Hello everyone. In January, Kellogg announced that they'd be opening up their MBA admissions for college applicants looking to enroll in 2 to 5 years. I came across this like last week, and I've been scrambling to collect GMAT materials and get ready for another dreaded standardized test. I wanted to start the discussion since it doesn't look like an open topic has been made yet. Feel free to post your backgrounds and stats--I would love to learn about all the other applicants :)

Really? I wonder why they would want to lock up applicants so early. Strange times.

I’m guessing it’s because applications were down last year and they want to bump up the numbers again. Now with this pandemic here, even fewer people would be willing to spend time applying for this, so the promise of an early admission incentivizes people to apply for the program.

Do you think this mean you expect their acceptance rate will go up for the next few classes?

Deferred programs like Kellogg's are a huge trend among all of the top programs, as outlined in this blog post: https://vantagepointmba.com/2020/01/27/ ... e-for-you/.

My view is that schools want to lock up great candidates early and then allow them flexibility to follow their passions in between undergrad and business school without stressing over the impact a certain job, etc will have on their profile. As with many things, the top programs tend to follow each other's lead when it comes to new offerings like this :)

pnandi3 I responded to your profile eval separately - good luck :)

Hey guys, I'm a holder of a 3-year undergraduate degree from India. I'm graduating this year, and have no work experience.

I have offers from Warwick and IE for their MSc Finance programs.

Short-term/Post MSc goal: To break into M&A at a BB/EB in India, Singapore or the UK (in that order of priority) after the MSc.

Long-term goal: To use my M&A experience to move into a healthcare-focused private equity fund


Questions:

1) Which school do you think has a better reputation in India, Singapore or the UK (again in that order of priority) for IB?

2) I'm probably going to apply to a deferred MBA program to make the switch to private equity later in my career. I know that an applicant's University's reputation plays an important role in the admissions process. Will the MBA programs (Booth, CBS, Wharton, etc.) prefer Warwick or IE?



Thanks for your time!

Hello Snake83!

I’m not that familiar with the Masters programs you mentioned, but from what I’ve heard from industry professionals, having pre-MBA private equity experience is a must for getting that senior associate/VP role post MBA. So if you can show that you’ve taken steps towards that goal, then I think you’ll have a fighting chance.

Since you don’t have any relevant internship experience in IB or PE, perhaps you can talk about relevant research experiences in the healthcare field. Published papers within the field of your choosing would be great as well, and they would also be really unique. Another thing to have in mind is that you can apply for the deferred MBA programs as long as you are in school. So, if you join a Masters program at either of the two schools you mentioned, you can just apply for the deferred MBA programs then, and accumulate some solid IB internship experience during the school year. That could help create a strong first impression when applying to these deferred MBA programs.

Since I’m not too familiar with the Masters programs you mentioned, I’m just inclined to believe that the M7 won’t really care about which one you choose, as long as you are able to get work experience from solid IB, and afterwards, Healthcare related Pre-MBA PE shops prior to joining the MBA program. A lot of hiring in Europe happens regionally, so a degree from IE will get you interview invites in Spain. I’d pick the program based on where you want to go, unless you feel very strongly about any one school.

Haven’t heard back regarding an interview. I’m gonna wait till the end of the month, and I’ll call them up to inquire about interviews if I don’t get one till then. Email says 1-2 weeks, but the app said 2-4 weeks. Will keep everyone posted.

Yep, I saw that as well. No updates on my end, as of now. Nervously hoping for some good news in the coming days. I am literally willing to sacrifice my soul to the Lovecraftian gods for an interview.

Still 2 weeks of hope left. I spoke with the Kellogg front desk 2 weeks ago, and the review process should be fully completed by the 26th. If we don’t hear back by then, it’s gg.
