Hello -

I am a prospective R3, female, international applicant to Kellogs. I wanted some feedback from the group based on their past experience with R3 applicants to this school. Yes, I'm aware that spots in R3 are fewer for intl applicants. Even so, I'd be curious to have an informed guesstimate, if that's possible.

My stats:
Total Experience : 7 Yrs. This includes 5-Years Big -4 IT consulting experience (USA) & 1.5 years managerial experience (India)
GMAT - 710
Education : B.Tech, India ; M.S, Univ of Texas, Arlington - 3.8 / 4.0
Age, Gender, Nationality : 32 years, Female, India (International Applicant)
Extra-curriculars : IEEE Publication, Career and Life skills counselor at an India-based Education NGO for over 2 years. Volunteered consistently in education sector as part of Junior Achievement etc.
Long term goal : Plan to target unmet needs of education market thru innovative IT solutions based on insights gained over volunteering experiences

Thanks

To be honest, even if you applied in R1 or R2, you'd be a huge stretch for a school like Kellogg. With your profile, schools like Ross, Darden, Duke, Cornell, Yale, UCLA and NYU are more in range.

As for R3, it's virtually nil - not only for a school like Kellogg, but for US schools simply because of visa issues -- you run the risk of not getting your F1 visa in time for school to start, and adcoms as a result will simply not want to take that risk. This is probably not what you want to hear this close to the R3 deadline, but just know what to expect going into R3 with your profile and situation.

Alex - Thanks for the review. Could you please elaborate on why you think it might be a stretch even for R1 and R2 at kellogs ?

If that's something I could work on I'd like to see how I can fix that.

Well, for one it's Kellogg, not "kellogs".

Secondly, being Indian and IT isn't something they're as interested compared to other profiles (i.e. not in IT/engineering). Also, while schools like Kellogg aren't as discriminatory with respect to age, you are on the high end (middle 80% of incoming full-time students are around 26-30).

What you can and should do is focus on other schools as well - schools where you are more competitive for, and to apply in R1/R2.

And given your age and level of experience, it may be worth looking into part-time and executive programs instead.
