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.
Thank you for the useful information. I will try.
