What is the LA Alumni event I keep hearing about? Is it something worth driving up from San Diego for?

No matter what, you're going to be paying quite a bit to live in SF/Bay Area. There are a few areas that are a little cheaper than downtown, but that requires a little bit of a commute and it's really not that much cheaper unless you end up sharing something.

The Mission is a really cool area though. I plan on living there for my 2L.


Thanks!

Hastings alum have organized happy hours all around cali (and one in DC) for admitted students. Basically like a meet n greet/mixer kind of a thing. I know they are having them in other cities in cali so you should probably call the admissions office or the alumni relations people and ask them ... I just randomly found out about the DC event while googling for a DC alumni chapter.

I'm def going to the 03/21 and probably the day before to sit in on the Food and Drug Law class or the immigration class on friday morning in case anyone wants to drive up on thursday.

The admissions person actually told me that no UC Schools do and was surprised when I told him that Cal and UCD both provide travel stipends.

I'm going to be going to the March 21 admitted students event and am driving up from LA on thursday probably (i'm trying to attend a class on Friday morning).

Are you going to the event they're holding in LA on March 19? I probably will also be going to the March 21 event. Any interest in carpooling?


I could probably swing leaving thursday night around 9. Is that too late?

Also, for those looking for housing stuff, (in case you didn't see this) I noticed this in the housing section of the admitted students section of the Hastings Website: --LinkRemoved--

It looks like a place for people to find roommates or people to sublet or take their leases, etc., so that might be a good place to look.

Just deposited at McAllister. I'm still not sure whether or not I'll go but I just wanted to take the stress off the housing situation there. The woman on the phone said that there were still roughly 50 spots open (about half) but that was last week. If I do decide to go there I'd like to find something other than the tower but thought it might be a good fall back.

the way i understood it when i talked to the property manager was that they find out how many of the current tenants are leaving first and then fill the vacant spots. she said that they usually have the responses from the current tenants around march or april and then let the applicants know in like may or june. i applied back in early to mid january and am apparently #14 on the list, so things are looking pretty good for me if there are 50 spots open. not sure where you'd be on the list if you just applied. should probably ask her to get a better feeling for whether you'll get a spot in the tower.

I haven't seen the inside of the rooms- I visited on a day in which they weren't running tours but I did see inside the tower and posted a few pictures from that little adventure. I have however seen pictures from the inside of an efficiency room- I think I found them on a hastings facebook group...but I can't fully remember.

And I spoke to the housing lady last week and today. She said that they were expecting about 100 spots to be open (give or take a few) and that currently they had about 50 people waiting. She said if I sent in my deposit today that I'd get a spot however she couldn't gurantee whether it would be an efficiency, studio or one bedroom. A majority of the rooms are studios and efficiencys though so she said my chances at one of the two were good.

I don't really want to live in the tower so if I find something better I will take it, but being that I'm from out of state and know one person in SF, I'd like to have a backup plan.

Im planning to give my deposit in the next few days as well. As long as I can just walk across to the school I'd be happy. I spent years commuting to campus and this will be a welcome change.

Just bought my plane ticket and reserved my car for ASD on 4/4. I hate spending money. I guess I should get used to it.

That's good to know. I turned in my deposit way back in the middle of December and still haven't heard anything.

I haven't either. I could be confusing my schools, but I think Hastings said it would take two weeks after submitting the Need Access, FAFSA, and their form. It's been longer than two weeks, but I'm trying not to freak out yet.

No word on fin aid yet but I've only heard from 1 out of 8 schools so far so I'm not terribly concerned, just annoyed.
