Scott,
Have you taken a Microeconomic class at Kellogg? If so, what book are you using? Who is the author of the book?

Thanks

Yup, I took MECN 430, which is the intro micro course. It was taught by David Besanko (although there are a few other profs who also teach it), and we used his book. It's called Microeconomics: An Integrated Approach, and is by Besanko and Braeutigam (the publisher is Wiley). The book is actually the abridged version. I give credit to Besanko for admitting that we didn't need to buy the whole, original book! BTW, if you're headed to Kellogg, Besanko is an awesome prof. A very caring person. I highly recommend taking him for econ.

Scott,
Thanks for your reply. How did you find Microeconomics? When did you start at Kellogg? I am still working on a higher gmat score just to get in to Kellogg. Any advice?

Thanks

Kath

I graduated from Kellogg just a month ago. A lot of people at Kellogg told me to waive the micro class if I could (I may have been able to), saying that it was dull, but I actually thought it was one of the better classes that I took at Kellogg. Besanko, who's a tremendous teacher, obviously had a lot to do with that. But I also enjoyed it a lot in retrospect because it was such a fundamental building block of many of the other courses I took, many of which were dedicated to strategy. I had taken micro in undergrad and thought, "Yeah, yeah, supply meets demand, Pareto efficiency, blah blah blah," but there was a lot of more higher-level thinking stuff that I just didn't get (or maybe just didn't appreciate) the first time around. Anyway, I definitely recommend taking it, even if you can waive out of it.

Good luck! Don't worry too much about the GMAT. I mean, obviously you you want to do well, but no one at the top business schools is remarkable because of his or her GMAT score alone.

Scott,

Thanks for your reply. Congrats for finishing at Kellogg. I would love to graduate from Kellogg as well. Did you have a mentor from Kellogg? I am aiming for winter 2005 admissions for the TMProgram. As of this point, I am still reviewing for the gmat. Hopefully, I will be done by August or September 2004.

Wish me all the luck!

Kath

Do you mean, did I have a Kellogg alum as a mentor during the applicatoin process? I sort of did. A guy I used to work with was a Kellogg alum, but he had been through the EMP (Executive Masters, for people with a good deal of experience), so his experiences were very different from what I experienced at Kellogg. Still, I got a recommendation from him, which may have helped a little.

Good luck to you. The TMP program seems to be a lot easier to get into than the full-time program (on a pure numbers basis), so you should have a good shot.
