Checking in! Psyched for ASW, probably going to shoot for the early March weekend.

ETA: Not early enough Teddy love in this thread. I mean, RBG is awesome, but very few people beat out Teddy Roosevelt!

Well, there's a link on the site for enrollment electronically which doesn't seem to work. I wasn't planning on enrolling yet (still waiting for half of my schools to come through) but I just wanted to see what the process was going to be like. The paper form (which they discouraged) worked, but not the link.

I got a big package from UVA today (was accepted back in December, it's a magazine of some kind) and was actually sad because I'm still waiting for Columbia to feel more real (though that is DEFINITELY my name on the PDF....)

Haven't gotten my package in the mail yet so I shouldn't be here yet...but that PDF almost does the trick for me. Almost. But not quite...peace out until the package comes.
