Why did you choose to apply to and attend Booth? From day one, I experienced the pay-it-forward and collaborative culture at Booth when interacting with the Admissions office, students and alumni. Additionally, since I have a Master’s in Economics, I wanted the ability to choose the courses that best suited my needs and desires, so the flexible curriculum and the top-level faculty were very important to me. The size of the class is neither too small nor too big, enabling us to form a tight community and take advantage of a strong alumni network. But most importantly, when I came to First Day, it just felt like home.
