Why did you choose to apply to and attend Booth? The flexible curriculum, the pay it forward culture and the warmth of the Booth community. I have a decent foundation in finance, statistics, economics so it's great to be able to take Marketing and Entrepreneurship classes from the first semester to learn completely new things. The pay it forward culture at Booth is amazing, I'm so impressed to see 2nd year spend so much time with 1st year, and how accessible Booth alum are. Warmth of the community comes from the honest, down to earth and easy going nature of people I have met and bonded with.
