they gave you your email as soon as you submitted the first deposit?

I didn't submit mine though it was due yesterday... I really need the financial info before I donate $500....

I love and dread getting my assigned email. My last name is unfortunately 9 letters long, and the username is limited to 8 characters.

So my last name is cut off right at the end. It's been like that everywhere.

I think we're talking about that WebAdvisor email, indicating our username/email address. The immunization records are required for enrollment, regardless of med insurance.

I was just gonna get on here and tell y'all that, nope, nothing for me. I'm one of the email recipients —like Sibley and I think missinglink, who got the email and later the offer of admission. It will have been 10 days tomorrow when they sent the email. I responded with the info. and an attached LOCI, so if they don't make an offer, it won't be because I didn't express interest!
We'll see...


Tommytahoe- I still haven't received a call yet either...looks like we're getting the torture treatment! I keep getting random phone calls from unknown area codes too.

I wish I could change my profile name. When I lived at Tahoe I was a big Sopranos and Goodfellas fan, and I created this mafia alias, "Tommytahoe." This is the last remnant of that moniker... thought I'd share.
Yeah, I have completely zenned out on the Hastings wheels of progress. If they are going to call me, there must be a process at work here, defined by all those things adcomms have to worry about: deposits, withdrawals, competing with schollies from lesser schools. These things can be achingly gradual. I will just wait.
If they are NOT going to make an offer, well, there's nothing I can do about it. I have sent them the LOCI stuff, my interest is 100% and sincere.
Just gotta wait. :)

Thank you Hastings. We gotta find a way to revive this thread somehow. Where is everyone planning on living?

I wanted to look for cheap housing in the East Bay. I've also heard of people living in the UCSF dorms?

I walked around the Tenderloin, and that's a no go for me at least. It's ok for work, but I can't live there.

Right now I'm looking at places in Alamo Square, preferably close to the #5 Muni line.

I'll be living in forest hill extension, found a great deal from another Hastings student renting out a section of his house. I'll have to take the bus to school though

After speaking with a Hastings graduate, he said one of his only regrets was not living in the city while he went to school.

My wife and I have been looking around Telegraph, Nob Hill, North Beach area. We've found a lot of cheaper places in "Lower Nob Hill" but I think the name is deceiving. It really isn't "Nob Hill" it's more like "Upper Tenderloin". We've also found some nicer places in the Marina, but they come with a higher price. There are some cheaper places in the Richmond/Sunset district. It would be a farther commute to school, but the cheaper prices and greater availability of parking may be worth it.

Does anyone else have a document called "Stafford Entrance interview" in their webadvisor? What is that supposed to be?

I turned down a spot on the waitlist yesterday. Hopefully one of you will pick it up. Good luck!

Where exactly is it? I'm on the main page and don't see anything like that.

It may be there if you need to do the entrance counseling for Stafford Loans.

Regarding Tower housing. . .Does anyone know if the remaining deposit due (the one that we pay within 10 days after the apartment offer) is refundable at all, even partially? I'm just afraid that I'll get accepted off the waitlist at another school and be out almost $2000. I assume the security and cleaning deposit would be refundable.

I asked about this last week -- it's only refundable if they can find another person to place in your assigned apartment. (As of about a week ago, they still had spots open in the tower, whereas they normally have a waiting list at this point in the year, for the record.) If they CANT find another person to fill the spot, then your security deposit, cleaning fee, and first month's rent will all be eaten up as your "rent" for an apartment that is vacant.

It's freaking me out too...

Not sure about this, but I doubt they'd take the cleaning fee and security deposit in this situation. Why would they, if you never moved in? They might take all or part of first month's rent, but if they really can't find a replacement, this wouldn't seen too outrageous. They shouldn't take any, but I guess this is how they try to make sure people are serious.

Also, the openings they have now are for the more expensive units in general, there's a waitlist for efficiencies.

OK, well if you're sure about the waitlist for the efficiency, then I feel much better since that's what I have. The sucking up of the security deposit, cleaning fee, and first month's rent seems pretty screwy to me, considering we wouldn't have even signed a lease until we actually arrived. Lame.

That's called the "TenderNob." That name makes me LOL.
