Hi,

First of all, thank you for taking your time to answer my question!

I have submitted my applications to Kellogg(interviewed), Booth(Interview invited), Yale SOM, and Sloan for R2. In the application form, I left the ending bonus section empty because I wasn't sure what the amount will be. Now I know how much it is going to be (70% of my base salary).

Is it worth it to contact the admissions committee to update the bonus amount? I am not sure if this information will help my candidacy or not. I am also worried that my action will annoy them, hurting my candidacy. Only Kellogg has a section that allows me to add supplemental information to the application portal website.

Thanks for your help in advance!

Hi there,

Congrats on your successful application cycle so far! That's a good question re: your bonus but it's honestly not worth an update in my experience. It's not going to be a deciding factor in an admit vs. reject decision. In addition, you're certainly not the only applicant who will have gotten his/her bonus in Jan/Feb so it's not a new or unusual situation :) Since Kellogg allows you to easily submit an update online, you could do so there if it's going to give you peace of mind but I don't recommend submitting a manual update to your other schools. (If you got promoted as well, then that's a different matter.)

I hope that helps! Best of luck with your interviews!

Kindly,
Melody
