Dean’s Student Admissions Committee (DSAC)
Dean’s Student Admissions Committee (DSAC) members assist the Admissions Office in both the recruitment and evaluation of prospective students. DSAC is an excellent way to get involved, make an impact on the school, get to know fellow students and staff, and have fun. You can get involved in the areas that interest you the most. Involvement in DSAC allows you to balance your commitments with your class and extracurricular schedule. However, getting involved in DSAC is a commitment. Members participate in the admissions process in the following ways:
- Campus Visit Program: Students host daily information sessions, campus tours, and prospective student lunches during the daily campus visit program. Students also escort prospective students to class to give them a taste for the academic environment at Chicago Booth.
- The Booth Experience Blog: Check out DSAC's blog - The Booth Experience - to learn about many of the diverse aspects of the student experience at Chicago Booth.
- The Booth Experience Facebook page: Visit DSAC's Facebook page - The Booth Experience - to find out more about the day-to-day life of a student and what you can expect at Booth outside of the classroom. Through videos, photos, and a discussion forum, you will learn about student life through actual experiences from current students. This is a great way to interact and engage with DSAC members.
- Admitted Student Phone-a-thons: Students contact prospective students to promote Chicago Booth, welcome them to the community, and answer any questions they may have about the program.
- Admit Weekends: Admit Weekend is a showcase weekend in February and April for admitted students and partners to visit the campus and assist them in their decision-making process. You can participate in the planning and execution of these important student-led events.
- Student-hosted Events: DSAC members host casual events all over the world during the winter and summer breaks to meet with prospective students and share their experience at Chicago Booth.
- Reading Applications: Admissions Fellows are a group of second-year DSAC members who have been hired by the Admissions Office to read and evaluate applications. Applications are evaluated by both student and staff readers throughout the admissions process and final decisions are made by the Associate Dean of Admissions. Students provide a critical perspective in regards to the applicant pool, and are instrumental in shaping future Chicago Booth classes. Application reading takes place October through April.
- Interviewing: Our Admissions Fellows also conduct interviews of prospective students. They provide the Admissions Committee with their personal assessment of the candidates, and the data to support that assessment.
If you have a question that you would like addressed by a current student, please email us at dsac@ChicagoBooth.edu.
