I totally didn't spend like 20 minutes with my undergrad health services trying to convince them to fax my current doctor my records this morning because of this. Nope.

I was bummed because all of the deadlines for vaccinations/physical/etc. are "in the last five years" and I got all mine for grad school about 5 years, 2 months ago so I had to get a bunch of stuff redone.

I was kinda blindsided because I'm currently traveling out of the country. I called HUHS and they said that the physical is actually optional (a vibe I didn't at all get from the form so feel free to call in yourself, but that's what I was told).

Anyone know what the deal is when the floor plan on room swap wizard shows a bathroom as a specific gender but the Gropius complex page (http://hls.harvard.edu/dept/dos/housing ... s-complex/) describes the bathroom as gender-neutral (see Story Hall Floor 4 if it's still available)?

Trust in the page since the floor plans are black and white so they're probably old or is that the worst reasoning you've ever heard?

The gender-neutral bathroom thing is new, so the bathroom assignments have changed this year. The floorplans are outdated, and the Gropius complex page has the correct information.

I don't remember where I read that, but it was somewhere legit.

Thanks

So, from what I can tell, the required sections are:

1.) Immunization form
2.) Tuberculosis questionnaire
3.) Meningococcal Vaccination Waiver (if you aren't getting it)

Does that seem right to the rest of y'all?

Can anyone, maybe a current student, tell me a bit about the Spring exams? I noticed on the academic calendar that April 27-May 6, 2016 is the "Upper-level and 1L Elective Spring Term Exam Period" but I haven't found much online about this 1L Elective.

How does that work? You take the gamut of required courses your 1L but then you also choose one Elective course? Or is that just for 1Ls who decide to take an Elective/Upper-level class? Orr is it mandatory?

Thanks :)

Ah I think I found my answer -- for anyone else who may be wondering, this link explains it.

The only HLS things I've done lately are get a TDAP shot in my shoulder and start the loan application process, both of which have proved to be painful but in different ways

We could make like the UChi thread and start talking about food. We can even make it relevant and talk about Cambridge food! I can't be the only one who's picked up a habit of yelping bars/restaurants/coffee shops within walking distance.

My advice: go to Burdick's. It is the best chocolate you'll ever find, their cocoa is divine, and it's just a five minute walk away.
