Frequently Asked Questions

Q:    Why does Kellogg have a video essay?
A:    Student culture is hugely important at Kellogg. So we want to meet everyone. EVERYONE. We use the video essays as additional information to the application. It is the last thing we review when reading an application. 它能让龙8游戏官网网址了解你的个性,让龙8游戏官网网址以一种比通过你的文章更私人的方式了解你.

Q:    What makes a good video essay? 
A:    Be yourself. We don't want scripted answers - we want to get to know you and learn something new.  请不要试图重复使用一篇文章中的例子,这可能会以某种迂回的方式回答你被要求的视频文章问题(龙8游戏官网网址已经读过那篇文章, so why tell us that story again?).  Think about your answer and prepare ahead of time, 但是当你记录你的答案时,要真实地说——龙8游戏官网网址可以知道你是否在看笔记! 而且,你不需要记住龙8游戏官方网站那道题的答案,这会让你听起来像个机器人. 
Q:    What kind of questions will you ask? 
A:   We are going to be honest about this. Really. We don't want you to stress. 龙8游戏官网网址会问你一个破冰的问题,没有“正确答案”,帮助龙8游戏官网网址了解你. Want an example? Okay. "If you could live anywhere in the world for a year, where would it be and why?" See, not so hard. The second question will be about Kellogg.  And to make this even less mysterious we are going to give you the question.  Seriously. Here it is: “What path are you interested in pursuing, how will you get there, and why is this program right for you?” 其他的问题是面试类型的问题,但仍然不用担心.  Here is an example of the type of question you will be asked, “Tell me about a time you were not going to be able to meet a deadline.  How did you handle the situation?  What was the outcome?”
Q:    Are there right or wrong answers?
A:    No. This isn't a test. 龙8游戏官网网址通过视频短文获得更多龙8游戏官网网址你的信息,并以更私人的方式了解你. Don't have a perfect answer to the question? Do not panic! Answer it the best way you can and let your personality shine.

Q:    How many times can I record myself?

答:你可以根据自己的需要进行多次的录音练习,录音的内容(格式和问题类型)将与实际情况一致. 但是,当涉及到真正的视频作文问题时,你只有一次机会. So practice. We know you like to be prepared! Get comfortable with the technology. We put good practice questions out there so you won't be nervous. Have fun and do your best.

Q:    Really, I don't get a second chance
?
A:    Nope, sorry. This is a bit like an interview. 有时在面试中你被问到一个问题,你没有完美的答案, but you go ahead and give the best response you can. And, most of the time, it turns out well. That's what this is. 开始之前深呼吸,对自己有信心,相信自己有能力给出一个好的答案.

问:我有多少时间考虑答复,又有多长时间可以给出答复?
A:你将有20秒的时间考虑你的回答,60秒的时间给出你的答案. We suggest you practice. It will make this easier. Take 10 minutes to go through the practice questions. Answer them as if they were your real questions. The more you practice the more comfortable you will feel doing the real video essays.

Q:    What should I wear? Do I have to wear a suit?
A: You can wear a suit if you want to; but business casual is certainly okay with us too. And really, 龙8游戏官网网址只会看到你的头和肩膀,这样你就可以穿有领衬衫,龙8游戏官网网址永远不会知道你还穿着运动裤.

Q: Where should I record my video essay?

A: Wherever you like - your office, kitchen, apartment, hotel room. 只要确保你选择的地方有良好的网络连接和没有干扰.

Q:    What part of the application process is the video essay? How do I access the Video Essay?
A: After submitting your application, the Video Essay will be available when you log in to your applicant status page.

Q:    How much time will I have to complete the video essays?
答:提交申请后,你将被允许访问视频论文部分,在申请完成视频论文后,你将有96个小时的时间. 龙8游戏官网网址鼓励申请人在提交申请后不久完成他们的视频文章,而信息仍然在你的脑海中,这样你就不会忘记!  Also, 请尽量不要等到最后一刻才录制你的视频文章——如果你在最后一分钟匆忙录制,你会感到更有压力. Block out 20-25 minutes a few days after you submit your application and complete it.

Q:    How long will this take me?
A:    To be safe we are saying 20-25 minutes, 但如果你决定不做所有的练习题也没有任何龙8游戏官网网址布置的问题,龙8游戏官网网址认为是15题.
