Well, I sat through the 6 hours of pure disorganized CRAP they had, went to see about registering, went to Financial Aid to find out if my stuff would be done in time, then went back to register and get my ID.

The lady at financial aid pulled my paperwork out of the stack, verified it, then told me to go ahead and register. She said that if my funds aren't in by the fee deadline, they'd make sure I wasn't dropped from my classes. The one thing they're not going to help with is books. I have to check my other source of aid and see if they'll take care of it. If not, I have to find some other way to get my $450 worth of books.

I told soupy that I'd be moving in next week sometime. I discussed this with Mom and Dad over lunch, and neither really had any argument.

It's about stinking time. :P

Orientation sucks. It's hard to convey all the information new students need to know without giving them information overload.

It wasn't so much information overload as it was useless information. 90% of the people there were transfer students(I know because they had us do a show of hands), yet all the information was targeted at freshmen. They spent 2 hours talking about a program that was available, but only to freshmen. What good is that going to do for us who are transfering in as a sophomore or junior?
