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?

There are classes you can take outside of hte GSB.
Quote:
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?

It is, but its generally rare. I've seen some people pull this off - and in some instances some pretty impresive combos (Lehman for 6 weeks , Bain for 6 more), but I'd venture its no more than a handful that do this.

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


If you can do it, go for it. People do, but again, its rare. You have to 'source' your own.


Quote:
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.


I only know of 1 person. Its a dorm... no one wants to live in a dorm with bathrooms down the hall. Go rent a place downtown.

Quote:
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.


I believe so, but I forget.

Is it up to me if only I find 2nd internship and want to go for it, or it's not recommended by Booth and therefore I might struggle with permissions etc.?

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?

You can take classes from other schools (though at a limited number) I know an Argentinian who-s planning to take Portuguese for Spanish Speakers, so you have here an idea.

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?

It is, I know some people who took 2 internships, but some of them lost 1 or even 2 weeks of classes. One specific person I know well, took an internship with sales and trading in NYC and later PE in South America, but he needed a VERY GOOD history to convince both parts, he received an offer from the NYC firm, but last time I spoke to him he is heading to a HF.

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

It's not very common, honestly I've heard about few cases, internship during MBA is more common - Rhyme is one example.

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.

Yes, I know people living at the International House, though I don't know if it is only for internationals, but hey, if you share an apartment you will pay around $1000 at most, I'm not living in one building where tons of students go and I'm paying around 25% less than usually students do.

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.

Yes. It was very smooth though, I think they call randomly recommenders, firms and etc. You will have to sign a document allowing Booth to make this verification.

Kwam - also big thanks to you!

BTW, my general observation is that Booth students are extremely responsive (even if you look at this Forum - post and immediately 2 great answers). But more importantly, Booth Administration is the best ever. My experiences/observations so far: queries re application - immediate replies; issues with on-line application - solved within 1 day; processing of documents in on-line app - within a day after documents arrived; Christmas break - AdCom works and hosts a chat to help R2 applicants; R2 deadline - Rose posts a message that AdCom is there for the candidates and will be replying to emails/calls, etc. Overall - amazing customer service. Overall - very impressive.

I'll be around, and my husband and I will be up for dinner and/or drinks. Any insight about partners events? Should he even bother?

I am going to try hard to make it in March. My parents fly in on Saturday, so if I leave Sunday, I'm only missing 1.5 days with them. I'm gonna try to make this happen. Oh, and the wife is coming along too!

garbus222, I forgot one thing, there is also a non official program in which students help one another with languages, so if you know a language you "teach" this language to somebody (I believe is more for practices purposes actually) and another student teach you the language you're interested at. I want to learn German - though I am waiting to see if I will need French next summer, is so I will learn French - and I may talk to some people from German Speaking countries to practice later. I'm talking as much in Spanish as I can to the Latin people - besides Brazil - this way my Spanish is not as rusty as it would be if I haven't practiced. Just bear in mind that the MBA is time demanding and learning a new language is also time demanding, especially in our age, but if you're like me who likes languages you will enjoy the MBA experience.

rhyme, I'm in for the dinner.

What time are you all planning to fly home on Sunday? Man, these trips out to Chicago are starting to get expensive! I'm taking on my MBA debt load early, it seems.

So Booth doesn't have any activities planned for Sunday? You can't get a direct flight? Where are you headed?

They do, but I wanted to get home in the late afternoon. I'm headed from DC.

That's great! Thanks kwam. I think it's very effective yet inexpensive way of learning new languages. Great to know!
