1. How important is it to be back for EIP Orientation on Friday, August 5th? Is it fine to come back the Saturday or Sunday before interviews start on the Monday?
2. Does the HLR competition have to be handed in physically, and does it go right until 23:59 on the Saturday? Does this mean you shouldn't plan to leave until Sunday the 22nd? (I don't want to write remotely)
1. Not at all. A lot of people miss it.
2. it can be mailed, but if you write it on site, you should hand it in physically, because it will take all your time until the deadline (which was in the late afternoon if I remember correctly — 5 pm, maybe?).

It's automatic. I knew people who said they were doing the write on, decided against it later, and just hung out in the dorms for the extra week because they felt like it.

That's less than I would expect, but it depends on your waitlists and what you were hoping for in terms of electives. You don't need that many multisections if you're planning to stock up on electives, and you don't need to get into many multisections if you're on waitlists that will move a lot (which most do) or high on waitlists that will move a little.
