*** It's a great day for personal MBA meetings! See you this evening! ***
UPDATE #1: This event is more of an opportunity for us to meet with admissions directors from top business schools (rather than it being a "traditional" Meetup, in the sense that we meet and "do" something together). As such, there really is no plan for the event on my end, other than what QS Top MBA Connect (the host of the event) has on the agenda. They approached me with this offer, and I felt it would be a good thing to pass along to our members who might be interested. Don't forget, for free admission, you must follow the instructions listed in the event posting below!

Closest Metro stop is Metro Center (Red line). We suggest Metro / cabbing if you can (especially during rush hour). We also recommend using wmata.com for travel planning. Don't forget to account for Metro, traffic, and parking delays. If you are driving, you will need to find street parking or a garage.
