Well, date wise, I put down my parent's address for any mail after Aug 1. My lease ends Aug. 31, but I'll probably have moved by then to where ever I'm going to law school.
I figured that when I choose my school, I'll obviously let them know what my "local" address will be, and then if any other mail comes for some reason, instead of going through that forwarding process, it'll get sent to my parents' house and I'll know what it is sooner.
I didn't think they'd all be retards and assume that *everyone* is on winter break. But whatever. My daddy calls and tells me what I get from law schools.
And thanks for the BC condolances. I wasn't planning on going there, and applied on a whim, so no hard feelings.
