Why did you choose to apply to and attend Booth? I chose Chicago Booth because I was impressed by how humble the school is: Even though Booth is world-renowned, faculty and students are still down to earth. Additionally, I wanted to be challenged by a rigorous curriculum with quantitative courses and finally, the flexibility of the curriculum offers me to tailor my experience to my specific needs.
Activities: learning from my brilliant peers, taking advantage of extracurricular events, discovering new restaurants, running along the lakefront
Use three adjectives to describe your experience at Chicago Booth: intense, fun, diverse
Ask me about...: Moving from Europe to the US, switching careers, why doing an MBA abroad
What city/country will you be in during the winter break? Switzerland
