Nope, sorry doesn't count.

Just kidding. Huge congrats of course. Sorry I sort of abruptly hung up on you yesterday, you just happened to be calling right as I was in the middle of trying to get these two car dealerships to duke it out on price.

I know how lame it is when you call someone with great news and they deadpan, so my super apologies.

I noticed there is a GSB Live event on May 15th. Is that for admitted students only? I wanted to try to visit a couple schools in the spring (applying in the fall) and thought the Live event might be a good time to do so.

Chicago Booth Live does not appear on the Admit Calendar.

I searched Booth's webpage and found that this event is actually for prospective students.
Go here for more details, http://www.chicagobooth.edu/fulltime/visit/gsblive.aspx

It was a great event. I love Chicago and school's philosophy. It seems like the best fit for me (I hope so).
By the way, I've signed my lease in Aqua today... 49 floor.

It seems like we are all going to be neighboor! Crazy! I also got studio on 49th floor, which is supposedly the highest floor in rental section (50-52 will be handicap accessible).

I actually went to the building today to check out my future room and a convertible next to my room (it opened today! and only 25th floor was open for the viewing). I was seriouslly impressed; spacious bathroom, two large walk-in closets, etc. The only downside is that my living space is a bit smaller than I expected though it is definitelly big enough for 1 person. I kind of wished if they made the living space a bit bigger, considering that I thought I dont need much space in closets.

Other thing worth mentioning is that if you get northview, there are two tall buildings that may block the view. I forgot the name of the building right in front Aqua, but I was told it had 30 something story (seemed more like 35-39) whereas Swisshotel was located northeast from Aqua. This hotel is pretty high and apparently my 49th floor is only 2 floors higher than the hotel. So view of the lake from my room might be rather limited.

You should have brought Giulia there, so she can do a then and now comparison in about 25 years.
