The MBA student blog at Chicago Booth School of Business has a new look and a new home, Kurt Ahlm, Associate Dean of Student Recruitment and Admissions, recently shared.
If you’re an applicant who’s interested in learning about the Chicago Booth community and student life, check out TheBoothExp.com. From academics to recruiting and career services, student clubs to summer internships, Ahlm promises “the Booth Experience will provide you with unique access and perspective on the daily lives of our students.”
In a recent post, second-year Linda Yan writes about her experience applying to Booth, and it may put some of you at ease as you prepare your Round 2 applications this month. Yan says she was a traditional MBA candidate–no awesome stories about being a member of the Peace Corps, a globe trotter, or an Iraqi war veteran–and that that’s absolutely okay!
Yan writes: “What’s completely overlooked is that by far and away, business schools are full of people like you and me: bright, ambitious young professionals in traditional fields that recruit talented undergrads and train them to be good at analysis and getting stuff done.”
She goes on to explain in detail how she conveyed her story to the admissions committee, conventional goals and all. Doesn’t that just make you want to exhale a huge sigh of relief?
If Chicago Booth is on your short list, becoming a regular visitor to the Booth Experience blog is a great way to get to know the school better and determine if it would be a good fit for you. Happy reading!
