Does anyone know when scholarship, fellowship or financial aid info goes out to accepted students? Some schools send it at the same time as the acceptance letter or a day after. Is it supposed to go out before we have to decide on the school or after you've accepted?

The admitted students website, in conjunction with the Booth student handbook, has the most comprehensive information available. You might have to make your depost in order to get access to the website; I'm not sure (I made my deposit already).

There are three sources of financial aid at Booth: merit-based scholarships, fellowships, and outside financial aid. Admitted students are notified about their selection for merit-based scholarships when they're notified that they were admitted. Fellowships are awarded to incoming students who fit a specific profile, and these awards typically have a family's or corporation's name attached. Fellowship decisions are revealed after the class has pretty much been selected; I've read they will be revealed May 1. "Outside financial aid" refers to loans and any scholarships/fellowships from outside (non-Booth) sources.

Some extra info from page 35 of the student handbook:

1. Scholarship awards are applied to tuition
charges only.

2. If students have been awarded a full-tuition
scholarship for two years, the award will pay for
a maximum of 20 courses, excluding Leadership
Effectiveness and Development (LEAD).

3. The total sum of all scholarship awards from all
sources cannot exceed tuition charges for any
quarter.

4. Recipients may only receive one Chicago Booth
scholarship or fellowship per year. If a student
receives:

a. A Chicago Booth scholarship and an additional
outside scholarship, the combination of the
awards cannot exceed tuition.

b. A Chicago Booth scholarship and an outside
scholarship that requires Chicago Booth to
match the award, the Chicago Booth scholarship
will be increased only if it does not already
meet the amount necessary to match the outside
scholarship. Total awards cannot exceed tuition.

c. A Chicago Booth scholarship and a Chicago Booth
or external fellowship for a greater amount, the
higher fellowship will replace the Chicago Booth
scholarship the student was previously awarded.

Only Full-Time MBA students are eligible for
scholarship awards.

Wow! Others have answered that question but that is by far the most comprehensive and clear answer. Thanks NonYankee!

You're welcome! After dinner I simply got in bed and started reading the handbook, intermittently dozing off... I'm quite the party animal!

One takeaway from the above info that might give people hope: Booth awards one scholarship OR fellowship to admitted students... meaning that there's still a chance for those without $$$ to get some! :)

Excited to be a part of this thread! how many of you are planning to attend the welcome reception on Thursday evening (Apr 18th)? I'm just wondering if it's worth taking the extra day off work, or if Friday & Saturday will be enough.

I'll be there, but the decision was pretty straightforward for me: I live in the Chicago area and I have a non-paying job with an irregular work schedule!

I hope to see you there!

I'll be there too. I have to imagine there will be another "informal social event" (heh) afterwards as well... just more opportunities to start gelling with people.

Just a contrasting opinion, I went to R1 admit weekend and I don't think it's necessary to attend the Thursday night reception if it requires you to take another day off. Since we have 2.5 weeks of orientation - I think we'll have plenty of chances to meet people. Also, I don't think they create that event to encourage people to get there by Thursday night, I think they do it so people who do happen to arrive by then aren't twiddling their thumbs in their hotel room!

So that's my opinion. But I do everything I can to protect my vacation time because I like to travel as much as I can. Depends on how precious that vacation time is to you.

Welcome! We're glad to have you! Do you plan to attend ASW and/or matriculate?

Thanks! I'll definitely be attending ASW and I'm 70% likely to matriculate at Booth.

A question to those who attended the R1 ASW and current Boothies - if I were to only pick one day of the two, which would everyone recommend? Is Friday typically a lot livelier?

This is a rather quiet thread for one of the world's finest schools! Is everyone still out celebrating?

Is anyone attending the NY admitted students event on Wednesday?

Yeah we could definitely turn it up. Anyone else hiding out back there?

Coincidentally, I actually did just get done celebrating with my wife. Over frozen yogurt. Hashtag grown.

I'm in Boston so I'll be at the event on Tuesday. Htale not sure if you saw, but someone mentioned on the main FB group that he set up a group specifically for NYC admits, you may want to check that out. And congrats!

They mailed R1 out pretty quick. A week to ten days depending on how far the packet had to travel.

Just one little trinket as far as merchandise goes..I won't spoil the surprise..
