Accepted students will likely be called on December 7th as tradition goes. People waitlisted and dinged will just get a status change and receive their news on December 8th.

FROM Booth Admissions Blog: Students Reflect on Their Essays
Image
For those of you preparing your Round Two MBA applications we know it can be quite a busy time, but we hope you are finding the process of thinking about your goals and values insightful and rewarding. We thought it would be helpful to give you some insight from Admissions, as well as the perspective of Booth students.

We designed our 2016-17 essay as a platform to give you some inspiration - and choice - in how you tell your story. When you look at this collection of distinct Chicago Booth moments, you’ll see our community engaged in everyday life. Don’t hesitate to draw on that vision and have fun with the process.



As you work to finalize and submit your application, read what current students say as they reflect back on their own applications to Booth.

 

Booth’s essay allowed me to have free reign over what I wanted the Admissions committee to know about me that I couldn’t express elsewhere in the application. As you approach this essay, think about it as an opportunity to be completely and utterly the "authentic you." Your quirks, interests, and experiences matter because Booth really values the entire person. I knew I was on to something because my best friend looked at my presentation and said, "Wow, this is so you." And well, the rest is history. ~ John Frame

The Booth essay provided me an opportunity to respond in a way that let my genuine personality show, and not in the way I believed Booth wanted me to respond. The question allowed me to determine what form I wanted my essay to take, to show Booth who I am, and to provide them an opportunity to determine why I am a right fit for the school. ~ Talal Dajani



I built my application into a narrative that not only expressed what I've done in the past, but also my future goals. Based on the essay prompt, I was able to give a glimpse of the person I am beyond my resume. My advice is to invest the time thinking about what you want the school to know about you and bring that to life in your essay. ~ Kate Donlin



The essay called into question what I really wanted, what would really make me happy, and what the path forward looked like. My approach was to craft a timeline, imagine where I hoped to be 10 years from now, and find the storyline that led me to that point. At first, writing an MBA essay seemed overwhelming, but once I found my voice, it felt more like art than an application. In many ways, it confirmed why I wanted to be at Booth. ~ Sarah Coury



The essay helped me understand what I valued in my personal and professional aspirations. My approach was to define who I am and what is important to me. I really dug into my work and career choices, as well as my extracurricular activities, to understand what drives my motivation. Evaluating my background and the future impact I hope to have was important in understanding how an MBA will help me reach my goals. I assessed how my values were similar to Booth's. ~ Stephanie Hsu

I approached the application by thinking about the "why" behind my life decisions. Rather than focusing on a particular highlight from my past career, I thought holistically about the connection between different stages of my life, how they related to my future goals, and how these experiences shaped my personality. It allowed me to tell my story in the exact way that I thought would best portray who I am. That was the beauty of the Booth essay. ~ Stephen Yi

We hope that you enjoy the process, continue to dig deep into your passions and reasons for wanting an MBA, and reflect on why Booth is the place you want to be. As always, if you have any questions, feel free to comment below, or join our live chat on December 14th!

We look forward to learning more about you and reading your essays on January 4th.

Has everyone else been getting mailers from Booth lately? Got one about moving to Chicago. Probably just a mass email, but hard not to get my hopes up this close to decision day.

Of course it doesn't mean that, and I'm sorry for creating panic. Like I said, it likely means nothing, I was simply perplexed by the timing of the email.

Also, don't forget to check your spam folder, since that's usually the destination of mass emails.

Relax! The marketing mailing list is not linked to the admitted students list.

Having said that, super super nervous. Guys please update here once you start getting calls!

Sure the emails aren't linked to your status. Around 29 hours to go for 9am Chicago time (i.e. admit calls.........)

I have been surprisingly relaxed recently, but this close it's all back again.

Do we know if there is any correlation between receiving scholarship money and being called the day before vs. being admitted without scholarship money and being called the day of? The reason I ask is a friend of mine who was admitted to Booth last year, admittedly round 2 recalls being called the day of. However, two contacts who were admitted with scholarships were called the day before. Wanting to confirm if we don't receive a call tomorrow all hope is not lost?

Not sure what happens for Round 2.

But for Round 1, last year and the year before, admit calls whether with or without scholarship was a day before the deadline (i.e. tomorrow).

The deadline date was reserved for status updates on the portal...where rejections and waitlists were posted.

I've never heard of anyone getting calls the day of.
