Ultimately, the entire package matters (GMAT, work experience, application essays, interviews, recommendations, and undergraduate GPA). Since you are applying for business school, work experience is extremely important. Upon enrollment, the average amount of work experience for each student is approximately 4.5 years, which is fairly substantial.

You should also consider the brand of the school. The University of Chicago is an intellectual and academically rigorous school. In this sense, your GMAT score, GPA, and general passion about activities that involve analytical skill are all extremely significant factors in the admissions process. The Chicago Booth MBA program is also one of the most flexible in the world; Chicago generally includes several “blank pages” in the application which applicants are required to fill however they deem fit. You should make sure you have demonstrated (either explicitly or implicitly in your application) that you have the ability to take initiative and shape your own course of study.
