I’m a seasoned First Day volunteer and I jump at every other opportunity to talk with prospective students about Booth. So, I’m very familiar with the kinds of questions prospective Booth students have. In this post, I have made an attempt to answer the most frequented asked questions with regard to Chicago living.

The students involved on the Admit Weekend Planning Committee take a “Co-Captain” role in a specific, key aspect of the Admit Weekend experience, from neighborhood and housing tours to partners’ programming.
Several of our Co-Captains offer reflections on their experiences and discuss why all admitted students should come to Admit Weekend!
