Everybody accepted, please post where you're from and a bit about yourself. Post anything you want, however much you want, BUT DON'T POST ANY STATS!!

I'll begin:

Hi everyone, I'm a Pakistani living in the United Arab Emirates. I have really big eyes and am currently learning how to play Go.

Ajworld, yep UAE is a lotta fun (although it's pretty much summer all year round).. but the city you want to visit is Dubai! Truly a melting-pot of cultures, I've lived here all my life.

Are you a Harvard student, btw?

Make sure you join the Yahoo! Group: HarvardCollege08. That is most likely the best place in which to get acquainted.

Canadian_Idol, I wanted to get a band going too! :) The one I'm in now has been really successful; we play rock but I'm a girl and the lead vocalist so it's not your typical all-guy band. And I had no idea you were Korean. :P

And yeah it's pretty amazing huh? alice, I have the same question. Where are you computer-savvy people when we need you? :)

Harvard's admit website isn't working for me; I got the email about the chat today and really want to participate, but I haven't been able to get on even the admissions website for the past few days. Is this just me guys?

By Elrohir (Elrohir) on Tuesday, April 06, 2004 - 01:39 pm: Edit

I can get in, although I can't see the "Online Open House" link anywhere.. I'm assuming it magically appears on Wednesday!

Call up the office and get them to sort out. I'm definitely looking forward to it... although I have to get up at 5am to participate.

Hi, my name is Peter and I am an african-american from chicago. I plan on going to law school so I guess I can major in anything. I will probably play tennis for Harvard. I'll be at Harvard for the prospective student visit (april 24-26), so if you see a black guy with curly hair, you'll know it's me.
