I submitted a few days before and was invited on the last possible day. Again, can't game the system or figure out their plan.

It's random - i have submitted my R2 app on the dot and got an invite to interview in the first wave of the applicants. Don't try to guess what is going on at the back-end of this process.

Has anybody come across any indication from announcements/Q&As from Booth Adcom regarding the order in which they review applications? I'm curious if they review them in random order or if they are reviewed in the order in which they were received.

Re: Booth 2012 - Calling All Applicants [#permalink] New post 30 Apr 2012, 01:54
Hello all,

I did my r3 interview with an alumnus of Booth on Saturday. Interview deadline is tomorrow and I don't know if he has submitted his report (actually I don't know if this is the same deadline for the alumnus to submit his feedback). Should I contact the school tomorrow and inform them I have completed my interview asking them if they have received the report from the alumnus? Or is it better to contact the alumnus directly to ask him if he has submitted his report?
Thanks in advance.

Thank you all for your responses.

@veteran: Even though, as you understand, our chances as international applicants at r3 are marginal at best, I too hope you good luck and hope you get admitted to Chicago Booth!

Here is on marginal chances of admission in R3 from WL thread:

It is worth considering the fact that last year they have extended offers to ~918 students. Given that there are always less students who pay the deposit than there are students who get the offer, 700 deposits might actually mean 900+ offers, which decreases our chances dramatically. I think the majority of WL applicants will be re-waitlisted on the 16th and will get the decision on June 1 and June 31, when R1 and R2 final deposits ($1000) are due and maybe just a few (5-10 students) when the tuition is due in full late summer.

And given there are ~700 students in the directory after the R2 deposit deadline - chances of us WL getting in are probably marginal at best - seems that Booth's yield went up this year.

Here is from an earlier post: Actually, Boothie2014's statistics are not completely accurate. I see the 781 incoming students in the directory, but that number includes about 320 R1 Admits who were in the database following the R1 deposit deadline. I can't remember the exact numbers, but I believe there were around 500 R1 admits (+/- 10-15) prior to the deposit deadline. So, the R1 yield was right around 65% and about 180 R1 Admits did not place a deposit. This means there were approx. 460 R2 Admits (incl. those accepted from the R1 waitlist). Assuming a 60% yield in R2, 596 seats are spoken for between R1 and R2. This paints a very different picture of the remaining number of spots for R3 applicants and current waitlisters.

R1 paid the first deposit (320 students out of 500 admits), R2 paid the deposit (380 students out of 460 admits). Higher yield in R2 makes sence since a portion of R2s were either 1) looking for a better deal than their R1 or 2) trying to secure A school after dings in their top choices in R1. I would prob be waiting for June 1st when some of the current admits decide to do something else. However, with over 700 students on the roster it's hard to imagine that it would add a lot of room for us WL-ers. Better to get adequately prepped to R1 class 2013.

Let us know if you find any new info!

Hi,
Thanks for the information.
Are you sure about the numbers? 780 is the number of offers or the number of paid deposits? (it make more sense to me that it is the number of offers, not deposits).
According to BW the final yield is around 63% (not the 1st deposit yield) and they have just 580 seats a year (=920 offers in total).
I find it hard to believe that they won't extend any offers for r2 WL or r3.
In my communications with the admission team, I sensed that they take r3 very serious, much more than other top schools, and I am sure that they will extend some offers. I know the chances are not high but they exist. I believe that people that were invited to interviews on r3 have a real chance (I believe that more or less 30% of the people being interviewed will get an offer).

One of the admitted students looked up the directory and quoted ~700 admits from R1 and R2 who paid the deposits. Granted, quite a few of R1 admits who paid the deposit (320 students) might decide not to attend, but still, ~700 deposits sounds like a lot to me.

I am definitely not claiming anything, I'd like to find out what are our chances to get admitted myself, but that's what the numbers are.

Still 30% acceptance rate in R3 sounds really high...

Hi
I meant 30% from those who gets interview... not from the applicants pool of round 3 (then it will probably be much more closer to 10-15%).
Thank you for the information and good luck !

The ~700 incoming students quoted from the directory includes all admits, regardless of program. So the ~700 number can't be used for the full-time R3 estimates since it includes Evening, Part-Time, and Executive MBA Admits.

That explains why that number is so much higher than Chicago's target full-time class of ~550.

nah, the ~700 number is only for full time. The number including evening, part-time, executive MBA admits is over 1100 (go look in the directory yourself at the bottom corner).

Thanks for the correction, I was working off a false assumption. :) Last time I looked at the directory was January.

Congrats on all the admits ... which school are you going to pick?

For R2 waitlisters who had someone submit an additional letter of recommendation. Did you receive a notification from Adcom that the letter was added to your file? Or can you see it on the system when you login? Thanks!

My recommender received a confirmation e-mail from Booth. I did not receive a confirmation e-mail, and it does not appear on the website.

According to last year, it only started at 1530-1545 Chicago time, so we still have one more hour to go...
