    Congratulations on your acceptance to Chicago Booth. That’s a great choice and a real accomplishment. I would have predicted the same given your stats from a top undergraduate school, your GMAT, and especially your work experience in getting hired at highly selective firms. Well done! Best of luck to you.

    Congratulations on your Booth admit! It really sounds like you did everything a candidate would want to do and it paid off! As your results show, the admissions game can be a bit unpredictable even if you do everything right, so hopefully others reading this will take away the lesson to not count on any one school outcome but to build a list of schools that makes sense for their goals and keep their eyes on the prize! Good luck with your future goals! All the best, Julie-Anne Heafey, mbaMission
