MBA admissions tips

Essay(s): Sometimes candidates overthink the essays. These are not trick questions, there is no hidden meaning, and certainly no ‘right’ answer. The best response is the one that is authentic to you! Before starting to write the essays, it is essential to understand the gaps in your profile that a B-school will help you fill, and have clarity on why you want to go for a certain B-school. Get familiar with the core values and culture of the school and try to see how you can fit in well. 

Interview: MBA interviews are primarily conducted by alumni. Among other things, they are assessing your fit with their culture and defining principles. Applicants who can articulate why they are specifically interested in a B-school and how it’s culture appeals to them will be best prepared.  Interviews are conducted blindly, meaning the only thing your alumni interviewer knows about you is what is on the resume you submitted to Kellogg.

Letter(s) of recommendation: The purpose of LOR is to provide a strong premise to your essays. Do choose recommenders who can share specific examples about your background, achievements, contribution and impact to the organization. Don’t choose recommenders based purely on title.

CV/résumé: The résumé is often the first document that admissions officers review. It provides a snapshot of your candidacy in one page. Take the time to clearly articulate your accomplishments, highlighting the skills or experiences that are most relevant for business school.
