Kellogg Application - Done

I completed and submitted my Kellogg Application this week, 3 days before the deadline for Round 1. After 15-20 reviews my essays were looking quite polished, resume wasn’t bad either. I do bring out a complete story through my essays and highlight different skills that I consider important. Overall my application looks reasonable strong. Time will tell. I try to put in my best effort and don’t worry too much about results. I still have the interview pending and that should be done in a couple of weeks.

Based on this experience, I hope that the following applications would be stronger. The Kellogg application has taken a lot out of me and taking into account the work pressure, I am considering reducing the number of schools to 4. Four excellent applications are lot better than 5 good ones. Application process is very competitive and you pay a heavy price for being anything less than extra-ordinary.

I have started my ‘Tepper’ Application and the deadline is less than a month from now!!
So Lets get the Application started!!

Good luck to you on the remaining apps. After one of my recommenders threw a fit about writing 6 recommendations even I was considering reducing the number of apps. But just can't decide which school to chuck.

Good luck, looks like you have done your best and made a strong case to be admitted. My first application took out a lot too and I just took the full week off from applications to relax. Give yourself a well deserved short break and then get back to your next app.

Good luck mate. I definitely agree that it's better to get in fewer applications of a better quality. I am only applying to two in round 1 and maybe two more in round 2.

Hahaha, I started out with a target of 7 schools, after the first app, I came down to a target of 4! I also threw out some highly competitive schools and put in some where I think I have a better chance of getting in.

Glad u made in on time. I totally understand wanting to drop schools - I am doing the same - now i'm considering just applying to 2 instead of 3. The app process just drains u esp with work.

Have you done anything earth shattering lately?

Read anything that really sets your mind on fire with a passion to do good?

How about doing something important for yourself?

Have you?

Do you know without a doubt where life is taking you?

Got a Plan?

Know how to get there?

Most people don't. They just go through life hoping for the best. How can you possibly reach your dreams if you don't have a real plan?

A new year is coming. It's time to start thinking about your New Years Resolution and really start planning your life don't you think. Follow through on some of those old goals you had years ago.

Even people in the goal setting business tend not to visit their "life plan" very often.

Are you one of those?

Need a little refresher and some FREE goal setting tips?

Spend a few minutes at measurable goals and take away life changing information.

Happy New Year!
