The email came at 1pm PST Thursday the 29th right before the "happening at Columbia" email.

Eta: I actually haven't checked my status yet so I dunno if it's changed. I have no wifi access and I'm too lazy to remember my login to check on my phone.

Edit: for all of you who didn't get the email, is UAH not your first choice? The email specifically referred to UAH and not law school only housing.

It sounds tempting, perhaps we should start with a meetup? I'm in the bay area.

For people who were approved for a travel subsidy, did you receive the reimbursement yet? How long did it take to get to you? I went to the Monday's event on april 28th (or 29th, can't remember) and am just wondering if I should have gotten it by now

Went to the April ASW and haven't gotten anything from them yet. But then again, I did send the documents in pretty late.

I got mine three weeks ago and went to the first one in March. So, around two months. I'd check in with Jill, though. My proof of travel that I had initially sent was not sufficient so I had to send other stuff.

Nice! I got the approval email this morning and hopefully the assignment will follow as promptly as yours did! Did you get the move-in date you wanted?

Yup, got my offer one hour ago! Received the rent I wanted, and the unfurnished, though definitely not the move in date.
Looks like that inaugural happy hour will have to wait until August after all...

Also got my offer, but worried about having to decide without knowing the layout/size etc.

Got my assignment. I was really hopeful they could hit the $900 mark on the form, but I guess I can't be too disappointed since the price is so much cheaper than what I thought I would have to pay in NYC.
