Parking fee? I think it's $10 max.



$10 to park each time?

Depends on how long you're in each time.

So am I more or less better off not bringing my car there? I assume you mean it's $10 minimum each time?

A car isn't necessary and depending on where you live, you may end up moving the car once a week for street cleaning and that will be about it's normal weekly use.

I live about 4 blocks from Hastings, and from that area I'm able to get most places easily. The only time I use my car is when I am lazy and I want to go do laundry or food shopping.

There are also Zip Car's, which are a GREAT service and something to definitely look into if you aren't going to be using your car every day.

Also be aware that Civic Center BART and Muni (underground) are about 2 blocks from Hastings, so you can get from the East Bay or from the South to school using public transit.

Damn. It looks like I might have to take my car off my parents' insurance policy then. I'll miss being able to pack Costco groceries into the trunk. Guess this is the car-obsessed Southern Californian inside of me talking.

For parking at the school's lot or garage, right?

Has anyone heard back about their CA residency status yet? Is there a way to check whether or not CA residency was granted short of calling the office?

I got a couple of emails recently from them, asking for some supporting documentation and to clear up some questions. So they are definitely working on them at present.

It should show up on your webadvisor account when processed.

For me, in "My Documents" under "Status" it just says "Received," and I sent it in the first day they wanted it. Haven't heard anything back. Is there anywhere else to look?

Regarding CA residency: I e-mailed them about 10 days ago and received an e-mail back that I approved for CA residency. Nothing has show up on "My documents"

What documents did you furnish for the CA residency form? Did you include EVERYTHING they list on the from that was applicable (such as license, lease, car registration, etc, etc)?

Other stuff of interest I found out from some phone calls: Invoices will be mailed out today. They apparently will include a charge for health insurance, which, if you have your own insurance and it is "acceptable", this amount will be reimbursed to you at a later date. The is is what I was told by fiscal; health told me they didn't know what the amount would be....so I'm not sure how we can be billed for it--whether it's a guestimate or what..

Regarding CA residency, I submitted everything they asked for and then some; W2s for the past three years (with the numbers blacked out), housing details, utility bills, driver's license, auto registration, voter registration...the whole enchilada. It took me agood 2-3 hours to assemble number, and organize the stuff.

I received the June 14th e-mail, responded immediately, but no phone call as of yet.

Should I call Mr. Canada to express my continued interest (again), and inquire as to status --> number of spots left?

Hastings is hands-down, no questions, my first choice. I majored in French and Government, and I want to combine these areas of interest with law. UCH has a joint J.D./LL.M program where students have the opportunity to study public/private European law during 3L at the University of Paris II. AMAZING. Absofreakinglutely amazing.

I'm also super stressy because I've been simultaneously securing my spot at Santa Clara and that ain't cheap. I'll have to start planning the move down to Silicon Valley (whereas I'd live at home in the east bay for UCH) as well as getting tuition/financial aid squared away with them soon. Too soon. GAH. :|

As we head into July, it looks to me the wait-listers at T20 schools are slowly withdrawing from UCH. A bunch of us got seat offers on Monday if that's anything to go off of. What are your numbers? If they're better than mine (3.65/161 and most UCH admits' are) and if you've already expressed interest in the study abroad program in your app and LOCIs, I'd give you more than a 50/50 chance.

Thanks for the insight! It's true - I hope the T20 wait-listers get into their dream schools so that I may have a chance at mine! My numbers are lower than yours, so I probably do not have such a high chance, but they know all about my interest in the program. :)

In the same boat, good luck keep holding tight!
I really hope they get to us, word from Gator is that they
are throwing out some more offers on Thurs, hopefully
we can be in that group and the order of the universe will
be restored.

Its just tough to deal with as I am making plans to secure
housing at the school I have already accepted!


Anyways good luck, things usually happen for a reason!

I could be wrong. But I heard somewhere that wait-list numbers are typically on average lower than those of initial admits.' Once again, I don't have the source to back up such a claim, but if it's true, it makes sense. Many of those forfeiting dropping their deposits with UCH are/were probably waiting as late as orientation day to get into their dream school, making UCH their safety. These are kids with extraordinarily high numbers who're just below YP levels. It does help to know that many such numbers posted on the first 20+ pages were nothing short of impressive with the numerous cases of 3.8+ and/or 165-168+. I won't be surprised if WL numbers are truly trending downward from the initial admit numbers. Besides, I was told by someone in an earlier page of the UC Davis thread that my chances of getting in were pretty much nada. I'd say they're scrutinizing PSes and resumes more closely.

If it's any comfort, my nationality is (probably) considered overrepresented at UCH and the UC system as a whole.


Hope that helps. I'm off to bed. *Yawn*

Still waiting with you guys, Cice and heady! Congrats to everyone that got an offer! It looks like there's been some movement in the top 20 WLs like Penn. Hopefully there's some more calls today.
