Yea, I think it shouldn't be a problem, but maybe you should check with the school just in case.... Or in my case, I'd go and if anyone asks, just tell people your mother is from South America or something...

For the community involvement section, how much space is everyone using? I've got 7-8 paragraphs (approx. 650 words) does anyone think this is too much?

I'll be there at 7am or so probably in the student lounge - ask someone where the pool tables are.

Rhyme, thanks for the valuable class information +1.

I'm really appealed to Schrager's class as Entrepreneurship is why I want to go back to school, however, I was wondering how valuable are the Chicago GSB Overview and the Student Panel.
What are your thoughts on this?

Makes me feel special and want to apply now....

Generally, no, but typically people say 500 words is a good optional essay limit.

That said, in my year there was some question about having traveled abroad. It was clearly intended as a short answer type question, but I still submitted something like 700 words anyway.

Hey rhyme,
Is LPF always at the same location? When I went in Nov, 2007 after GSB Live it was at some lounge in downtown Chicago. You wouldn't happen to know the name of that place would you?
