Dear Admissions Officer,
I am writing to support the candidacy of Laura, a waitlisted applicant for the Kellogg class of 2021. Laura enthusiastically reached out to me last October to learn about Kellogg, and we have remained in touch since. I was very impressed with Laura from our first conversation. Her thoughtful questions ranged far beyond the curriculum, delving into our distinctive culture, experiential learning, and opportunities to drive community engagement.
In my opinion, Laura is a “must have” for the Kellogg community.
One thing that stood out during our conversations was how Laura quickly translated my Kellogg experiences into the many ways in which she could contribute on campus. She was excited, based on her extensive team leadership experiences across Asia for ExxonMobil, to help class-mates overcome the challenges inherent in leading multi-cultural teams. She wants to leverage her work at ExxonMobil organizing speaker series and interactive leadership workshops to support the Kellogg Women in Business Club.
I was impressed by Laura’s passion, and clear vision for a future career in business-facing operations strategy, and her well-researched understanding of how Kellogg was the ideal place to realize that vision. She enthusiastically discussed her plans to leverage multiple growth opportunities at Kellogg, such as the Consulting Club and Analytics Club, to reach her career goals.
Frankly, I have rarely come across an individual of Laura’s caliber; vibrant and driven to create impact, with unique global leadership experience and a passion for Kellogg. She definitely fits into the archetype of the Kellogg student. I am confident that she will be successful here, and it would be wonderful, and valuable to the Kellogg community, to have her on board.
