Received below from Kellogg for round 3 application. Is it worth to apply ???

To say that we're in the midst of widespread change is an understatement. And we understand — having spoken with thousands of people in your shoes over the years — that this might affect your decision to apply to business school.



We also know that the online options for the GMAT and GRE that became available recently do not accommodate everyone and present the added challenges of studying in a crunched timeline.



Your goals matter, and nothing about the disruption you are experiencing — from changes in your career path to difficulty in accessing testing centers — should hold you back. To that end, we will now waive the GMAT/GRE/TOEFL/IELTS requirement on our Full-Time MBA application throughout the rest of Round 3. The rolling deadline remains in place through June 1.



I've published a post that goes through the details on Inside Kellogg. I encourage you to read it and contact us with further questions via MBAadmissions@kellogg.northwestern.edu or (847) 491-3308.



My team and I want you to get to the other side of this disruption, look back, and feel good that you made the right decisions for your future. We wish you well during these trying times and are eager to support you as you move forward throughout the application process.



Regards,



Kate Smith '98

Maybe the admissions consultants can offer a more detailed answer, but I would say that in the absence of a GMAT/GRE score, your undergraduate GPA will be the main data point on your application and under closer scrutiny...so if your GPA is well above the class average and in a quant-heavy major, I'd say go for it!

If you have a lower GPA though, I'd guess the absence of a standardized test score on your application might actually hurt you.

Just a basic one - what's stopping an international applicant from applying to this round, getting accepted and then deferring to next year (as lets say he/she is probably not going to have enough time to get a visa sorted)? Like I wasn't really planning on applying until R1 for most schools later this year but it seems to me like I have literally nothing to lose if I try applying to R3 for Kellogg this year?

Well if you don't get in R3 and plan to re-apply in R1, you're going to have only a few months to show a substantial improvement in your profile for your re-application essay

I think I read somewhere that they are allowing international admits (assuming unable to secure visas) to do one of two things:

1. Attend classes online until they can secure a visa.

2. Withdraw application for this cycle to have it transferred over to R1 for class of 2022. The application fee would be waived and you would only have to provide an "update" essay much like a re-applicant.

So, it doesn't look like they are allowing deferrals (maybe on a case-by-case basis, who knows).

So I'm not sure it would be any advantage for you to apply now vs applying in R1 if you already know you will be deferring no matter what. Now, if you don't have a problem attending classes online for maybe a semester, I'd say it's probably worth it to apply now! :)

"International candidates are strongly encouraged to apply by the Round 1 or Round 2 deadline" but you can still apply.

Yes, I have applied in R3 without GMAT score last week. Not heard about interview yet. I know this is a shot in the dark, but I just went for it.
