Dead Ringer wrote:Ugh, both my UG's screwed up sending transcripts. In one office the lady found my written request (done and mailed correctly) that has apparently been lying around for three weeks. At my other an online request hadn't gone out two and a half weeks later, even though it said two days to process and send in the confirmation I received. A bit ashamed to have roundly abused staff at both offices but I was in a rage when I got an e-mail from U Chicago about it.
Did anyone else not get theirs in yet and are they worried about it?

Unless you are actively trying to avoid power outlets or flying from Seattle to Miami, you will probably never need battery life greater than 4 hours.

P.s. Can't wait to meet you all!!!

For Ikea: Probably not. I think that Ikea is either located in the NW suburbs (Schaumburg) or SW (Bolingbrook) and both locations would be a real pain to get to via public transit. If you decide to rent a moving truck, I would go up to NW suburbs because there is crap load of shopping in that area.
Target: Yes. There is one in the shouth loop on Roosevelt near all the museums.

1. For those of you who have moved into Regents already, how flexible is service elevator use? I highly doubt I'll be able to get all of my furniture delivered in a 2 hour block.

As for bars, I know of one from my last visit to HP. But it only had like 1 TV so I doubt it would be good for NFL Sundays (or, better yet, NCAA Saturdays). I'll keep my eyes open though!
