Writing a waitlist letter is as hard as writing another essay. Maybe even harder because most of your A+ stuff is already in the app package. Argh. :evil:

Tell me about it. As of right now my waitlist letter roughly reads:

Dear Adcom@ChicagoGSB,

Thank you for putting me on the waitlist.

Now, please admit me!

Awaiting your call.

Thanks,
yellowjacket

My wife just called, GSB sent another package with more material for admitted students.

I'll check later and tell you guys!


So, Kwam, I am curious, what was in the package? I haven't got any yet.

Sorry, it's been crazy at work...

It was a Chicago Guide (Not For Tourist guide) and some info about grad student's housing on UofC properties (such as the International House). At least my wife is thrilled with the quantity of Art Galleries in Chicago, it will make my life much easier :wink:

Good luck to you as well.

I am sure mine was too long. It was 2 pages single spaced. But I felt good about the content, so I just decided eventually to send it it. Don't have much to lose really.

Hey folks, maybe I'm posting out of topic, but I'm looking for input from locals. I need to find a new suit, I'm in Chicago (Bridgeport), and I'd like to spend somewhat less than $1200...ahem. Also I'm a 42XL, and it seem like a lot of [cheaper] places don't have the taller sizes. As a follow-up... good tailors for alterations? I'd appreciate feedback from any of you with more experience. I have a R3 interview next week at the GSB and my wife says my current blue suit isn't a good fit. I've just gotten used to bad fit since I'm pretty tall and have arms like an orangutan.

Paul Stuart in the John Hancock Tower is great. Otherwise, perhaps Macys on State St (around 20 N?) may have a large selection.

It might be a little bit tricky to find something under $1200 (although possible) - but, you could try Saks Fifth on Michigan. I've been a customer there for years and am quite happy.My arms are however not direct descendants of orangutans...

Also, Casual Male, although I've never been, explicitly caters to large sizes.. could consider buying there and then alterations elsewhere possibly?

Morris and Sons

'Old school' tailor and sales staff and a good selection at decent prices. I got pointed over there by a friend and they have done a great job - I highly recommend them.

FYI (it is on the 3rd floor of an office building - so you won't see any signs until you get to the door to be buzzed in).
