Advice to anyone considering business school

Take the plunge! Because master’s programs aren’t perceived to be required, like bachelor’s degrees, everyone who’s in your classroom is there because they want to be. This creates a really unique environment that facilitates participation and discussion. Your ability to view lessons from different people’s perspectives will help you to grow so much.

What surprised you most about Booth?

The sense of community at Booth. I expected a top-MBA program to be rife with competition. Instead, what I’ve found is an environment of collaboration and support. I’ve formed friendships here that I’ll carry with me for the rest of my life.
