I don’t think an aggregation of unreliable rankings makes it any more reliable but.... what do I know? :-)

I think Booth has been doing well but it is likely still no HBS in Europe or Asia where nobody has heard about either Booth or U of Chicago.

PS. Please don’t kill me....

Haha, that’s why I would argue it makes unreliable, more reliable! Taking several rankings, that have different criteria, and combining them into one.

If you’re going with solely brand strength overseas, it’s hard to beat “Harvard” and “MIT”, but MIT hasn’t topped a reliable or unreliable ranking before.

Global brand makes schools such as Yale and Sloan (MIT) receive much more applications than other similarly ranked schools with similar class size.... and I don’t blame the applicants.

Of course the argument is that if you are applying for an MBA job, your hiring manager will definitely know of Booth in Asia or in Europe but family, friends, and some co-workers may not recognize it and would value Yale over Booth, Kellogg, Ross or Fuqua.

A Friend who went to Stanford for her undergrad, told me a funny story about her Canadian family feeling bad for her that she was not going to the U of BC. They suggested she go for a year and then try to transfer. She happily graduated from Stanford ;-)

Funny enough they just made a pretty meaningful correction to the faulty average of rankings. How do you make a mistake while averaging? Oh boy.

PS. I tend to trust USNews methodology more than others...

I can’t trust something that makes multiple schools tie every year! Nothing is ever a tie, especially in something like this... maybe a small margin, but not a tie. Three way tie last year?! Laughable.

Ha ha. I don’t know if I am so opposed to ties but I think it is a bit odd when so many programs are tied.... I forgot about that aspect of USNews.

Hi,

¿Is it true that if they want to admit you, admissions usually calls your office in order to do some checks?

Never heard of that. Highly unlikely.

I assume you’re asking if the school can check on your submitted information? They will likely only do this once you’ve been admitted.

Yo man - some people on reddit are saying that only certain people (Small percent of admits) get a call on the 4th, is that correct?

Did you see that in the r/MBA subreddit? I haven't seen anything there. Could be possible they don't call everyone

That’s exactly where i saw it! I think the post was deleted tho, can’t find it anymore. I would think its probably hard to call 300+ people in one day. So i guess safest bet is to just wait until the 5th...

Booth’s tradition is to call ALL admitted applicants. If you’re admitted in round 1 this year, expect a call tomorrow. Calling 300 people in a day isn’t hard. They can easily divide between ADCOM and 2nd years, and have all day to make the calls.

Big Mike with the solid info as always. That makes total sense, just already trying to do some mental gymnastics if I don't hear anything the first day. Also, just to be clear, calls would be Wednesday the 4th not tomorrow right :)

Calls on the 4th (admitted). Portal updates on the 5th (denied and waitlisted).

What time do they start calling from? I saw last year in Clear Admit the first was around 9:30am, but wasn't sure if that was Chicago time or local time

Mike any idea how late they go with calls? 5pm EST? Feel like it was 5pm CST for interview invites (I had already left the office before I got the email).

Super hyped for everyone in here who will get in, extremely nervous already for myself hahah. Didnt think I had a good interview, but I think my Booth essay was the best one I wrote of all.

Fingers crossed for everyone! :please :please :please
