Hi,

I will be attending UC Hastings and my apartment at McAllister Tower will not be available until August 28th.  The problem is classes start on August 16th for lL.  I have been looking at the housing site at UC Hastings and found the residence clubs to be the most affordable.  I can rent a room with a private bath for $300/week.  They also have shared rooms and shared bathrooms like a lot of youth hostels.  Has anyone had any experience with residence clubs in San Francisco?  I am specifically interested in the ones around UC Hastings/Union Square/Downtown.  A few recommeded by UC Hastings are 1) Harcourt Residence Club, 2) Kenmore Residence Club, 3) Monroe Residence Club, and 4) San Francisco Residence Club.

I received a phone call today from UC Hastings informing me that I was called off the Wait List and offered a place in their entering class for 2004.  Yipee!!!  My deposit check has already been FedEx. 

To everyone out there still on a Wait List; Good things can still happen.

Ciao.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / UC Hastings & UC Davis Waitlists

Has anyone been offered a spot off the waitlists at UC Hastings or UC Davis?  If you did, did you contact them beforehand?

I am thinking about enrolling in either the Barbri or Law Preview law school prep course.  Has anyone heard anything good or bad about either?  Both cost around $1000.  Law students I have talked to have consistantly said they wished they had attended a prep course.

I am still waiting by my mailbox hoping to hear from UCLA, UC Hastings, & USC.  My applications were completed in November.  Aside from postcards telling me my applications were complete, I have received no other communications.  My numbers are: 3.33 GPA from UCSB, 162 & 166 LSAT.  I have also been working for the last ten years at a biotech company.  Anyone else still waiting like me?

LSAT horror stories / Don't forget your ID.
« on: January 30, 2004, 09:14:47 PM »
So, you know how the LSAT booklet reminds you not to forget your ID?  Well, don't forget to bring it.

To relax the day before the December 2002 test, I went to the gym.  I usually just take my driver's license and gym membership card in a clear plastic holder with me.  When I got home, I just threw everything in the washer.  The next morning when the LSAT registration lady asked for my ID, I couldn't find it.  Then I remembered it was in the washer at home.  I wasn't allow to take the LSAT, so I was pretty much drunk by 10 AM at the bar down the street.

Due to going to the gym, I forgot my ID.  Because I forgot my ID, I couldn't sit for the LSAT.  Becasue I missed the LSAT, I couldn't apply for Fall 2003.  Because I couldn't appy for Fall 2003, I had to wait a year for law school.  Therefore, I am never going to the gym again.  ;-)
