By the way, I am a Spanish re-applicant, so I guess that the calls are moving towards Europe right now (just guessing).

Good luck guys!!! I hope that most of the GMATclub community get an admission offer!!


Congratulations osonipse!!!!! Te lo merecías compañero!!!!! :wink:

Hi all,

Congrats to people who got 'the call' and good luck to everyone who's waiting. I'm in London and just got the call about an hour ago (actually got 'the email' at 17:34 GMT because my phone wasn't working). Am super excited. Good luck to all the other Londoner's out there, and check your emails! (Stats: 750 GMAT / 3.63 GPA from tier 1 US school / worked in corporate strategy in NY and London for US Multinational).

And icing on the cake -- a very generous scholarship!!! Christmas comes early!


Congratulations buddy!

I've done a quick analysis comparing Booth to other top programs. Booth comes in at 2 or 3 regardless of how you cut the numbers.

My list uses the latest data that I could find from Forbes, Business Week, FT (US-only), Economist (US-only), CNN and US News. Feel free to update this thread if you find more up-to-date information. I've also re-run the analysis excluding non-business publications (CNN, USNews), which improves Booth's relative rank. Either way, the top 5 (HBS, Booth, Stanford, CBS, Wharton) don't really change.

Published rankings are obviously variable (they change annually), subject to sampling error (not all schools are ranked by all publications), and methodology biased (publications are not uniform in their ranking criteria). All that said, I think this provides a useful benchmark of the top 5 and top 10 programs in the US right now. And I think it reinforces the importance of "fit" if you've been admitted to more than one top 5 programs.


Just took a quick look. How did you get #4 for Wharton US News (I thought it was tied #3 with MIT). And also I thought Booth was #12 on FT (not #6)? Maybe I'm looking the wrong list somehow?

For those others that were accepted, how do you know about scholarships? Was that info volunteered on the call or did you ask? Was it in your official letter? I am very excited to join the class with or without the scholarship, but do want to make sure that I have all of the information that is available. Congrats to those accepted and good luck to all still applying and on the waitlist

Hi All,

I am a first year student at Chicago Booth. Congrats to all who made it. For people who did not make it, please do not lose heart. I know you might think that it is easier for me to say this because I am already in. I was in your shoes last year and was anxious about my results. I worked very hard on my essays and succeeded in getting in. I was happy but now i regret joining Booth. Contrary to perception, Booth students are struggling in getting internship. There are 200+ chasing consulting for internship with very few consulting opportunities out there. Banking recruitment is down and bank did not make enough offers to 2nd years who did internships. There is hardly any collaboration among Booth students. I and most of my friends have struggled in getting any guidance from batch mates, seniors and alumni. No matter what the admissions blog tells you, Booth alumnus don't respond to your mails. The faculty is great and one learns a lot. But it's practically impossible to land your dream job or anything close to that.

If you have a choice between Booth and H,S,W,Kellogg, Sloan, choose the other schools. There is much more support available. In case you are from Asia, NUS and ISB are better if you consider the money invested in your valuations. It's your career and the choice is completely yours. I just wanted to put the truth out there.

Regards

Your well wisher

I completely understand that it could be difficult to accept that I am from Booth. Forget about me. Lets talk about your wait list. I know a couple of my friends who got off the wait list. This is what you probably might consider doing. Talk to your interviewer now and see if u can get an extra letter of recommendation from him. Talk to the point of contact from student body for your country. As you are from India, there should be a country captain for India. Write to her and set up call with the country captain. Try and see if you can get any feedback on your application. Ask her to put you in touch with students/peers who got off the wait list. A kind 1st year did an application review for my friend who was on wait list. He cud identify key areas he missed out talking about in his app. This year the whole video thing is completely new and current students will not be able to guide you on that. But they can always help u identify what u missed. In case students don't have time to go through your application, tell them your story and key highlights of your application in 10 minutes. Contact as many alums as possible and have meaningful conversations. Express your passion about Booth in your letter (video) to admission committee. Do name drop the alums / students u talked to and what you learnt from them.

Most Important: Act now. Once Jan starts, 1st years get busy recruiting for internships and 2nd years get busy recruiting for jobs + helping 1st years. There would be Boothies who would have gone home to India over winter break. Set up meetings with them and try and see if you can get them to go thru your app and identify areas to strengthen ur app. Keep in touch with adcom but don't over communicate.

Best of Luck. At end of the day, it is also luck and for some ppl like me think that if we cud go back we wud exchange a ding for an admit.
