What time?

I have to fly to Nebraska for the weekend (grandparent memorial service) on Friday so I might not be able to make it, but otherwise I'd definitely stop by and say hi.


I'm "starting" it at six but should be down earlier to set up. You're probably leaving earlier than that though. :(

y'all are so sweet!


I will likely be quietly rocking back and forth in a straightjacket by that point due to 8 interviews in a row on Friday.

Don't assimilate. Keep your regional quirks. Unless you call everything 'coke' no matter what it is, because that's retarded. :P

My family is Russian, so I've dealt with continental quirks for most of my life :)

I'm from the midwest. I remember once when I was flying int'l on Lufthansa as a child, I told the German stewardess I'd like a pop. She looked at me funny. Scarred for life. :|

Does anyone know of a good men's hair salon near NU/Loop/LP that's not too expensive? All these places are like $50 and I'm looking more like $25--$30 and someone that actually uses scissors 8)

You probably need to get out of Streeterville/the Loop to find anywhere cheap.

Mr. Barber (silly name I know) is excellent. It runs about $40, but is worth it. Peter is a really nice guy who knows how to cut hair.

Thanks for recs. I'll check out Mr. Barber and also might make the trek a little more north. If you see someone at orientation with a mullet you'll know I made the wrong choice

Ahhh another Southerner. I'm safe. Can we complain together about how cold starting it is starting in mid-September?

Someone pointed it out on the facebook group. It's like 20 pages total, PDFs are on the orientation page. Definitely not a big deal.

PM me the info (deactivated my FB for OCI) and I might swing by. I have a mock-callback practice interview after CCBA is over so I don't know yet how long that will take. Also, I might be all socialized-out at that point. But I do love you n00bs and I'll do my best to swing by and say hi/possibly bring over some dessert (:

Hey all, I just signed up for internet with Comcast. Anyone know if I need an extra wifi router to get wifi in the house? Or does the modem come with a wireless function. Thanks!

Mine never did in Oregon, but Comcast uses lots of different hardware.
