Incoming 1Ls / Re: UCLA Bound

It did help make our decision knowing we had the option of living cheap on rent!  I know they have a lot of vacancies coming open right now so hopefully the wait list will start moving.

Hermosa would be a tough commute for me, but my husband works in El Segundo and we're both used to living near the beach (coming from San Diego) and I actually don't mind driving in traffic too much. We looked around Torrance as well, but even inland it's still too pricey. It could be worse though -- HR at his company was recommending we check out Long Beach.   :D

The housing was part of my acceptance package, I pretty much just called and told them what apartment I wanted and when I wanted to move in.  I was surprised, UCLA housing has been really responsive every time I call -- I live in student housing at UCSD right now and it is a bear to get them to return a phone call.

If no, then give Palms/ Venice a shot. Be careful, since some parts can be kind of seedy and have their share of gang activity...

Can you elaborate on this please?  :)

I was offered an apartment in University Village (married student housing) last week.  Sent in my deposit but we're still looking to rent a house in the Hermosa area if we can find one.

I think they probably want interesting interests -- we had an undergrad facebook at Duke (which the upperclassmen called the "Pig Book" because they used it to identify hot girls they wanted to invite to frat parties) and most people put their hobbies, interests, but not stuff like their intended major. The people that put down "Economics and world peace" didn't get invited to any frat parties.  ;) 

I wouldn't put "toga parties and pole dancing" but something like "Skiing, concerts, debate" is probably ok.

Acceptances, Denials, and Waitlists / Re: USC Wait list

I withdrew as well, and turned down a bit of scholarship $$.  Good luck!

Since the first deposit form had an option to 'tentatively attend', I was assuming that the second deposit form was supposed to be your 'final' decision. But I'm not sure if a waitlist acceptance is really something 'forseeable', so I think you might have some wiggle room there. 

I don't think you have to give any $$ until tuition is due in August.

wow, i wish they would offer me that, it would make a huuuuuuge difference! 

i submitted the first intent to register on-line on may 1, do you all know if we have a tuition deposit due anytime or if they have announced the deadline for the re-confirmation?  i got an email from Karman Hsu asking to notify them if my intent to register had changed, but since it hadn't I didn't respond to the email. other than that i have no real idea what information i am supposed to be giving them.

i called financial aid this morning and they told me they would not be sending out award letters (federal loans, etc) until next month.  i guess since they do direct lending this is not a problem for the staffords but will that give enough time to apply for private loans? 

i'll be seeing you all in the fall unless i decide to take a year off, with or without the 'deferral' offer!
