I just officially signed up for Chicago Booth Live. Rhyme, how many prospective students usually attend? This sounds like an amazing event and I am really looking forward to it!

Is anyone getting together at Kellogg for lunch tomorrow? I have a friend who is a current student who is trying to rearrange his schedule to meet up, but isn't positive he can make it. I plan on arriving around noon.

I'm thinking we head to downtown Chicago and meet up Thursday evening -- sometime between 6-8pm perhaps? Or are you guys thinking earlier or later than that?

I have similar plans to you guys. Flying in to O'Hare early morning, Kellogg on Thursday, and Chicago Booth Live on Friday. And yes drinks will be good to share our stories of our busy life squeezing in essays/campus-visits in regular work life. If there is a finalized plan, could someone please PM me.

I will be at Side Bar Chicago from approximately 6pm to probably about 8pm or so. If you want to come by, come by. Attendance will include various alumni of Booth, Kellogg, Cornell, Michigan and a few others too probably.

I'm PMing everyone in this thread my cell #.

Kinda stupid question: for those who are flying/driving in, any suggestions on parking.

Entirely depends on where you are staying. Downtown, you'll be stuck paying your hotel rate, which is probably about $20 or $30 a day.

For those attending Kellogg (sorry a bit late today), I was able to find free parking on the street right across from Jacobs. It looked fairly plentiful if you headed across to the side streets perpendicular to Jacobs (Sheridan Rd).

Hopefully everyone had a great time in Chicago. Sorry I didn't get a chance to meet anyone in person, but I really had an informative and great time at Booth! Definitely my top school now.

Cheers!
