We're up to five esteemed TLSers......don't get left out of the workout group! Post it up!

Just remember - if this group gets any bigger, our hard bodies are going to be taking every dating prospect you have. And if you can't beat 'em, join 'em!

Wow, the workout group idea has really taken off.
I had been planning on a workout routine that included (hopefully) my participating roommate and a couple friends that are still in UG...but this sounds so much better!

I'm down for working out - will we have free access to the gym & track?

I'm training for this run, which is the first Sunday after classes start in case anyone is interested. I figure we probably won't have large amounts of training time after school starts...--LinkRemoved-- here are course photos: --LinkRemoved-- It looks gnarly but fun!

Also, can anyone tell me if they are going with ALL Student Loans for the Stafford Loans? Are most of you choosing the Grad Plus loan or private loans with floating rates? I'm having a really hard time deciding!!

Alright, we're up to seven! Here's the complete list so far:

ari20dal7
hope
BruinBoy86
LeveQ
washdc23 (if he comes to UCLA)
ohnowhathaveidone (committed to fitness excellence!)
balla

So our first marching orders: bombard washdc23 with PMs and photos of the school to help him/her understand ;)

Oh, and Hope, we've got Wooden Center access. I'm really happy - first real gym since I left OU!

Seriously, I'm thinking we can do three things:

1) Set up common work out times for some accountability. We'll never get something that works for everybody, but it'll help to have at least one person to come along......

2) Put together our own goals and help each other stick with them. For example, Hope appears to be a real runner, as that trail race looks like at least 25K. Wow! Most I've ever done is 10K, so we're obviously at a little different level. So wherever we are in our fitness, we can put together a plan and get some tips and encouragement from each other. Last year, I lost fifty pounds largely because I had a group to motivate and help me stay motivated. So if you're just getting started - hang in there! Effort and a good group can change a lot. I've gained a lot of it back......but that's all changing.

3) Maybe, if you guys are interested, we could do some study scheduling as well. I found that it helped to stay with the gym if there were times where I was already committed to studying, so I couldn't use that as an excuse and then goof off on the internet.

Anybody else? Come on, I know you're down, TLS!

I'm just going with the bank I already have an account with for my lender. Does anyone know if there are any specific benefits to choosing any specific one? From what I understand, the terms of the loans are going to be fairly uniform across all the available lenders.

damn hope, that looks ridiculous. are you doing the 25k or the 50k? I'll go with you and I'll decide how badly I want to injure myself after I see the course.

ari, you lost 50 f*cking pounds!? wow, nice work. and great idea for the workout group. Glad to see you kids working together even before we get to school.

but, um, I'm a gunner and I will outbench you all.

PS. ari, f studying. lets do some lay in the sun scheduling

I could be down for working out, but probably not early morning before school, I don't know how hip all yall other folks are to pulling that kind of schedule, but that's way too early for me.


I'm up for bball or working out everyday though, sounds like fun to me. But a nine o clock class is early enough.

im in ( though 10ish pm seems more realistic than early morning for me). unless i dont live in westwood then i'll need you guys to force me to get to campus early in the am then. the gym is like a zoo 10am-10pm with 30 min limits on cardo equipment cause of all the people waiting. oh i also called wooden to ask if id start getting free access in august and the girl i was talking to said it should work but some people last year had to pay a summer fee cause the gym's computer didnt update or something to know that he law students are already in school.

edit- wooden offers lots of great classes for a nominal fee too. in undergrad i took intro classes to yoga, tennis and meditation. i'll prob do the meditation class again- very relaxing to lie around for an hour. i think they usually cost $20-30 depending on the class- horse riding/ sailing etc are of course more. if youre really cheap, for a lot of group classes the instructor won't care who you are and whether or not you paid. i think i just starting going to the meditation class with a friend and never paid for it :oops:

this is all contingent on my pulling myself away from my new found crack (otherwise known as the Pokemon Diamond game) long enough to attend law school/ go to the gym.

as for financial aid... i need help deciding too.

and- did anyone send in pictures yet? why do they need our pictures?

I think they use them to put on your student ID card or "bruin card".

odd. cause the bruin card office has a camera and they take a picture of you to put on your card.

Pictures will be used to create the UCLA Law 2011 Facebook and also be available to our profs....
They will actually have sheets with our names/pics...
No escaping the Socratic method!

Got in off the waitlist about a month ago, but never got around to posting here. I like to workout on my own, but if anyone wants to play basketball, I'm down.

Anyway, just wanted to say hi. Looking forward to meeting everyone.

OK so who is gonna start the UCLA Law 2011 Physical Fitness Society group on Facebook?

Sounds like we might have to have 2 chapters - perhaps a morning group and evening group.

Back when I was in undergrad I was lucky and didn't have to worry about taking out loans, so this whole law school financial aid stuff is new to me. I have my eFAN and know how much I want to borrow and which lender I want to use.

I apologize for my ignorance but do I need to go into a Wells Fargo branch (the lender I want) and set it up there, or does the UCLA financial aid office take care of everything once I select them as my lender on the eFAN acceptance screen? I'm guessing UCLA takes care of it, but I'm not sure. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

I'll start a group - I'll make it secret so that we can post up contact info and stuff without having to worry about it. If I haven't PMed you, PM me and we'll find each other on facebook.

Def. the 25k for me!

I am also still confused about choosing a lender and going with Grad Plus vs. private lender - too many choices... I am trying to set up an appointment with the fin aid office and just knock it out

I'm terrible at basketball but if anyone still wants to do softball that sounds like fun. Also PM me if any future C/O '11ers are on facebook so we can be friends :D

Hi everyone. I've decided to come to UCLA and I need workout buddies, too! I ran a marathon in high school, but I've been way too lazy lately. Kickball, etc. would be fun as well.

Oh, and I am going to the cocktail reception later this month. Anyone who can come should! We will make it cool.

We're now up to twelve, with the complete list below. Everyone has gotten a PM with my Facebook - so make sure to add me or message me on Facebook so that I can send you a group invitation. If you're not on Facebook, that's cool too: PM me and let me know and I'll send you my email address and we can keep in touch that way. We're already posting workout agendas for the summer on the Facebook group, so I'm hoping we can get rolling before we even get to Westwood!

Sorry for reasking, but do we need to initiate our financial aid and choose our lender through our eFAN first or do we need to go to a lender and speak with them?
