Plans for local candidates?

Hi all... just received my invitation to CW1, but ran into a little predicament when trying to sort out travel plans....

I live an hour's drive from Olin (in Worcester, MA), so I am debating whether or not to come home Friday night, or stay the night at Babson to socialize. Will it be worth the experience, or should I save my $100?

    I live 30 minutes from Olin. I went home. :) I didn't feel like I missed anything, and it was nice to get a break from all the socializing. But if you are more extroverted than I am (that wouldn't be difficult) you might like it. Another issue is that the BECC is quickly filling up and it might be better to leave space for those who "need" it, but that probably isn't a huge issue.

    I live about 20 minutes from Olin, and I did stay at the BECC. I thought it was a great experience- I met a lot of people who ended up being my classmates at school. We still bring up the Twister games in the elevator. As long as people are hanging out, I think it can be a really good time. I'm glad I did it.
