Hi there,

Interesting work experience! Are you still at Infosys or are you now with EY? I wasn't quite clear on the chronology of the work experience you provided. Regardless, my primary question for you is why are you seeking an MBA and looking to leave the legal profession after getting as far as you have? Your interest in the retail space is interesting but also seems a bit disconnected from the rest of your profile. That story will be critical to a successful application to any program. You asked about Booth specifically but without further understanding your story, it's really tough (and probably not a helpful exercise) to make estimates on chances. I would encourage you to think about why you're targeting Booth specifically and how it uniquely supports your goals and priorities. Your stats (GMAT and GPA) are solid so the greatest opportunity I see for you is getting more clear on the questions I asked above and creating an application strategy that aligns with those. Best of luck to you!
