how can they completely fill housing before the seat deposit is actually due? makes me wonder why i paid the #30 application fee...

so anyone looking for a roommate?


If you really want Weyburn, I say get on the law school housing waitlist. Chances are, a number of people who put their name on that list will choose not to attend UCLA or decide they want to live elsewhere. Was the lady in housing talking about the regular Weyburn waitlist or the law school one? I have a feeling that the law school Weyburn waitlist will start to move well before August.

she was talking about the general housing waitlist...schwartz told me that the law school also had a waitlist and he said he would keep my request on file...he also said that they would know more details next week...i am assuming this is because they will see who actually sends in their seat deposits for the May 1st deadline...i really hope it works out though because i am going to be in europe all summer and completely unable to do any kind of housing search!

I went ahead and e-mailed Robert Schwartz directly and asked to be placed on the wait list. He got back literally one minute later. Good response time!

Hopefully that wait list isn't too large. They indicated at ASW that the wait list usually clears pretty fast, but it wasn't clear if they were referring to the wait list at the law school or the overall housing lottery. Flying out to L.A. to search for housing this summer isn't really something I'm really looking forward to, nor within my budget, so hopefully I'll manage to get in somehow.

Some students got guaranteed housing as part of their admissions package, so I assume that they have to hold those spots until May 1st. Maybe the law school wait list will start to move after that date.

I'm really surprised that in the time between the email I sent yesterday at 2:50 PM and now, there is a waitlist for housing. Wow!

Hmm, well maybe that means the wait list isn't too long. But you're making me really regret e-mailing the admissions office, instead of Dean Schwartz directly, since I e-mailed them on Saturday and they never got back to me. There probably wasn't a waiting list on Saturday. :roll:

Yeah, the only reason I emailed Dean Schwartz is because someone at the ASD told me to. Did you tell them you were coming from out of state and wouldn't be able to visit over the summer to find a place? I made that really clear in my email, and I'm pretty sure it helps your cause. :)

So I guess my temporary freak out was completely unecessary because today I got an email from the law school saying I was off the waitlist for housing and now was guaranteed for Weyburn .... so the waitlist is probably pretty short and I bet there will be a ton of more openings after the May 1st deadline...YAY!

Others were saying it took about 2 weeks, but I'm hoping that since it's a little later in the game and the housing deposit is due May 19, we find out more quickly! :)

Congrats Beeker. The fact that you moved off the wait list so quickly gives me hope. Who knows maybe it was just me and you? Hopefully I'm next. You got placed on the wait list on Monday, right? There can't be too many people between us.

Anybody have some insight on parking at weyburn? It seems like the parking apps aren't available yet (even though the stated date for them to open was today, I believe), and I'm wondering if I should accept the offer before I have a parking app on file.

Where did you find the parking app for Weyburn? I read somewhere that you apply the day you move in, but that makes absolutely no sense!

This is what is on the housing web about it...i think you checked a box on your housing application about parking though...

When I spoke to the Weyburn office, they said that you were supposed to check a "need parking" box on the housing application mainly as a way to let them know what the demand for spots would be like. You can't actually apply for parking until the day you move in though. It's pretty much first-come-first-serve. :?

It has been really quiet in here lately! There have been people trickling into the facebook group though. :D
As for the student ticket packages, I have definitely been considering getting one. The bruins might not be the best at football, but I don't really care! I just want to be able to go to some games...my undergrad didn't have a football team:/

I'm gonna try to go to as many games as possible. maybe this is optimistic, but hopefully taking a few hours to watch football every saturday isn't gonna relegate me to the bottom of the class, right?? :)

I've had non-student season tix to football and basketball since I graduated from undergrad. Basketball is a lot more fun, but the Rose Bowl's a good time too. Get the tickets.

It's time to get this thread going again!

So, has anyone else received a grad housing offer yet? (Incidentally, have you been able to log into the UCLA move-in reservation system? For I am having troubles :()
