HUH self-select only refreshes once a day right?

You rigged your apartment to respond to Minecraft commands? That is amazing.

Yup. Made a replica of the apartment in Minecraft, complete with lamps and switches for the lamps. The switches control both the Minecraft world lamps and the lamps in real life. It's like the ultimate in lazy light switching: too lazy to get up off the couch to turn of the light? Just have Steve do it.

I made a lot of redstone machines/calculators/etc., never thought of linking it to the real world. Your apartment is worth the cost.

1L classes aren't assigned, and even if they were you can't pick any.

Well, as of today's refresh there were 21 Terry Terrace 1BR and 5 studios available. Hopefully they'll stick around!

I read an incoming-students checklist this morning that said we're supposed to log into HELIOS to do something or other before we're fully cleared for registration, but now I can't find it. I'll take it to mean that it's not important at this point, meh.

Ah. Well here's the link! http://helios.law.harvard.edu/

im sure they'll email us if/when we need to do something, they seem to be good about that. this is probably for much later (i mean there hasnt been wl movement yet i think). are you talking about the checklist on the admitted students site?

Similarly, has anyone's college certification form been marked as complete in the Pre-Registration tracker? (https://www.law.harvard.edu/prospective ... check.html)

Mine has, but they had earlier sent me an email saying that wouldn't happen till later. From the email I received upon receipt of the certification: "Please note that we will not update your Application Status Checker before June, and then it will only be updated when all of your college certifications have been received. " Maybe someone at Admissions was bored, I dunno.

Haven't done any of that stuff. Not stressed about it. There is plenty of time to get all the pre-registration stuff done, methinks.

If you go into the HUH applicant page, the landing page after you login has a listing of all apartments available at the beginning of the day hyperlinked at the top under "Available Apartment Inventory"

I already did pretty much every form available... mostly because a lot of it's due June 15 and I'll be out of the country until well past then...

For the immunization stuff, as long as you did all the applicable vaccines when you were a kid, there's no need to start on it until a week or two before the deadline, when I'm sure they'll email to remind you anyway.

My cert status checker wasn't updated either.

Hmm I see that but those apartments aren't actually available for self select? I guess I have to wait for the daily update at 11 am for them to actually be released?

I was wondering if anyone from a middle/lower-middle class background would be willing to PM me about their grant award and general financial background, I'm a waitlisted student and am trying to get some idea how much aid I would receive since I would need to accept before getting the official offer. Many thanks!

Those are the apartments that are supposed to be available in the select window that day, although I'm not sure about how good the list is because there were far fewer Terry Terrace apartments in my select window than the list said.

Well, that is unfortunately correct. It said 26 yesterday, and there were 7. I ended up not going for Terry Terrace, got a place on Banks St. with a lot more square footage for less $, it's just a ~10 minute walk from the law school. We'll have to host a TLS 1L party once everyone gets to campus, it's got a great layout for entertaining.
