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.


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.

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.  ;-)
