Just weeks ago, many of you found out you were one of the lucky ones who got a call from Kellogg admissions. They told you that you’d been accepted into the MBA program. Some of you may have been pretty confident in your applications, but for most, it must feel like a pretty magical moment. I was pretty excited when I got the call last year. But just when you thought you couldn’t be more excited, think again! It’s time for DAK (Day at Kellogg), which is Kellogg’s version of Admit Weekend.
First off, congratulations again on your acceptance to Kellogg. I hope and suspect you’ve taken a huge sigh of relief, started planning spring break trips, looking into summer getaways, and basically just enjoying life a bit more since you were admitted. Anyhow, the point of this post is just to quickly to let you know that a DAK schedule is finally on its way out, if you haven’t already received already. I definitely hope everyone comes out to Evanston. Many of you have already decided Kellogg is the place for you, which is great news. If that’s the case, you have no reason not to come. All of your classmates will be here. And others of you haven’t decided and are still weighing your decision. That’s also great news, because this was a tough year for applicants. But you should come too to help make that decision.
No matter which box you fix in, DAK is definitely worthwhile. I went to a number of admit weekends last year, and I found it not only to be a lot of fun, but also a great way to affirm your school decision … or to help you make a new one. Additionally and equally as important, the MBA world feels pretty small sometimes, so admits weekends are a good way to make new friends and to learn about the differences in culture with other schools, which will really pay off when everyone starts asking you advice on how they can get in. Anyhow, hope to see everyone there!
