Judging by how busy I have been already and the fact my furniture isnt supposed to arrive until next friday (have to get that all unpacked and settled quickly before KWEST)...I dont think I will be able to make it. Just trying to get settled in and meeting classmates has been hectic.

OH COMMON!! You have two years to unpack!

Tell that to my wife...We have so much crap that we are worried about where it will all fit. I was out with some of the other gmatclub members and I think the consensus is we are already too occupied with things to even be able to schedule anything more than a day in advance. I am doubting the turnout of the Kellogg folks...seems everyone is wrapped up in life in Evanston already and will take a few months until people have settled into a routine.

Haha, maybe people would come if you offered up this one. Though I'd prefer trapeze artist myself.

I say if it takes you more than a half a day to unpack, then you didn't throw enough stuff away.

I'd offer to grace you guys with my presence , but I'm leaving for vacation in San Francisco on Sunday - yay!

back to life after teaching a new employee, moving to US and catching up with life (cell phone, bank account, accounting class) here Talked to Darden and ncprasad today. If ncprasad will decide to go, we'll be in three, if not, hope to convince Darden to accept the cost of going to Chicago in two Though, kk returns from the trip this weekend and it's highly possible that he will join us too. So, shall have info about most of the people taking part by the tomorrow afternoon and full info on the weekend.

Sorry it is going to be a no-go for me...I know a lot of the Kellogg folks wont be able to make it either but maybe a few will be able to make it and represent for us. Maybe in a few months when things settle down more of us will be able to get together.

Everything has been amazing here so far, having tons of fun and meeting lots of great folks including most of the gmatclub folks. I think my wife is actually enjoying it more than I have been so far, except for the job hunt part that is. Hope GSB and Ross is treating you guys just as well.

I'm busy too, but I'm going. Little things such as buying olives take time for me, everything is new, and I JUST CAN'T BELIEVE HOW MANY OPTIONS THERE ARE ON SUPERMARKETS. Now back on right mood. Furniture, hasn't come also, they will on Wednesday (Hopefully), we're still sleeping at an Air Bed (or whatever the name is), but I'll make it. I can't stand anymore, getting into the same store for the 5th time and still my wife doesn't know if the bloody thing is the right thing (please nobody tells anything about that on Sunday). Oh and to make things worse, try to buy a cel phone with no Credit Score...

Come on River just make it happen

Looks like I wont be able to make it on Sunday. Darden and RED should be there, so the Ross gang will at least be represented. Have fun everyone!

Oh, and can I just say that accounting is a piece of #@!^
