As Admissions Directors, we often discuss how the community at Chicago Booth is vibrant, diverse, and unique. But you can’t just take our word for it. The best way to get a feel for the community here at Booth is by interacting with the people that live it every day, our students. If you are preparing a Round Two application, or are just considering an MBA, it’s never too early to engage with our students and get a taste of what being a “Boothie” is all about.

In the coming weeks, there are many ways to meet students and engage with the larger Booth community that we hope you’ll explore.
Worldwide Student-Hosted Events: Very soon our students will be leaving campus for winter break. Whether interning in new cities, taking an adventure trip with friends, or visiting family in their hometowns, they will spend a part of their break hosting events with their classmates for prospective students interested in learning more about Booth. These informal events will give you the opportunity to discover more about the Booth experience from the student perspective, and meet other MBA hopefuls. New events will be posted to our website daily, so check back often and register for one in your city!

Booth Live: Join us for a full day of programming at Booth Live on January 24. Experience the Chicago Approach in a class session with our faculty, get your questions answered in a Q&A with the Admissions Committee, and of course, spend the majority of the day with our students over lunch, tours and a student panel. End the day at our traditional on campus happy hour, the Liquidity Preference Function (LPF) with the student body. Booth Live is meant for you to immerse yourself in the student experience. Registration for Booth Live will open later this month.

Campus Visit Program: We invite you year round to come to our campus and experience a day in the life for yourself! Sit in on a class, check out our amazing facilities, have lunch with students, and get your questions answered in an admissions information session. The campus visit program offers abbreviated and full visit programs. Visit our website for schedule options and to register.

Chicago Conversations: Join us at these unique events that bring alumni, industry experts, staff and prospective students together in cities around the world. Chicago Conversations events feature industry-specific topics through the lens of Chicago-style thinking. Consider joining us for a lively, engaging, insightful conversation. Learn more about upcoming events in New York, Shanghai, San Francisco and Boston. 

If you can’t come to campus, or there isn’t a winter event in your city, consider reaching out to our International Country Captains. Connect with these Booth students from around the world and learn about life at Booth and beyond. You can find a list of our country captains and their contact information here.

Another great resource is The Booth Experience. Talk directly to our students via @TheBoothExp on twitter or just check out their blog to learn more about the day to day at Booth. 

Our students are eager to share their #WhyBooth experiences with you, and there is no better way to learn about the Booth community than by taking advantage of the above opportunities to meet them.

As always, please reach out to us with any questions about our events.
All the best,
