What was your application process like?

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.

Why should someone be a Booth Scholar?

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.

What is your most impactful insight from your Booth experience?

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.
