Any chance that Harvard would match a merit-based scholarship from a T14 school, or is that limited to need-based?

Most highly unlikely.

No. You pay $$ for Harvard. (maybe $$$ or $$$$; those are your options)

Received my signed book in the mail today. Accepted a while ago (11/26), so there's still some coming for you early folks.

They do a pretty solid job of picking which books to send to people.

Anyone know where to get this form? I've googled it and checked my HLS email, but I can't find it.

You will have to email the admissions office and they send it to you. I don't think it is available online anywhere.

It's the form for the need-based application fee waiver, since you are technically applying for that. I don't know if that's online, but if it is it's the one you want.

Megabus. Just be sure to add about 30 min to your arrival time.

That is, unless you've got an extra $200 laying around. Trains are more comfortable and don't have to worry about traffic.

FWIW, Bolt Bus is a little nicer than Megabus IMO. More outlets, newer buses, etc. And if you make a Bolt account, they automatically put you in the "A" group that boards first. :)

If you can afford the train though, do it. So much more pleasant.

I've never tried Boltbus, mostly because they're a bit more expensive. I've been really happy with the Megabus buses, though their tendency to be late is really annoying.

I just assume that if you're asking about the bus, you probably can't afford the train. But for sure, trains are nicer.

Greyhound ftw. I've spent a TON of time on buses between boston/nyc/philly and greyhound is the only consistent one of the bunch. Plus the others make you wait along side the road. The extra $10 is well worth it imho

Happy March ASW Week everyone!

I can't believe that March is here already. This year is going by quickly.

This is a valid point. It's supposed to snow on Friday (dunno how much though). If that's the day you're going up, that has the potential to be an unpleasant wait. Then again, I got my RT Fri-Mon NYC-Bos ticket for $32 from Megabus. It's $64 from Greyhound. Tradeoffs.

Looking forward to meeting everyone at ASW this weekend! Not that this is a big deal, but I didn't receive a confirmation of any kind after I registered for ASW - is that normal?

Hmmm... I got one, I don't know if it's a big deal if you didn't though.
