Ugh, does anyone else have parents who absolutely refuse to do their taxes before the April deadline?

This. And I have to get info from both parents instead of the usual one parent--my parents are divorced.

As a caveat, it's a shared bath! I think it's split between 3 rooms.



Is the room still available? I would only need it for the first two nights.

As far as dress, I have been to a couple of these, and I can say that you will stick out like a sore thumb if you wear a suit! Maybe Harvard people will be more formal, but yeah I'm definitely going jeans and t-shirt.

For Finaid, or you received something in the mail? Or status checker update?

Edit: Yup, status checker update

Just did a PIN request now, seemed to go through. Although, the only delivery preference was to pick up a piece of paper in person - I'm hoping they really mean I will get an email. Did this happen to any(every)body else?


I have the same thing. Think that I remember reading we'd get it in an email somewhere


By the way... It is different from the SFS. I re-did the HUID pin and this time it gave me the option to email :)

Knowing Cambridge is a possible option next year makes checking the weather a whole new game. "Oh, Boston's getting a foot of snow today?" is now "OH MY GOD, could I deal with that?!"

What would it take to keep you from going to HLS?

Getting into Stanford, and comparing the weather in both places side-by-side.

If it was solely up to me my deposit would already be down and I'd be wearing an HLS shirt all day, everyday. But I'm making the choice with an SO in mind (one who can't work in Boston) and still waiting on one school that might provide a nice compromise if costs are comparable.

.... tl;dr - definitely not the weather.

Hope everyone's travels to ASW are safe. Anyone know where registration is? I didn't see a location on the schedule.

The "Admitted Students' Weekend Welcome" email I got a few days ago (to my hls address from 1L2B) says registration is in the South Lobby of Wasserstein Hall.

Kinda immature to think that of the seven billion people in the world, your current SO is definitely the person with whom you should spend the rest of your life, no? But mehhhh

The seven billion number is irrelevant, assuming one is not bisexual, wants to speak same language of spouse, doesn't plan to go looking for a spouse in Somalia, wants to marry someone +/- 10 years in age, desires specific qualities in a spouse that are rare, etc.

I actually found MOTM's comment kind of comforting considering I might have to end things with my SO to come to HLS... so thanks bro.
