Day 2:
Dinners/Parties: Pretty fun! Went to some interesting Chicago bars, in different areas of the city. The Booth current students and fellow admits certainly know how to party! Fellow GCF'ers were a fun crew too. One thing the various bars, etc brought to my attention (other than I need to drink more water ;) ) is that the Chicago kids really do hang out all over the city. There's not just one bar or one area where they go. Sure, after some time, groups will develop preferences for certain bars/neighborhoods over others. But generally speaking, the entire city is your playground.
isa.


Different groups may have different preferred bars, places and neighborhoods. However, the TNDCs happen all over the city, a situation that makes you one know many different places in the city. There are also some LPFs outside the HC, I remember one at the Buddy Guys blues house, and also one at Carnivale where I drank too many Mojitos celebrating carnival :-D .

Soni - glad you're coming. Sorry I didn't get to meet you at ASW...or maybe I did. Dunno.

A couple of follow up comments:
-I was prepared for the LEAD activity to be lame, and--let's face it--it probably didn't teach us much about business or leadership. Maybe it was a chance for me to step up and take charge of something. But it was paper airplanes and I just didn't care. That aside, it was a good chance to bond with my squad mates, and that's something that I appreciated the rest of the weekend. With several hundred people around, it's really nice to start with a base of 10 or so who you're familiar with. So I won't expect LEAD to be revolutionary, but I think I'll make some good friends there.

-I missed the Thursday night GC dinner, so I didn't know about rogue gathering during the alumni lunch. But I ended up sitting next to MeddlingKid, who's a very pleasant guy. Our guy from UA was engaging (I think we use that word a lot around here) and the other admits peppered him with questions while I tried to eat as much free food as I could.

-Several people have commented about the culture of collective pride/individual humility. That was definitely my impression too, and it's refreshing. It's one of the aspects of Chicago that makes me really excited to be a part of the school.

I'm looking forward to meeting more of you soon. Now I need to hunt down Rhyme's guide to class bidding. Who's joining me in turbo micro this fall? :-D

Sounds like everyone had a blast at admit weekend. Does anyone know when the next admit weekend is? Hopefully I'll have a reason to attend.


April 24th-25th


so DAK 2 and Chicago's admit weekend coincide! Strange.


I know!! this totally sucks! Apparently this is not the first time the admit weekends have clashed for the two schools and there is no love lost between them. I have already registered for DAK II but if I end up getting into Booth as well then I'd have to do some serious thinking. Its still a good problem to have though :)

Which one is the turbo econ? I will take the regression stats instead of regular stat and will take footnote and M&A accounting right away. I am not sure if I should also skip the intro to econ. I think the course curriculum says that not many people wave it and that you need a very good understanding of econ to do that.

Any ideas?

Turbo is 33101 with Kevin Murphy. I already have the Pindyck and Rubinfeld textbook that he uses, so I thought I'd spend some serious time on review before school starts. We'll see if I can actually follow through on that, though.

Any current students out there who have thoughts on turbo? Everyone says it involves a lot of outside work, so I'm prepared for that aspect.

I hear you, I am brushing up on my accounting and stats. Now, I may want to brush up on my econ too... hummm it sounds very very optimistic...

Isa - big thanks for your post re AW! Great! Terp, Wedbud - thanks also for you insights. Good to read your impressions.

Isa, you mentioned that current students were quite open about what they don't like about Booth. If you have a minute (and remember), could you post some of their findings?

Yeah, but it's trending downward over time. If I put it off until 2010 maybe it'll only be 8-9 hours. :P
