According to poetsAndQuants, there is a method to the madness. They use First In First Out method for reviewing the applications, so it's probable that the admits are rolled out in the same order

do they start to read if you're missing information? for example, your recommender did not submit the recommendation until the last day it was due (i believe a week or so after the application due date).

Waiting to hear back about interviews makes me very glad acceptance decisions aren't rolling.

Hi received my invite about an hour ago as well. Super excited.

Does anyone know more about how the interview is used? For example how many invites go out? What percentage of people invited to interview are accepted? Also, any insight on how much weight the interview carries. For some reason, when I see that the interviews are conducted by alumni or second year students- I start to think they don't hold that much weight. Reasoning is that if schools really valued them the adcoms would conduct them to have a more normative and relied upon process

I'm not sure about that this year. I submitted my application at 3pm CST on 9/17, so I should have been close to last to hear. I think they just divide these up among reviewers and you're just at the mercy of how much of a procrastinator your reviewer is. That's a terrible answer, I know. . . .

According to an old P&Q article, about 50% applicants are interviewed, 44% of the interviewed candidates are admitted and 61% of them accept the admit offer.

i hope the stats on the first page are accurate. 9% for the first day of invites sounds about right if we assume a target of approximately 50%

FROM Booth Admissions Blog: Building My Booth Experience
Image
I could feel the buzz from the moment I stepped in the front doors of the Harper Center. It was some combination of curiosity, passion and comradery - and it was everywhere.  And, as I stepped foot into the admissions office, I found it there as well. The admissions office was exactly the environment I’d been seeking, a team of driven and extraordinarily welcoming individuals working on providing prospective students and applicants with the best experience possible - and having fun while doing so!



Since starting my role with Chicago Booth Full-Time MBA Admissions in September, each interaction, with both students and staff, has served as proof of the ideals that stand behind the school. Coming from an undergraduate experience where students were extraordinarily passionate about their university, I was skeptical of finding that sense of pride in another institution. I can absolutely say that the same deep passion and excitement is here at Booth.

In my role as the Assistant Director of Admissions Outreach I am given the opportunity to help express these aspects of Booth to prospective students. I work planning informational events in cities across the globe to help prospective students learn about the Booth experience, and connect them with alumni and current students. It hardly seems like work most days, as Booth’s “pay-it-forward” culture speaks strongly for itself.  As we develop global outreach plans, we are overwhelmed by eager alumni and current students across the world who are volunteering to tell their Booth story. Students feel so passionately about the institution that they constantly seek out ways in which they can extend the Booth experience. It is a passion that makes me even more excited to build a Booth experience of my own.

In my first month at Booth I have found something extraordinary. I look forward to each day for both the opportunities it provides to widen my Booth perspective and the ability to share that with you on this blog!

So, less than half. Any tips on how to prepare? I've read a lot of advice on that, but still feel like there is more, if it's such a competitive process.

I'm not sure that's correct, I submitted on the last day. Considering GMAT's of invited students, it's possible they have some baskets based on GMAT (for convenience). Let's wait for the next wave of invitees.

The average GMAT score is 732, meaning there are half of the students scoring lower than 730 ...
