LA to Boston to Chicago? Talk about taking the long way around.

Out of curiosity how much are all those plane fairs going to set you back?


Its sort of the long way, but it was how the schedule worked. I figured I might as well hit the big friday GSB Live thing at Chicago if I had the option. Plus, I live in Seattle, so I have to head back towards the west coast anyway.

Airfare wasn't too bad, about 600-700. Hotels are going to be worse I think.

Classes have started, so if you do know a current student it may be possible to sit in on a class.

I think squeezing MIT and Columbia is going to be difficult. You are assuming that you will spend enough morning-noon time in MIT, be able to cover the distance between Boston and NYC and still reach Columbia in time to make the trip worthwhile. I highly doubt that. ps You won't have the energy to do much at Columbia after the tiring day spent at MIT and the driving.

Precisely !
The program in MIT gets over by 1pm. So assuming I leave board around 1:30ish and account for traffic, I should reach NYC by 6, to catch the 6:30 info session.
The ideal plan would have been to visit Columbia the next day, but unfortunately CBS has its on campus infosessions only on Mondays and Fridays.
But again, I am attending the Sep 5th CBS session in the bay - so thinking of skipping Columbia for HBS.

I so envy the East coast people !!

True ! in fact they have a session on the 20th of Sep if you are interested.
Nevertheless, I am planning to visit the Adcom for their 3pm infosession, meet some random students in the campus and tag along for a class visit :) My entire point is to let the AdCom to know that I was there and guage as much of the campus vibe as possible.
