|By Dmar (Dmar) on Thursday, May 06, 2004 - 09:06 pm: Edit|
Wintermute, did the packet contain the information for getting our athena accounts? Something like 6 key words you need before you can register...?

when did you all send in your confirmations?
(is this a good time to call MIT and ask them if they've recieved mine yet?)
|By Irishgoldenbird (Irishgoldenbird) on Friday, May 07, 2004 - 08:46 pm: Edit|
West Coast and I got mine today - they couldn't fit it in the mailbox - they left it out on my doorstep with no one home! Our horrible neighbors might have stolen it! (they steal lots of our stuff!) So much stuff!!!!
|By Mitwannabe (Mitwannabe) on Friday, May 07, 2004 - 09:06 pm: Edit|
i sent mine off on may 1st registered mail, lol, i wanted to make sure it got there (i'm west coast, canada)
|By Vecter (Vecter) on Friday, May 07, 2004 - 09:49 pm: Edit|
Abyss, I called today just to make sure. It's probably a good idea
|By Abyss (Abyss) on Sunday, May 09, 2004 - 09:49 am: Edit|
Thanks Vecter. What did they tell you?
|By Mitwannabe (Mitwannabe) on Monday, May 10, 2004 - 11:08 pm: Edit|
yeah, i sent my yes reply thing from canada on the 1st of may, and i havent received anything yet. did u phone the admissions office?
|By Tylenol (Tylenol) on Monday, May 10, 2004 - 11:41 pm: Edit|
If you sent the reply from Vanoucver on May 1st, MIT should have received it on May 3rd. Hopefully we can get the package soon.
|By Mitwannabe (Mitwannabe) on Tuesday, May 11, 2004 - 12:44 am: Edit|
haha, i didnt send it THAT fast, lol, i just sent it registered to make sure it got there. so you decided on mit eh, good choice!
|By Vecter (Vecter) on Tuesday, May 11, 2004 - 02:23 pm: Edit|
they just said "yes, we received your decision to come", took one sec lol
|By Abyss (Abyss) on Wednesday, May 12, 2004 - 03:28 pm: Edit|
haha thanks. i got it finally ; )
|By Mitwannabe (Mitwannabe) on Friday, May 14, 2004 - 12:14 am: Edit|
still waiting *sigh* is there anything urgent that needs to be done?
|By 2bad4u (2bad4u) on Friday, May 14, 2004 - 12:44 am: Edit|
package doesnt have anthing time sensitive , math diagnostic isnt due till june and everthing else in it but it does have your kerebros info to get your @mit.edu e-mail
|By Mitwannabe (Mitwannabe) on Friday, May 14, 2004 - 05:09 am: Edit|
oh allright, that's not too bad, thanks 2bad4u
|By Abyss (Abyss) on Friday, May 14, 2004 - 06:25 am: Edit|
you need to send your photo for your id in by i think 'four days after you recieve the package,' but i think you can do that at web.mit.edu/orientation.
|By Mitwannabe (Mitwannabe) on Friday, May 14, 2004 - 02:00 pm: Edit|
haha, thanks a lot abyss, i do hope i get it soon. if there's nothing at my doorstep on monday morning, im gonna phone them. is the package a normal mail dropoff or is it something you gotta sign for? like is it rushed (for me it's obviouly not, lol) or just sent regular?
|By Myaplomb (Myaplomb) on Friday, May 14, 2004 - 08:21 pm: Edit|
It's regular mail.
|By Tylenol (Tylenol) on Saturday, May 15, 2004 - 01:19 pm: Edit|
I'm still waiting too. I wonder whether it's due to the Canadian postal code because my financial assistance information was sent to the wrong postal code (the digits after the space didn't show up). But then again, it doesn't matter if it's being couriered right?
|By Mitwannabe (Mitwannabe) on Monday, May 17, 2004 - 09:49 pm: Edit|
i still haven't received it. if i get nothing by tomorrow, im gonna phone them and see what's up. mail has been slow lately with mit. mit used to be the best and most reliable for getting stuff out, but lately the delivery process has been very slow.
|By Abyss (Abyss) on Tuesday, May 18, 2004 - 03:45 pm: Edit|
good luck mitwannabe
|By Mitwannabe (Mitwannabe) on Tuesday, May 18, 2004 - 08:10 pm: Edit|
finally, got it today via dhl, they rushed that thing pretty quickly probably after realizing they hadn't sent one to me yet. oh gosh all the forms, which dorm, this diagnostic, do i have tuberculosis? well, now i have some evening literature for the next few days. haha, thanks abyss
|By Abyss (Abyss) on Thursday, May 20, 2004 - 09:30 pm: Edit|
