My taxi driver knew the schools too, it was pretty funny. I think they must take a lot of student to the schools from the airports.

FUNNY!

When I was visiting Kellogg one of the students told me that she and all her friends just called up this specific cab driver whenever they needed to go somewhere. Apparently he was like the offical Kellogg driver. At least for this specific group of students....

hmm..I smell a conspiracy theory.

Maybe the Kellog marketing department are tipping the taxi drivers everytime they tell people that Kellogg is better :-D

Hey more respect dude!

I am going to enforce GSB's soccer team to beat the cereals guys, hehehe

Yep bsd it's kind of the same thing that happened to me at the American Embassy, but today when I was comming to Chicago's airport, the Airport Shuttle driver saw my bagage and said: Dude, are you comming to GSB? If so is a great school! So don't worry that Rose is working with the drivers also :lol: :lol:

(Now is on the right place :wink: )

I went to ther Harper Center this afternoon, and definetelly I will have to buy a car.

Count me in in your soccer team kwam !! (Rose are you listening ? send me the admit so that I can start training ....). I normally play defensive midfield, but at my skill level it doesnt make a difference where I play ;)

I'll definitely buy a car if I end up in Chicago.

Watch what you say..!!!!

GSB soccer team is pretty poor... they lost to UT Austin Mc Combs... I am a die hard soccer fan and I met the soccer club folks and wanted to practice with them...they confessed they lose to Kellogg on a daily basis....so we need a few more kwams and BSDs to change the tide

I cannot but recall this joke I read somewhere:

Want to impress Taxi Drivers? Tell them you got your MBA from Yale!


Disclaimer: no offense to Yale meant. Them Princeton do not even have an MBA program!
