Round Three Advice from Chicago Booth School of Business

Today is the round three deadline at Chicago Booth School of Business. If you’re scrambling to gather everything you need to hit the submit button today, take a moment to glance over these words of advice from the Booth Insider blog.

While round three is more competitive due to fewer slots available, admissions says they are still continuing to shape their class and are looking for applicants who would be wonderful additions to the Booth community.  If you’re wondering whether it’s better to apply now or wait until next year, remember the advice of all programs: it’s better to apply when you can submit the best possible application.

“It’s important to submit an application that is the best representation of who you are and that clearly communicates your goals for pursuing an MBA,” the school advises. “The Admissions Committee can tell when an application has been rushed, so take your time and make sure you have an application strategy in place that leverages each aspect of your application to tell your story.”

Chicago Booth calms concerns of international students in this post, explaining that there will be time to process visas for round three applicants. Applying earlier makes your life easier, but since round three decisions are released in mid-May and orientation doesn’t begin until the first week of September, international students will have enough time to process their visas throughout the summer.

“If you know that Booth is one of your top choices, and you’ve put together a strong, thoughtful, and engaging application that lets your personality shine through, then we definitely encourage you to apply in Round 3,” says the school.
