Rhyme, can we attend the Diversity GSB Live even if we are not 'diversity'? I will be in town that week for a conference and wanted to attend if possible.

Yea, I think it shouldn't be a problem, but maybe you should check with the school just in case.... Or in my case, I'd go and if anyone asks, just tell people your mother is from South America or something...

For the community involvement section, how much space is everyone using? I've got 7-8 paragraphs (approx. 650 words) does anyone think this is too much?

Rhyme, thanks for the valuable class information +1.

I'm really appealed to Schrager's class as Entrepreneurship is why I want to go back to school, however, I was wondering how valuable are the Chicago GSB Overview and the Student Panel.
What are your thoughts on this?

Generally, no, but typically people say 500 words is a good optional essay limit.

That said, in my year there was some question about having traveled abroad. It was clearly intended as a short answer type question, but I still submitted something like 700 words anyway.

Hey rhyme,
Is LPF always at the same location? When I went in Nov, 2007 after GSB Live it was at some lounge in downtown Chicago. You wouldn't happen to know the name of that place would you?

Last heard at the Wiener Circle:
Random Dude - "Hello, what's good today?"
Lady at the Window - "Your Mom. Next."

cue raucous laughter.

Everyone needs to go there after TNDC!
