Chicago Booth immerses you in a choice-rich environment. How have your interests, leadership experiences, and other passions influenced the choices in your life? (250-word minimum)

Can we use personal circumstances and background to address this question?
For example, I experienced X during this- therefore I am pursuing this goal?

Yes I think most good attempts at this prompt use some form of a personal example and tie it into their current profile and future goals.

The best way to get this info is to ask their admission office. Give them a call and ask them if it is okay. Generally schools would give you a week (or maybe a bit less or more) for your recommenders to turn it in, but some schools are more strict with their deadlines.

Thank you for a super fast reply.

Is that a common question on the applications this year? Have you seen other schools asking for this info? It was a bit odd when Booth asked for the unofficial PDF. Just trying to see if it is a pattern or just a one off Booth-thing.

Yes this has been a common question for all top 10 schools to ask how many time you've taken the GMAT. Annoying quite frankly. Defeats entire point of GMAC hiding number of times you've taken GMAT. Oh well.

Agreed. i think GMAC did not quite think through that one quite well before rolling it out or just selling a dream that is not quite accurate but helps to make money on restoring scores and "feeling" safe to keep retaking or maybe I have just read too many conspiracy theories in the last 24 hrs... :(

I thought the canceled scores they don't show up, so the school would never know?

I did not mean to saw confusion. Canceled scores do not show up on the school reports. However, as reported, schools do ask how many times you have taken the GMAT, mostly without asking for the scores but sometimes an application asks for how many times have you taken the GMAT and what were the scores, which leaves some applicants with scratching their heads. I don't believe Booth asks for scores, only the number of times one has taken the GMAT. Hope it is clear - someone who has submitted an app, feel free to correct me :thumbup:

I think only on your official score report will a cancelled score show. But on the scores sent directly to a school, they don’t show up.

I know people who have taken the test maybe 6-8 times and they’ve still been admitted into top schools. It does show a certain level of determination even if you improve/don’t improve. But Of course they would prefer to see some type of improvement

Yes Booth asks how many times you've taken the exam. So did Wharton, CBS, and I think HBS did too (can't recall). Note, this is all for 2020 matriculation apps. The schools found a loophole and are using it ugh!

I applied within the January 7, 2020 deadline.

What is the tentative interview timeline for international students?
I am planning to take a small trip in February (4 days) - trying to avoid a clash.

How does the interview process look like for international students (located in India)?

Round 2 interview invites start rolling out January 27 and stop January 31. You’ll then have a several week window to interview. You can either select an on-campus interview with a second year student or do an off-campus interview with an alumni. The choice is yours and is weighted equally. Good luck!

Where did you get this information from? I don’t have any emails with concrete dates. Is this an estimate based on last year’s interview invites dates or have you heard this from the AdCom?

Not yet. The rumor that today they would start sending invites is still unconfirmed, as far as I know.

None yet according to Clearadmit. Based off last year's round 2, the interview invites were sent out Jan 24/25.
