Hey guys - is anyone planning on going on a random walk? Are any couples going on a couples random walk? And does anyone know when they are going to release the new list?

As you can tell I'm excited about the random walk.

If I go to Booth, I'll def be trying to go on a random walk. Not sure where I want to go but it'll be fun!

Ikshwaku: Can students take more than 21 courses in GSB or everybody is expected to complete a maximum of 21 courses ?

Kurt: A student can absolutely take more than the 21 courses required. In fact many students take advantage of additional courses whether through formal registration or simply auditing.

Besides 21 (20 + Lead), one can take 3 more classes for "free". For those who stay in the Chicago area, they can be taken after graduation.

Actually, its now six. Three can be taken free while a student and 3 can be taken as a graduate.

Can they be taken anytime after graduation? For example, you move away after graduation and end up back in Chicago 10 years later.

3 can be taken while a student for free, and 3 can be taken as an alum for free - at any point.

That is great so for example as student we could take the 21 credit required for graduation and then audit 3 others classes?

You don't really audit them - you actually take them for a grade. As for how auditing works, as far as I know you can audit as many as you like throughout your entire time here, provided the professor lets you. Most professors will, but not all, and sometimes it depends on whether you are at the end or not (for instance, I know of a professor that lets you audit his class but only if you are in your last quarter)

I know a few people who are technically finished with school this quarter but are hanging around next quarter to take advantage of the 3 free courses. Mind you, to do that, it means taking heavy loads of classes in prior quarters, but some people do it. I also know some people who are finishing up now and are just going off to thailand for 3 months instead.

As for myself, I figure I'll save the free courses and maybe take some stuff in a year or two that might complement or fill in some gaps related to whatever I'm doing at work at that time.

Thanks for the explanation. It is good to hear that we can audit classes if the professor allows us, at least we can attend classes that we may not take if we were to make them fit in the 21 courses requirement. Thanks for clarifying that.

Has anyone received information about fellowships? I guess we are supposed to hear them soon...

I am not really hoping but I want to know when I should totally stop hoping...

I must say, the DAK looked more fun that Booth Admit Weekend -- judging only by the schedules. Also, what's up with us having to pay for dinner?

Based on the agendas, it seems that Booth Admit Weekend has more time than DAK built in for mingling with current students and future classmates. I think that could be helpful? Not sure how much time you had at DAK to meet students during the day?

Yeah I have to agree - the schedule they have doesn't sound as interesting as DAK. But honestly neither weekend had like an amazing agenda (like UCLA's admit weekend - beach volleyball, anyone?). But I agree with isa it does have more 'student mingling' time scheduled - I think it'll be fun! Everyone I've met so far matriculating are really social and nice - so I'm optimistic!

I have some (very) random questions. Couldn’t find answers anywhere, so would be great if you have any answers...

1) Say I wanna learn Spanish during my MBA. Are there any ways/classes/groups at Booth for this (or other foreign languages)? How does it work? Do many students learn foreign language during their MBA?

2) Apart from “normal” internship between 1st and 2nd year, is there possibility to have one more internship I manage to find one (e.g. Jun-Jul/Aug “normal” internship, Aug-Sep/Oct or maybe in a winter break another)? Is it doable?

3) What’s your view on pre-MBA internship? Does anybody do it?

4) Housing: do any students live in “dormitories” (i.e. campus housing) that Booth offers? I always thought that this is the best way to bond, but somehow have an impression that everybody rents something independently.

5) Does Booth do any sort of verification (e.g. Wharton does Kroll, Stanford does something over the summer)? Not that I have anything to hide, but just wanna know.

Well, as said - very random questions.

1. If you do an IMBA, you have to be fluent in a second language. You can take classes anywhere in the University, up to a limit. Don't ask me what that limit is.

2. It definitely is.

3. Haven't met anyone who did one, but couldn't hurt, right? If it's in a role that you'd like to recruit for, all the better.

4. No campus housing, but a lot of people are located in various areas. Specifically, Regent's Park and Millennium Park are two areas where a ton of b-schoolers live.

5. Yeah, it's some sort of background check. Look at Rhyme's post in last year's Chicago GSB thread for details. To paraphrase, they're looking for GLARING errors. For example, I don't remember how much I made 5 years ago, nor do I remember the specific dates on which my job started/ended. None of this matters. What they ARE looking for is you not working/going to school somewhere you said you did.
