No - I was told that the bloodwork section is only required for athletes, and my form was approved already. All you really need is the basic physical.

Honestly dude, it takes a day to complete. All you need is that yellow card with all your inoculation history and then take that to a doctor for a quick physical. By quick I mean 30 minutes quick.

I'm banking that they cut us " reserve admits" some slack on the June 10th deadline. After all, I only got the admit info on June 2nd ish.

I just sent it in. I gotta believe they'll be cool about it.

yea nothing too serious. Just asked a bunch of questions, checked my vision and usual physical stuff, then pricked my finger to check if I had anemia, I think.

I left everything blank after "clinical tests" and I was fine.

I don't think you even need the physical. I spoke to a receptionist at Ganett and she told me all that was required was pages 1 and 4 of the health sheets and my immunization records. I called today and the woman I talked to said I just need to get a tetanus shot because its been 11 years and I'd be in compliance.

I don't think the June 10th deadline is a big deal. The only issue is the August 10th late deadline which results in a $100 fine if missed.

I think this has to be sent straight to the admissions office. That's what I did.

No. The email expressly says they must come directly from the registrar office of your UG to the Cornell admissions office.

Also for everyone living in Hughes... is there a certain time we should arrive? I know contracts start on the 18th but is there an order so that everyone is not piling in at the same time?

No he had the right of it. You'll soon learn that work days are still drinking days.

Hey all,

So just to clarify, we don't register for classes until orientation?

Both east and west end of the commons has a bus stop that'll get you to the law school pretty quickly. the East end has the 10, which runs every 6-12 minutes during class times, and will get you to the LS in 11 minutes. The west end has a few other routes that go almost directly to the law school. I think that bus runs every 10-15 min, but its a 5 minute ride to school

your cornell ID gives you unlimited bus rides your first year. Use them. Very convenient. check routes/schedules on http://www.tcatbus.com/
I lived in the commons this year, wasn't that bad except I lived right above Silky Jones, so i had thumping bass until about 2am most nights of the week. On the plus side i was normally up later reading anyway.
would recommend it.
