This wait is nerve-wracking. Has anyone heard back from the adcom?

I heard back in 5 weeks for the fall term. How long has it been?

It's been three weeks. I've been accepted by Kellogg, but I think I'll be cutting it close to the acceptance deadline if I wait for Booth.
Should I wait for another week and ask to expedite the decision? Not sure what the best strategy is here.

I may have been in a similar scenario. Heard from Kellogg and the deadline to respond was right around the 6 week response time. Luckily Booth got back before then. Unless you're less than a week from the Kellogg deadline probably just hold out.

Good luck.

Applying for Fall 2019 Evening
1. 8 years of experience (the last 2 in the technology industry)
2. GPA 3.43
3. GMAT: 640, Q-46, V-32

I have taken the GMAT 2x now and am trying to figure out if I need to take it again. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Booth admissions has said I am in the middle 80% range (610-740) but I am worried my GMAT score isn't high enough.

Thanks!

For the application:
- I would recommend that you take your time and make sure everything is in order and 100% accurate; I had the application open for 3 months and would revisit the details every once in awhile to make sure everything was consistent throughout
- I spent a lot of time researching the school, and I attended every admissions event that was offered. I felt like doing this made it so that when I sat down to write the essays, I had a lot of great ideas to choose from and could write authentically about what appealed to me most about the school/program
- I wrote and re-wrote my essays several times, getting feedback from friends, family, coworkers, or anyone else who would take time to critique my ideas.
- The admissions staff at Booth is absolutely top-notch, and they were available at every step of the application for questions. I spoke over the phone and in-person with admissions several times throughout the process, and I thought this was really beneficial.

For the interview:
- In my experience (which seems consistent with many debriefs on this site), the interview was much less of an "interview" and much more of a conversation about the school and why I wanted to attend.
- I did not spend too much time preparing for this because after going through the application process, I had a very clear vision for what I love about Booth and could speak to classes and professors I was interested in with ease and authenticity.
- I was somewhat nervous while waiting to start my interview, but this was immediately alleviated once I started by how relaxed the entire setting was. I interviewed with an alumnus who was incredibly easy to talk to, and the conversation flowed from start to finish without it feeling at all like there was a list of questions he was trying to answer.
- I genuinely enjoyed the experience, which lasted close to an hour.

Happy to answer any specific questions via PM, too.

Good luck with your application

Thank you!

I was pretty dead-set on Booth, so I enrolled in the GSALB program to take a class last fall. I made sure to get a solid grade in the class, and the professor was kind enough to send a note to admissions on my behalf. I would encourage anyone who does not have a strong undergrad GPA or top GMAT score (or just wants to "test-drive" the Booth program before applying) to enroll in the GSALB program and crush whatever class they take.

Also, I relied on this website heavily during my GMAT prep, which brought my quant scores up by at least 8 points overall by my estimates. I'm really grateful for all of the great content here, and I'm more than happy to contribute in any way that I can now that I have completed my application process.
