describe the booth community:

Here at Booth I have friends from all over the world - South America, Brazil, Argentina, and Europe. I'm a part of a lot of geographical groups. I'm really happy that there is such a rich community where people are open to share their experience and take you the way you are. I'm really happy that I can learn more about other cultures and make friends all over the world.

Advice to Anyone Considering an MBA:

Don't wait to reach out to students and alumni. I got in contact with student groups and received a lot of support. I felt like I was a step ahead because I did that preparation in advance.
