With all due respect, this is the exact pattern of events that occurred with the September free dining offer. That offer was first posted here by a poster from Argentina 5 days before Danny25 and Black brought the leak here. To say deals don't get leaked from within is naïve. It happens every single time a deal is coming. It has always been known beforehand. This deal is on several websites, not just this one. People also have been receiving emails from their TAs today with confirmation that it is coming out tomorrow. It is fine to be skeptical, and no one should ever fully trust the offer until it is officially released. However, I wouldn't go so far as to say it is not possible to be a leak when there is a proven track record that it happens every single time a deal is coming. We had the September offer on 4/19 and it didn't come out to the public until May 9. People simply can't ignore facts like that and there is no way to pass it off as coincidence. Especially since it was the first time in almost a decade that August dates were not included.

Well, I have inside knowledge too and my "sources" are showing free dining.

I have inside knowledge, and there is NOTHING OFFICIAL being 'shared' with pubic, including TA's. Yes, it's likely, and there is very good reason to be encouraged, but seriously, pour a drink and just wait for it, it will all be ok!

You would need to do a split stay. FD starts on the 12th so you are not eligable for it from the 7th through the 12, you need tickets to get FD and can only pick them up 3 days before your FD kicks in which will be the 9th.

I did the math with FD vs room discount., paying out of pocket. or upgrading the dining plan. it saved me 36.00 so i am looking for a room only.

we are going from the 8th thru 15th staying at pop.
