Earlier this week Rose Martinelli, Chicago Booth’s Associate Dean for Student Recruitment and Admissions, posted some advice for applicants who are trying to hit today’s Round 2 deadline. Here’s what she covered:
- The school will accept letters of recommendation as late as January 13. As long as YOU get your materials in by 5 PM CST today, Booth will accept your application as part of Round 2 even if your recommenders are a few days late. Note, however, that the admissions committee won’t start reviewing your application until they receive both letters of recommendation.
- Chicago Booth only requires an official transcripts after you have been admitted. All you need to submit with your application is a scanned copy of your transcripts.
- Similarly, you only need to report your own GMAT score in your application by the deadline. Assuming you’ve let the test providers know that Booth is one of your target schools, the school will receive the official score reports. This does not need to happen by the deadline.
Good luck to all of our readers who are applying to Chicago Booth in Round 2!
