Turnaround time on decision - Chicago Booth [#permalink] New post 31 Mar 2010, 09:20
Anyone out there an admit or denial from Chicago's evening MBA program? I'm curious how long it typically takes them to inform you of a decision once you've been interviewed?

I'm so anxious!

I asked and they said you typically hear back 4-6 weeks after application submission.

GMAT: 660 (38 Quant, 42 Verbal, 6 AWA) - I wrote an additional essay on the low quant score
Experience: fund of hedge fund analyst for major French bank
Industry: Finance (hedge funds)
ECs: pediatric volunteer at Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, marathoner, CFA (plus lots more in undergrad)
Interviewed?/When: Tuesday, March 30th
Submitted App?/When: Thursday, March 11th
Accepted?/Dinged?: Accepted - received call on Thursday, April 15

My story was a little different because I applied, interviewed and subsequently denied from Chicago Booth's full-time MBA program. Most of my essays for the evening program were therefore focused on what had changed in my story, and why the evening program made sense for me.

But I just re-read your initial message and it seems you were asking about the weekend program. To clarify, I did not apply for weekend but rather evening. Sorry for the confusion! I might not be the best comparison...

PC80... your profile looks a lot like mine!!!!
You only JUST submitted the app and it is close to the deadline.... so it might take a while!!!
Not to rip on Booth or anything.. but alumni usually DO have a bland look!
You probably did great!

so they contacted you right away to interview?
