The Chicago Booth admissions team highlighted a number of things to consider before hitting “submit.” Unsurprisingly, this advice is generally useful and applicable to all MBA applicants.
- Make sure your application is the most accurate representation of who you are.
- Be sure that you have articulated what value you will gain from your MBA experience — remember that your application needs to articulate why an MBA makes sense for you at this time in your life and career.
- Be open-minded about your “Presentation” essay (Chicago Booth specific) — there is no right or wrong way to show us who you are.
- Make sure your recommenders know you well — they need to be able to offer specific examples of your performance and contributions to the organization.
- Have someone else read your essays to confirm they answered the question being asked and sound authentically like you.
- Confirm sure your GMAT scores have been submitted.
- Proofread, Proofread, Proofread! Sloppy mistakes are unnecessary and will leave a bad impression with the Committee.
- Do not wait until the last minute to submit your application online
