I just got off the phone a couple hours ago with the Dean of Admissions at Hastings. I was offered a seat off the waitlist, but I have to pay a $500 deposit by Friday. I'm holding out for BYU, but would gladly attend Hastings. The biggest holdup for me is finding a place for my family to live in the Bay Area. I am married and will have a one month old baby when school starts. We definitely don't want to live right in San Francisco because 1) too expensive, 2) too loud, and 3) too dangerous... we were both raised as country folk, so big city life is a little daunting to us
Anyone have any suggestions on good places to look in the Bay Area for people in my situation?
