No family specific housing but families do live in the tower.

Has anyone received an acceptance packet via snail mail? I've only received my acceptance+scholarship via email, but I'd like some physical copy stuff for my records.

There's been a "Decision Rendered" status listed on the online status page since 2/15. So far no email or no snail mail. Should I be worried?

Did anyone just receive an email saying "Congratulations on your enrollment at UC Hastings!" in the first line from the president of ASUCH? I haven't put a deposit down anywhere yet, so that's a little weird...

Yeah I got that email too. I'm guessing it was just a typo or something?

Yes, I have been waitlisted. www.lawschoolnumbers.com is where you can view data from prior cycles, of people who were admitted from the waitlist.

Does anyone know, do schools typically wait until applications are closed (3/31/17) until beginning to admit applicants from the waitlist? Thank you!

I just sent it to admissions, after all, that's who offered me a scholarship in the first place.

I sent it to the general admissions email and they emailed back after a little over a week.

How is everyone planning on the place to live?
I've googled and read yelp about McAllister tower and negatives do not outweigh the positives for me...
How are you finding roommates and other apartments?

I know Hastings offers the link to off-campus, but do you guys really selecting places from this link?
I live outside of US and cannot plan to visit till last minute so any advice would be helpful.

Use the map function on Craigslist. Also check out Bay area housing Facebook groups. If it were me, I would try to find somewhere within walking distance of Hastings in south of Market ('SOMA'), or somewhere on a bus line in the Richmond District/Outer Sunset (quieter/more family oriented area), or somewhere near a Bart station. But, none of that is easy to find, it takes a good amount of work to find a good place to live in the Bay. Oakland can be a quieter, more laid back place than SF, if you lived near Bart in Oakland, you could take Bart to Hastings.
