In the whatsapp group, other people were discussing the issues with the app.

The first day team sent a link to use until the app works properly: http://chibooth.quickmobile.mobi

"Hello

I am looking and comparing Millennium Park Plaza, Columbus, Tides, Aqua, (?) and comparing prices vs facilities. Anyone found any info?
How do we find flatmates...
Also I dont want crazy flatmates, just nice people who are clean, easy going and quiet."
Yeah I was thinking of staying in Hyde park: cheap, safe, good gym. But if everyone seems to be going to the loop then i have no choice but to submit to peer pressure.
Also because it will be more fun (and expensive).

I am not sure if you are coming for First Day, but I live in Chicago and can give a bit of my own advice / opinions on neighborhoods...

Hyde Park: HP is the neighborhood where U of C is located. It is about 20 minutes south of downtown Chicago. HP has some nice parts, but is largely surrounded by higher crime neighborhoods. HP is definitely less expensive that neighborhoods in downtown Chicago, but it comes at a price and a trade off. Unless there are very specific and important reasons to be within walking distance of U of C, I would encourage students to consider living in downtown Chicago.

MPP/Aqua/Shoream (Lake Shore East): This is the area where most Booth students live. It is within walking distance of the train station that drops you on the doorstep of U of C. Apparently, this is the de facto 'Booth Campus.' Personally, I live about 1.5 miles west of LSE, and am not crazy about the neighborhood. It is pretty sterile and aside from a Mariano's grocery store, it lacks any real culture or community.

River North: This is probably a bit more expensive than Lake Shore East and it will probably require a cab/uber to get to campus, however, it is in the middle of the 'Chicago scene.' If you are looking to experience the city more, this is a good decision.

There are many more neighborhoods than the ones listed above. In fact, I would argue that the best Chicago neighborhoods are not ideal for Booth students due to the commute. Lincoln Park, Old Town, West Loop, Wicker Park, Buck Town, etc...

Feel free to DM me for more information!

Only around 5% of Booth students live in Hyde Park and it's mostly families who want a larger place/more quiet and don't mind about missing out on some of the social aspects of Booth. I personally wouldn't recommend it unless you have a family and are looking for that. 60% of Booth students live in the Loop (MPP and Lakeshore East Buildings), with 50% of those (or 30% of the entire class) living in MPP. I live in MPP and it's great because you're a 10 second walk away from the train and you get a dorm like feel while living in a highrise Chicago apartment. The LSE buildings are a bit nicer and more expensive but don't have as many Booth students. You'll get a lot more info on housing during First Day and there are housing tours on Saturday so hopefully you'll get the chance to check out a bunch of the buildings.

Has anyone had any luck asking Booth to match scholarship offers from other schools? I have a pretty significant offer from a peer school that really takes Booth off the table for me unless they match or come close. I notified the admissions office and they replied back with a "maybe, we'll get back to you". Just trying to get an idea if anyone has had success or if I should give up hope. The other school even has the same admitted students weekend, so I would love to know before having to make a decision on which to attend.


Did you try doing this/have any luck? Anyone else tried? I'm in the same boat with peer schools offering materially more.

Couple of posts:
best-business-school-laptop-189652-20.html
best-brand-of-laptop-for-mba-129679-60.html

Usually, PCs are preferable over Macs due to higher customability (but this can vary form one individual to another). Lenovo has a good range of laptops too and the surface 4 is a good hybrid (tablet+PC) for personal use.

There are sufficient number of options in the market and it all comes down to how much do you want to spend, what are the specs you have been recommended, how much modeling (excel) are you foreseeing for yourself etc.

Hi everybody!

Congrats on being in the class of 2018 at Booth.

I'm currently a Kellogg student looking to rent out a 2 bed/2 bath unit I own in downtown Chicago. The unit is in the Lakeshore East complex right next to where the Booth "dorms" are and extremely close to all public transportation and nightlife in the area. Let me know if you're interested in renting the unit out the next two years and I can send you more details.

The new 2016-17 cost of attendance is up. Doesn't look good if you are interested in leveraging domestic loans to pay for part of your cost of living expenses during school. The only expenses increased were school tuition, health insurance, and the student life fee. All cost of living oriented line items were held constant. In other words, you can go into more debt but you won't see any increased cost of living slack for it.

Kind of disappointed.
