I think I am going to look at the Haight, Sunset, North Beach, or Russian Hill...so many interesting areas to choose from! I really hope this housing day thing pans out. I have to assume at least a couple of folks will be looking for roomies like me. I talked to a 1L at admit day...she said this is how she found her roommate. Should be interesting!
One thing for you all to consider w/ the districts you pick...there is a big difference in the weather from one area to the next. I *&^% you not!
The fog rolls over SF and some areas are perpetually lingering in clouds/fog. North Beach, for example, is often a lot more sunny than the Presidio or the Marina. I am originally from the Midwest...land of humidity, snow, rain, and crap weather. San Fran definitely has its own weird micro-climates. I personally don't care about how the weather will be...I assume my face will be in a case book anyways!
