Round 2 admissions decisions were released this week, so we here at The Booth Experience want to extend a huge CONGRATULATIONS to all those who were admitted!
I still remember the day I got the call from Booth admissions over two years ago. I sprinted into the first empty conference room I could find at my office and shamelessly yelled with surprise, delight and excitement. That call marked the beginning of my Booth Experience – a journey that has invaluably enriched both my personal and professional life. I’m so excited for those of you who are just starting your Booth Experience.
Congratulations again and I hope to meet some of you at First Day in the spring!

In this guest post, 2Y student Chun Ying Wang reflects on her time as a member and eventual co-chair of BoothEd, a group who’s mission is to further the professional and personal interests of Chicago Booth students in the education sector.
