SU -- so good to hear that.  I HATE those wind tunnels.  If I can survive those, I guess I can deal with Cambridge.  I grew up in Texas - so it took me forever to get used to anything less than 50 degrees...

I honestly think that that was a part of my decision against NYU.  I visited in March and it was so cold I wanted to cry.  I've never been that uncomfortable in the Boston area.

Glad to be able to post on this thread :)

For those of you living in the dorms, is anyone bringing a car?  Is there available street parking by the school, or are there lots, or maybe reasonably priced private garages?

Hey steve. Just wanted to extend my belated congrats.

Regarding parking, cambridge is not a very parking friendly place. However, as a cambridge resident, you can get a cambridge parking sticker and take advantage of the on-street resident parking spots. That said, I don't know how convenient or feasible this will be. Perhaps some current students or others who have investigated this option in more depth can chime in.

I will likely be living off campus and will try to find a place with parking.

Anybody really big on a particular professor or two at HLS?  I've been reading up on a bunch and looking at some of the bios and there are a couple of professors I really want to get a class with:

Goldsmith
Manning
Glendon
Levinson (Darryl)

Anyone other big on any of the non-Tribe/Fried types?

Getting a Cambridge street permit requires having a Massachusetts drivers license with Cambridge address, having your car registered in Mass, and of course paying for Massachusetts insurance rates. There is probably some backhanded way of getting around this (finding some Cambridge resident to buy you a permit, probably) but you'd have to check that out, Steve.jd.

If you live in North Hall, there is on site parking, not sure how hard it is to get. Some of the affiliated complexes also have on site parking (29 Garden, One Western Ave, those 2 I know, I'm sure there are others). The general idea I got was that having a car is a huge pain, so I'm gonna take a deep breath and try leaving mine at home for at least the first semester.

I think I've figured out that if you're in a dorm other than North, your Harvard parking options consist solely of a rather expensive garage across the river.  I may have missed some loophole, but it doesn't look good.
