    One of my friends got a visit from the UPS guy earlier today (she lives in California). She probably is still out of the country, so it'll be a nice welcome home surprise.
    Don't give up hope yet if you haven't gotten yours yet! =)

    Hooray for all the invites! I was actually in downtown Chicago waiting in the subway when my mom calls - UPS envelope!!! I couldn't believe it at first, but now I've seen it with my own eyes! (March 7-8)

    Got it in California :)
    Man, is anyone else from the West having trouble scheduling flights to Logan to arrive between 8:00AM - 2:00PM? It's so hard to coordinate!

    Can we have a CC meet-up at Olin somehow? :P
    Oh, Feb. 29-Mar. 2 here.

    Your best bet is to either take a red-eye which will usually get you in around 6-8AM or a morning flight which won't get you in until 4-6PM.

    Yesterday--around 4 in NJ, I heard a rumble and looked out the window to see the UPS truck going down the street. Ran down to the mailbox and--hooray--a lovely envelope addressed to DS! He was at a fire call (VFD) so I taped it to the door and waited for him to come back. He just had a huge grin on his face when he saw it--and hasn't stopped grinning. March 7-8--we'll be there. He goes off to his aforementioned competition feeling on top of the world. Those that haven't heard--don't give up hope--today may be the day--I'll cross my fingers for you.

    Woah 3 years?! Congrats!

    Did you get it today lima?
  • limabeanlimabean Registered User Posts: 7 New Member
    actually yesterday at 2:45pm. I went home so that my dad could drop me off at a physics lecture and the UPS truck arrived just as we were leaving.

    good luck kevin!

    Inconnu- I just wanted to follow up about booking flights in the 8-2 time frame. That's really more of a guideline, to make scheduling shuttles from Logan easier. If you need to arrive earlier or later, that's fine. Another option is arriving on Thursday and staying an additional night at the BECC. We can arrange a shuttle on Thursday if you're traveling alone. The only downside there is that we might not be able to match you up with a roommate, so you would be paying the full amount. Hope this helps!

    A nice answer
  • OlinAdmissionOlinAdmission College Rep Posts: 43 Junior Member
    Breaking news- update from previous post! We just found out that the BECC is all booked up on both Thursdays (the 28th and the 6th). Soooooo, if you are traveling alone, please arrive on Friday. It can be early in the morning, if you're taking a red-eye, or later in the afternoon/evening. Yes, you might miss a presentation or two, but the REALLY important part is being there for Saturday. Apologies for the inconvenience!

    Caitlin, thank you for your response! :) I just read the email you sent out, too. This makes booking a flight significantly easier.
