Dinged. Quite surprised.
I think it was the essay that got me.

I am less hurt about the rejection than the fact that they didn't even bother to notify me. At least HBS was gracious enough to send me an automated email with "Thanks, but no thanks". And they didn't try to offer their part time program as a consolation.

It would have been better if Booth just texted saying "I'm sorry but I don't feel the same way about you. I really value our friendship though, we can keep hanging out on the occasional evening or weekend, but during the days I'm going to be busy with people I like better".

Welp, this was a productive week. Time to go get sloshed and try not to think about the other apps that have been submitted and are out of my control.

Sorry to everyone that got dinged, I don't want to find out how that feels.

Anyone want to share how they are preparing for the interview? I am happy to work with others on this, more than enough room for all of us on this forum at Booth :)

For those of you interviewing off-campus, did anyone receive the details of their interviewers and interview dates yet? Any updates from those in India?

I'm in the US, but I got the contact info for my interviewer shortly after selecting my interview preference... Maybe it takes longer if there isn't an alum readily available near you?

Same here. Indian applicant- received the invite on the 14th, submitted the preference on 15th. Yet to hear. I didn't get any confirmation mail with further instructions either.

Similar situation here. That two month wait seems excruciating.

FROM Booth Admissions Blog: Student Stories: Meet Nobu Kawai
Image
Nobu Kawai is a second-year student at Chicago Booth who previously worked in Tokyo in risk management for the Japanese commercial bank Sumitomo Mitsui. He came to Booth to study international resource development because he wants to switch his function to operation management when he returns to his company post MBA.



For Nobu, moving to Chicago with his wife and young daughter has been a valuable cultural exchange that allows him to share his traditions and perspective with his fellow classmates. From hosting a sushi lunch on campus with the Japan Club to organizing a student trip to visit his home country on break, Nobu loves the way people at Booth are curious about different cultures and enjoy open exchanges around diverse thoughts, viewpoints, and backgrounds.

Same question and valid for all the schools that offer alumni or student interviews. How does one know if the school knows that the interview is done?

My interviewer did mention that he would have to fill out an assessment form or something by Nov 12th. After that, he will be done and he won't even know my final decision that the school send out on Dec 8th
