Checking In and Orientation

Checking In:
Do move-ins have to occur on the designated move-in day (August 26, this year) or can it happen anytime between then and the first day of fall semester or anytime after move-in day even?

Orientation:
How long does orientation last each day--the two-day one from August 27 to 28 if the specificity makes any difference? Supposing my parent decides to spend a few days with me following move-in day I'd like to make sure orientation isn't going to take up a huge chunk of my day.

Thanks, everyone.

From what I remember, orientation takes up practically all day. I recall it being nighttime, and still hanging out with my orientation leaders. You get a few breaks in between, but they are not so long.

I think that move-in day may be the best time to move in, that is when most of the staff is available to give you your keys and file your papers and whatnot. I'm not so sure if you have to move in on the designated day though.

Thanks, the information is helpful. I definitely plan on moving in on the designated day. As for orientation, I've yet to decide whether or not I'll shell out a few hundred bucks to attend the summer session, or if I'll just attend the session that begins the day after move-in day.

I called the College of Arts and Science admissions, and the person I spoke to said there are no disadvantages in attending the last session versus the June and July sessions. I hope he's right. I'm mainly concerned about getting to pick the classes I want and the times I want.

Thanks again.

Supposedly, and if my recollection serves me right, the way that registration for orientation works is that there are reserved spots at the beginning of each orientation; there is a limit on how many people can register for a class per orientation, but there will still be spots available for the next orientation. Even so, there must be some element of a disadvantage, somewhere... If NYU has taught me anything, it is that I should be very suspicious of their administrations... =)

I agree, universities, after all, are like big businesses in that they just tell their customers what they want to hear.

the way that registration for orientation works is that there are reserved spots at the beginning of each orientation; there is a limit on how many people can register for a class per orientation, but there will still be spots available for the next orientation.

This is what other LiveJournal users have told me, and the CAS guy told me this as well. I agree on this point as well, that there has to be some disadvantage. Hope I won't have to think too hard to figure out what it is (if indeed there is one).

Thanks.
