I have a question about the Chicago Booth International Exchange programme and I thought I'd make a post to see if anyone has any insight.
Do you know how tough it is to get an exchange at universities like LBS, LSE, Bocconi etc? is there a lot of competition? Is it realistic to think I will be able to definitely do one if I go to Booth??
Any insight would be much appreciated!!
There is a lot of competition for an exchange semester at those schools. But it also depends on the bilateral agreements and the interest from both sides. (There might be 15 who wants to go from Booth to LBS whereas only 5 might like to go from LBS to Booth that semester...)
But, a high GPA should very well be a given in any case... Also maybe your career goals etc. because you'll have to write down an essay or something on why you want to spend a semester there. (It's not India or China so it's most probably be a career-wise choice than a cultural one if you consider the UK or Italy for that matter)
I'm interested in doing a thing like this at my program next year but maybe someone who has done, or in the verge of doing it might be of more help here. Best-
