Avg GMAT score and GMAT range of admits is 751 (720 - 770) whereas that of overall R2 application pool is 733 (650 - 770).

This says a lot. Would be great to see average GMAT scores of admits for all major schools once R2 is done. Would we be in for a few surprises?

We will do a comprehensive analysis of admission trends at various top schools once round 2 is concluded. BTW, we did a similar analysis in R1 here.. https://gmatclub.com/forum/r1-admission ... 32055.html

FROM Booth Admissions Blog: Alumni Stories: Meet Maddie Thies, ’16
Image
After checking in with recent Chicago Booth graduates in New York and skipping across the country to visit Booth interns on the job in the Bay Area, we are back in the Midwest to talk with alumni in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It’s a city where some of the biggest names in food, retail, and energy have their headquarters. First off, we stopped in Ecolab to chat with Maddie Thies, ’16, about how the unique balance of qualitative and quantitative elements she got at Chicago Booth sets her apart from other marketers today. She talks about not only having the data and analytics to back up her recommendations, but also using insights from her international business concentration at Booth to help her connect with her team globally every day.

Planning for Your MBA: Advice from the Financial Aid Office [#permalink]

FROM Booth Admissions Blog: Planning for Your MBA: Advice from the Financial Aid Office
Image
If you’re thinking about business school in the near future, chances are you are also exploring how MBA students finance their education. While the MBA continues to be one of the best short and long-term investments you can make into yourself and your future, it does necessitate a bit of planning ahead. Booth’s office of Financial Aid offers prospective students some information on what to expect and some additional options you may not have considered.

Know what expenses to expect

We suggest you start by looking at current tuition rates at your target schools. Even if it’s a year or two before you want to begin your program, you can start calculating a close approximation of costs now. Most schools break down their cost of attendance to include estimates such as renting an apartment, buying a computer, food, textbooks, and securing health insurance — all mandatory expenses every student will have to factor in. At Booth, for example, students may request a loan amount that can also cover these mandatory items.



Your MBA costs, however, won’t be limited to tuition and the necessities mentioned above. Many programs also offer endless travel opportunities - academic, career-related, and purely social. For example, Booth students take Career Treks to meet alumni and industry leaders in various cities in the US and internationally during academic breaks. You will also likely get involved with several student groups, which generally have fees to join. Many Booth hopefuls have their sights set on joining a Random Walk trip with fellow incomings classmates before school begins, which requires money out of pocket—albeit money well spent. A number of events you want to attend (socials, formals, trips, spring break, etc.) may pop up each quarter, so plan to add a few such expenses to your list. This is where money you save before you begin an MBA program will come in handy.

Be in the driver’s seat

It’s important to note that your lifestyle during your time as an MBA student can vary wildly based on your choices and, ultimately, you can control how far your money will take you. Be mindful in choosing the right balance for you and plan to be strategic with your spending. Try to identify any easy ‘big wins’—for example, if you can live with a roommate, you can see significant savings in housing costs. Maybe you already have a great laptop, plenty of frequent flyer miles, or have no problem leaving your car behind and taking advantage of Chicago’s public transportation. All of this can add up to significant savings during your MBA program.

Prior to even starting their MBA, many students create a savings goal for how much money they want to set aside by the time school begins. The rationale being that every extra dollar you save now is one you won’t have to borrow.

Other funding options

In addition to applying for federal or private student loans, doing the work to find other funding options will pay off. Does your employer offer MBA sponsorship, or any type of tuition assistance? If so, is it in your best interest to utilize such funds (and accept the terms of such support)? Employer support can require a commitment to return to the employer after school. Be sure to investigate whether an employer assistance program a.) is negotiable; and b.) has amenable terms.

Are there any agencies or associations you know of or are connected with that offer scholarship or fellowship support to students pursuing their MBA? These could be religious institutions, professional associations, military affiliations, etc. Many students have found success doing a broad scholarship search using big aggregator databases like scholarships.com or fastweb.com.



Family may be another feasible source of funding. Whether gift support or loans with favorable terms, approaching family members who have resources may be a worthwhile conversation to have.

Chart your path to success!

Keep in mind; you’re not trying to create a detailed budget quite yet. But when you know what you may spend in a given year, combined with any personal savings and resources, you will develop a clearer sense of what your borrowing estimate might look like.

The majority of Booth students take out student loans to pay for their education and see the lifelong benefits of this investment! Last year 98.4% of the Chicago Booth Class of 2016 received job offers within three months of graduating, earning a median base salary of $125,000. This can certainly help set prospective students’ minds at ease when it comes to understanding the position they will be in upon graduation.

Getting a handle on your financing doesn’t need to feel daunting. Most everyone considering an MBA has the same questions —so you’re not alone. There’s no one right way to fund your education, only a right way for you. As many Booth alumni will attest, minimizing borrowing is great, but taking full advantage of the many experiences and relationships that are only possible while in business school will continually pay dividends throughout the entirety of your career.

Women of Wall Street [#permalink]

New post 16 May 2017, 09:00
FROM Booth Admissions Blog: Women of Wall Street
Image
You may not be surprised to know that there are not any Wall Street movies that star women bankers. That was until Equity premiered in 2016. The movie was written, produced, and directed by women. Even better, it was also funded and informed by actual Wall Street women, including Booth alumna Linnea Roberts, ’90, who recently retired as a partner at Goldman Sachs.

I recently had the honor of participating in a panel discussion on gender equality on Wall Street following a screening of Equity at Chicago Booth’s Gleacher Center in April. The panel was moderated by Linnea Roberts and my co-panelists were Sarah Megan Thomas, Producer and Co-Star of Equity and Gina Lytle, ’09, Vice President at Goldman Sachs. As a second year student, I was thrilled to share my experience preparing for a career in banking, spending my summer on Wall Street, and accepting a job offer. Sitting on the panel reminded me of the tremendous impact of the women in finance who paved the way for me. They established careers that I aspire for while having far fewer female mentors than I have today. Linnea is a wonderful example of someone who has watched the industry embrace women over the course of her career and has dedicated tremendous effort to support successful women in finance.

Having the opportunity to speak in front of my peers, alumni, and prospective students on an issue that was so relevant to me was such an honor. Business school provides endless opportunities to develop as a communicator and presenter but this was certainly the most fun.



When I decided to earn my MBA to pursue a career in investment banking, there were people outside of my business school circle who often questioned why I would choose such a demanding career in a male-dominated industry. I was not afraid of a challenge so the fact that it could be hard didn’t seem like reason enough not to try. So far in my time at Booth, I’ve gotten to know Booth alumnae and countless fantastic women with impressive banking careers – all wonderful resources and mentors to me. As the industry seeks to be more inclusive (albeit slowly, as you will find when you watch the movie), it is an exciting time to be joining the banks as a woman.

I first saw Equity on flight shortly after my summer internshipImage
experience. I was impacted by how the movie showed us such strong, driven, and complex women and shined a light on topics like mentorship, compensation, family life, and client relationships. Equity is a thrilling story and a reminder for men and women to continue to work toward gender equality on Wall Street. The efforts require sponsorship by men and women, the influence of senior women, and excellence and determination by young women. I was glad to be a small part of the conversation.

Booth called admitted students for R3 and Waitlist yesterday. I didn't receive a call. But this morning there's no application status update either.

Has anyone received the status update on the site?

Could there still be chance of getting admitted today?
