Without having my housing assingment yet, should I book tickets for August 27?

<p>Some halls open on 27th and some 28th. I do not know which one will be the case for me but I already have to book a ticket. If I book it on 27th but my assignment hall opens on 28th, will this be a problem? Or if I book for 28th and my hall opens on 27, would moving in lat ebe a problem? I'm really confused on this, what should I do?</p>

<p>You can get there earlier. There are events going on for transfers!</p>

<p>Transfers</a> | Georgetown University New Student Orientation 2010</p>

<p>^oh, thanks for posting the link. It reminded me of things I have to do before getting there. I completely forgot to register for orientation as well as the immunization forms (ugghh). How early can I get there?any ideas?</p>

<p>I haven't done the immunization stuff too yet. I think you can get there 22nd of August, since 23rd starts your preorientation.</p>

<p>^I'm not in any of the preorientation programs so I doubt I can arrive that early. 28 is probably my best bet.</p>

<p>Try calling the office and explain your situation. I bet they can still put you in the transfers pre-orientation stuff!</p>

<p>They won't let you in early, unless you're international or really convincing. There won't be any problem with arriving on the 28th either way (it's fine to be a day late). If you're a day late, that just means no crowds to deal with. There will be some other downsides - they space out the arrivals so that they can concentrate resources like people to help you, carts, etc. - but there will still be people at the RHO to give you your key and you won't have any trouble.</p>

<p>I told my parents to book it on the 27th and if the move-in date was 28th, I'd just stay in the hotel with them for a night.</p>

<p>And what do you mean by international? Do you mean an international student or from a different country? Because I'm an international student, but I live in California.</p>

<p>If you live in the US but are international (not a citizen) you can attend IPO. If you are an American living abroad you can attend IPO. If you are neither American, nor a resident, I think you are required to do IPO.</p>
