I'm an idiot
ok so it turns out I'm just stupid. I posted earlier about seeing the oresteia on the thursday before visiting days, but it turns out my friend who told me about it (he just said he had a show going up on thursday) was talking about the freshman musical (Shady Business), not the oresteia (which goes up on friday). That's at 7:30 in the Agassiz Theatre in Radcliffe Yard. So, whoever said they wanted to come to the oresteia, how about a musical instead? haha, my bad.

just wondering who all is planning on going to the visiting days (april 29 - may 1), we should arrange some type of meeting. I'm flying in thursday morning, then probably hanging out and going to see 'the oresteia' which a friend of mine helped tech direct. After that I have no clue.

Current Mood: calm

First Substantial Post
Greetings, friends! My name is Charlie, I play violin and do math, and I live in New Haven, CT (enemy territory, as I've come to call it over the past few months). Seriously, though, my dad is a professor at Yale, my violin teacher is on the faculty there, and I've even taken a handful of math courses at Big Blue. So I'm all Yaled out!

I really love playing the violin. I used to adore all the romantic concerti, but then their sparkle started to fade on me a tad. Now my preference has turned to earlier music. Well, by "earlier music," I mean Bach. Just Bach. Sometimes I just sit back and listen to it for hours (although such extended periods of listening to music usually happen only when I'm bed-ridden). I've concluded that all other music pales in comparison.

I'm also into math. I like to spend a lot of time - weeks, occasionally months - working on a problem. However, I am never working on one problem exclusively; rather, I frequently tackle new problems before I have solved the old ones. As a result, there are all these unsolved problems lying in the back of my head, waiting to be worked on. This arsenal of unsolved problems comes in rather handy, however, when I am in a situation where I am compelled to sit in a boring place for an extended period of time (which seems to happen all too often).

I am very excited about Harvard (did I say excited? WOOOOOOO!!!). I'm not yet sure what my major, um , concentration will be, but I'm leaning towards math and considering physics and economics. I'm also interested in the humanities, but I really am quite ignorant when it comes to the humanities. To remedy this situation, I plan to "branch out" at Harvard and take a lot of humanities courses, particularly in literature, history, and philosophy.

I look forward to meeting all of you, either at the visiting weekend or in the fall!

Name: Elaine Chen
Location: Queens, NY
Birthdate: April 30th, 1987
High School: The Brearley School
Hair Color: Black, red highlights
Eye Color: Black
Height: 5'3" (too short...)
AIM: Dotdotdot87
Favorite School Subject: It changes every year, but this year it's been history. I also love language classes.
Least Favorite School Subject: Calculus. For me, taking this class is like slogging through mud... =)
Possible Major: Really quite undecided...I could go the route of the sciences, some journalism-related, or economics...no idea.
Color: Sea green
Television Shows: Gilmore Girls (a very guilty pleasure)
Movies: The Princess Bride, Valmont, Sense and Sensibility, Mulan, Beauty and the Beast, The Incredibles
Sports: I used to run track, but that was stopped early on by knee injuries. I wasn't that good anyway...just did it for fun, but nowadays, I wonder, how could I ever have thought that running was fun? I also like badminton and volleyball.
Band/Music Artist: The Postal Service, Enya, Queen. I tend to like individual songs more than artists, so very little is coming to mind...
Board Game: Taboo. It's the only one I've ever played...
Food: Mmm. Pork buns.
Books: Almost anything Jane Austen, Corelli's Mandolin, Jane Eyre, Memoirs of a Geisha, and I really could go on for a long time...
Anything Else: I love to write. I also play the violin - albeit rather badly for how long I've been doing it - and am teacher myself the piano. I wish I could sing. I'm also a huge slacker at heart, and probably one of the worst procrastinators on this side of the Rockies...how did I get into college? :D

I never really expected to get in, but now I'm almost definite that I'll be going next year. (Plus, I'm Asian, so it's a parent's dream come true...hahaha...) Financial aid-wise, Columbia actually gave me a lot more. In fact even NYU gave me more, as I qualified for one of their school scholarship things. So there will be much calling to be done.

Anyway, I'm so excited about next year, and I hope to meet some of you over visiting weekend! Feel free to IM me, too!

Name: Nick C.
Location: San Francisco, CA
Birthdate: January 15, 1987
High School: Lowell High School
Hair Color: Brown
Eye Color: Blue
Height: 6' 4"
AIM: wizrdofoz27
Favorite School Subject: Math (in Calculus right now)
Least Favorite School Subject: Physics (because of the teacher, not the material)
Possible Major: Mathematics, but nothing's set in stone.
Color: Sky Blue
Television Shows: Alias, The Amazing Race, Monk, Jeopardy
Movies: The Sixth Sense, The Wizard of Oz, The Goonies
Sports: Swimming, not too competitively though
Band/Music Artist: They Might Be Giants, although I'm more of a soundtrack person. Broadway especially.
Board Game: Monopoly or Cranium. Cranium is more fun, but I've run out of cards and have yet to buy an extension deck, so Monopoly it is for the time being.
Food: Spaghetti
Season: Fall, when San Francisco sees the sun
Books: To The Lighthouse, Bleak House, GREAT EXPECTATIONS, The Phantom Tollbooth, David Copperfield, Ward 6 (if that counts as a book, my English teacher calls it a short story.)
Anything Else: No words can describe how happy I was three days ago. My body probably used up its full supply of endorphins, if that's possible. If I could go anywhere (with enough money,) I'd choose Harvard in a heartbeat. Of course, the money situation is a big "if," so I'm still not sure about where I'll be next year. My tax returns took a while to get to the Financial Aid office, so I haven't received my offer yet. *crosses fingers*

Out of all the activities there were brochures for, Dorm Crew piqued my interest the most. Who knew menial labor could be so enticing.

*waits for 1 AM to roll around so he can tape PBS broadcast of Stephen Sondheim's "Passion" in concert*

straw for the camel's back
Name: Isaac Meister
Location: South Boston, Massachusetts. (Which is actually west-northwest Boston, for anyone who's ever been there.)
Birthdate: July 18, 1987
High School: Boston Latin School
Hair Color: Brown
Eye Color: Brown
Height: 5'10" (ish, taller without backpack)
AIM: alliensis
Favorite School Subject: Latin, History of all sorts, Chemistry
Least Favorite School Subject: Calculus. Elegant, but about as appetizing as a plate of slugs.
Possible Major: Classics, and maybe something more useful.
Color: Maroon-ish (convenient); periwinkle.
Television Shows: News (The Daily Show), mindless crap (The Simpsons, Futurama, Family Guy, South Park), cartoons from long ago (too many to list), Monty Python on BBC America.
Movies: The Hours, the Matrix trilogy, the Lord of the Rings trilogy (sucker for anything epic), I, Claudius (actually a miniseries, but still v. cool), Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Mean Girls, Saved!, Hotel Rwanda, Kinsey.
Sports: Is walking a sport? I love badminton (but don't know the rules) and ice skating, but I'm not very good at either of them. I used to swim a long time ago.
Band/Music Artist: The Dresden Dolls, Jack off Jill, Franz Ferdinand, Garbage, Don Davis, Howard Shore, Enya, Vivaldi, Placebo, Rasputina, Björk, and Shostakovich, according to iTunes recently played.
Board Game: Monopoly, I guess.
Food: Anything with fish that is reasonably light; will eat anything except beef cartilage, undercooked basmati rice, and kielbasa.
Season: Late summer/early autumn (late July-late October)
Books: Brave New World; I, Claudius; The Silmarillion; Dune (except those lousy Brian Herbert ones); House of the Spirits; The Great Gatsby; King Lear; Invisible Man; His Dark Materials.
Anything Else: I think y'all should check this out if you haven't:

Yes, I know it's Yale, but it did a better job than the Crimson did on the story, sad to say. The gist? It's close to 5.5 percent acceptance rate for Harvard regular decision this year. We're a lucky bunch. Anyone else an early defer/regular admit? So excited to be allowed to go.

Also, I was wondering how people and their families are feeling about financial aid. I haven't received my package yet, but other schools have been very stingy and I was wondering if people have found Harvard more or less generous than, say, Columbia or Brown. It's funny that Harvard has earmarked 84.6 million dollars for financial aid this year for undergraduates, which would average out about $40,800 for every admitted student, yet college packages in general can be so small.

Anyone considering Dorm Crew?

Current Mood: contemplative

1:41 pm
Name: Melissa
Location: Ardsley, Westchester County (a suburb close enough to NYC that I can be ridiculously happy about once a month, but far enough for my friends and I to spend most of our weekends driving around aimlessly, searching for something open past 11. It gets better in spring/summer, because parks have no closing times.)
Birthdate: February 22, 1987
High School: Ardsley High School
Hair Color: Brown
Eye Color: Green
Height: 5'9"
AIM: music22287
Favorite School Subject: English, Politics, History
Least Favorite School Subject: Physics (would be calculus, but I dropped math!!!!)
Possible Major: English or Political Science
Color: Olive green

Movies: American Beauty, Adaptation, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Garden State, Donnie Darko (director’s cut), Maria Full of Grace, Requiem For A Dream, I Heart Huckabees, Waking Life.
Sports: Very much not my thing, though I’ve always wished I’d learned frisbee or hacky-sack. I recently discovered that exercise helps increase life-span, and as I’d prefer to die after 30, I’ve actually been running during phys ed, instead of my activities pre-revelation: read my New Yorker and listen my ipod while walking on the treadmill at 2.0.
Band/Music Artist: Belle & Sebastian, Elliott Smith, Death Cab For Cutie, Rilo Kiley, Tilly and the Wall, The Decemberists, The Magnetic Fields, Wilco, Jonatha Brooke, James Taylor, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell
Board Game: I just learned Risk; it’s a wild game. Also, card game: spit (no slaps, though; it ruins the game!)
Food: vegetarian, interesting
Season: summer (but really, anything not winter)
Books: Everything is Illuminated, The Great Gatsby, The Grapes of Wrath, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, America the book, Mrs. Dalloway, Hamlet, Pride and Prejudice, E.E. Cummings poetry, Mary Oliver poetry
Anything Else: I play cello, piano and sing. I love to read. I love concerts, and wish they didn’t make my wallet empty. I love to be around people, but am a hopeless elitist. I love to be alone, sometimes. I wish I’d done more community service in high school, and plan to do a lot more in college. I am quasi-politically active; e.g. I sign petitions and will never stop discussing/arguing, but have never been to a protest.

And: I was so, so, so surprised to get in to Harvard. I applied on a whim, because my mom figured that if this whole process is such a crapshoot then I might as well; I’ve never visited. When I found out I got in, I couldn’t stop laughing the whole night. But you all seem really interesting, and are making me really happy, even before I’ve met you. I hope we can talk. My email is music22287@optonline.net, and my AIM is music22287 (but my computer can’t handle AIM for the moment, so I may not be on for a while).

Possible Major: lots of them! Umm... something to do with math, science, economics, politics, or music. Yeah, I picked undecided.

Movies: The Big Lebowski, Office Space, The Usual Suspects... I could go on

Board Game: Pictionary, taboo if that counts. I really love board games.
Food: Pizza (I am going to BALLOON in college)
Season: Spring (this weather is perfect...)
Books: I remember when I used to have time to read for pleasure... maybe I shouldn't waste so much online... nah. In terms of non-school, I really liked ender's game (nerdy yes, but I tore through that thing) and the various sequels. Al Franken's books are hilarious.
Anything Else: Over the last couple days I've become incredibly excited for next year. I'm also feeling very overwhelmed right now, but in a good way.
