Booth Alumni Network (Outside Chicago) [#permalink] New post 24 Dec 2013, 13:44
Hi everyone,

Can any current Booth students or Booth alumni comment on Booth's alumni network in Manhattan (where my wife and I want to live), and Southern California (where we were from)? I chatted with 3 Booth alumni (friend's friends: 2 in San Francisco, 1 in Atlanta) and I don't have the warm and fuzzy feeling after talking to them. They seem to be cold and less enthusiastic comparing with other schools' alumni(Kellogg and Stern). Appreciate your input.

Booth has a pretty huge alumni base in NYC. The school is always hosting events for alums and current students in Manhattan. I know that NY alums are very involved in on campus recruiting, especially for banking and consulting (two industries that bring a lot of Boothies to NYC).

I don't know as much about the alum network in Southern Cali. I know it's there and that Booth also hosts events in the city but I don't know if it's as robust and active as NYC's. Is there something specific you're looking to use the alumni network for?

The LA club has a smaller presence than the NY or Chicago clubs, but they are active. Speaking for the Class of '15, we have a strong SoCal contingent that intends to remain very active after graduation.

Here is a link to their past events, which average more than one/month:

Upcoming events for all clubs are listed here:

LA has few upcoming events, but they probable haven't posted for this year yet.

Hi cheetarah1980,

Thank you very much for your input. Career opportunities and expanding personal network are the two things I am looking for in alumni network. It's great to hear that Booth has a strong presence in NYC.

Hi brandon432,

Booth admission office did inform me that there are several students coming from LA / OC and Bay area. Your words reassure what others have shared with me. Thank you!
