Oh. Then it is interesting that they gave an update today to those on the waitlist. I would think they would have needed some time between the two events (deposit deadline, and reaching out to waitlist applicants). Unless the deposit deadline was earlier in the day, or if they only have a small amount of individuals on the waitlist??

I have heard Booth is notoriously considerate and careful as to how it manages waitlisted candidates. I think it was probably a push for everyone on the WL (wonder what happened to people who didn't send in any additional materials?) I think this was more of them making sure they held true to their word of after June 5th. A week after this same deadline last year movement started happening from the WL. I do not think there is a small waitlist though...a class size this large it would be risky to have a small waitlist.

You're probably right! And in that case, good luck to all of us through next week! :)

Pretty sure that they pushed everyone off. I don't think there has been a lot of movement since the R3 decision date.

FROM Booth Admissions Blog: Back on Campus
Image
Growing up in a university town, I had always felt the call to return to campus.

There's little else like the energy you feel in such a hub of intellectual curiosity. The air is filled with a communal ambition to expand minds and grow your world. It can turn a small community into a diverse cultural mecca; and a sprawling cosmopolitan center into your close inner circle.

I’m originally from East Lansing, Michigan—home of Michigan State University, where I went to undergrad and graduate school. With a master’s in journalism, I freelanced for several publications in the Detroit area before moving to Chicago in 2006. That’s when I got into marketing and started writing for a real estate company for the next five years. After a quick stint in catalog copywriting, I got a job at Booth in the marketing department, a position I had for just over two years before coming over to Full-Time Admissions.

When I stepped foot on campus at Booth for the first time, I was instantly transported to a place where open, inquisitive thought-leaders mingle freely. All chatting, debating, laughing, and questioning… I was excited by the hum and knew this was a great fit for my long-term career.

With a couple years of marketing Booth under my belt, I jumped at the opportunity to be more hands-on in working with students as well as reaching out to prospective students. In my new role, I’ll be focused on integrated marketing and communications projects for the Full-Time MBA Program and also serve as part of the Admissions Committee. Most notably though, I will work closely with The Booth Experienceteam, a devoted group of 11 students who write, manage, and promote the student blog.

Every day I learn more about what it means to be at Booth, both through working here and through the eyes of the students I work with. It’s a special group of people, and definitely the tightest-knit I've ever encountered, outside family.Which brings me back to my early years, living next door to a Big Ten university. That's where my family planted roots—amidst young scholars and big dreams. Through that community I had unbelievable opportunities as a little kid to see things I would have had to travel elsewhere to major cities like New York, London, Hong Kong… and Chicago to otherwise experience. It is that type of environment I sought after leaving home.


Now as a member of the Admissions team, I’m excited to be back on campus and part of the community that Booth students come to call home.



Best,

Kate

Soliciting Letters of Recommendation: Remember the Rule of 10%  [#permalink]

Show Tags

New post 16 Jun 2015, 17:07
By Adam Hoff, Amerasia Consulting Group

When it comes to recommendations, the first thing that any applicant needs to understand is how they work and, therefore, how they should handle them as part of the process.  We sum up this analysis with something we call “The Rule of 10%”: they count for about 10% of a decision, they should be about 10% of your focus during application season, and you should contribute about 10% of the work that goes into their outcome.  Obviously, these are all gross estimates and generalizations, but it shakes out to about right and its easier to use 10% than “a percentage that is a LOT less than you think it is.”  The bottom line is that most applicants assume a much higher level of importance, they spend far more time thinking and worrying about them, and they get far too involved in their production (the biggest issue of all).  Let’s work through all three:

 

1. Letters of Rec Make up About 10% of the Decision.

There are basically two ways to analyze how recommendations work within an admissions decision – one is to think of it from a process standpoint and the other is to consider the “weight” they carry, more or less, and using the former can help us understand why the answer to the latter is “more or less about 10%.”

Within the process, the typical way in which a letter of recommendation is utilized by an admissions officer is as a verification tool.  A reader will sit down to review a file (in much less time than you think, by the way) and typically work through the “one sheet” (name, biographical data, test scores, undergrad, major, GPA, age, etc.) so they can get the basics.  This frames the expectation going in and is why some of these data points become obsessed over.  A low GMAT tells the reader “long shot” (and that’s the best case scenario).  An extreme age makes them extra sensitive to the appropriateness of the degree.  There are a lot of ways the perception can be framed at this very initial stage, and while nobody’s mind is made up yet, there is definitely an influence on the way the file is read.

Next, it’s the application itself (transcripts are usually skipped or skimmed unless there is something to investigate, like a really low GPA next to a monster GMAT score), which is very quick.  The resume brings to life work experience in a snapshot, which is why you must always construct your resume as a sales tool.  Now, the reader has a much better sense of how qualified this applicant is, how well this person has done professionally, and so forth – the reader can probably prognosticate admissions chances with about 60% accuracy at this point.  The essays are where the variance kicks in.  Some who look good on paper will blow it, by either failing to articulate proper reasons for the degree, or writing bland content that they think is what someone wants to read, or for failing to really connect to the school in question.  Others will rise far above the initial impression with “great” essays (that do accomplish the things above).

Once the essays are completed, the reader is about 90% of the way there and more or less has decided.  The only thing left is to check the recommendation letters to make sure that other people – people who know the applicant better – concur with the assessment.  Again, we want to stress that this is about validating an already-formed opinion.  If you were an experienced professional who prided yourself on bringing in a great class of students every year and you know what works and what doesn’t, are you going to cede the power of making the decision to someone writing a letter?  Of course not, so unless it is an extreme case (like Stanford, where far more stated importance is put on letters of recommendation), you can assume that your letters will account for about 10% of the ultimate decision.  Good letters will help affirm a reader’s decision to “admit” (note: this just means you will get an interview invite at this point, but within admissions offices they flag people as admits until they are demoted down to wait list or deny), is basically what it comes down to.

 

2.  You Should Spend About 10% of Your Time on Letters of Rec.

The second Rule of 10% is how much time you should be spending on the letter of recommendation – and 10% might be generous.  This is a letter written by someone else, after all.  How much time should it really take you?  Not much!  Note though that we did not say 0% of your time.  You do need to take some steps to set your recommender up for success rather than failure.
  • First, you should indeed sit down with the person writing your letter and talk to that individual.  Thank them for taking the time, solicit their advice on schools and even whether now is the right time (even if you are just doing it to make them feel valued), buy them a cup of coffee – whatever you do, make it personal and don’t just email them a one-liner asking them to write you a letter of recommendation.
  • You should also state clearly what you are asking them to do, which is recommend you.  This is not a performance evaluation.  Ask the person in question whether he or she is comfortable recommending you wholeheartedly to business school.  Avoid anyone who caveats the answer or who seems intent on performing a rigorous exercise just to prove how smart they are.  You want someone who is excited to help your chances by extolling your virtues.
  • Finally, you should provide your recommender with some ammunition.  This is admittedly a tricky area, because you neither want to influence the letter too much, nor do you want to overwhelm the recommender with reams of documents that they have to sort through.  Our advice is to give them three items: your resume, a “query letter” that formally asks them for this favor and details some of your key accomplishments and interests (2-3 pages, max), and a sample (if they would like to see one) of a good letter.  From there, your work is done.  Get out of the way and don’t mess with the process.

 

3. You Should Do About 10% of the Work on Your Letters.

This leads us to our third 10% Rule, which is how big your role should be in the production of the letter.  That 10% is already accounted for above – in the prep work to set that person up to succeed.  Any other involvement is not only unethical (some schools will ding you for leaving your fingerprints on the letter), but also counterproductive.  Remember what these are used for: to verify the findings of an experienced admissions professional.  They don’t want to read more essays!  They don’t want to see you embedding more statements about how awesome you are in another part of the application (commonly referred to as “synching the letters”).  All they want is an authentic, positive letter that says, “yes, I vouch that this person is great – if you liked the application, you will like the actual applicant.”

Now, just to make it clear that we’re not in some utopian society where all recommendation letter writers are created equal, let’s discuss quality.  Is there a disparity between a good letter and a great one?  Yes, absolutely.  A great letter is well written, provides specific examples of discussed traits, offers context for its remarks, and – best of all – establishes a baseline from which to assess this one person (“in all my years on Wall Street, during which I have encountered hundreds of MBA candidates, Timmy is the best…”).  However (and this is a key point!), the same disparity does not exist between the value of a great letter versus a good one.  Great letters don’t pull victory from the jaws of defeat and magically make your ding an admit, so the marginal utility of a “great” letter is somewhere between zero and “not much.”  Sure, there are cases of amazing letters playing a big role, but that is unpredictable and rare, meaning you don’t build your application strategy around it.  More to the point, the downside of a manipulated letter is that you can get denied – either on ethical grounds or because the reader simply has no way to validate previous findings (which is their entire objective in reviewing them).

Remember: if the role you play in your own letters of recommendation is greater than 10%, you will not only fail to gain an advantage, you create a great possibility that you will shoot yourself in the foot.  Engaging in this process beyond 10% of the work is basically minimal upside, big downside.

If you can take this tip to heart, you will create less stress for everyone involved and allow the letters of recommendation to serve the very basic function they are intended for.

Gearing up for a Summer of Discovery  [#permalink]

FROM Booth Admissions Blog: Gearing up for a Summer of Discovery
Image
In less than a week, the Summer Business Scholars (SBSP) Class of 2015 will embark on a path of discovery at Booth. After months of reviewing applications and carefully planning our program, we cannot wait to finally meet our 65 scholars who will spend three weeks on our campus learning business principles and gaining hands-on experience before starting their careers.



This year’s class—hailing from 25 different countries from Bulgaria to Brazil, from India to Ireland—comes to us this summer with a variety of experiences unrivaled by any other SBSP class. With undergraduate majors as diverse as biomedical engineering, economics, and art history, each of our scholars will bring a unique perspective and each will in turn gain something distinctive from the Summer Business Scholars Program. Scholars will establish foundational knowledge in accounting, finance, and marketing. They will also grow confidence in their leadership potential and strengthen their negotiation skills. They will gain insights into career opportunities they haven’t previously imagined through visits to Chicago-based companies and exercises in networking with professionals from a variety of industries.

The city of Chicago will prove to be a vibrant backdrop to their overall experience. Scholars will have a chance to explore the city cruising on an architectural boat tour, visiting the city’s historical venues, attending summer festivals, and snacking on as many Chicago-style specialties that one can digest in three weeks.



While holistically crafted, SBSP is designed to give each scholar the opportunity to create an impactful experience and discover his or her potential. We invite you to follow that journey of discovery on Facebook and Instagram #BoothSBSP starting on July 11th.



Best,

Kylie

FROM Booth Admissions Blog: 2015-16 Essay and Application
Image
Creating an MBA application that allows applicants to be authentic and honest is something we strive for at Booth. The essay is where we really get a feel for who someone is, how they think, their distinct viewpoint, and how they can contribute to the community.

While this is an opportunity for us to learn about you, we also want to share a more complete picture of what our community is all about. We value individuality and diverse experiences because it inspires collaborative thinking and the unique learning environment here at Chicago Booth.



In the spirit of diverse perspectives and challenging the status quo—even our own status quo—we are excited to prompt applicants to think in a different way when responding to this year's essay.



The 2015-16 application is now available on the Full-Time Admissions section of our website. We are eager to start the application season and look forward to getting to know you better though your essays and applications.

Also, our admissions team and current students will be hosting events around the world this summer. We hope to meet you in person and hear about what you want to get out of your MBA experience. 

We look forward to learning about you.



Sincerely,

Kurt Ahlm

The MBA Recruiting Process – Insights from Darden ’15 Grad and CEO of RelishMBA

Hello from the RelishMBA team, and congratulations on being admitted to the MBA Class of 2017! My name is Sarah, and I’m a recent Darden School of Business graduate who founded RelishMBA, an online recruiting platform built specifically for the business school recruiting market. As a recent grad who works full-time in the MBA recruitment space, I wanted to share some recruiting advice and tips to help you prepare for arriving on campus at Booth.

The first thing to be aware of is that MBA recruiting is a long and intense process. Recruiting activities begin quickly once you’re on campus and they take up a huge amount of your time and energy for most of your first year. While virtually all top MBA students have great jobs available to them, finding those jobs can be frustrating and stressful, with relevant information often hard to find and a complex networking process that can be tough to effectively manage. I started RelishMBA to address these problems and make the process more efficient for both students and employers.

The summer is a great time to get started with recruiting processes (while you don’t have to worry about school, student clubs, social life, and the dozens of other activities that fill up your time during first year). Luckily, there are a few things you can do to prepare before school starts in August: Relax. Explore. Prepare.

Relax – business school is a big change from the working world; take a bit of time off. You deserve it and you’ll need the break!

Explore – In your time relaxing, begin checking out what industries and companies recruit MBAs. This is something RelishMBA helps with. Sign-up at RelishMBA.com to begin exploring employer’s company pages on MBA Careers specific for your school (“day in the life” alumni testimonials, on-campus presence, key points of contact, etc.).

Prepare – And lastly, get your resume ready. Below are some tips from my experience.
It’s also important to remember that once you’re on campus, you’ll be networking with recruiters and alumni frequently – and RelishMBA will help you here too, through relationship management tools that make it easy to stay on top of your networking game. Have any questions? Reach out anytime at recruit@relishmba.com.

Resume Tips:

1) Writing your resume is your first Marketing assignment

Your resume is essentially a one-page advertisement designed to sell your brand to employers. But as your first year marketing class will tell you, marketing is about a lot more than just a fancy design and a few well-placed buzzwords. Think about your audience (i.e. who will be reading your resume? Finance recruiters? Consultants? Marketers? Others?) and how you are positioning yourself with that audience (i.e. what work experiences would be most relevant or interesting to the recruiters reading your resume?).

For example, if you’re headed up to Wall Street, focus on the more quantitatively rigorous parts of your work experience, and try to make sure that your resume as a whole reflects an interest in and passion for finance and its associated disciplines. Future consultants will want to highlight problem-solving and analytical thinking. Marketers could talk about leading cross-functional teams or point out examples of especially effective communication.

And if you are not sure what you want to do, don’t sweat it – there are lots of you out there, and it’s no big deal for the next few weeks or months. But regardless of your eventual industry or function targets, remember: your resume is not just a chronicle of your past work achievements; it is an advertisement designed to effectively sell you and your brand to recruiters.

2) Be concise but specific

This is one of the more difficult parts of honing your resume: providing specific examples of relevant work accomplishments in a way that a recruiter can easily digest in a few seconds. Try starting each bullet point with a strong action word. Instead of saying something like “Helped to more than double sales during tenure in catchment area,” try something like “Launched blogger outreach program that increased web traffic by 72% and increased sales by 120%”.

These sorts of hard numbers are really helpful, especially since many recruiters will spend only a few seconds looking at your resume and those numbers stand out on the page. So it’s also important to be sure that your bullet points can be read and processed easily. And if you don’t have a lot of specific numbers to add to your resume, it’s still important to be specific about your accomplishments and to pick your words wisely.

3) Add some flair

You should be careful with how much flair you add to your resume, but it’s a good idea to think of ways to set yourself apart from the competition. The “Personal” section at the bottom of your resume, where you list hobbies, activities, and interests, is an easy place to hook a recruiter (or break the ice in an interview). Only mention things that are truly a part of your life, but still consider your audience and which of your hobbies or experiences might be of interest to the recruiters reading your resumes. Once you reach campus, you’ll hear plenty of stories about students who were able to land first or even second-round interviews largely on the basis of what seem like minor resume items.

Other ways to add flair:

-Were you kind of a big deal in college? It’s worthwhile to mention any particularly important or impressive extracurriculars from your undergrad days (particularly leadership roles), and including club affiliations and other school-specific positions can be a good idea once you get onto campus

-Recruiters are looking to hire real people, not business robots. Make sure your resume – the accomplishments you choose to mention, the structure and content of the Personal section – reflects your personality.

4) Don’t be careless

This is the part where we tell you that a few people every year submit resumes with misspelled words or mismatched fonts or other significant but easily avoidable mistakes, and that you could be one of those people if you’re not careful, and you think “I’d never be that much of an idiot,” and then you send your resume to McKinsey or Google with your name spelled wrong at the top. Don’t be that person.
Seriously, just get a friend to read it. Several friends. Have a resume-reading party. But don’t spell your name wrong.

Have any questions? Reach out anytime at recruit@relishmba.com

Sincerely,
RelishMBA Team

FROM Booth Admissions Blog: Booth Coming To a City Near You
Image
Summer in Chicago is fantastic, but so is a summer packed with travel plans, new experiences, and meeting new people around the world.

This year students, alumni, and admissions directors will host events in 50+ cities around the globe from July through the end of September. If you’re considering applying this year, we invite you attend one of three different types of informational events to experience Booth firsthand:

Full-Time Admissions Information Sessions: These events are designed to give you an in-depth overview of the MBA Program and illustrate the entrepreneurial way that students approach their education. Information Sessions are hosted by an Admissions Director and members of the local alumni community. With a networking reception following the formal presentation, these events are an excellent opportunity for you to connect with others who live and work in your city.

Student-Hosted Events: In the coming weeks, there will be several Student-Hosted Events in cities all over the globe. In addition to internships in new cities, adventure travel, and hometown visits, students spend part of their summer break hosting these informal gatherings for prospective students. Find an event in your city and RSVP to spend an evening with Booth students in a casual and fun atmosphere. There are no formal presentations at these events, just great conversation about #TheBoothExperience.

Educational Fairs and Forums: Talk with Booth admissions at annual MBA events sponsored by organizations like Forté Foundation, QS World MBA, and the MBA Tour. This is a great way to meet like-minded prospective MBAs, as well as staff and alumni from Chicago Booth.

As always, we also encourage you to plan a campus visit this summer or fall to get a glimpse of campus life and our community.



No matter which events you attend, we encourage you to come ready with the questions that are important to you. We wish you the best of luck in your business school search and encourage you to reach out to us with any questions.



We look forward to seeing you around the world this summer.



All the Best,

Kurt Ahlm
