Unsuccessful at Kellogg in R1 or R2? Kellogg will reconsider your application
Big news out of Kellogg today, where they announced the waiving of standardized test scores for Round 3 applicants, and the option for denied Round 1 and Round 2 applicants to have their applications reconsidered.
The significance of Kellogg’s flexibility during this crisis is notable, so much so that they emphasized these changes shouldn’t be considered permanent changes to their application process. It is unprecedented, indicative of numerous pressures top schools are facing, and creates opportunities to test the depth of applicant pools.
For candidates from R1 and R2 who want to be reconsidered, the school is going to be reaching out in a few days to advise you of the process. We would expect decision timelines to be short, and successful candidates to be required to provide a significant deposit on short notice in order to secure their spot. Again, however, these are unprecedented times, and we will be learning more as the process unfolds.
For extended R3 candidates, particularly ones who were considering R1 next year but are yet to complete the standardized testing component, this could be a once-in-a-lifetime chance to apply without that pressure. For candidates who have already completed their testing (and have a strong test score), this could be an even more ideal time to pull your application forward.
If interested in having Kellogg reconsider your application or applying in R3 for the first time, connect with us!
