    You have a super profile from top to bottom for an admit to Kellogg.

  • Odds Assessment: 40%

    Dear Mr. Class President,

    Congratulations on your various successes! One part of your narrative that I find intriguing is your mix private sector (accounting) and nonprofit sector (education) experience. Accounting and finance professionals tend to be overrepresented in applicant pools, so it is always important to find a way to distinguish yourself. One area to explore in your application is how you plan to leverage your insights from TFA to achieve your vision of launching a network of technology-focused charter schools.

    1) Why/how will these new charter schools be different from what’s currently available?
    2) Why you are the person to lead this initiative?
    3) How will Kellogg resources specifically help you achieve this vision?

    I am …

    Hi Mr. Class President, Jen Kedrowski here at mbaMission. Like your title indicates, you have shown you are likely to be involved on campus, given your history at VA Tech as Class President, Phi Alpha Theta, Golden Key and so forth. That is a strength of your profile, as is your GPA, and congrats on graduating in 3 years on top of it. Kellogg will appreciate all that you accomplished in your university time.

    Now that is has been 6+ (?) years since undergrad, the admissions committee will also be interested in your accomplishments during your career, your rationale for your choices (definitely curious how you chose accounting post TFA! If I am following the timeline here) and how your …

    I guess I'm mostly just confused about how you came up with a 319.5 GRE score?? Are you adding in your analytical writing score (which can be graded on the half point)? Generally, you only add your Verbal and Quant scores together. If that's the case then I really echo the advice to retake the GRE. I used Magoosh to study and found it helpful. Best of luck!
