Tips for applying to Chicago's MBA Program:

  • Essay questions are creatively designed to get a well-rounded picture of applicant's personality, to see how they think, and to see whether they have a good sense of the school's character.

  • In past the perception was that community at the school was weak. Therefore may be helpful to show that you are someone who will actively contribute to the community.

  • School very much values strength of its academic program - may be good to talk about how program will serve you and how you will contribute to it.

  • School emphasizes learning 'how to think', how to consider and debate ideas - good to show fit with this approach.

  • College professors can be recommenders.

  • Like people with broad range of interests and passions (partly to counter reputation of producing primarily quant-oriented students) Good to show sense of humor, community involvement, extracurriculars, languages etc.

  • Application should be cohesive, logical, on point, and demonstrate good fit, rather than seek to highlight some unique detail or trait.
