Hey, I just figured out how to do this. You can't change your username, but you can change your e-mail address to whatever you want.

There's probably a more straightforward way to do this, but try this:

- Log into the portal (http://boothportal.chicagobooth.edu)
- In the search box (upper right corner), search for 'Manage Account'
- One of the results should be 'Manage Your Account, Manage Email Alias and Cnet IDs (Properties)'...click that
- Click 'Create your E-mail Alias'
- Make sure that the new e-mail alias that you want to use is selected as preferred
- Click Save

You'll still use the username they assigned you to log into your e-mail account (or to set it up on outlook/macmail/etc.), but any mail that you send/receive from now on will be from your preferred alias.

Still did not get the acceptance package...
Did you receive the package through FedEx?
Maybe I should ask adcom members about delivery status?

I just got it today too - I'm impressed, because I live on the other side of the world and it got here quick. Great stuff. I'd like to make it to Admitted Students Weekend.

Mine came USPS priority mail (i.e. I had to sign for it)


Thanks, I will contact AdCom to find my New Year package:)

Do we know what the deal is with the background check?

I mean does it happen after we submit the deposit, or is it going on right now?

Not that I lied or anything, but you know you can never be too sure about crap not happening.

Hey guys, congrats on the admit. Does any of you has the "nice problem" of being admitted to Kellogg and Booth? how are you handling the admit weekends? (are you choosing one or are you going to both?)

I have been admitted to both and I think I am going to split the admit weekend. However, I am not quite sure which day I am going to attend at which school. Booth's website doesn't seem to have specifics regarding the visits, but I would guess Friday will be class visits and Saturday will be more about housing, financial aid, and such. Anyone else have any more information?

Hey guys if you have the Admit weekend itinerary, I can try to let you know what not to miss. Make sure to sign up for a Random Walk trip if you're here on the Saturday, best chance of getting your top choice!

Is a list of the random walk trips for this year available yet? I can only find 2011.

Yep, here you go! We're still building the profile pages and details, but here is a list of what the trips will be!

Thank you! Do I have to first accept the admission offer from Booth in order to signup for a random walk during admit weekend?

Hi all, I am admitted to Booth and Kellogg and planning to attend Kellogg Friday/Booth Saturday. Anybody else in the same boat and/or looking to share a hotel room?

Hi Spivey181, I'm on the same boat, but I decided to attend only Booth's admit weekend.

The Random Walk destinations look pretty amazing. I have no idea how I'll be able to make my mind up, though hopefully I'll be able to filter a few out once the itineraries come out.

Does anyone know what trips have been the most popular in the past? It sounds like Brazil is a very popular choice, but I also don't think you can go wrong given how many awesome destinations are on the list.

^I think I'm going to sign up for Peru, Brazil, and Argentina (in that order). South America is one of the few continents that I haven't been to yet.

I e-mailed the Random Walk coordinator to inquiry about signing up during admit weekend. He said that if you sign up during admit weekend, you'll likely secure your #1 choice. He also said that in order to do this, you don't have to accept your offer to attend Booth yet, but you do have to place a $250 deposit with them via cash/cc/check.

Hey all! I hope you don't mind a Kellogg admit crashing the party for a sec. Since Kellogg's and Booth's admitted students weekends coincide a couple people thought it might be a good idea for us GCers to get together for drinks Saturday night (2/11) in Chicago.

I realize that we're all going to be busy meeting our potential classmates but I thought it might be nice to also meet the people behind the screen names that helped get us through R1 apps. The end of the weekend is probably the best time for a get together.

Who's up for it?

Hi all,

For those who are still looking for accommodation in Chi-town during Admit Weekend: send you a pretty nice offer from Crown Plaza high-rise, check this out:

Hope this info helps.

Unfortunately, I have no opportunity to visit Admit Weekend. Have a nice time!

I just got into the Peru random walk!!

I like how they sent me an e-mail on Wednesday to tell me that they need the remaining $2,750 that Friday. Not a lot of time to move funds around.
