I just got my Harvard waitlist and I'll be withdrawing. I am now 100% sure I'm going to Chicago in the fall!

Any girls looking for a roommate at Regents?  I'd like to get a 2 br to save money.  To be honest, I'm not the cleanest roomie, but my philosophy is to keep the common areas clean and I tend to be a piler in my bedroom (stacks of books, etc).  I love to cook and I make things for my roommates a lot (vegetarian though).  Not sure if I'm bringing my car or not.  I have some furniture- a really comfy L-shaped brown couch, some chairs, futon, coffee and end tables, etc. 

Anyway, pm me if interested!

99.9999% sure...although the book store was closed when I went to get a hoodie, so I'm not committed yet.

I'm just about as sure as bosco that I'll be at Chicago! And I'm really excited that bosco has adopted my hoodie-buying method as a sign of commitment, although I didn't end up buying one because I didn't feel like dropping another $50 on something I won't wear for a few months...

Is that tiny bit of uncertainty because you might eventually hear from Harvard, or are you also still considering another school?  Was it UVA you were still thinking about?

Nah, only a bit of uncertainty because I haven't officially committed yet.  I'm going to start withdrawing from other schools this week and I'll withdraw from Harvard if I don't hear by the end of the month.  I just want to get this decision over with!

I'm too lazy to type much up, but anyone who didn't get to go the ASW is welcome to ask me what I thought of it.  To sum it up- I loved University of Chicago and I'll see you all there in the fall!

Related note: has everyone here been in some form of contact with their student host? I emailed mine, but no reply yet. Not really a concern for me since I'm not staying overnight with them, but I'm still curious and stuff.

I got an e-mail from mine on Sunday then called her on Monday, but haven't heard back yet.  I just need to know whether to bring a sleeping bag or not, so I'll probably try calling her again today.

Is she really coming?  I wasn't going to go to the Thursday night events, but that may change my mind.

Berntie, how was the cruise?

Yup, I haven't talked to her since Duke's ASW, but I'm pretty sure she'll be at Chicago. Aside from all the joking, she is a nice girl, so I hope it's not awkard.

And... the cruise was wonderful! I put pics on facebook... but the tan is pretty much gone already!  :(

Haha, I was about to type "body shot," but I think that would be over the top even for me.   :D

Don't worry! Christin will be there!  ;)
