Submitted for Round 1 on time . . . unfortunately both recommenders missed the first deadline. One says he's since submitted and the second is using the extension period as the new deadline. Looks like I'll be incomplete for at least a few more days. On a positive note, I went to the Booth Live event on the 16th and it was a blast. The academic rigor of the school was definitely emphasized and lots of good info about marketing and experiential learning. The building was by far the best bschool facility that I've seen, although Duke's is a close second.


Should have PMed me, by chance I was on campus visiting some friends... I also stopped by the admissions office, and no surprise, applications figures for R1 are up again this year.

Did anyone receive an e-mail with information about Round 1 after they submitted the application? I'm a reapplicant and I know they sent out an e-mail last year, but I didn't get anything this time. Just wondering if I missed something. :?

Wolfie, what do you exactly mean with an email with the information?

I received this:

Dear [your name],

Your status has changed to "Complete". The next step in the process is to allow for the admissions committee to review your application. All applicants who are invited to interview will be notified by 5:00pm November 11th.

Thanks, Latammc!

Last year they sent out this e-mail:
Next Steps for Round 2 Applicants

Thanks for submitting your application and for your interest in Chicago Booth. In keeping with our commitment to transparency in the Admissions process, we are sending this email to explain what will happen with your application within the next few weeks.
From January 7 to February 18:

This is our primary application evaluation period. While we're reading files, you will notice the status of your application periodically changing in our Online Application System. Below is a description of each status:

Submitted - Once you submit your application online the status will change to "Submitted." At this time, edits to your application are no longer possible. Recommendations may be submitted until January 14th.

Received - This means that we've received your materials. Your status may not be changed to "Received" for about two weeks after the application deadline. If your status does not read "Received" by January 26, contact us at admissions@ChicagoBooth.edu

Complete - This means that all required information has been received and physically placed in your file by the operations team. If your application status doesn't read "Complete" by January 28, please contact us at admissions@ChicagoBooth.edu

Incomplete - This means that we have not received all of your required information. We'll contact you via email if you are "Incomplete." You can also check which requirements are missing on the Application Status screen in the Online Application System.

The Admissions Committee will begin to release interview invitations on Wednesday, January 21st and will continue this process through Wednesday, February 18th. Look for an email that asks you to check your status via the Online Application System. If your status reads Invite to Interview, the Admissions Committee believes an interview will help us further evaluate your admission credentials. We will provide detailed instructions on scheduling your interview.

If you do not receive an invitation to be interviewed by the mid-decision date (February 18), you will receive your final decision on that date.
From February 18 to March 25:

As soon as you have been invited to interview, you will need to schedule and complete your Admissions interview. All Interviews must be completed by March 4.

Remember that if invited to interview, you will be required to submit official transcripts, GMAT scores and/or TOEFL/IELTS score reports by March 9. Please note that even after your interview is completed, your status will remain "Invite to Interview" until a final decision has been made.

After your interview is completed, the Committee will again read your application along with your interview feedback in order to make a final decision.

On March 25, the Final Decision date, we'll be ready to release final decisions at 9:00 am. Look for the last email asking you to check your status online.

The Admissions team is here to address your questions and concerns. Feel free to reach us at 773.702.7369 or admissions@ChicagoBooth.edu. Good Luck!

Warm regards,


Rosemaria Martinelli
Associate Dean, Student Recruitment & Admissions



I guess they are only e-mailing when your application goes complete now.

Hi!
where are people addressing the "Why GSB" question , or how will you contribute to Booth question. Essay 2 doesn't fit and in the powerpoint how can you address that unless you spell it out in sentences? Is just talking abt in short in essay 1 sufficient?

@ Aditi: I'd say the answer to Why Booth? should go in essay 1. The question asks "what about the Chicago Booth mba makes you feel ..." That seems like an invitation to talk about why Booth. Obviously you've got to fit a lot into essay 1, but I think I included a couple paragraphs on why Booth.

Funny, I was just reading this and then got an email from Booth describing basically exactly what Wolfie was talking about. Here's the key dates... I guess we can all relax for another week :wink: :

The Admissions Committee will begin to release interview invitations on Monday, October 26th and will continue this process through Wednesday, November 11th. Look for an email that asks you to check your status via the Online Application System. If your status reads Invite to Interview, the Admissions Committee believes an interview will help us further evaluate your admission credentials. We will provide detailed instructions on scheduling your interview.

If you do not receive an invitation to be interviewed by the mid-decision date (November 11), you will receive your final decision on that date.
From November 11 to December 16:

As soon as you have been invited to interview, you will need to schedule and complete your Admissions interview. All Interviews must be completed by November 30.

After your interview is completed, the Committee will again read your application along with your interview feedback in order to make a final decision.

On December 16th, the Final Decision date (revised from December 22nd), we'll be ready to release final decisions at 9:00 am. Look for the last email asking you to check your status online.

Adcoms from different schools are playing with my heart...I received 2 different emails from Chicago adcom today, one was the one with the dates, the other was a survey of an event I attended a month ago...Also received another email from Kellogg....

I will definitely not make it past my 30s this way!

My second LOR was submitted last night... need to remain calm and realize that it is very unlikely I get an invite next week, even as the inevitable stream of invites start getting reported here.

Afan, the information email was sent yesterday and I believe has nothing to do with payment confirmation...in fact when payment is received and processed they send you an email saying that your app has moved from received to complete

Is anybody else finding the system to check your status to be currently down? I guess I could relax, I checked yesterday and all it said was Complete. Does anyone know what % of applicants Booth interviews? Where did we select On Campus or Off Campus interviews or is that something you do after you've been notified?

Good luck to everyone!

I recieved the information email 3 days back, but I had made the payment on 8th Oct itself, submitted the app on 10th. I dont think it has anything to do with payment processing. Probably just a regular email batch that they started sending based on when you submitted your app.
