can't wait until we receive our packets!!

<p>okay, so I don't know of their official names, but they're the ones MIT sends out early May. actually, I don't even know what comes in them... but anything from MIT = KICK ASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!</p>

<p>so yeah...</p>

<p>a second tube would be nice</p>

<p>A couple of things that I am pretty sure are in there:
1. The CD with all of the i3 videos, and a book with a written description of each dorm
2. A coupon with a code that you can use to create your MIT username/email address
3. Lots of information about orientation, and maybe some info on pre-orientation programs
4. Probably some information on the Freshman Essay Evaluation</p>

<p>ok, what do people mean when they talk about tubes? all i got was an acceptance packet.. it came in a large white envelope..</p>

<p>uh, yeah, same here.</p>

<p>but i'm quite excited to recieve info no matter what the geometry of the container is. i just can't wait for next year to begin :p</p>

<p>JD22 and iostream -</p>

<p>People who are accepted EA get their decision in the form of a tube.</p>

<p>[URL="<a href=""&gt;"]This[/URL&lt;/a&gt;] blog post has a picture of Keri with her acceptance tube.</p>

<p>at least the confetti haha, that was good stuff. but yeah, i never even got one of those yellow cards saying they got my stuff, but i called and they said they did, so i guess theyre just waiting to send us out the new stuff? and anyone thinking about FPOP?</p>

<p>When I was your age... we didn't have "tubes"</p>

<p>haha, tis true ;) :( :)</p>

<p>I want my e-mail address!</p>

<p>I want my MIT Facebook network number to go up to 50! :D</p>

<p>^50??? jeez!</p>

<p>But anyways, I totally got my packet already!! The Residential Info packet is really nice-looking...all the dates they throw at you are kind of confusing, though.</p>

<p>50 networks? l0l... talk about putting yourself out there.</p>

<p>I just recently left my old job's network, so I'm back down to 1 (MIT ;))</p>

<p>oh man, i totally got my packet yesterday, theres so much stuff. and theres a sticker. :D
im excited for my username. im thinkin on pyrocide or drizzle i know alot of ppl use their regular name for it, but audrey totally sounds boring.</p>

<p>Just make sure it is something you won't be embarrassed having future professors and employers seeing!</p>

<p>Matt offers lots of good advice from himself and others on choosing your email wisely, in his</a> latest blog entry.</p>

<p>yeah, mine is about as bland as it can get, but i'd rather have that then a "clever" name that backfires.</p>

<p>Hehe, I meant I want the number of friends in my MIT Facebook network to go up to 50 (in that all the soon-to-be-MIT-2011 people I know get their e-mails, too)!</p>

<p>The funny thing is.. now that I finally have the Kerberos information, I cannot for the life of me decide an appropriate yet tastefully clever account name. "kryptonsa36" amazingly just doesn't seem suitable this time around as a log-in, despite me having used it for absolutely everything else. :D</p>

<p>i went with the classic first letter of first name + last name</p>

<p>I went with first name plus last name -- exactly eight letters. Not very creative, but at least I won't outgrow it within four years.</p>

<p>Exactly what I did iostream.</p>

<p>I had that assigned as my high-school login, so it wasn't a big leap for me to do it here :)</p>


<p>Same here. I've used Fermion for the longest time, but I don't want to use it for my MIT ID. For one, I'm interested in both computers and physics, and Fermion would immediately give the wrong impression. My last name is 9 letters long, so no help there..</p>

<p>I'm probably going to try to come up with something clever that doesn't contain my name and isn't biased towards a particular major.</p>
