WL at Kellogg but $$$ at Booth. Just for my own self justification - are the two schools that different in culture and students profile? When I applied, I know there are differences but didn’t think it would be that much. I even think I have more chance at Kellogg than Booth. I know I’m lucky (only apply 2 for R1) and I’m grateful for Booth with scholarship. Congrats to all my Kellogg fellows today!

Same exact thing happened to me last year, and I could not be happier at Booth. In general, I think all M7s are way more similar than they are different in terms of culture and profile - all filled with incredibly high-achieving, lovely people, many of whom have similar goals and interests as you. Congrats and hope this helps!

The admissions process is definitely very subjective and probably driven by a lot of things other than stats. I got into two of my target schools with big scholarships but only received a tiny scholarship from my safety (honestly I was expecting a full ride from this safety school after I got big scholarships from the other two more competitive schools). Looking back I think I definitely networked more and attended more events held by the two target schools, although I’m an alum and attended a decent number of events and conferences at the safety school. I think interest is probably something schools care and shows in different aspects of my applications.

I think you are right!! I “feel” like I tried to treat both schools equally but maybe somewhere in my apps I have given it away. They do this for a long time already and they know. Admitted at 2 top schools w big $$$ is a dream though - congrats!!!

Arg…then I’m not sure why? I even thought I struggled more with my interview at Booth. I was able to connect with Kellogg alum interviewer and we shared same things we wanted to work on

Stats?

Gmat 750, GPA 3.9, 5yrs of experience, good leadership experience, weak on ECs though but then did lots of mentoring at work

Why won’t ethnic so called groups come together and be Human for the good of ALL? Study history and no one can play the slavery, discrimination, removal from homelands, genocide card! From the beginning every ethnic cultural group has suffered them all.

Not so true of our students who are more accepting.
