In assessing an application, the Admissions Committee evaluates the individual’s scholastic ability, personal character, motivation, leadership ability, interpersonal skills, career performance and management potential. The Committee, numbering 50 students, staff and faculty, carefully appraises the following:
- an applicant’s academic transcripts, performance on the Graduate Management Admissions Test and the quantitative aspects of an applicant’s work experience
- a Career Progress Survey report from someone able to evaluate your job performance, preferably your manager
- the evaluative interview report
- the range and depth of work experience
- collegiate extracurricular activities and current community involvement
The Kellogg admissions process is a multi-step, team approach. Typically, a file will be reviewed first by a student member of the Admissions Committee, and then forwarded for additional review by staff members, including the Director of Admissions. If there is a lack of consensus among the readers, the application will be evaluated a fourth time by a student reader. The readers then meet to make a final decision by consensus.
