OH MAN! I want that! We didn't get near that in Bmore, and the thing about snow days is that the more you get, the more you want.. and let's be serious, the kids have been out all week, no one is going to show up for a random Friday.


24 inches in 18 hours in minneapolis about 1.5 months ago. then we had two days of school cancelled the following monday and tuesday due to - wait for it - cold.

I had to drive around 5-6 buses stranded on a block between a decline and an incline. Apparently many people spent the night on many buses everywhere. It was pretty bad, most people with 2 wheel drive cars were going nowhere fast (and some nowhere at all). It was almost as bad this morning getting to work. Let's see how the drive home is going to be. But I think most people here made it to work. It's just slow for most. I can't imagine what if the south got 17 inches :lol:

Aahaha nice! How cold was it?

There's no heat in (half of) my school, so I plan to argue for this...

There is one of the biggest reasons why I am not going to write a LOCI for Chicago.

This describes last night in Baltimore. I'm pretty sure we didn't get more than 7 inches, but it's hard to tell in the city. Pathetic. I'm FROM the south and I still think it's pathetic.

Nothing happened... We had school today. There was never any talk about canceling it. Admissions was also here and fully functional.

just RSVPed for the March 18 open house! Getting in around noon on Thursday and plan to sit in on a class or two that afternoon (if they'll let me). And what an amazing travel stipend! I've never felt so guiltless after buying a $500 plane ticket.

The date just changed on my status checker. Does that have any significance?

There are few things we know in the world of TLS. 1 - you will hear from cornell sometime after you apply for 1L summer jobs. 2 - NU just held a whole bunch of people. 3 - Nope.

I sent in a LOCI on Tuesday morning and I still haven't heard anything from them, not even a reply that they've received it or a date update on the status checker. Is this odd?

Haven't been WLed or anything. Still UR 9/22

I got confirmation they received mine the next day. Maybe they are just super busy this week though
