Hi all,
I am planning to apply to Booth in R1. Have been working on the essays.
Can anyone share their experience with Booth essays? Or any advice that you can offer?

Thanks a lot!! :)

Hi! I am working on this essay too and my consultant says it is looking pretty good, so I believe him :)

What I did was:
-First, I made a list of every characteristic, program, activity or class that interest me from Booth.
-Then, I tried to find a common topic, for example: social development, entrepreneurship, international experience, etc, so that I could relate my interests to one of the photos. Based on the theme, I chose the picture.
-Then, I wrote the essay, relating everything to the topic of the picture I chose. There were some important facts I could not relate to the topic, so I am writing about some of them in the optional essay.
-Finally, what I am doing right now is trying to convert my essay to a power point, making a more visual version of it but maintaining the essence I want to transmit.

Are you planning on doing a power point too? I wanted to just go with the classic essay, but everyone I know who is applying is making a power point, so I was not sure.

Hey thanks for the reply!
I too wanted to go with a traditional essay however my consultant suggested to do a PowerPoint! The problem i am facing is what question to answer with one of the images. Are you answering 'why MBA' or 'how will you contribute to Booth' ?

I am focusing more on my contributions to Booth but also giving some background, which I think could work as a 'why an MBA'.

Hi Karol404, Yes this essay can be a doozy... complex in its simplicity! We have counselors at StratusPrep with deep expertise about Booth and also strong experience coaching people on responding to this prompt. Here's an article by one of our Booth Counselors that may also help:

And if someone else needs a counselor- and many people for Booth applications are using a counselor... you may want to give us a call to find out how we can help. Free consult link is here:

Good luck to all of you!

A consultant recommended a PowerPoint as well. Think about it, would you rather review hundreds of essays or presentations? :P I was advised to lean very heavily on the visuals within the slides, showcasing a story mostly about me but tying into Booth's values.
