Yeah, I agree with your interpretation wraider84. I was referring to the part of the instructions that says:
Quote:
To gain a better sense of who you are and how you think, we’re looking for brief responses to informal (and hopefully fun) questions.


That said, I think it's definitely a good idea to highlight your other strengths through different stories/examples than those in other areas of your application while maintaining a consistent tone.

Thanks for the insight and best of luck with the interview/short answers![/quote]

Ah ok yes I was just looking in the actual area with the questions, your quote is from the interview invite which is helpful. Best of luck to you as well

Hi everyone! I can't figure out if it has been discussed already, but how is Booth's acceptance rate post interview? I'm on what would typically be considered the lower side of the ideal GMAT for an Indian applicant, so wondering if I should get my hopes up.

It’s about 50/50. Quick math is Booth gets roughly 4500 total applicants. Of those they interview about 40%, that’s 1800. Of those 1800, roughly 900 get accepted. Booth’s acceptance is a little over 20%, but you get the point.


Isn't the size of Booth's class roughly 600, translating into about 1 in 3 interviewees getting accepted?

Yep. Admit does not equal enrolled. Latest I can see, 983 admitted and 591 enrolled based on US News reporting.

fatmike I received my interviewer assignment last Friday (almost exactly 72 hours after I received my invite), so I'd imagine if you received your invite on Friday, you should be getting something today.

Fortunately I don't have to travel for my interview since my alum is local.

Thank you for the good information! For those of you who have completed your interview, please take the time to write up an interview debrief.

Admissions decisions come out December 5, however, all admitted students should receive a phone call the day prior, on December 4.

Experience: Don't get hyper reading the debrief below. The overall interview was very conversational and I didn't even realize when 50 mins past by. Just make sure to know your story well (resume specifically) and you should sail through easily.

Booth Interview by a current Student

⁃ Tell me something which is not there on the resume
⁃ Walk me through your professional experience
⁃ Why do you want to do an MBA now and why not two-three years down the line
⁃ ST and LT goal
⁃ Questions on leading a team
-> how do you manage leading a big team of {#} people
-> how do you make the offshore employees keep motivated considering the cultural and time difference
⁃ Ever had a difference of opinion with the team members and how did you handle it ?
⁃ Favorite means of communication at work
⁃ How will you contribute to the class
⁃ One of the volunteering efforts I had mentioned in my resume was something atypical. She had put a star mark on it and asked me to detail that. This opened up as a good story conversation
⁃ How do I plan to commute to Chicago and if my family is okay with doing this (getting away every weekend)
⁃ Weaknesses that I want to cover while at Booth
⁃ Open questions for her (I had only prepared one question and other one I made up while waiting for the interview)
Takeaway - should have prepared a little more questions for her
⁃ In the last I asked about a famous Professor Raghu Rajan and that I’m looking forward for his class as he had been the Governor Of Reserve Bank of India. The interviewer liked this info and added this to her sheet that I wanted to attend this particular class. I think it was a good stint and kind of covered my lack of questions for her.

The interviewer was making notes for every answer I was giving. I couldn’t read the gibberish but I guess it was the key points like my ST goals, volunteering efforts, Professors I’m interested in etc.

Give it a full 72 hours, 3 business days. So you should be getting something today. Also, since we all know Booth’s email system is spectacular, if you’ve been matched and the email didn’t go out, check the portal. If you click the interview tab, once you’ve been matched your interviewer’s name will show up there.

Nope, nothing there either. Going to be patient then- I guess finding interviewers in East Africa is not going to be an easy task.

Is anyone else also waiting to be matched with alumni in the off-campus interview process?
I received my invite last Friday but haven't been matched yet.
Has anyone gotten in touch with the Admissions Office to expedite the process?

Might be time to reach out to them. You should’ve been matched within 3 business days of submitting your off campus request. If you log into your account and click on interview, does it have the interviewer’s name there?
