Darn - I will be in Chicago that day but do not think I can attend because of a company event. I see it starts at 6:30 PM, what time do they usually go until?

Screw your company event. Who wants to hang out with a bunch of overweight and over the hill farts while they complain about their arthritis? Come hang out with us. Punk.

(note, they usually go to 8.30, but it can vary a lot)

LOL rhyme. I knew you were going to say exactly something like that. Unfortunately, they will know Im missing if I don't go - my company is pretty small. The only thing is it starts at 7:00 PM, so Im thinking I could go in at 7:30 PM and no one would notice I'm late. But would 45 minutes at the GSB event between 6:30 PM and 7:15 or so be worth the while?

BTW, Rhyme, I have a friend who plans to apply to GSB and wants to be at the event. I see that the registration for the event is full. Are you guys going to be strict about pre-registration?

No worries, he can definitely come. I expect a few people who RSVP will be no shows anyway.

You know why your company is small? Because your sales force is made up of old people who go to dinner at 7pm and then go to bed!!!!

Just tell them that you've got a GREAT sales lead and you are meeting with some "potentially high net worth individuals interested in business", and "golly gee, I'd love to come to dinner but I think this is great opportunity for us, would it be alright if I did that instead?" and when you come back, just tell them that you are waiting to hear back. By the time you get back to the office, everyone will have forgotten about it anyway.

Or... depending on how things go, the event might last a few hours... maybe after dinner is an option to?

Have you actually tried to fill it out? When I click "proceed" after the contact info screen nothing happens. I think they may have released it before it was finished.

Hey so am I understanding this right? (sorry if this sounds dumb!) I can start the application - but not "submit" it and just get the basic demographic type of stuff filled out?

Cheers,
ac.

Thanks rhyme for hosting this reception!
I had a suprisingly good time - I expected something like the more boring formal recruiting/networking events I went to during undergrad and instead, got a pretty laid-back affair with good conversation I got the chance to speak with 4 current GSB students and with rhyme's wife (at least I think she was his wife! )....alas, I didn't get a chance to speak with rhyme himself - he was too popular!

So all of the GSB-related folks I spoke with were v. nice, welcoming and informative. They had different perspectives on what makes GSB great, the application process, and life in b-school. I got to hear lots of fun stories about trips to the galapagos (as part of random walk), the bidding system for choosing classes, recruiting events, clubs, etc. The biggest application-related take-away for me was that in my essays, I have to demonstrate the value I'll add to the class of 2011. They can very easily fill the class with lots of students with great GPAs and GMATs but they look for diversity in assembling the class. So the question I have to answer is: what value do I add to the class? What experiences/ambitions do I have that make me different from everyone else that's applying? (this may be common knowledge for many of you, but I realized it this weekend)

I think as a result of the event and interacting with the current students, I like the school a WHOLE lot more and am really excited to apply!

Anyone else attend? What did you think?

cheers,
ac.
PS if anyone's interested in my general notes from the day/evening, let me know - I'm happy to post those as well

I'd gone to the Happy hour in New York last December and I would highly recommend for anyone who plans to apply to Chicago to make it there. Helped me get some different perspectives.
