    Mr. IDF Commander – Thanks for posting your profile. Susan Cera here from Stratus.

    I presume that you are applying to Kellogg in the R3+ rolling cycle and opted to apply now since the GMAT/GRE was not required. Unfortunately, they will be looking even more closely at your transcript with a subpar GPA when they don’t have other quantitative measures to evaluate your ability to take on the rigor of the program.
