Don't worry so much, Look at last year, 34/42 (81%) had interviews. Even Round 1 had higher than 50%.

All,

If any of you are coming to campus to interview and would like to grab a coffee, just PM me. I can't promise I'm free all days, but I'm always happy to try and make time.


rhyme, would you any stats/info on whether any more interview calls can be expected?
is it time to give up hope?

thanx

I have zero "formal" insight but I know they are still reading apps, so no, don't loose hope. I saw a friend with a dozen just two days ago.

rhyme: Do you know how they are evaluating the applications...first come first serve, alphabetically, etc?..I understand you might not have a detailed insight. I am getting to the point where I am beginning to wake up in the middle of the night.

Date that your app went complete is a pretty good indicator. However, it still is variable to the speed of the readers etc

Interviewed on Monday. The facilities are outstanding and the students are very friendly and approachable. I honestly have fallen in love with Chicago Booth.

Absolutely!

1. Why do you want an MBA?
2. What are your short-term and long-term plans?
3. What are you passionate about?
4. What do you think is the role of a leader/manager?
5. What will you be active in at Chicago Booth (outside the classroom)?

I love the building and People. That was the same feeling I got when I was there for GSB LIVE.

Absolutely. I think most of the people I talked to that were there interviewing felt the same way. I love how Booth has students go to the admissions office to talk to the applicants interviewing that day. I loved every one of those students. I talked to one of them for an hour, and she happened to have a lot of the same professional interests as me.

All in all, they know what they're doing and know how to make people feel welcome. Very professional operation.
