Very excited to be able to post in this thread!

For those of you who attended the first admit weekend, do you think it's doable for me to split time between the Kellogg and Booth events (i.e. one day in Evanston, one day in Hyde Park)? I wish the two schools could have coordinated a bit!

Just skip Kellogg If 2nd round weekend is the same as 1st, try to skip the housing tour day (Saturday for us). I thought the friday was better because it was all on campus and a better chance to meet people and get a feel for everything. Either day will still give you a chance to interact with new admits and get a feel for the culture.

In the same boat here, will have to split between K and B for that weekend. IMO, the order in which you visit will make pretty big difference tho, I most likely will go to Kellogg first.

Any thoughts on where to stay? I'm thinking of booking a hotel north of the Loop but still pretty close, so I'll just commute for each of the days. Chicago in the evenings and that way I can more easily play on Sunday!

There will be shuttles to campus from the Gleacher Center, so you might want to stay near Gleacher.

2) MDA City Apartments-online, this place looks really great. In person, I found the units and the ammenities to be pretty beat up. It's significantly more expensive than MPP. There was broken glass/beer bottles in the community room. I would not consider living there. I believe it was $75 to join the waitlist. 3) Shoreham/Tides - This was the nicest of those I visted in the Loop. It's more expensive than MPP. Tons of closet space, and the properties are extremely well-maintained. W/D in unit. This would be a good area for people with dogs, as it's set back from Michigan Ave and there's a big park that is shared by all the condo buildings in this area. I found the area to be very homey and cozy. However, since it's set back a little bit there's a little more walking involved to get to get to Public Transit - although she said there's a Pedway entrance nearby. I hear these buildings are popular among Boothies, but not as popular as MPP. Parking (for an un-reserved but guaranteed covered spot) is about the same price as MPP, but you can self-park. Free waitlist. 4) Astoria Tower in the South Loop - I visited because the finishes were nice. But ultimately it's not a great location and not worth the extra $$to me. 5) Columbus Plaza - I didn't actually visit the interior. I stayed at the Hyatt right next door and boy is that area DEAD at night. It's not far from MPP at all, but since it's the same price as MPP and MPP is in a better location, I personally wouldn't consider it. If you set up your own private tours when you visit, I planned one every hour on the hour. Some leasing agents might keep you walking around forever - so just make sure they know they only get 45 minutes of your time. Shoreham/Tides will take the longest because there are two buildings but we were still able to finish in 45 minutes and wrap up remaining questions via email. After you have considered the buildings and inquired about their waitlist fees, you can make the decision to join one or multiple waitlists. The waitlists essentially give you notification of available units before they go out to the general public. I think how each building runs their WL is different, so be sure to ask about it if you are curious. Last edited by Top10MBACandidate on 28 Mar 2013, 08:45, edited 5 times in total.

Congrats! Is anyone worried about the social scene at Booth? I hear really mixed reviews. Interested to hear if fellow admitted students share my concern. Thanks! Not worried at all. Go to admit weekend and your mind will be at ease. I promise.

The deadline for the Form is May 1st - are we supposed to sort out the other schools by then?

The R2 deposit deadline (2k) is also due May 1. Some people pay the deposit but decide later to go to a different school (yes, you lose your$$). Unless you want to do that, I would advise figuring out where you want to go by may 1! Usually, people pay deposits but don't end up coming because they got somewhere in R3 they wanted to go to more, or got in off the WL of another school they wanted to go to more.

Thanks! I was missing the deposit information piece - I figured out from last year's thread that such information will be sent separately by AdCom, and only after addressing all additional info pieces I should start filling in the Response Form. This setup was not clear from the acceptance letter though.

Hi everyone! Setting up shop here.
I can't tell what I'm more excited about, the fact that I got into Booth or the fact I get to be a part of rhyme and cheetarah's network

Just wanted to say hi, and that I'm looking forward to meeting all of you at admit weekend!

Top10MBACandidate, thanks for the apartment run-down... I live in Chicago now and am frankly pretty worried about living in the Loop--the Loop at night is the worst!--but I do feel like I'll get the best experience if I'm living around a lot of other Booth students. At least I'll have the opportunity to do plenty of building-scoping on my own time...

I would tend to agree - the Loop isn't particularly lively at night and I had an unpleasant experience with the after-dark loiterers (nothing major, just enough to dampen my perspective of the Loop area). I think my top choice of neighborhoods would be the true River North area - but it's quite spendy. Plus, I agree with you - I want to live near the rest of the Boothies - so the Loop it is. At least it's close to River North!
