I wish McG had a roommate connection site, or something. I don't even know where to begin looking.

I have just been looking for cheap places on Craigslist.

Does Pacific have a facebook group?

They do have one...but only if you already have a place and need to fill a room (and I think it's actually a physical board that they post it on in some office on campus).

It would be much more useful if it were a online database like Roomster.

I've been only using Craigslist also. I might also spend a weekend and just go up there to look at places. It would be much easier if they could provide us with a list of people who are looking for roommates. Definitely would help me to have a roommate to save on rent.

Got a call yesterday. Got off the waitlist and got accepted. They are pushing my file to the scholarship comm which is nice. The lady was super sweet.

I e-mailed Nancy Whalen the other day about finding a roommate and I got this:

We have a roommate connection service we maintain that could put you in touch with another student desiring the same. See the “roommate available” form which I have attached for your review. When you fill out the form and send it back to us, your information is posted on the campus Rent Boards and put on a (Word Doc) list that is emailed on request to other McGeorge students looking for a roommate. None of our listing are posted on the internet. Alumni and members of the community post share rental ads along with our students looking for good people to share housing. Our Rent Board list includes houses, apartments, duplexes and condos of all sizes and prices that are for rent, as well as other students desiring roommates. I have also attached the latest Rent Board listings.


She attached a current list of rentals available along with the roommate available form. If anyone wants a copy, I can forward it to you.

I will send an email to her tonight I guess. Get myself put on the list.

Did you ask about the on campus housing at all? They have the one dorm listed for only 650$ a month. That seems like a pretty good deal to me.

I didn't ask her about it. I think there was something in the acceptance packet/letter about getting priority in housing if you met a requirement but I'm not completely sure.

My first scholarship letter thing had a box to check if I wanted to be put on the priority list or something for housing, but I missed the deadline by a long way. I was still talking with Adam about a new scholarship and I didn't want to send in the acceptance form with that going on. So I guess that means I missed out on that, oh well.

I just emailed her so I hope I can get put on the roommate list or whatever.

Decision Rendered today. Do acceptances usually come via email? Am I doomed to a denial by snail mail?

I was DENIED! I am actually a little surprised about this one. Oh well, I didn't want to move to Sacramento anyway! Congrats and good luck to all that were accepted!!

Is anyone else still waitlisted that wants to attend McGeorge next year?

This waiting game is tough. =/

Out of nowhere I come home to a big packet from McGeorge with an acceptance! I was waitlisted a couple months ago and planned to send in a LOCI in late June with my updated LSAT (took the June LSAT to help bump my chances) but no I guess I don't need to send in either.

Congrats!

If you improved your LSAT score, I think it would be a good idea to still send it in JUST in case they'll be willing to a) give you scholarship money or b) increase the scholarship amount included in your acceptance packet. You never know!!

Congrats! Are you planning on going to McGeorge?

To follow up on a point above, give Dean Barrett an e-mail if your LSAT improves by a good amount. He may find a way to give you some $$$

What's odd is Dean Barrett called me Tuesday morning asking me some questions about if I'm still interested etc... I mentioned the LSAT retake and he told me to call back as soon as the results came in so I figured I wouldn't get a decision until late June. Today rolls around and I get this packet which was postmarked from Monday. So I'm not sure what happened but the end result is I got in which is a bit of a surprise.

I'm was leaning going T4 w/$$ but I'm from the central valley and McGeorge is looking like a pretty good choice. The only thing that isn't prefect is that the deposit for McGeorge is in a couple weeks and my LSAT results won't be out until June 25th-ish and I'd like to see if I get a decent bump in which I might leverage to get a few bucks. If I could muster even a small amount of $ from McGeorge it would be a done deal for me to go there.

Did they offer it up or did you call and negotiate? I'll be attempting to negotiate scholarship money next week after the LSAT results are out. You can pm me If you want
