    Don't worry about it. You'll have plenty of time to bond with your classmates come July. :)

    The orientation is useful if you're looking for an apartment, but other than that, you're really not missing that much. Many of the accepted students (like you) can't attend, and quite a few who do attend the orientation end up going to different schools.

    Because I have nothing better to do with my life, I just looked at the picture they took at us at the orientation for 2004. Of the 48 people in the picture, about 36 are now my classmates. There are about 80 people (give or take a few) in my class now. Quite of few of them weren't even accepted at the time of the orientation. I don't think that anyone missed out on a life-changing experience by not attending, but you never know. :)

    I will be attending in July, but I can't this Friday because of work. I called the admissions office and they are sending me all of the info from the meeting through the mail. I think it may just be more housing info, which will be useful because I have no idea where I'm going to live. I can't wait to meet everyone this summer!

    I don't think that there are any other planned events, but the students attending the summer program will get to know each other then, and some people may meet up before orientation starts.

    Orientation is three days of getting-to-know-you type events, panel discussions, and informational sessions. (And free food- enjoy it while you can. Actually, enjoy it while you can still stand the sight of the pizza... we get _lots_ of pizza.) It'll all sort itself out by then... it always does.
