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?

Sorry - this may be completely irrelevant for some of you, but does anyone know if Booth has a designated gym? What is the gym situation like at Booth? (are there multiple gyms...sufficient barbells/dumbbells/machines..)

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

Thanks!


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?

Hello,
I need some guidance here. So I've been admitted and I see the letter by logging in to my application. In the letter there are only link to accept / decline the offer. I have not accepted yet - > do I need to accept first?
I've been called the 18th but I have not received any email yesterday. Only the online letter.
Could you kindly tell me how can I get a Chicago Booth ID and pw?
Thanks a ton!

I got an e-mail today from the woman to called me to inform me that I was accepted. I would assume you should have one shortly.

So..current students..
1) Do you think Booth will let me attend Admitted Students weekend with the R2 folks? The R1 Admit Weekend is in busy season for me which means lots of hours and lots of Saturdays and no chance of getting off work. I know it's not required to go, but I would like to.
2) What are the most popular downtown apartment buildings among Boothies besides Millenium Park Plaza?

Thanks!

c00guy, you should have received an email from the admissions officer who called you with details on how to get on to the admitted students website. You do not need to accept the admission offer until you have made up your mind.

Thanks!

I went to the R2 Admitted Students weekend last year and met several people who had been accepted in R1 or deferred from the previous year. Shoot an email to the admissions officer who called you and let them know the situation. I am pretty sure that they want you to see the school regardless of when that happens.

The most popular downtown apartment buildings are:
Loop: Columbus Plaza, MDA, Park Millenium, Shoreham, Tides, Aqua
South Loop: 1130 S Michigan, 1212 S Michigan

A lot of people also rent condos. They often have better upkeep and are a bit cheaper.


Hi Cheetah, I've got a question - my understanding is that most booth students (is the term boothies okay or do ppl not like it?) live in Loop...any comments as to the differences between living in Loop vs South Loop? South loops seems like it is further away from the city center so it is more quiet but also less accessible? Not sure what the difference in preference is.

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

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


Are you guys talking about the Chicago Booth Portal? I think you can login on with your official Chicago id, the same that you use on the Admitted Student Portal.

Well isn't this convenient - it looks like this one company "Magellan Development" has a small monopoly on Booth housing.

Powerpoint optional!!! What?!?

I loved the Powerpoint. I'm sure there will be all kind of strategy this year around whether to go with PPT or a 600-word essay. I personally think the PPT showed the adcom that you were willing to take extra time/effort to apply to Booth since you couldn't just recycle another essay.


I definitely plan on doing the powerpoint presentation even though I know it will be very difficult. The essay prompt is all about pushing yourself and broadening perspectives. It seems almost like a trap giving you the option of writing an essay when what they really want is creativity and depth.


R2 applicant. Scratching my head as I weigh the benefits of powerpoint VS essay. So much that could go wrong with the ppt.. but as you mentioned, it shows more of an effort and the whole creativity thing. But then I have two other school deadlines clumped around Booth.. :shock:
