I'm going to the April ASW. It'll be my first time in Boston/Cambridge, so I'm open to bar suggestions.

I asked to stay with a student but I guess they might run out of space.

We were talking about a meet up a page or two back, but we never agreed on where. Is there anyone from the area who can suggest a place that would be fun, but calm enough that we could talk to each other?


Maybe Cambridge Common if you all want to sit down and have some pub food.

If I remember correctly you can reserve some space for a group at Cambridge Common (and also is a block from the law school)

Did you guys check out the "outside scholarships" yet? I looked and not a single one of them applied to me. Sucks.

I did. Never been happier to be from Maine.

Anyone find it odd that only sons of Cabot employees get money?

Only one applies to me but I'm pretty sure it applies to thousands of others, so I'm not too confident

"Admissions packet sent."

They must read TLS and know that we were making fun of them calling it a binder!!

At least you got a ticket, bro. I read through them like "OK, here we go... nope. Alright, this has potential... uh-uh. Race/ethnicity, yes! Nope. Graduated from a college/university in... no NY... nope... uh-uh... nope"

I felt like I got trolled pretty hard.

Haha as I went through it I had the feeling I'd get nothing for being a New Yorker. There was nothing for my race. My last name had nothing and I'm a descendent of no college educated people because I come from an immigrant family. The only one that fit was for my religion, and it's pretty rare to be the only one following a specific religion at a school like Harvard. I'm gonna try for it, but I've accepted the fact that I won't get it.

Also, I think this is the point in your life where you have to decide if a legal change of name or converting to another religion is worth over a hundred and fifty thousand dollars to you.

I'll be the big black guy. See you there.


Cool, I'll look for you. I'm the average-sized, white-ish guy, hopefully with a drink in my hand.

So has anyone looked at booking a hotel ahead of time for the March ASW?

Looks like the Sheraton Commander http://www.sheratoncommander.com/ is within walking distance and the cheapest that close to the Law School. And by cheapest I mean about $200 a night w/taxes. Any females looking to split the cost of a 2 double bed room? :D Otherwise I'm going to keep looking...

I used Hotwire and got a four-star hotel right by a T-stop for $91 a night.

I knew I had seen this page on the HLS website and I finally found it. It's a list of accommodations (some with a harvard discount). If you find someone to share with, some of these are not too bad

I requested to room on campus, but if that falls through I'll definitely split with you.

I was afraid they'd tell me the day prior that none of the students could take me and then I'd end up with an expensive hotel room...

Just looked at how they want travel subsidies requests- at least ten days prior, and you have to mail it in! All of us March people better get those in soon!

Mind sharing the name of the hotel? I don't know anything about Boston and it would take me a long time to figure out which cheap hotels are near good T-stops...

Yeah, I'm sticking mine in the mail today. I think I may fax/email it as well so I have proof it was received

When was this planned? Worm mentioned it yesterday but I didn't know anything of it before that. I just might come out there to meet y'all.
