A Guide to Random Walks

When you’re considering Booth as an option for your MBA, you’ve likely also heard about how admitted students like to go around the world with their future classmates on trips called Random Walks (or RW).

Congratulations Round 2 Admits!!

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!
