    Hi Kylie002,

    I commuted from Vermont for several years with my job before moving to the valley so I understand about keeping "home base" running while you're in school/working out of town. I just tried adding you as a friend to see if I could email you directly, but let me know if you're still looking for a room to rent.

    Lisa, I accepted you as friend on this site, but I don't know if I can get or send messages on this site yet. I'm still thinking about finding a room, but it would have to be fairly cheap as it would only be 2-3 nights per week and maybe some times not even....but, still interested. Will you be at orientation???

    Thanks for making the group, rach0019!

    Does anyone know anything more about the orientation aside from the date/time? I'm wondering if we'll need to bring anything specific. Also, I haven't gotten anything in the mail aside from the official acceptance letter and some financial aid info...I'm hoping there aren't important forms that I didn't receive...

    Hi Rach0019: I can't find that group on FB - typed in exactly as you have it ("Second Bachelor's..etc) and no results. Likely an operator error - but wanted to check to see if anyone else having trouble accessing. Thanks.

    Hi everyone! I just got accepted to Amherst today and am so excited! Except I am waiting to hear back from one more school to make my final decision. I was wondering what you guys like about it and prices of everything from housing to tuition. Just overall how you like the program? It would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
