i've been invited!

Who would've thought, that after managing a flight from Toulouse to Paris to home by myself, that I'd be slightly terrified to fly to Philadelphia for the chem department's open house?

Or, that I'd be terrified to put down almost $600 on a flight ticket because I can't decide if I count as flying from the west coast or the central US (we get $500 reimbursement for flying from the west coast, but only $400 if flying from central/south). Or! How about the fact that Aaron doesn't find out if he gets into Penn until three days before the open house? So if we get bad news that day, it'll be like, "what the heck am I going to Philadelphia for?"

Anyway. These are the things that keep me awake at night. Navigating airports, coordinating mine and Aaron's life, and what to do with a 4 hour layover in Cincinnati?!

The Cincinnati airport is huge and has lots of restaurants -- you'll be fine. :)

I have those same comparisons. I spent 6 days in Europe with just one other girl and I am afraid to fly to California by myself. Its just funny.

That is exciting! And I would say definitely west coast!

well, if you get reimbursed, enjoy a quick trip to philli? haha! good luck!

Speaking from experience, you should definitely go if possible! You don't want to find out too late that the program isn't right for you. And just say west coast; these schools have gobs of money and no one will really care :)
