I was asked to repost this here:
I just realized that BU starts pretty late! Registration is Aug. 31, orientation Sept. 2. It reminds me of UCLA (we were on quarters/always started around Labor Day). I guess moving into a place on Sept. 1 isn't that bad, then. It'd be a pain to move right in between those two days, but not the end of the world because then it looks like we'd have that long weekend (Sept. 3-5) to organize/get settled (the 5th is Labor Day) before classes start Sept. 6!
BTW, I'm glad to see this thread become a little more active... I hope more people join in!
