Lavitz,

Thank you for the parking information earlier. Sorry I still do not understand the formatting/quoting.

Anyhow, $750 a year to just park my car...seems rather expensive. Are there parking lots far away that could be had for cheaper?

Also, historically, has Cornell's 1L class always been somewhere around 200 people? Does this ever change drastically. A bit curious about this.

Settlers is great stuff! It's 100% the gateway drug of board games.

Settlers can ruin friendships and split families apart

Wegmans!

Excellent -- Catan will happen.

@hodzdoh: I just acquired a pretty killer MGS version of risk which will be coming with me to Ithaca. Just saying.

So I didn't get a meal plan. I told myself I would cook at home, but that failed miserably considering my bad time management/impatience with cooking, and in retrospect I wish I had gotten at least a small one. So that being said, I would definitely consider the meal plan if you are like me and don't like cooking or if you aren't one who wants to spend a ton of time cooking. It's still a bit expensive, but if you find yourself eating at one of the CTown establishments everyday....i mean it's probably the same.

Question for those that plan to live in Hughes and cook at least a meal a day, where do people keep their food? In the general fridge? And does it ever get busy around lunch or dinner to the degree where youre waiting a long time to cook? Never shared a kitchen With this many peopleee.

I had a mini-fridge in my room. They offer to let you rent one from some company, but I brought my own. The general fridge can get crowded / I don't trust people.

I never had to wait.

Not that I know of. Maybe in the commons, but if you're parking that far away, you must be living pretty far.

I submitted my first deposit about 2 weeks ago and I haven't gotten any information regarding a NetID or housing from Cornell. Is there something I'm missing here? And is it too late to get into Hughes Hall? I'm planning on calling them on Monday.

No one has a NetId yet so no worries. Have you applied for on campus housing? Go to the first page of this thread for info/application link

When I go to the housing portal it asks me to log in with either my Cornell NetID or my Cornell Application ID. I don't remember ever getting a Cornell Application ID. I'm sorry if this is obvious.

That's because you get your Cornell Application ID once you start filling out your app.

+1. Ever try 2-minute blitz games? That shit really tests your end-game abilities haha


Side note: anyone looking forward to checking out some of the state parks / hiking trails in the area? A couple 2L's at ASD mentioned its nice to be able to get awa y from the law school every once and a while

CFC, definitely. I'm actually really excited about getting to live in that part of the state for 3 years; one of the things I was really dreading about law school in NYC or Chicago was having to give up the outdoors so soon.

I'll be in Ithaca early (mid-July for work) and I'm excited to get to have a good chunk of summer to explore/hike/climb/etc.

Same here. Never been much of a hiker, but I'd like to try while I still can.

Me tooo! I like climbing stuff, it's going downhill that I don't like so much. Unfortunately, I won't be in Ithaca too early - maybe like mid August assuming I'm invited to the AOP. Still, I'd love to explore a little before the semester/on weekends via day hikes!

So re AOP, when does it start? Is there housing available for it, if our leases dont start till later on
