That was a big reason I didn't apply to Booth. I didn't like the idea of trudging to campus on public transportation during the Chicago winter for a recruiting event, while possibly getting shot on my way back to the bus stop. :-D

Hyde Park is the 3rd safest neighborhood in Chicago. Please remember that Chicago is a major city so of course you need to be careful. However, that can be said of Philly, NYC, Boston, etc. Exercising common sense goes a long way toward staying safe.

As for trudging to campus for a recruiting event, it's not really like that. Most of the time you are here regardless, whether it be for class, study groups, club meeting, etc. Almost everyone keeps a suit in their locker so that they don't have to wear it all day or go home and change before a recruiting event.

Also a lot happens downtown at the Gleacher Center so you don't always have to come up to Hyde Park. No matter where I am most of my time is spent with my classmates. Very few people just come to school, do recruiting, and then go home, never to be seen otherwise. I would say that Booth has an amazing community that's very active. Am I around all 576 of my classmates all the time? No. That would be impossible to do. Is 80% of my non class time spent with other Boothies in some capacity? Definitely. And I would say the majority of my classmates would say the same.

Hey, does anyone know if the results are supposed to be out by Dec 19 or on Dec 19?


I would say on the 19th. But they tend to call all the admits a day before the final decision date.

Do we need to worry about whether the alum interviewer has filed his report or not? Will Booth make sure that happens or do we need to remind the interviewer?

I think the problem is that Booth doesn't even probably know that the interview's been completed


Yes, I don't think they'll know because we've been scheduling with the Alumni ourselves. So, we may have to send a reminder if the report has not been filed even after 10 days or so.

No you do not need to send a reminder. Booth has a system in place to get the interviewer feedback. They know who your interviewer is and they will take care of it. Once your interview is over, leave it alone. Your feedback will be submitted. Just because your status hasn't updated to interview complete does NOT mean that you need to nudge the process along. Booth has been doing this for years. Trust that the admissions committee knows what they are doing.

Any idea?

He must have been joking! Or maybe, he's referring to the congratulatory call for the admit! :-D


Yeah, you only do one interview. Dunno what he was going on about.

I totally agree with the General (hello fellow Boothie!). I will also add that while there isn't just one type of Booth student, a common trait amongst Boothies is an ability to set your own course. If the adcom gets the idea that you are a person who prefers a more prescriptive experience then they will likely not think that you are a good fit for Booth. The General touched on everything else that would make an applicant not fit at Booth.

At what point are scholarships and fellowships discussed?...I was digging through last year's blog and found that some people were notified during their admission call, but perhaps some were notified much later. Is there a system to timing or is it totally random?


Many people are notified during the admissions call. Many others are notified later. I don't have the exact breakdown. The timing isn't random--it has to do with the particular scholarship/fellowship in question and purpose. Some scholarships are purely monetary, others aren't, etc. But I can't get into more specifics.

I think this is common for most schools. I got offered a scholarship from Booth during the admissions call. Kellogg, on the other hand, called me about 3 weeks after I had gotten in to tell me.

Yes I have a thought. Take a step back and relax. Decisions are next week. There's no reason to analyze whether you got this email or that email, whether it makes a difference if you got it on Thursday versus Friday or anything else. Be patient. Do something else to take your mind off admissions. Accept that it's entirely out of your hands now. Otherwise it'll just drive you nuts.

Im gonna assume everyone got the email from booth about the winter student hosted emails. Although, would be harsh to sign up and then get a rejection next week. Anyone else jump a little when they get these marketing emails titled "You're Invited"...a few more days


Totally



Guys actually i have not received the email talking abt winter student hosted events, the last one I've got was abt the admission chat last December 4th...
Maybe as I am from Europe they still have to send out the emails inviting to the events? When did you guys receive it?
It might be silly, but considering my status has not changed since my interview invitation notification (GMAT and TOEFL are still on awaiting) plus this is setting me in a bad state of mind.
Any thought on this?
Thanks!

September to December is misleading. Classes didn't start this year til Sept 27, so it's really more like October thru December.


Hi Cheetarah. I was going through your blog and came to know that the orientation for Booth Class of 2014 started on Sep06. I know that the Random Walk ended on Aug28 - Aug29. So, what happened on the 7-8 days between Random Walk and orientation? Were there any activities planned or the students who skipped the Random Walk joined in directly on the 6th? Just curious :)


Random Walk was the 18/19-26 (depending on departure day and destination). Orientation started Sept. 5. Random Walk is school supported, NOT school sponsored so it's really not a part of the school year. An optional Pre MBA Accounting class was offered August 27-31. Other than that Booth didn't have anything planned for us. We planned our own stuff. There were a lot of beach days, architecture tours of the city, happy hours, a neon party, and other social events to occupy our time. Students who skipped RW joined in the festivities before those of us who did do a RW left and after we got back.

Sorry! I was just talking to my family to share the good news. I received a call from the admission office about an hour ago. It was basically a call informing me that I've been accepted and a detailed explanation of when I should expect an email, etc. I am still so excited!

It's way too early to throw in the towel. Booth calls all day until about 5 CST. Last year I got my.Call around 4:30 CST. Sit tight.
