Very excited to be checking in with you guys as well, and thanks sneakyleo! I'm in the currently frigid New England and I cannot wait for the snuggie. Those are still coming out, yes?

I haven't gotten one yet (admitted 1/31) so maybe they'll send another batch of them soon!

Checking in.

I'm thinking about bringing a SO to the Monday Program. I want her to see the city and school, but don't think she'll care too much about, say, attending classes. Good or bad idea?

I'm bringing my SO to ASW. I'm gonna have to really sell him on Yale and he'll be fine exploring on his own if there's something he can't/doesn't want to attend.

I'm bringing my SO as well. Maybe they can all go out for drinks and commiserate on not seeing us much for three years. Kidding :) I'm sure there's plenty to see and do, and at the very least, they could hole up in a coffee shop with a book for a couple hours, right?

Mine will be there too! :mrgreen:

Maybe we should get them together to go out for some New Haven pizza, or something.

So many people with SO's ITT! Are all your SO's planning to move with you? Mine won't be but maybe s/he should come to ASW to test out how hard it is to get to New Haven by plane...

Mine won't either--at least not at first. Though perhaps all the Indian food referenced in the handbook will be persuasive...

Not sure if NYC is the closest feasible airport, but if s/he flies in there, the train from Grand Central seems fairly painless!

Moving with me is sort of a hard requirement. I'm sticking around for him to finish his master's so he's gotta follow me to law school (this was an agreement we made together). I just don't think I could handle a LDR for 9 months of the year for 3 years (not a knock on anyone who's planning to do it, it's just not for me).

It's one of the reasons that right now I'm leaning S over Y.

Checking in...don't mind my lack of manners and proper etiquette...never planned in a million years on being here!

And, I already have a challenge...I got the Facebook invite, but when I clicked on join, the link just led to a blank Facebook page...anyone else have this happen before actually being able to see it?

Yeah, Facebook groups can be finicky...are you sure you're not in the group now? If not, can you search for the group and try joining again? Or click the link from the invite again?

ETA: Also, congrats!!! :D
