Aren’t admit decisions given on rolling basis rather than on 21st March itself (for R2) ?

Not to get too far ahead of myself here... But does anyone know how long we have to accept an offer after R2 decisions are released on 3/21? Either based on R1 this year or from R2 last year? I couldn't find anything on their website. Thanks in advance!


In R1 this year deposit deadline is 6 February 2019


For anyone else that's curious... I asked the Admissions Office when I was on campus to interview today. They said you typically have 3 - 4 weeks to accept.

I submitted mine ~2 minutes before the deadline but it's showing as the next day! Not sure if I should be worried. Did this happen to anyone else?


The deadline on the website is stated as CT (Central Time), but the application portal is running on ET (Eastern Time) which is one hour ahead. That's why.


Thanks very much - wondering if admissions knows this (in which case I can stop worrying) and if anyone else faced the same issue


Sent an email to Adcom about it. I also faced the same issue. I guess they will respond once they get back to the office.

I was denied from the Weekend program today. My main weakness was GMAT and GPA but had some hope that my professional experience and interview would help move me forward. While I’m sure most of the reject letters are generic, it also suggested possibly looking at GSAL programs at Booth to help strengthen my academic profile. Anyone have insight on GSAL programs and how that could help with reapplication? At this point, I probably won’t reapply to Booth, but curious. The inference from admissions was that my financial accounting grades sucked and that GSALs would boost confidence that I could handle Booth.

Seattlenatve what was your GMAT and GPA? if you have low grades they will overlook that if you have a good test score. Have you explored GRE?
Before GSAL I might try GRE and MBA Math if you choose to reapply - have you applied to Kellogg PT? Hopefully not yet.

3.0 GPA and 620 GMAT. I knew my chances were slim to none but wanted to give it a shot before I applied to local University, which is just fine by me. I’m an executive and have over 62 direct reports. I was hoping my CFA designation would allow them to overlook my low quant. Unfortunately my schedule doesn’t allow for Kellogg or that would have been an option for sure. Thanks for the insight!

I've gotten people into both Kellogg and Booth with that exact GMAT score, and much less management experience. Not sure about their grades but they didn't have 4.0. Before you resign to local University, whatever that is, I do encourage you to take the GRE, there is a mock exam that is free on the Manhattan prep site…. because I have found that a lot of my clients do a lot better on that exam. Also GRE averages are unpublished and so when you use that test it's kind of a wild card. At the same time I would urge you to do MBA math to prove to them that you have the quant skills to survive the courses. Did you receive a one on one feedback session?

This is fixable. Unless you have to do an MBA this second I would ask them if MBA Math would work - if not, take GRE.

Didn't receive a response yet. I guess it would be better if multiple persons reached out to them.

Has anyone been participating in the Live Chats that Booth offers and if so, do you know how to access the transcripts of chats after the session is over?

I've attended a couple. It can be useful to hear student perspectives on your questions, and to read answers to other questions you might not be thinking about.
A listing of past and future chats can be found here: https://www.chicagobooth.edu/programs/f ... line-chats It looks like transcripts have only been posted for a handful of chats, beginning in October. Hopefully others become available soon.

I checked my application and my application submission date is also a day late (1/4 vs 1/3). I think it should be okay.

Hi @bee2021 I think the following poster has you covered but never hesitate to reach out to their marketing coordinator for this stuff.
Also, I encourage you to review this, part of my research respository, transcripts from the 2018 Forte virtual conference. This is for women but honestly most of the information is gender neutral. https://www.dropbox.com/s/x49hgam8yr5ix ... .docx?dl=0

Last day for on campus interviews is 2/27. Not sure about off campus - I believe the last day is 2/18.
