Some tips from the Kellogg Director of Admissions
In a conversation with Beth Flye, Director of Admissions at Kellogg, ARINGO consultants discussed and learned some valuable Kellogg admission tips:
Kellogg seeks interesting, multi-faceted candidates, who will present themselves in an honest and intriguing manner. They should be able to clearly explain their goals and why they seek an MBA. The candidates should be confident without arrogance, authentic, and reflect (in the application) not only their heads, but also their hearts.
Flye emphasizes that there is no ideal candidate profile, and the school does not alter student body composition based on post-MBA marketplace trends.
In terms of recommendations, one should choose quality recommenders who can give an overall perspective of the candidate and go beyond general statements to give specific examples.
For interviews, Flye advises applicants to know themselves well and communicate their goals very clearly. They should show that they have done their research and ask specific questions about the school.
