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.

Had my interview on-campus with a 2nd year student. My interviewer & the student in the waiting area said that Booth interviews were supposed to be relaxed and would probably be the easiest interview you have. I would agree that it was a relaxed interview.
Same questions as everyone else, my interview lasted about an hour (time goes so fast)!.

The interviewer really wanted to understand my job choices/transitions/future goals. Wanted to know how I would add value to the campus and classes. A couple leadership behavioral questions. Time for me to ask questions. Pretty basic interview format, no crazy questions for me. Felt more like a conversation than an interview.

The interviewer said this year is really competitive as far as applications go. Best of luck to everyone - one month til decision!

Top10, when did you have your interview? I had mine last week and it was eerily similar to what you have described. Maybe the 2nd year students are told to stick to a script of sorts.

December 18th/19th cannot come fast enough...

Did anyone get a chance to get the interviewer's business card? Anyone sending thank you emails?

If you have the contact information, always send a thank-you note. Doesn't have to be a novel, just a quick note to say thanks.

Had my interview in Calcutta, India today. My interviewer told me that the adcom/ another alum will contact me for a second round of interview. :o Booth website says that we will have "only one interview".
Any idea?

Thanks!

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

I had my interview on 11/17 and my application still doesn't say that my interview feedback was submitted. Anyone else in the same boat?

I had my on-campus interview a couple of days ago. Very conversational, with pretty much the same questions that people have posted here. Oh man, the next two and a half weeks are going be really really long.

Good luck everyone!

Live Essay Writing Workshop, presented by Admissionado


Sigh. The MBA Application essays. Who thought it was a good idea to ask people to write 2000 words before they even get INTO school? Turns out, it doesn’t matter, because someone did… and now you have to come up with the most compelling and memorable essays about leadership that you can. And then do it again for every school you apply to.

It’s not easy, but this upcoming event should help. Submit your MBA Application essay to have an opportunity to have it reviewed for free by the team at Admissionado. Three essays will be selected, and if you are one of the lucky ones, you will have the opportunity to go through your essay with Phillip Herring (admissions expert and CBS MBA) in a live session. You will need to be OK with sharing your essay with attendees (don’t worry – we’ll keep your name/private info out of it), and available and online at the time of the event to chat it up with Phillip. Even if you aren’t selected, listen in, because there will still be plenty of essay advice to go around.

Submit your essay to lauren@admissionado.com by Monday, December 3. You will find out if you are selected by Wednesday, December 5. Then join the live event on Thursday, December 6 at 6pm PST. Register Now [FREE!]

Did anyone goto the info session on November 29th? I am scheduled to visit campus this Friday, December 7th. I have been to the Gleacher Center several times, but I have never been to the Hyde Park campus, and I'm a Chicago native! lol

Hello, I would really appreciate the expert/peer opinion on this:

I am applying to Booth and Wharton in R2 - both require 2 recommendations. I am an entrepreneur in a brick and mortar business with a total 10 years of work experience, the last 5 of which were spent starting and growing my business successfully. Prior to that, I worked as an IT management consultant with a well-known firm.

I have the option of choosing 1) My Auditor/Financial adviser/mentor from my current business, 2) A senior customer representative from my current business or 3) My Practice partner from my previous consulting job as my recommenders. I am planning to choose the first 2, but that makes my application pretty uni-dimensional as my essays also focus on my business venture. My practice partner from consulting can bring a different perspective on my managerial/leadership skills (examples of my leading teams internationally across different countries). On the other hand, if I choose the partner from my previous job, it makes the recommendation content 5 years old. That makes the recommendation's current relevance questionable.

So, I am pondering over whom to choose as my recommenders. Would be grateful for your inputs.

Thanks.

I would choose recommenders based on how well the recommender knows you and the recency of the professional experience. In my view this is more important
than breadth of content, especially if the previous interviewer knew you 5 years ago.

You can balance this in your short-answers, CV and essays by making sure you mention the IT consulting experience in detail.

I know it is not relevant for the final decision, but I am just wondering if anyone of you has not received any update on the application since the interview invitation. I see nothing related to an interview feedback submitted, and my test scores are still on Awaiting!
