Yeah, I thought it was a little brazen of them to publicly let everyone know "Hey, there are a bunch of SSNs out there, happy hunting!" Oh, and they made it EXTREMELY obvious how to find them if you wanted to. But, I will admit that they waited to blast out the message long enough that most of the brochures were probably delivered and trashed long before someone could go mailbox hunting.

Yeah, I had actually put mine to the side and forgotten about it completely. Went digging through a bunch of stuff and luckily found it. Time to go sign up for that credit protection.

Happy Friday everyone.

Hey ya'll. For those still looking at laptops, Best Buy just started up some pretty good student deals for both Macbook and PCs. Good until August 10. Link to article: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2422009,00.asp

Hey was wondering when do most incoming 1LS move in? I was planning on moving a week before orientation? Is this when most incoming students typically move in, or is it on the later side in terms of getting acquainted with uva and all that? Appreciate the help.

I think it really just varies. I know through Facebook and TLS that some people have been there for weeks, others are probably moving in now to give themselves a month, and I'm sure some people are only giving it a week because of work and other prior obligations.

As far as getting acquainted with Charlottesville, a week obviously isn't a lot of time, but if you can just figure out how to get to the nearest grocery store, bank, doctor, etc. you can cover the basics and just take it from there.

Anyone else having trouble with SIS? I can log in but can't actually navigate from there, just get the loading bar for minutes.

The aid will be pending until it disburses. The future due amount should only be your spring semester bill. As of now only fall aid is being shown as pending.

I'm getting a little nervous lol. Like moving away from a lot of the people I care a lot about. I guess it will just make seeing them on visits even better though.

Same. I've moved a lot, but this is the first time I'm actually pulling up some roots to do it. Sucks.

I'm getting nervous because I'm two weeks out from moving and I haven't heard from immigration yet about my new status. It would SUCK if I had to defer a year after I've already resigned and signed a lease. I'm slightly panicked but still hoping everything works out.

Glad that other people are in the same boat. I didn't even move very far, but other than my gf who moved with me, I don't know anyone around here.

Liberty University seems to be (desperately) calling a lot of people. They've been calling me every day for a week and I finally caught the call so I could tell them to stop calling. The guy tried to convince me Liberty would be a better fit than UVA. He failed of course =P

Oh I got one too. I almost wanted to see what their offer would be for me to leave UVA and go there.

Also same. Basically uprooting my entire life, which is a really crappy feeling. I'm hoping once I get settled in it will all feel worth it.

There's a meetup planned on the unofficial FB page for Aug 17th, 10ish pm at the biltmore. 80 or so people have rsvp'd yes so far.

If anyone wants to meetup before then, I get back to Charlottesville from Boston on the 10th.

Just turned in my security badge and left my job for the last time. If it wasn't real before, it is now. :|
