Congrats to everyone who has received a call so far. Would you mind updating your profiles so the data is captured correctly for those still waiting and for future reference?

I told myself once I got the call I would be productive at work.

FAIL. I'm less productive than before.

So true!

Congrats on your success! I've been following your tumultuous journey on your blog and I'm very happy to see all the anxiety and self-doubt was for naught!

To all the accepted candidates and future Boothies ---- CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!! Go and get yourself drunk today .... you deserve it!!!

And to all my friends still waiting ..... please don't lose hope. Many of you WILL get a WL and not an outright ding ..... and that's not THAT bad, if it makes you feel any better. I know many of my classmates here at Booth who were WL'ed in the first round and then came back with a bang in rd2 to receive an admit!! Hang in there!

I see you guys were in good hands with Cheets giving u company here. She is an absolutely amazing lady with the most insightful and helpful comments!!!! I cannot stress enough on all the points she has made so far .... from RWs to Orientation to Concentrations etc .... correct to the 'T'.

If there are any more questions .... shoot! Happy to help!

As one of the Admit Weekend Captains, I am really looking forward to meeting some of you then! Go BOOTH!!!!!

Goodluck to everyone that was assigned to the waitlist. As someone who sat on the Wharton waitlist through the entire summer two years ago, I can emphasize with the pain.

For those who were told yesterday that they were being awarded a scholarship, did the scholarship appear in your status update? I was told that I'd be receiving more info today but the status update has no reference to a scholarship. Was hoping to receive more detail (and written confirmation because I was in a state of shock when I was told!)

I received a scholarship as well and no, it is not in my application anywhere yet.

Just for my curiosity - anyone knows what's the highest scholarship Booth awards, in terms of dollar amount?

They say on the website the highest is \$30k/yr, but it's possible to get more than that.

Wondering the same ...

I believe they are separate. When you accept admission, you also have to pay your deposit...just like wen you submitted your app and had to pay your fee.

So, what does the waitlist even mean for international students?
I read somewhere that it can take 8 months.. .No time for Visa arrangements or scholarship. Feels like a ding.

No point in being pessimistic at this stage . Also their letter states we should hear about our status by the end of the next round. I am going to give it my best to try and make sure I am admitted.

Sorry - this may be completely irrelevant for some of you, but does anyone know if Booth has a designated gym? What is the gym situation like at Booth? (are there multiple gyms...sufficient barbells/dumbbells/machines..)

I've google-searched this but have not been able to find anything.

Thanks!

Thats what I was wondering. I need to cut down on all the flab put on due to working 3 years at IBD!

Booth does not have its own gym. Booth shares the gym with the rest of the University of Chicago and from what I understand from my tour, it's about a 15 minute walk from Harper Center. That said, if you choose to live in the "dorms" downtown Chicago, it is likely that your building has a gym. Millenium Park Plaza is, I belive, the most popular apartment building for students and does have a gym.

Cheetarah, do you recall how long after your admit the package was sent to you? I'm taking off for xmas vacation on Friday and I'm going to go stir crazy sitting on the beach knowing there is a package sitting in my mailbox!

You better enjoy your mai-tais no matter what!! Hmm, so I got the call on March 20 and according to the picture I posted on facebook my admit package came on March 26. Do not judge for changing my profile pic to my Booth admit package. The 20th was a rough day for me.
