Should I fly into Midway or O'Hare for ASW? Southwest is having a sale from my city to Chicago and it would be super cheap to fly into Midway. Can I just take the El to HP since it will be daytime even though people say that part of the El is scary?
Midway is fine, and you can get a taxi for pretty cheap to Hyde Park (~$25 if you go straight east rather than north to the highway and back south).
Thanks, I just booked it. What will we do with our luggage when we arrive on Friday? I assume we won't meet up with the person we're going to spend Friday night with until later in the day?
So you're coming in Friday rather than Thursday? That's fine, just want to make sure I'm answering the right question. If so:
The admissions office always has a room for people to stash their luggage. The first time you will meet your student hosts on Friday is for lunch at 12:15. You'll get contact information for your host a week or two before ASW, so you can figure out then the best way to get the luggage from school back to their apartment.
Yes, I've got to work Thursday and can't get out of it so I'm flying into Midway at 730ish am Friday morning and leaving around 5pm Saturday. I'll coordinate w/ my student host then about the particulars - it sounds like I might even have time to get it over to his apartment before it all gets going on Friday morning assuming he'll be up/around, etc. Thanks.
