Agree that in retrospect the binder was pretty cool. But not gonna lie I was opening that package fully expecting to find the snuggie in there too, so my immediate reaction was jaded disappointment haha.

Lol same. I got the package on a particularly frigid day, so I was ready to be all up in that. There's still a chance it'll come later, right?

For my class, snuggies sometimes came substantially later. I wouldn't worry.

I think your definition of "super great insight" needs to be adjusted...

Yeah, my snuggie came in like mid-April, though I got my acceptance packet late Januaryish. I wouldn't worry at all.

Hi all! I am looking forward to meeting you guys at the ASP in April. I got my PhD from Yale last year, so I lived in New Haven for 5 years. I am sure you will get a lot of your NH questions answered at ASP, but feel free to PM with any questions that you may have in the meantime. I know New Haven doesn't have the best reputation, but I really enjoyed living there and am happy to give tips on where to live, things to do, etc. One thing to keep in mind is that New Haven has a pretty big shortage of good housing, meaning that unlike many markets, you have to look pretty far in advance to find an apartment (so for example, if you wanted a place starting August 1, you should start looking around May or June).

Hey all! Does anyone know what the rules are for filling out financial aid forms if I'm planning on requesting a deferral? I imagine I will have to fill them out again next year if they grant my request, is there any need/benefit to also filling them out now?

Also, if I request to defer too soon is it possible I won't get a snuggie??
