She has almost three hours to kill at ORD which is just fine by me and gives her time. I honestly couldn't recall whether or not at sometime in my past did I connect from Int'l to domestic there. She'll have luggage so I don't think she's going to be able to trek up to the sky train over to T3.

Recommendations?
At ORD after she's cleared customs, she'll drop her bag at the baggage recheck desk at T5, then she can take the train over to T3 and clear security there. Even if for some strange reason she couldn't drop her bags off at the bag recheck desk at T3, she can take the bags on the train over to T3.
