Application Tips Shared by Kelley 1st Year

Few things which I did during my application process (and I feel can be helpful to others) are
1. Pair up with someone who is also applying this year - You can talk to him about various things in the application, you can push each other to meet the deadlines, you can talk each other out of frustration, and can often share ideas. I paired with abhimahna and we became buddies by the end of the application process.
2. Be authentic!!! I know it's cliche. But I can definitely say that a couple of my stories worked because they were mine and it had elements in it that represented my personality (and not someone else's).
3. Talk to people at Kelley (or any other schools you are applying) and you would know a great deal which you can't find online. Again cliche but I must have spoken to at least 3-5 people from each school that I applied. That's what helps you differentiate your "Why Kelley" answer from the rest of the herd.

If you ignore a current slide in 2019 ranking, Kelley has maintained its position between T20 and T23 ranks since 2008 so we can't say it's continuously sliding. It's worth watching though whether Kelley rebounds in next ranking after the recent big slide.

Trust me its a great feeling to be here at Kelley. I would comment more on this once I spend more time here but for now, I can say a couple of things :
1. The Adcom did a great job in assembling a class with great diversity. Just to give you a sneak peek, in my team of 5 people, we have an ex-Marine, a part-time snowboarding coach, an actor who also worked as an IT consultant, and a Brand Manager at a top Consumer goods company.
2. Inspite of this diversity there is one common theme in the entire class (and every member of Kelley - faculties, coaches, admins, etc) and that is the pride that they take in helping each other.


Few things which I did during my application process (and I feel can be helpful to others) are
1. Pair up with someone who is also applying this year - You can talk to him about various things in the application, you can push each other to meet the deadlines, you can talk each other out of frustration, and can often share ideas. I paired with abhimahna and we became buddies by the end of the application process.

I hope this helps.

Hi Guys,

So I am a current student at Kelley 2020 batch.

Feel free to reach out to me for any queries regarding the school/process at gbhowmik@iu.edu.

A little about me : I have been working in Reliance Jio for the past 6 years in Mumbai , India as a Project Manager before joining Kelley in 2018. I applied to only 2 schools - ISB and Kelley (one Indian and one US school) - both in first round. I made my decision pretty early in December 2017 without applying anywhere else in second round.

I really love the college till now. Great professors who are always holding office hours to help you more outside classes.
No other schools in US had 55 companies visiting their campus in the first week of school !

More on those lines later.

For now, good luck with GMAT and applications.

Happy to help,
Goldy Bhowmik

Hey there,

It is nice to see you reaching out to current applicants. How is the community at Kelley like? The batch size is pretty small compared to other schools. Is that an advantage?

Hi,

I feel small batch size is definitely an advantage and one of the primary reasons for my interest in Kelley in the first place.
Batch size of 185 is small enough for individual attention and large enough to make it extremely diverse - blends a perfect match!
By individual attention , I mean each of 185 students is mapped to a career coach faculty and is also assigned a dedicated peer coach (second year) to help you in every possible way right from adjusting yourself to the new culture to your job search objectives.
I wonder how difficult it would be to organise the same for a batch of 700+ !

Hope this helps.

Thanks,
Goldy.

I guess early is when you decided to apply to Kelley the earliest. It's similar to early round many colleges have.

I'm not entirely sure though
