Last year we were all a bit confused about having to accept admission in order to get on the admitted students site. I think there is a link on your application status page that asks you to accept admission. Just do it. This does not mean you are committing to Booth. It just gives you access to the admitted students portal. You aren't officially committed until you pay your money which you don't have to do for a while.


I accepted via the link in the application. I got an email with the information on the deposits ($2,000 due Feb 19 and $1,000 due June 5). Still no information about the admitted students page, I will update if I get more information.


Look again. It actually gives you the link to sign up for the admitted students' website with or without an official commitment. It also gives you links to the admit Facebook Group and Google Discussion Group.

What I didn't see was scholarship information....

I've google-searched this but have not been able to find anything.

Thanks!


That is totally relevant to me! I good gym is a must; but this is Chicago. I can't imagine you being more than a few miles in any direction without a good one...plus U Chicago has athletics. Their school gym will probably do as well.

http://athletics.uchicago.edu/facilities/facilities.htm <== looks pretty damn good to me.

Thats what I was wondering. I need to cut down on all the flab put on due to working 3 years at IBD!

I have started an FB group, lets take this type of discussion there. Also, can't wait to see real faces behind GC nicks of my future classmates!

http://www.facebook.com/groups/BoothMBA2015


Doesn't the school create an official fb group? I could be wrong here.


They do. In the email they give you the name of a woman whose friends list you need to get on to be invited.

Mine works fine, Tovin. Did you create your username/pw through the /claimaccount url and set up security questions as well? That's all I did, hope it helps...

Yep, that's exactly what I did. I even reset my password to make sure I wasn't doing anything stupid. Hmmmm I guess I'll keep trying. Thanks dwal44.


Having the same issue - can log into the admitted students site, but not the portal. Any word on troubleshooting?

I also can't get into the Portal, specifically. Admitted Student Site works.


On a different note...to a current student: what are the most popular downtown apartment buildings? I hear there are 4 or 5 buildings that most people live in...and I know one is Millennium Park Plaza...What are the rest?

Well, sounds like we all have the same problem. That at least gives me a little comfort.

Love how you've gotten a ton of info but the only piece you care about is the scholarship. GREEDY :wink: I can't front...I was the exact same way. Don't worry, your scholly email and letter shall be to you shortly. My letter was in my admit package so I doubt that will change this year.

You better enjoy your mai-tais no matter what!! Hmm, so I got the call on March 20 and according to the picture I posted on facebook my admit package came on March 26. Do not judge for changing my profile pic to my Booth admit package. The 20th was a rough day for me.

I won't judge as long as you don't hold it against me if I borrow your idea if/when I have the chance :).

Same issue here as well. I can log in to the admitted students site but I cannot log in to the portal. Maybe it takes 24 hours to update?

The Ratner center is the school gym. I checked it out when I was there for my interview. Its alright, looks a little dated and the facility definitely doesn't feel as nice as some of the other schools. From what I saw, they have all the essential equipment, so it should do. However, it does have a Jamba Juice in it, so thats a plus.

Cannot get access to the portal either. Also I guess you cannot create an email address before formally accepting enrollment right?
