best of luck!

Hey everyone,

I'm a current first-year student at Kellogg, and am running point for the Kellogg Veterans' Association's marketing efforts for the upcoming year. We'd like to extend an invitation to any current or former military to attend Kellogg's Military Preview Day, which is taking place 28th April 2017 in our brand new Global Hub building in Evanston, Illinois. You'll get to attend mock classes, speak to current students and alumni, and have dinner with the KVA. It's a great opportunity to find out more about what awaits you at Kellogg, and to experience Kellogg culture first-hand.

Feel free to PM me with any questions, whether about the event, about Kellogg, or about business school and the application process in general. If you'd like to learn about transitioning from any specific service line to school, or into any particular industry, I'd also be more than happy to connect you with an appropriate contact in the KVA.

More details about our Military Preview Day can be found here: https://apply.kellogg.northwestern.edu/ ... iewDay2017

Hope to see you soon!

EMB,

I have been lurking this site for about a month. Was initially anticipating matriculating with in fall of 2020, but switching my major to a B.A. in Economics with minor in Mandarin and will Graduate in Spring '19. So aiming to matriculate in the Fall of 2019. Currently attending Texas Tech University and will have a GPA in the 3.1-3.4 range most likely.

Currently prepping for the GMAT that I plan to take in Sep-Oct this year. I will work on my weaknesses in the first attempt and will retake again in December, and a 3rd time in Spring '18 with hopes of getting an extremely competitive score.

I am a first generation college student and also a URM(Hispanic).

I spent 6 years active duty enlisted. ETS'd as a Sergeant with many displays of separating from my peers throughout my career. I was planning on getting in touch with "Military To Buisness" consulting later this fall. I will likely purchase the services next spring after I have a good idea of what my GMAT score will be and narrow my list to 3-4 target schools.

What I believe will be my strongest display of military leadership is the fact that I was the first ever PFC to win an honor graduate award at the Fort Hood Warriors Leaders Course.

In February 2009, as a 19 year old PFC, I was selected by my Batallion CSM to attend the upcoming Warriors Leaders Course. The course reserved 16 slots for PFCs to attend the class of 200+ soldiers. I saw this as an opportunity to showcase myself for future consideration in promotions. Not only did I graduate on the Commandants list, Top 20% of overall GPA, I won the Commandants Challenge. The Commandants Challenge award is one of only four honor graduate awards offered in each Warriors Leaders Course at Fort Hood.

I competed against several Sergeants throughout the competition. Despite my lack of experience I was able to outperform my competitors both tactically and technically. After graduating from the Warriors Leaders Course I was promoted to Specialist three days later in a ceremony hosted by my Battalion CSM.

After going through my awards this past weekend, I feel I can put together a strong display of leadership through my 6 years of service. I was planning on submitting information to Military To Business this weekend for a quick consulting.

As stated above, I am about 18 months from submitting my R1 applications so I am working to build as strong of an application as possible. Is there a way I can communicate with you and get some input on how to strengthen my overall application? Thanks! Look forward to working with MTB in the future.
