Dean’s Student Admissions Committee (DSAC)
The Dean’s Student Admissions Committee (DSAC) and Admissions Fellows are second-year students who assist the Office of Admissions in the recruitment and evaluation of prospective students.
DSAC Fellows are broken into the following areas of focus:
- Campus Community: Working with the Admissions office to oversee all campus-based and student-hosted events, this team works to ensure that all prospective students visiting Chicago Booth have a positive experience. From the Campus Visit Program to Admit Weekend to Student-Hosted Events and Affinity Group Experiences - the Campus Community team leverages the entire student body to develop and enrich relationships between the Booth community and prospective and admitted students.
- The Booth Experience: This team works with the Admissions Marketing team to foster a holistic view of life at Chicago Booth for prospective students. The team procures, creates, and distributes content (blogs, videos, photos, social media) that describes and portrays the unique culture and community found at Chicago Booth. They work to maintain a communications presence through both official Booth and student-run media channels. These primarily include The Booth Experience suite of channels - the blog, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.
- Global Booth Ambassadors (GBA): The focus of the GBA team is to work with Admissions to identify new and support existing initiatives to build the Booth brand worldwide. The GBA will serve as the (external) face of Booth Admissions in respective events and outreach efforts and will manage the country and regional captains.
Admissions Fellows are Chicago Booth's primary interviewing ream, conducting all on-campus interviews. They provide the Admissions Committee with their personal assessment of the candidates, and the data to support that assessment. Admissions Fellows provide a critical perspective in regards to the applicant pool, and are instrumental in shaping future Chicago Booth classes.
