GMAT club meeting 2007 - participants, place and time? [#permalink]
13 May 2007, 00:37
Please respond first:
Where would you like a GMATClub 2007 get together to take place?
Then read on:
Please if you answer the poll, reply to the message stating that you are interested and if you'd be joining x1 (alone), x2 (with "significant other"), x3+ (with family)
Ok, so we have finally gathered momentum to organize a get together. Praetorian has even offered a sponsorship of upto 1500 bucks for collective spending during the event (thanks Praet and GMATClub).
But now we need to pick up the place and time for the meeting and get an idea of how many we may be (notice "may" as in initial estimation of people and not in "we'll bill you and you won't be able to get a refund").
I'll post two different polls: this is one is to vote for the city and have an initial count of possible attendants (although Chicago seems ahead so far, I'd like to give us all some opportunity to choose). There'll be another poll to choose the date.
The shortlist I've prepared is based on:
- my perception of the schools were most G'clubbers will end up and the regions which would be convenient based on their current residence,
- interesting cities in the area (I know, this is subjective, but hey! so is life!)
- trying to reduce the options to a manageable amount.
I'll also cluster some cities by region to reduce options and we'll be able to fine tune these once we decide on the region.
It looks overwhemingly East Coast for now. I wonder whether the West Coasters would rather go to Chicago than further east (what's the difference in flight times between, let's say , LA - Chicago and LA - NYC?). If that was a factor we could hold a "fight to the finish poll" in between those two (Chicago vs NYC). I'm also assuming that Chicagoans would rather go to NYC or Boston than to LA.
Another thing, since rhyme's away and he's the G'Club's Chicago Ambassador, I'm gonna root for Chicago a bit.
08ers: if you expect to meet rhyme and get his bulletproof advice for 08's season, then vote Chicago. <SNIP>
I could use some bulletproof advice. Maybe the soiree could include an educational event where the '07 admits share what they learned so it could be resident here for '08 and beyond. Perhaps a seminar or roundtable that could be archived as a podcast? I would volunteer to assist such a project in a support role.
