One thing you wish you had known when applying for MBA programs? Make your MBA Bucket List. There are SO many thanks to get involved with and some of them start before the MBA even begins (like pre-MBA Summer recruiting programs). From working with any of the research centers like Polsky or Rustandy, to participating in Start Up Summer, it’s important to get ahead of what you may want to do while at Booth.

Why did you choose Booth?

-Strong academic focus on analytics and data driven business to compliment my humanities undergrad
-Global footprint with campuses across three continents
-Pay-it-forward culture

Fun Fact: I worked in an educational wine school located 10 minutes from The Colosseum.

Booth Experience: As crazy as it sounds, going through Consulting recruiting. It was a huge mountain to climb and I formed incredible relationships in the process with both 1Ys and 2Ys. It was incredibly sweet to celebrate moments together and comforting to share the hard times together.
