i didn't, but the lottery instructions page said we should receive it by this Friday, so there's still some time. i'm just crossing my fingers that the room i ended the lottery with is actually my room.

refresh me... what # did you have?  just curious

sorry - 151 was my number.

also, i'd emailed HLS Cleaners / HSA and this is their reply :

-------------------
Thanks a lot for the input! We're working on getting locations at the
law school as well as the business school - if everything goes as
planned, we will have them by the fall!
Best,

--------------------

also, while this is hardly news or original speculation, i have to say that HLS dorms are really terrible compared to other law school dorms i keep reading about, not to mention new undergrad dorms. the no kitchen still bothers me even though my culinary skills are honestly limited to heating food up.  :D still i'd rather the proximity and convenience of a dorm room.

oh yeah- i wonder how many times the office was emailed about the fact that supposedly we're going to get final confirmation of our dorm room by "April 18th" or something like that? anyways, despite the deadline being over, i'm still on the edge of my seat as to how the housing thing is going. i still don't know if they've integrated people who didn't participate in the actual lottery but turned in an app or not- stands to reason they should have done so at least before the deadline, but if that's the case, i'm surprised that i'm still in Hastings. i'm so totally excited but still paranoid that something's going to happen and i'll still get bumped.. even now. hmmm :D

i remember lacoste mentioning the wash - dry - fold services and i was looking them up- nice deal, $100 i think for the academic year for 1 dropoff/week.. i would so do it because i'm lazy and not having to wait on washer/dryers would be awesome, and the price is great, but the dropoff locations are horrendous- i don't think any of them are at ALL convenient to the law school.. at all. what's the point of getting convenient laundry service if you have to walk like .. i dunno.. many blocks to get to a location? i realize the campus is large, and probably Harvard undergrads are the primary target, but the pickup locations seem really concentrated down south of the law campus. too bad :P

link is here for any of you that are interested to check out what i'm babbling about:

the last guy i dated was significantly hotter than me, in that he probably could have been in a boy band and fit right in. absolutely gorgeous/beautiful. thoughts? well.. let's put it this way. i would have had no problem marrying him, or anyone else that hot as long as they were truly in love with me (insofar as i can determine that). but i will admit that when there's that much of an unbalance in looks, it is really disconcerting. it was one thing to abstractly think about how attractive he must be to other people, and another thing to hear stories (occasionally from him, occasionally from mutual friends) about the girls that were constantly hitting on him. i felt special, but also extremely insecure. i'm not a jealous person and when our relationship had to move long distance i think i didn't do a bad job of letting him knowi trusted him. so i don't think i pressured him or acted jealous, etc.. but i did FEEL insecure, and it's not a fun feeling. in the end, we broke up due to the distance issue and he had another new "love of hs life, can't live without her" within a couple of months. so much for hot young guys, anyways. it was sort of a silly fling, but i'll have to say it left quite a scar. i think it's just a lot easier to date someone who isn't movie star hot, anyways.

as lily suggested, hot guys probably do cheat more often. at the very least, they're probably openly invited to temptation more often.

and sometimes you have to wonder.. yes i know i'm attractive and smart and fun and etc.. but what if one of these days he wakes up and really realizes that he can have the hottest girl on campus/school/work and nothing short of plastic surgery is going to make me look like a TV star. ok, i'm totally rambling but you can probably tell that i've done a lot of thinking on this rather silly subject, but it's still kind of a raw memory. ;)

i chose maybe so, but it probably wouldn't have made a difference. i had a high enough gpa and my lsat - 3 would still have probably left me where i am. then again, i'm not sure- cuz i had some iffy factors and my app decisions reflect that- acceptances kinda random, some surprising waitlists on either end of the spectrum.

Ack!! Why I am I still getting bumped at 5pm? I thought the lottery ended at 2pm.

I was bumped again today too, and it just said 219 people had chosen.  Did that many people decide to not even pick a room?  I logged in at about 5.15p to re-select.

Hmm, that's interesting. i guess a lot of people who weren't even sure they were going to attend HLS put in for the lottery, and possibly some people with later numbers didn't even want to try for Gropius or some such.  maybe this means there are quite a lot more acceptances left- or a lot of people choose to live off campus. looking for off campus options seems like a pain to me though.. and i dont know hwo people find subletters for the summer at the kind of rent you'd have to pay (900-1100 at least for a one bedroom or studio). you'd stil be paying several hundred during the summer even with a subletter paying 500+.


eta: actually, remember the room preferences thing we had to fill out? it says it'll be taken into consideration in case we miss the online lottery. i wonder if this means even more bumps for those of us that think we're relatively safe.

i'm guessing that anyone who has chosen at least once up to 2 pm friday can rebump people until Sunday. hmm

edited to add: actually the clarification email says 5 pm on Friday

Bumped from Hastings and NOT LET BACK IN!!!  176 people have chosen.  I'm locked out of Hastings; my numbers is fairly high up (150-250).

sorry lacoste :/

honestly the best thing about hastings for me is its absolute proximity to the gym. every extra minute to get to the gym will be an extra incentive for me not to go. haha
