Chicago Booth - Admission Trends!



This weekend I spent some time on studying stats of previous Booth applicants to analyze admission trends and acceptance chances of applicants at Booth. This analysis is based on our accumulated forum data of applicants. I have analysed the forum data of Booth applicants from 2012 to 2016 to determine acceptance chances by GMAT score, admission rounds, industry, age, country, etc.

The data used for this analysis is self-reported, so it's advised to use findings of this analysis with discretion. They are meant to give only a general idea of admission scenario at Booth. Don't presume that these findings will hold true all the time.

I welcome any comments, opinions, suggestions or anything else that you might have to say about the findings of this analysis.


YOY Acceptance Rate and Avg GMAT of Applicants



Sample Size: 2517 Applicants

Acceptance Rate by GMAT Score



  • Booth is indeed one of the toughest bschools to get in to and the chart below clearly shows the intensity of competition.
  • Applicants who have GMAT scores in the range of 740 - 770 have highest chance of acceptance, almost 40%.
  • Among the 1698 applicants that we considered for this chart, around 91% had GMAT score of 700 or above and 71% had GMAT score of 720 or above. This finding tells us that those with lower than 700 GMAT need to have strong profile and convincing story for applying to Booth.
  • Acceptance rate of Booth applicants after interview is 49%.

Sample Size: 1356 Applicants

Acceptance Rate by Admission Round



Sample Size: 2512 Applicants

Acceptance Rates of Applicants in Different Age Groups



Sample Size: 908 Applicants

Acceptance rates of applicants from various industries



  • The first chart - line chart - shows acceptance rates of applicants from various industries and the pie chart next to it shows industry-wise allocation of applicants.

Sample Size: 1114 Applicants

Acceptance Rates of Applicants from Various Regions

As I said earlier, we welcome your views, counter-views, suggestions, etc on the analysis. Thank you!

MIT Sloan - Admission Trends!!




Image



Acceptance Rate by GMAT Score



  • MIT Sloan is one of the toughest bschools to get in to and the chart below clearly shows the intensity of competition. At best one can have 27% chance of acceptance.
  • Among the 1214 applicants that we considered for this chart, around 88% had GMAT score of 700 or above and 66% had GMAT score of 720 or above..
  • Gap between interview invitation rate and acceptance rate in considerably small for applicants who have sub 700 GMAT score. This finding tells us that Sloan is selective in choosing applicants below 700 GMAT for the interview, but those who are invited have much higher chance of acceptance, almost 50%.

Sample Size: 1214 Applicants

I am not able to view most of the charts in this thread. Error thumbnail appears in place of the images.
Is anyone facing a similar problem? Is there another source to view this post?

Just checked all the graphs and they look fine to me. Make sure you are using the latest version of Chrome.

Hi Narenn,
How do you see the next admissions cycle (21 intake) play out considering the impact of Covid-19 and also the economic downturn because of it. It would be extremely helpful if you could highlight the impact on Asian schools like ISB and NUS(Specifically on the size of the applicant pool, weightage of the GRE, potential GRE/GMAT cutoffs) .

Thanks!
