My mom says I'm cool. :P

I would be interested. It can make it a bit cheaper too.

I've read on here that it would be around 600-800 a month (1200-1600) around Berkeley for a 2 bedroom, 1 bath place.

So, that is pretty good, all things considered.

Now, if I can find a roommate that is cool with, um, "medicating" occasionally on the weekends, then we would be very cool.

Sorry I forgot to come on here for awhile. Yeah there's some great places in town that are 2 bedrooms. My issue is my partner will be moving to Berkeley around April of next year once he's out of active duty in the Air Force. I guess most people wouldn't be comfortable sharing a two bedroom with 2 other people for a couple months till the lease runs out. I'll probably end up having to just get a studio.

Has anyone requested a student host for ASW or is everyone doing hotels?

I really hope they start telling us about student hosts like previous years. I was totally banking on that and not having to get a hotel.

i'm in! any insight on 1) how financial aid is distributed? 2) what percentage of out-of-state applicants are accepted? if berkeley only accepts 10% of total applicants, i have to imagine that number is lower for out-of-state

thanks in advance! cannot wait to meet you all in april:-) :-) :-)

Took a while for me in CO, but mostly because it was postmarked 2/21, 5 days after acceptance. You will get an email too asking you to set up a UC ID and stuff, and that is your access to admitted student stuff.

Current students got an e-mail asking for hosts so there will be hosts available but I have no idea if they always have enough for all the attendees. I'm signed up to host somebody.

There are a few hostels in the area or places on airbnb.com if anyone ends up without a place to stay.

Any chance of getting a subsidized/free hotel for ASW? Dean Tom said Berkeley would fly me in for ASW but the accepted email says Boalt will help defray the costs, so not sure how finances will work.

Unless you are some special circumstance I don't know about, you get $300 for flying from out of California, $150 if flying from flying in-state.

Thanks. Guess that means I should buy my plane ticket ASAP bc I'm coming from the East Coast.

Driving: 500 mile drive that'll take 8 hours. Pros: I'll have my car. Cons: IT'S 8 HOURS!

Flying: 5 hours + because of a LONG layover at LAX, plus an additional hour to get to Berkeley by Bus/BART. Pros: I'll just sit around waiting. Cons: I'll have to wonder "did I get the right trolley? Is this the right bus? Is this my stop?" etc., oh and walking, lots of walking.

What do you guys think?


if i were you i would drive in a heartbeat bc i don't mind long car rides and you'll have more of a chance to explore.
