Emailed Dean Schwartz about scholarship offer on 4/1 and haven't heard back yet. Should I followup or just wait?

I'd probably give it another day. Keep an eye out for an email from Danae McElroy too, since she might be the one actually responding.

Follow up. I waited 2 weeks before following up only to find out he'd lost the email and no action had been taken yet.

Do you lose your spot/scholly if you don't deposit tomorrow? How does that work?

There is no requirement to withdraw! I asked admissions this question.

Just deposited after negotiating some more money. Planning on riding a few waitlists just to see if I can continue negotiations, but I'm excited as hell to be a Bruin!

Do any LA residents/Bruins recommend getting a road bike to commute around the campus and surrounding area? It looks like Santa Monica is only a 30 minute bike ride away and you wont have to pay for parking.

How are the roads for biking around? Seriously considering it.

LA isn't the most bike-friendly city, but it's gotten better and is definitely doable. I know several people in the area that bike as their primary mode of transportation

+1.

I went to undergrad at UCLA, and most people I knew would bike to classes/around campus & the near vicinities, but I don't know how ideal it would be for 2L/3L, when you're doing externships and such off campus. Even that would be doable but not ideal (@least not for me, but then again, I'm merely a car-trapped LA gal).

I figured it would be best for daily stuff but I will also have my car with me as well.

Anyone have any insight as to motorcycle viability? I have a motorcycle but I am debating selling it for the extra spending money. The lane sharing seems like a dangerous thing with the traffic in LA. I would prefer not to be dead :(

I wouldn't. My partner was almost killed a few times by drivers. After a hit and run that left her knees messed up, she finally sold her bike and was done.

Not worth it, in my opinion.

That settles that debate for me. Out of curiosity, was there there any location that specifically caused most of this? As in, was it freeway or riding around town? If I use a bicycle will I be at similar risk? Honestly, I dont know anything about traffic out there for cyclists and motorcyclists.

Thanks for the input and I'm glad your partner gave up the bike. Hope she recovered.

Bikes are also dangerous. The traffic in Los Angeles is not bike friendly. They are aggressive, on their cell phones, putting on make-up and in a rush 99.9% of the time. My accidents occurred in neighborhoods and side roads. I was never on a freeway with my motorbike. Hard to live in LA without a car.
