This would be my own sincere hope, as well...

I thought some people had posted earlier that L&C was offering up to $500 for travel to their ASW? Was that only for special people?
I found some hotels in Portland that were not bad for much lower than the discounted L&C hotels. However, there is no shuttle to the school, so you would have to get a ride somehow.
The $500 was only for certain students (it says so in the letter). It was probably their (adcom) intention in stating that that people not reveal that the money was offered to them (but that's just my guess). However, they might be willing to reimburse for some expenses if you ask them. I don't know, but it cannot hurt to ask.
On the running out of money, I know that L&C ran out last year by some time in February. I'm sure that some money will come available in April, but your guess is as good as mine as to how much and to whom it will go. I can totally understand how needing to know about money before committing is important. I could not commit somewhere unless I knew I was going to get money. However, maybe the money will come available before the first seat deposit is due.
