Wert - you got Three Cups of Tea and Stones of Hope?!?


Guys, Harvard did not send me a book written by a known fraud and tell me, "We think you'll be just like this." However, since multiple people have asked and didn't get it, I should feel dumb for a bad joke, not everyone else.

Lolwut? No fee, no deposit, utilities included.


My Manhattan is about $1700 with utilities. Just never imagined a place in the US would come close to being that much (well, maybe SF).

To be fair, that's 5 minutes walking distance to HLS. I'm sure a couple miles is manageable and cheaper.

I got In Brown's Wake, signed by the author with a note congratulating me on the inside. Swanky.


That IS swanky! I suppose they matched us up with different books from authors on campus based on our interests?

...I got Laws, Outlaws, and Terrorists. What are they trying to say?


Got the same book. Handwritten note from Gaby Blum. They've got my number ... quite certain I made the right attendance decision.

I'm a bit late to the book party, but I got The Persistence of the Color Line with a note from Randall Kennedy. Pretty neat.

Does anyone know if the deposit has to be received in the Admissions Office by May 1st or just postmarked?

Hi all.

Anyone here been slacking as much in the last semester as I have been? I know it's a bad idea for X Y Z reasons, but still... still.... senioritis. I feel like 'gosh darn it I earned this semester of complete slacking!' (along with sudden new commitments this semester outside of school) far outweighs any future worries of potential employers in 1L asking for my cGPA and wondering why it tanked so badly in the last semester.

I mean, no fails or anything... just B's across the board I'm predicting, whereas I had nothing below an A- in any of my first years.

Someone snap me out of my senioritis or tell me to chill the fack into it. Haha. Or sympathize (because that's one thing not many people have been willing to offer re: my whining about senioritis lately...)

Cheers

Has any one been able to complete the enrollment from online? I tried to just now and the message indicates its unavailable.

+1. I've been trying since Thursday, and keep getting error messages. I would prefer to pay the deposit online, but if it has to be done via snail mail I want to do it sooner rather than later.

Same, I'm scared the check won't get there in time. I suppose I could drop it off at ASW? :lol:

One of us could always call the office and ask...

Pretty sure - I got my book last week! "In Defense of Women: Memoirs of an Unrepentant Advocate" by Nancy Gertner.

Nice casual - most people I saw were doing the nice jeans (dark wash, no holes) with boots/flats and a nicer top thing.

I emailed the 1L.....address. At this point taking a check with me this weekend is probably the best bet.
