For my application, I engaged with Booth alumni at the company where I worked. They generously helped me better articulate why I wanted an MBA and why I would be a good candidate.

It's a very unique opportunity to open the door to a world-class MBA program early in your career when you're still figuring out what you want to do.

My classmates were so diverse and interesting. I learned that you don't have to fit a particular mold to be successful—just strive to live an interesting life and constantly seek out new challenges.
