First time? Get there by 6:30am. Save yourself the stress and anxiety of feeling like you're running late. Give yourself time to figure out your airport routine. Next time you'll probably only need to show up 20 mins before boarding (not takeoff) starts if you have pre-check.

like

700A (40 to cover security take the train to C and to your gate - worst case, A,D should be quicker; they’ll start boarding around 745A - so 5 min to find your line and stake your place in it (assuming no status so you’ll board much much later); once you’re in line tell the person behind you you’ll be back (time to hydrate/caffeinate/eliminate w/o losing your place). BUT if you’re the anxious type get to Dulles by 630A!!! Good luck

Update everyone! I made it! Happy fly day!

Boarding time is probably 7:35? Precheck show up at 7, if not 6:30.

If you have pre and don’t need to check bag, 45 min is ok but recommend 1 hour. If you don’t have Pre and also no need to checkin bag I will recommend 1 hour. Otherwise 1.5 hours

2 hrs

Depends on your stress level but even an hour before you should be fine

Dulles shuttles you to half the terminals after security and it’s a pain in the ass. Agree with 6:30 if you don’t have precheck!

7:30 is fine if you have pre. I’ve never waited in line at Dulles except when there are old ppl in front of me

Do you have pre check and CLEAR?

Plus the SD Zoo uses ZIMS to track all their animals, including all attributes (ages, sex etc) which the fs says is not possible. WTF

I don’t know who to ask for references. Since law school I worked at a non profit for 2 years. Then clerked. Was at a firm two months before it closed and now at my current firm.

We didn’t have a good relationship. Is it okay to ask someone else from the nonprofit or maybe my co-clerk? It’ll be six years but someone from internship?
