I had my interview W/ the class visit about 1.5 weeks ago. The ethnicity split was probably 60% asian, 30% white. And 10% minorities. Did you guys also had a similar split? If so, Im a little fudged... LOL

You're over-reading it haha. I've been doing interview greetings on campus for a few days and it's not that mix. I can't say too much, but I wouldn't worry too much about it based on some things I've heard.



Thanks Gunster!! Im just a little worried because I’m an AA female. Looking at the reports it seems that minorities only make about 23-24% of the class. Thinking out loud Asians probably take 15-16% of that, meaning that AA/Hispanics/Native Americans need to fiercely fight for 7-8%... ugh :(

I think if you take out race/ethnicity, if you’re a spectacular applicant you’ll get in. I wouldn’t stress about things you can’t control. Booth is trying to shape the class with difference folks from all different backgrounds and experiences.

Hi guys!

Any idea how the Ad Coms weigh the interview assessments? Concerned because I'm not too proud of my performance during my interview. Is it a make-or-break thing or just another leg that may not be considered critical enough if they like you otherwise?

I’ve been told it is just one part of the application. It turns more critical for borderline applicants though (silver work experience, low GMAt/GPA, etc)

Oh boy. I think for an Indian applicant, my 710 would be considered borderline for Booth.

Why do you think it didn’t go well? Maybe send a thank you email and gauge response. At the same time, there’s nothing you can do now. I would just let it be. I’m sure you will get in!!!

I don't think my answers were very structured or concise. I feel like I was all over the place during my interview and didn't really make an impact. But yeah you are right. No point stressing over it. Might as well just wait. Thanks for your supportive words!

Don’t think it matters much either way. I mean they could respond to you and act like it went well and just score you low on Booth’s grading criteria submission. So I don’t think it matters much.

Do you have any insights on the “grading scale”? Is it just recommend/not recommend, or are there levels or recommendation?

I’m not actually sure. Any current or alum able to answer? I would assume there’s some sort of grading scale they use, but I’m not certain.

As far i understand there are 4 this they report you on. Interpersonal skills, interest at booth, clarity of goals and one more. So their input i believe is subjective. Perhaps some marking happens on each of these areas that adds up to the total score

That makes sense. I’d assume the interview is just another way for them to assess you, like the additional essays. I don’t think it’s as make or break as people assume because it’s not done by a direct member of adcom and since there are so many variables between locations and alum.

Im not sure that’s true. I’m part of MLT and what I gathered from adcoms is that Booth is one of the few schools that is completely “student driven”, so their interview insight is very important for admissions. Hence why you get people with 760-770’s get rejected all the time

So you think the interview is as make or break and as heavily weighted as HBS or Stanford?
