It’s hard to believe that the Round One decision release is almost here and that the Round Two application deadline is right around the corner. The fall quarter has gone by so quickly.
We are currently in the process finalizing our decisions for Round One. We’re really excited about the Class of 2014 – it’s an extremely bright, talented and diverse group and we cannot wait to welcome them to the Booth community. We’ll announce our decisions on Wednesday, December 14, and, as we’ve done in previous years, we’ll call our admitted students to share the good news.
As you find out where you’ve been admitted, many of you will have difficult choices to make about where you decide to enroll. You’ll take many factors into consideration – curriculum, community, location, faculty and career support – to help you determine where you’ll spend the next two years. But, for many of you, it will come down to a matter of fit, and fit means different things to different people. As Ricardo Taveira, a first-year student at Booth, describes in a recent essay published in The Economist, for him, it was the realization that he wanted to be surrounded by others who weren’t afraid to ask difficult questions and challenge ideas that helped him make his choice. Meeting an alum during his admissions interview as well as talking to currents during Admit Weekend provided Ricardo with opportunities to get to know our community.
During the next few weeks, our current students will be home for winter break and hosting informal events in cities around the globe. These student-hosted events will be a great opportunity to meet our students and to continue to explore your fit with Chicago Booth.
