Sannuzzo, there is an admitted students page on facebook. You should have received an email from an Adcom member with a link to join the group.

Just booked flight for Admit Weekend, decent AA fares from NYC to O'Hare. What hotels do people usually frequent for these weekends?

Check with Booth. They may have a deal with one of the downtown hotels for discounted rates. If they don't have anything then the Chicago Hilton on Michigan Ave is pretty close to public transportation is an easy ride up to campus. If you can find a roommate for the weekend that usually defrays costs.

Hi Possible Future Boothies,

I am a current Boothie (2nd year) and wanted to let you all know about student-hosted events happening over the next week or so.

The events take place in a variety of cities, are really casual, and meant for both admitted and prospective students.

I'm going to be at the Seattle event:
January 2nd
6:00 to 7:30 pm
Cactus in South Lake Union

Check out the website for other cities, and be sure to register so we have an idea of the number in attendance. Sorry, I haven't posted enough to be able to include the link. If someone wanted to tag on with it, that would be awesome.

Feel free to email me with any questions at agovier@chicagobooth.edu. Hope to see you there!

Admit Weekend - Hotels [#permalink] New post 24 Dec 2012, 21:24
Hey (Prospective) Boothies,

Anyone interested in sharing a hotel for Admit Weekend? I'm flying in from DC on Thursday, Feb 7 and leaving on Sunday, Feb 10. I'm planning on staying right next to Gleacher Center. Any ideas on which hotels most people will be staying at?

24/male/non-smoker here. PM me if you're interested / have any questions.

Check with Booth to see if they've arranged any discounted rates at hotels. Last year they negotiated a decent rate with the Chicago Hilton for admit weekend 2. Just a heads up in case you're looking to further cut costs.

Just noticed that Chicago Booth allows adding a third recommender... Have any of you added the third recommender? If my third recommendation is strong, is it advisable practice?

I'm also looking for a roommate, but for admit wknd 1. Also flying in Thursday and leaving Sunday, looking to stay close to Gleacher Center and/or the Doubletree that everybody is thinking of according to the fb group. 24/female/nonsmoker.
Thanks and looking forward to meeting you all!

Good luck to everyone wailtisted! To those who was dinged: reapply. I'm a living example of successful reapplication. Booth does like both waitlisters and reapplicants. Do visit the school.


Could you talk a little bit more about what you did in your new application? Since getting dinged last year I've talked to several students, visiting the schools, got new recs, and writing all new essays. Thanks

Has anyone who created a PPT included any animations? I'm trying to determine if animation would fall under "motion images" or if that refers to something like embedded images and video clips.

I was wrong. Things have changed this year (things keep changing year to year and it's hard to keep track of). The document will be viewed electronically. However, they cannot support imbedded videos, music, or motion images. I'd stay on the safe side and leave out anything that might be moving.
