Guys, it's still 9.30 AM in Chicago now, did you expect them to send invitations at night? Be patient.

Thanks for posting! When did you submit? Trying to see if by "rolling" they mean chronological.

It was totally random last year. More like they give everyone a stack to make a decision on by 10/16 some adcom's are proactive and others leave it til the last minute. No different than us at work. This is why like 40% of the invites were reported on the very last day.

I wouldn't worry about it at all.

I submitted in the morning of 9/17. My recs were all submitted prior to that and my GMAT was verified - not sure if that matters.

I got an email saying that my application status has changed. Then I logged in and saw a "status update" which was a letter telling me that shortly an interview request form would be available for me to fill out to sign up for either an on-campus or off-campus interview:

On-campus interviews take place in Hyde Park with our Admissions Fellows. We hope you are able to interview on campus, as it’s an opportunity to experience Chicago Booth’s community firsthand.

Interviews are Monday – Friday, October 19 – November 13, 2015 and Saturday, November 7, 2015
Location: Harper Center, 5807 South Woodlawn, Chicago, IL 60637
Off-campus interviews take place in cities around the world with Booth alumni. If you are outside the greater Chicago area, we will work to match you with an alumnus in your location.

Can everyone who has received an invite to please updated your GMATCLUB applicant profile so that the stats properly reflect the correct numbers.

Is this the 1st wave of interview invites after Sept 17? I ask this as I plan to apply to Booth in R2 and wanted to know if invites will only be sent out 5th Jan + 3 weeks time frame or on a rolling basis for R2?

This appears to be the first wave per my observation of the activities on this forum. There could be applicants that are not on this forum but have received an invitation earlier than today though.

That's just cruel - did anyone else just receive an email from "Chicago Booth Full-time MBA Admissions"? I got excited until I found out the content of the email was "Booth Insight - Community News from the Full-Time MBA Program." :(

I did.
I checked my email after seeing your post. Haha, so I was prepared to be super calm.

I encourage all schools stop sending marketing emails during our waiting period, haha!

Yup saw the same thing on my phone and my heart skipped a beat. Adding fuel to the fire I got an email from MIT Sloan admissions starting with "You're invited " ...... to some random informational event.

Thanks!

And if helps you guys know what to expect - the email came from The University of Chicago Booth School of Business titled "Your Chicago Booth Application Status Has Changed". It's not the best title IMO since it could mean anything (especially if it comes on 10/16)! I was nervous until I logged in and checked the "status update" link.

Good luck!

Saw quite a few posts reporting interview invitations from Booth, but forum stats show only one invite. Those who received their decisions could update your application status please?

Good luck!!

This may sound harsh, but it's not meant to be.... If you're anxious after not hearing from HBS (there's still time, why are you counting yourself out?), perhaps you did not set your expectations correctly. No need to be anxious, nothing you can do at the moment.

You've submitted your best, and it's up to the admissions folks. Just sit back relax, wait and see your results. It's also Friday! Enjoy your weekend!
