Why did you choose to apply to and attend Booth? My first interaction with Booth was at the information session on the London campus. I was immediately impressed by not only the quality of the presentation, which highlighted the Booth faculty and academics, but the personable nature of the alumni present. This notion was further strengthened as the list of Booth students and alumni among my close friends and associates grew.
