Another suggestion is to take a airport shuttle from O'hare. They'll take you directly to Uchicago and it's cheaper than a cab. I think it's ~$20. They also won't take as long as public transit and your don't have to transfer.


Do you know if they run from midway as well?

If you're getting in from Midway, I would recommend just taking the 55 Garfield bus. It's pretty convenient and easy (you literally ride it from the airport to basically the last stop). I'm sure there are shuttles from Midway too, but I've never taken it, so don't know about the pricing.

Yeah the email came through right when I posted. There is no scholarship connected with this one, but I was fortunate enough to have received another massive scholarship from UChi. Really making things interesting...maybe worth a last minute flight to asw

Is there a specific shuttle service that you would recommend?


+1

Also, anyone know if you can schedule oRD -> UChicago shuttle ahead of time?



lastsamurai - congrats! I just had my Doctoroff phone call and am really hoping I get an offer as well.

Wasn't expecting a Doctoroff offer, but have yet to hear anything back. Was anticipating an April 1st response. Anybody else in the same boat? I'd just like to hear from them either way.

Booked mine recently too! For some reason it was significantly cheaper to fly to O'hare, so I'm hoping that it won't be too bad getting into the city.

Of all the good events going on at ASW, I HIGHLY recommend checking out trivia on Friday. The faculty are playing the student's championship team and one of my favorite professors is facing off. Should be pretty fun.

Wow, just got the Doctoroff Invite. 99.8% heading to Chicago now. Interviewed early this week but have very unique, entrepreneurially oriented WE.

Over 2 hours by public transportation ($5), and about 1 hour by cab ($50-60).
