Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Chicago and Northwestern aren't using the standard Carnegie unit (the 120 hour system for a bachelors degree) for their courses. I assume they would translate to 2 or 3 hour classes, and then the tuition there isn't so bad.
I am in the same situation and I chose Kellogg over Booth. In my view as well, Kellogg is more open about employment opportunities for part timers than Booth, just check the employment reports from last year.
Also make sure you understand the curriculum strengths of both programs. Generally speaking Booth is more quant driven/analytics whereas Kellogg focuses more on general management/team collaboration.
Finally, do a class visit and check for culture fit. I had a stronger connect with the Kellogg students and this is important. In the end, the network will play a major role once you are close to graduation.
In terms of facilities, Booth rocks! The Gleacher center is awesome whereas Wieboldt hall is a historic building. However, facilities was not high on my decision making so I ignored this point.
I can fully empathize with your situation since it is not an easy decision to take.
Also in the same situation. Feeling very blessed to be accepted to Booth Evening and Kellogg Saturday. Heavily leaning towards Kellogg (but still have until this Friday to decide). After visiting a class at both schools, talking with club presidents, and meeting current students, I have a warmer feeling about spending the next 2-3 years at Kellogg.
Part of it was fit, part of it was the majors I want (luckily all available in the condensed Kellogg Saturday program), and most of it was just a gut feeling. I have to admit that I spent a lot of time looking at what other people did to make their admit decision, but it looks like it will ultimately come down to my own intuition.
Congrats testprep and abhojraj! Are you in the summer evening or saturday program? Traveling from out of state or living in the city? Let me know if you guys/gals are interested in grabbing a drink before the hectic schedule begins!

Caviat: I was on the Booth PT students Adcom and have a Booth MBA, so I am biased.
I have physically seen both schools and much prefer Booth's facilities and location. But the answer lies in what really matters to you. I know for sure the same profs. teach in all programs at Booth, I am not sure about Kellogg. I do get the sense that Kellogg really builds a stronger school spirit, but I am of the opinion that you get what you put into it. Booth is thought to be more rigorous and quantitative and Kellogg is focused on marketing and teams, but both programs have aspects of both. You have been to both places. Now that you have done al of this due diligence and essay writing I will provide you with an odd suggestion. Go with your gut. From your comments, you seem to be leaning to Kellogg. It is a great school. It pains me to say this, but go with your intuition. Lastly, Kellogg has an awesome Dean.
