Try the east side of campus, along Hilgard.  It's closer to the law school and farther from the frat houses.  I think it's all pretty expensive though.

Some of the enthusiasm on this thread is infectious...just posting to say...here's another for the class of 2009!

Also, when's a good time to start looking for apartments?  I live about an hour-hour and a half from LA, so I'll probably look for apts other than Weyburn.  Anyone?

really...i heard the rooms were kinda small.  what exactly did they like about weyburn?  (besides proximity, which I admit sounds great)

Proximity, and cost given proximity, but proximity equals convenience. For me, paying 950 at weyburn instead of 1200 for a single/studio that's private is a big deal, and it means more $ for me because i'm trying to avoid bringing a car for 1L.

The rooms are small, but it seems to be a really advantageous trade-off given the other options of distance, cost and space that people contend with.

I was wondering about the Weyburn status, too, so I emailed the UCLA housing office... they said:

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

Thank you for using Ask Housing.

The Weyburn lottery pool consists of 570 applicants (and is growing). If you weren't guaranteed housing by the Graduate Department. You are consider a Lottery applicants. A Lottery applicants are not guaranteed housing. Housing is offered to lottery applicants based on space availability. A limited number of lottery applicants are offered housing each academic year. Housing offer or wait list status will be e-mailed to lottery applicants by August.

Thank you,

I don't know how many spots are available, but this email made me feel like I should start thinking of alternatives.  The thing is, when I had talked to an admissions officer back in March, they made it sound like I (not just me but this year's incoming law students) don't have to worry about securing on-campus housing. 

A bit confusing... wish we could know by June.  If anyone else has any other info, I'd be interested to know :)
