No idea, but i'm guessing the video questions are less important than the essay questions.


Kellogg's video questions are mandatory as part of the online application (not to be confused with video interviews that some programs offer).


If you are looking to compare your profile to the profile of admitted candidates, look for the class profile on the school website. There you can see average gmat scores, gpa, work experience and other figures of admitted candidates.


If it's still relevant, try running your profile through this chances calculator:

Yep, totally subjective, but you should give a realistic evaluation of your application in order to get an accurate prediction.

Same here, it got me thinking and i remembered things that happened years ago and worth mentioning on the resume, like promotions and projects i ran.


If you're asking what is the latest Date to Take GMAT for Round 3, i think in most schools you only need to have your unofficial score when you submit your application, and have the official score sent to the school later (but you should verify this).

Very good point regarding promotions, however i think that even moving to a different role in another company may be considered as promotion if you can explain why your new role is better or more senior, like moving from being an engineer in a team to managing a team (in another company).


I think you should ask whatever you want to know, except for questions that can easily be answered by reading the school's website, since it shows you didn't do your research. If you are talking to an alumnus, you can ask why he/she chose that school, what did he/she like about it etc.
