One thing you wish you had known when applying for MBA programs? Recruiting can and will kick you in the teeth. Be prepared, have at least one friend you can be honest with about your failures, and pick a roommate that’s recruiting for something different so you don’t compare yourself to their journey.

Why did you choose Booth? Biggest financial aid package from the best school. Friendly students and staff. Flexible curriculum.

Fun Fact: I do social Latin dancing.
