Dorm-sized probably means this:

It'll be too damn small to fit everything, so I may have to consider getting something bigger.

Lets be real here, none of us are shooting for being at the median...

I'm not confident the dorm-sized fridge will allow me to brown-bag my lunches and dinners. Any chance someone could recommend me a decently priced fridge for one?

Costco usually has a pretty decent small-to-mid size fridge in stock that seems intended for students.

I'll probably stop by just to check some out tomorrow. Thanks for the suggestion.

If you are thrifty, I'd also check out craigslist. I can only imagine there are a bunch of mini fridges going up there over a period of time. Depending on how the fridge in the studio works out for me, I might pick on up (plus it can act as counter space :) ).

Target has a great mid sized one for 159.00. Take 280 south to Colma.

Not sure if it'll fit in my car. Does Target do deliveries for extra? I may need help bringing it up to my place.

Not sure if they deliver; I have a four door sedan and it barely fit on the back seat...

maybe this is a dumb question, but does everyone have to go to all three days of orientation? it just seems like a LOT of time for something like that

It's says "mandatory orientation", so I'm guessing they want you to be there all three days.

If you don't go, I doubt they'll do anything to you, but is it really that bad?

You guys should all go to orientation and say hi to me ("wave your hand back if you are a male human!") because I'll be too shy to approach anyone.

Trust me, I'm the same. But like it or not, we'll have to make friends fast if we want to form weekly study groups.



Not that I'm really advocating that we cede our anonymity on TLS, but if the Hastings people here ever want to meet up to share tips and outlines, I'd be totally down for it.

I don't even know how we're supposed to study. Is it basically office hours with people who don't know anything who end up just sharing YouTube videos?

I'd go to orientation all three days; they will have the finest restaurants in SF catering the event (much like ASD) and numerous raffles for IKEA furniture.

I figured if anything else there would be free food at orientation. 8)

I missed ASD. Which restaurants catered the event?

Dumb question. Does the Tower have mattresses already, or do we need to buy our own.

Did anyone else receive an email a couple of days ago saying that the orientation schedule had been posted on webadvisor?? My phone buzzed late at night, so I was half asleep when I saw the email, but when I woke up the next morning, the email had vanished. Anyone else experience this???

I haven't gotten an email since 7/1

Never mind, checked Outlook Web. Does anyone else find this system pretty difficult to use? I have to go to some "email" page on the uchatings website, and then if I don't remember my login info, there's no easy way to recover it.

No email here. Just checked webadvisor and didn't see anything on there either.

I've got the email in my .edu account with a link to the PDF orientation schedule. I've got my student email account set up as an exchange server on my iphone, so I receive push notifications when something is sent to that account. I'd probably never check that account otherwise.
