With graduation around the corner, I hope I can offer a few thoughts that admits and applicants may find useful as you consider your time at Chicago Booth. Twenty-two months in business school is a truly short time, but it is a short time that can greatly enhance your life. As I reflect on my time on the Midway, here are a few of my takeaways.
From Social Enterprise to Healthcare to Private Equity or Venture Capital, there are a number of lab courses across a range of subjects here at Booth that give you a chance to work on real issues with real companies. These courses offer a unique opportunity to learn and do. And for a career switcher like me, they are an invaluable part of the Booth Experience.
Chicago has been called a “City of Neighborhoods” due to the development of ethnic enclaves as the city grew ever larger in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Today you still find vestiges of that time in names like Ukrainian Village, Chinatown, and Greektown. If you are looking for a neighborhood feel in Chicago – and by that I mean residential areas, where you can walk tree-lined streets with central business corridors – you have a lot of options.

Hello everyone, I’m Robey and I’m glad to see so many people here. I’m a second year student and before coming to Booth, I spent about 7 years in the Navy as a submarine officer.
Twelve percent of the Class of 2017 lives in South Loop, and so do I. If you are considering where to live in Chicago, South Loop is a neighborhood you should certainly consider. The neighborhood is growing and changing constantly.
