Learning Team

Learning Teams are an invaluable peer resource for Darden students as they navigate the core curriculum.

VIDEO ESSAY

We’ve read your essays, we’ve read your resume — now we want you to bring all that to life in a video. Show us the person behind all those carefully crafted words. The video will be comprised of three questions, each designed to help you showcase your personality and share some of the experiences that brought you here today.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Here are some things to keep in mind as you prepare to complete this section:

  • Video Essays are due 96 hours after the application deadline.
  • A video essay link will appear on your application status page after you submit your application and payment (starting in September 2021).

  • The video should take about 20-25 minutes to complete, which includes time for setup.

WHAT TO EXPECT

You will be asked three questions. Here are some insights:

  • One question will be an opportunity to introduce yourself to the Kellogg team.
  • The second question will ask about your plans for the future and how Kellogg will help you on that journey.
  • The third question will focus on a challenge you’ve faced and what you’ve learned from it.
  • You will have 20 seconds to think about the question and up to one minute to answer.
  • To help you get comfortable with the format and technology, we offer a set of practice questions. We highly encourage you take advantage of these because the official essay questions cannot be re-recorded.

After submitting your application and payment, you will be able to access the video essay through your application status page. You will be asked to answer three questions:

Video essay 1: Please introduce yourself to the admissions committee.

– Consider this your opportunity to share what you would want your future Kellogg classmates and our admissions committee to know about you. What makes you, you?

Video essay 2: What path are you interested in pursuing, how will you get there, and why is this program right for you?

– This is an intentionally broad question so you can answer honestly and meaningfully. We want to know why you’re pursuing an MBA and why you’re choosing a particular Kellogg Full-Time Program

Video essay 3: This question will be based on a challenge you’ve faced and what you’ve learned from it.

Here are some additional tips:

  • There are practice questions that you may complete as many times as you like to get comfortable with the format and technology. The practice questions and experience will simulate the actual video essay experience, so this is meant to be a useful tool to help you feel prepared
  • We encourage you to practice so you are comfortable with the format once it is time to complete the official questions. You will not have an opportunity to re-do the answer to the official video essay questions
  • You will have 20 seconds to think about the question and up to one minute to give your response
