Booth / Columbia Student Life? [#permalink]

Hey,

Longtime lurker here. I've recently been admitted to CBS, soon interviewing to Booth.

While there are plenty of discussions on Booth / CBS here and elsewhere, I wanted to focus on social life differences - a major factor for me in deciding between schools.

I've heard nothing but amazing things about student life at CBS, the students' friendliness and willingness to engage, their world tour. How about Booth?

Can anyone share their impressions on the matter, on either school?

Thanks!

Hi kbpps,

The student life at Booth is also extremely vibrant! So many opportunities to engage and take lead roles in student clubs, travel the world with your classmates, explore the city's diverse neighborhoods and lively restaurant scene. Most students live downtown in the central Loop area and so there is no shortage of activities.

Feel free to PM me with specific questions -- I'm a Booth alum and grew up in the Chicago area, so I am a little biased :-) but happy to help as you weigh your options.

One thing to also keep in mind here is that both school have more of a city vibe in the sense that students will be less concentrated in one central campus like a Kellogg so they will both have a slightly less tight knit community based simply off campus style.

I would say both have strong positives on the student community side but this decision will largely come down to what city you want to live in. Both major metropolis but are still fairly different and provide access to different experience so keep this in mind as you make your decision.
