A little over a week ago I got a new Blackberry in LA. I got Metro PCS because the sales person recommended it and I have never been to LA before. She said it has good coverage. It did - in the store. It doesn't work indoors anywhere else. It ain't too great outdoors either.
A while ago on this thread someone recommended Verizon. Is there any other suggestions or is that the general consensus that verizon is the best in the area?

Verizon is, by far, the best for the LA area.

This is right...however, all cell phone service sucks at UCLA. My Verizon phone had a few dead spots here and there, and dropped a bunch of calls. Don't know if thats changed since '07.

Hey Guys,

I know this is rather insignificant, but I'm curious. Given that Berkeley's medians fell this year (!) when do you suppose we'll find out what our class's medians are? Also, do you think they'll drop? Since Berkeley saw an increase in apps but their numbers fell across all quartiles, do you think they dropped because of errors on the admissions staff's part or because of the tuition hikes?

Oh god. Let's bet right now how many people will try and transfer at the end of spring semester.

Woo...

Now if my damn financial aid would hurry up.

I've really been having trouble with this crap.


I think finaid is released on August 9th, so you have a couple of days.

Someone in the fin aid office ahead of me in line was asking for a loan for $3000. I am pretty sure if you need money they will hook you up with a no interest loan until your fin aid comes in.

I got parking yesterday and sections today. It is starting to feel like back to school time is here.

if you're in weyburn terrace, i had this same problem and i guess it was an issue with the wireless networks - WIFI_RES and WEB_RES restrict law.ucla.edu sites for whatever reason. if you set up SECURE_RES, everything works. :)

anyone else moved in yet?

I was able to log on with my ursa login, but I ended up buying a wireless router because signal is pretty bad in weyburn

Has anyone checked their bill yet? I was wondering if that was with or without health insurance.

financial aid was supposed to be disbursed yesterday evening. has this shown up in any of your bar billing accounts yet? i'm not sure if there's a problem with mine, or if it just takes a bit to show up on the ursa website.
help!

If it shows up on your view financial aid summary/awards as disbursed, you can be pretty confident that it's coming.

Mine hasn't, but they accept credit card payments, or alternatively you can get a "bridge loan"
