    Admissions did not make that guarantee, so be careful saying that. I know of one person in my class whose letter was lost in the mail.


    Congrats to those accepted! If anyone wants to hear the perspective of an Olin Freshman, my AIM SN is SpaceTycoon1

    PS: Feel free to email me (jessi [at] students [dot] olin [dot] edu) or IM me (a2wheeldtricycle) if you ever want to talk about Olin, life, etc.

    Could you try to convince us not to come to Olin? I'd like you watch you utterly fail.... ;)

    My son just received his envelope today too and we're all thrilled! We're in the midst of mud season here in VT and UPS won't deliver, so it involved a phone message from a friend 6 miles away (who lives on a paved road) that he'd gotten a large envelope - no waiting for a truck for us. Congratulations to all the others accepted!

    If UPS screws up, it won't arrive on Friday. But it is scheduled to be delivered on Friday since it was UPS Next Day Air Saver shipment.

    Do I take it that those of you who have been accepted plan to attend?

    I suspect that is your intent, but I'm wondering. . . .

    I'm in, too!! Wahooooooooo!!!!!!

    Heeeeeey Olin class of 2011, I'm Katherine Elliott, a freshman here who's made a few posts on CC before. If you came to the variety show you saw me dance around with books on my head--I usually do that around the dorms with a laptop, but I didn't want to frighten the general public and give IT a heart attack.

    If you (or your parents or relatives) want to ask me any Olin questions, you can just shoot me an email at katherine {dot} elliott at students {dot} olin {dot} edu. You can ask me about student life, academics, bioengineering, oceanography, Photoshop, stage lighting, neo-Classicism or uh... just about anything, really! I also have the AIM screen name fofetothex.

    Hey Katherine! I remember you!!!!!!! I was that weird kid at CW1 with glasses. (Well, I guess we're all weird in some way....) Saturday night at the dorm open house thingy, I asked you how you did it (as you explained stuff about low center of gravity and rigidness and how you attempted to do it with Gatorade in the parking lot and got about 20 ft).

    I'm coming next year!!!
  • spiraloflifespiraloflife Registered User Posts: 110 Junior Member
    Oh yeah. For the record, you might've seen me at CW also. I was the girl with the rainbow hair- I did Design Build on the first floor.
  • mathwizmathwiz Registered User Posts: 2,355 Senior Member
    Sorry, I was Team O, second floor.

    Wait, are you saying you remember me?
  • spiraloflifespiraloflife Registered User Posts: 110 Junior Member
    That was a general "you." Sorry if that wasn't clear. Mostly I just wanted to put a person with the email address for anyone who decided to contact me.
  • mathwizmathwiz Registered User Posts: 2,355 Senior Member
    Sorry, I shouldn't post that late at night..... ;)
