Strong profile - well done for being here. However, your readiness to apply in R1 heavily hinges on what research have you done on Booth, including but not limited to speaking with students. Do not under-estimate the importance of your homework.

Booth seeks applicants who embody academic and professional excellence while having the potential to make a positive impact on the community. You excel in several key areas, including your academic background, professional history, awards, recognitions, volunteer work and your GRE score, especially the solid Q170. In my opinion, there is no reason to defer your application to the next round.

However, you should be aware that top-tier schools like Booth have very high standards for applications and interviews. To present a compelling application, you need to understand exactly what Booth values and weave those aspects into your narrative with concrete examples. For example, explaining why studying at Booth is more in line with your vision than at any other school can be critical to gaining admission from within the pool of highly competent applicants.

I encourage you to connect with current students and alumni to gain firsthand insights and develop your own perspective on how Booth and you can mutually benefit each other. There are numerous compelling reasons you can highlight, including the distinguished faculty (know who all?) and the tailored, flexible curriculum (how will you use it?), to underscore your thoughtful approach in selecting a business school.

I recommend that you make the most of the next two weeks and then seek guidance from an expert to assess whether your application is at the appropriate level.

Do not hesitate to reach out if you need help navigating your unique circumstances in the B School admissions process. We do not cap discussion hours for our applicants

Hi Guys,
Please is it true that Booth usually rejects candidates above 30 and recommend them for the Executive program instead?

Hello ORES,

I hope you are doing well. To answer your question, it is not true that the Booth MBA program usually rejects candidates above 30 and recommends them for the Executive program instead. Booth does not have an age discrimination policy, and they consider each applicant on a case-by-case basis. In fact, Booth has a diverse student body, with students of all ages and backgrounds.

If you are over the age of 30 and you are interested in applying to Booth, I encourage you to do so. Depending on your needs and goals, you can apply to either the full-time MBA program or the Executive MBA program.

We offer a limited number of complimentary profile evaluations each week . We match you with the students and alums of top B-Schools according to your background and target schools. In this call, the experts will try to dig out your USP for top B-schools and provide you with honest feedback on your profile and chances to your target schools.

Hello jammerroy,

I hope you are doing good. Your profile looks good on the surface. You have a strong profile for the Booth School of Business at the University of Chicago. Your academic record is excellent, with a high GPA in your undergraduate degree. Your 10th and 12th-grade scores also demonstrate your consistent academic performance. While your GRE score is decent, it's slightly below the average score for admitted students at Booth. If you have the time and opportunity, you might consider retaking the GRE to improve your score.

Speaking about your work experience. Your experience at Goldman Sachs, especially your role in leading high-stakes consumer projects and managing a team, will be viewed very positively by the admissions committee. Two promotions to Vice President within four years is impressive. Your experience in both technology and private equity divisions adds diversity to your profile.

Your involvement in community service, volunteering, and marathon running shows your commitment to giving back to society and your ability to balance extracurricular activities and professional responsibilities. Initiatives like setting up a programming club and co-authoring a research paper demonstrate leadership and academic engagement. Your post-MBA career goals in Product Management in the FinTech space align well with Booth's strengths in finance and entrepreneurship. Your technical background and experience in consumer projects make you a strong candidate for this path.

Your application essays and letters of recommendation will be crucial in showcasing your personality, achievements and fit with Booth's culture. Be sure to invest time in crafting compelling essays and securing strong recommendations.

Overall, your profile is strong, and you have a good chance of being competitive in the Booth application process. If you believe you can submit a strong application by the Round 1 deadline, you should go for it. However, if you feel that you need more time to improve your GRE score or fine-tune other aspects of your application, consider applying in Round 2. Ultimately, the quality of your application and how well you convey your unique story and goals will determine your admission chances.

Good luck with your application!

Can you share where you heard this? that seems pretty low. I feel like they would be more inclined to say this if they felt your age would impact ability to be competitive for your goal job, or they feel uncertain about you finding an internship/offer, since that isnt part of the picture for EMBA.

Hi everyone, does anyone’s application portal showing GMAT Score Report awaiting? I remember, before submission, the application portal only asked for a self-reported score and no place to upload an unofficial report. Do we need to send the official report directly through GMAC before application deadline (I didn’t)?

Or if I send the official report now through GMAC, is it too late?

Hi @zandro, I don’t think you should worry about this.
Booth clearly stated on their portal that while self-reported test scores are flagged until the official scores are received, your application will still be reviewed.

You should login to your app portal to confirm this information

Hi, actually you can send it across now as well. In any case, they asked for the self reported scores only. But just to be safe, you can send it across now. It will also help in verification!

Thank you all. I’m clear now. I misunderstood when I read Booth’s note. I thought ‘’submit’’ meant ‘’submit unofficially report’’. They meant the self typing scores and percentiles. So, I’m like over thinking.
