Good luck, guys. If you have any questions for a new Booth student, feel free to PM me.

I don't know anything about admissions dates. I can speak mostly to culture, some classes, Chicago, LEAD, bidding - stuff like that.


What do you consider to be the biggest advantage of the flexible curriculum?

Hi everyone,

Had a few queries wrt the application submission. A few of them got clarified, thanks to the post of some helpful members (eg: the non-checked box that I saw in the hispanic-latino column of the application proof pdf !!) but there are still a few pending ones that have made me nervous:

1. In the class rank box, I wrote "top xx% from xxx student trainees". I am sure that everything had been typed properly as I had double checked. But the pdf shows - "top xx% from x" - clipping the no of peers by 99% (from 500 to 5)!!

2. The name of my college is pretty long --- yes, insanely long! (around 100+ characters). When I typed it, the whole name was shown in the "Institution Name" box. But again, the pdf shows only about 60 charachters!

3. In the Work Experience section, while describing my recent job function and its associated responsibilties, I had written about four small (and neat!) paragraphs. However, again to my horror, I find that only 2.5 paras are seen. The rest seem to have vanished!

Now, I am just hoping that all three are just related to some glitch wrt the amount that can be processed in the pdf and that the actual essay will contain everything but I am not sure.
I can assure you guys that I had specifically checked to see whether there was a word-limit for the description boxes in the WE and Extra-curricular section before I had typed in my answers. It was only after I had doubly-checked (by saving an answer and coming back to the page to see if everything was being shown in the description box) that I had submitted those answers.

Anyone else in the same shoes? Should I call up the adcom and ask them about this?

Thanks in advance......

I had similar truncation issues wrt to my mailing address. I had that clarified with ad com before I submitted my app...It was being stored correctly but was simply not being displayed properly..

Prima facie our cases seem identical...However, I would strongly suggest you call up ad com and have each of these points clarified. The ad com office is very helpful and it shouldn't take you much time at all..

What do you consider to be the biggest advantage of the flexible curriculum?


The advantage is that you don't have to repeat things that you already know, and you can tailor your coursework to very specific areas that you're trying to enhance. For instance, if you're targeting IB internships but don't come from a finance background, you can broadcast your interest in the field by loading up on finance classes. Sounds obvious but I didn't really get this when I was applying. That is a huge plus and should allow you to differentiate yourself by crafting a unique story.

That said, the curriculum isn't as flexible as they'd have you believe in your first (of three) quarter because there are a few classes that are prerequisites to almost everything else. So while it's not really explicit, micro and accounting are de facto requirements. The curriculum does however allow you to skip those (as mentioned) if you have the background.

The other plus is that you can dial up the pain as much as you want. Depending on your level of intellectual curiosity and when you want to recruit, this can be helpful in mitigating some workload volatility. Everyone is different.

Yes. I think it's standard communication: "Industry-specific topics. Critical discussions. Meaningful connections". Is it?

I'm confused...

Is this a tease, or are they really sending out interview invites already?

I don't think it's an interview invitation. It's just a subscription communication: look at the bottom of your email: "I no longer wish to receive email from Chicago Booth, please unsubscribe me."

And take into account that interview invites will start to be released around October 26th if the follow last year pattern.

^ Gotya, thanks!

Does anyone know in what order the applications are reviewed? For instance, I submitted 2-3 weeks before the deadline, does that mean my app will be reviewed earlier than someone who submitted closer to the deadline?

May I request every one who has submitted the app or is planning to submit one in future rounds to update the school details on their profile using this link -
http://gmatclub.com/forum/ucp.php?i=164

This will help all of us have access to much more accurate & meaningful stats...

Thanks!

Thank you scorpionz. Yes, I guess I will call up the adcom today and ask if I need to be worried about this !! Haven't been able to get over this in the last 48hrs. I was kind off hoping that some fellow gclubber would give me the good news that it is all okay .... but i guess I am the only one facing such a peculiar situation!

Will someone who has submitted please do me a favor...

Log into the Booth Application website and 'Preview Application Proof' Check your GMAT score breakdown? Is it correct?

The 'Preview Application Proof' changed my quant score from a 47 to a 46. However, I just checked my original application proof (the one I printed when I submitted my application), and it shows the correct score, so it must be an error on their end.

Not sure if I should e-mail them about this or not. Kind of irritating that it's lowering my score for no reason!

Just checked...All good for me..The same score is reflecting in my printed copy and on the website..

I would say give them a call & have it sorted out rightaway...If the score on the website is indeed not correct, it will not match with the official score report they receive from GMAC anyway...so rather than letting them come back to you for a clarification, better have this addressed and out of your way now itself!

In my case, the precentages do change, but not he score. Anyway, I realized from the beginning but thought it was normal.

Hope it helps!
