Yeah, I got it. I think its funny that USC used an evite to communicate with us. Unfortunately the event is scheduled for my last day of classes, and there is no way I am missing the huge party that that is. Plus its not really worth it for me to go all the way to Cali just for a half-day get-together. Still sort of wish I could be there to meet some future classmates. :(

lol...I actually like the idea of several people with the same name. If you ever aren't sure, just say "Emily" and you have a good shot of being right!

That's funny... :) 'cause my real name ISN'T Emily!!! You guys will find out when I'll meet you either in class or at second look day.

I'm thinking of changing my first name to "Emily" for reals though cause my actual name is a mouthful. I figured patients would remember my name easier... Instead of "Uuuhhh... I'm supposed to have an appointment with Doctor Hkhkdhklhdfcc... is that how you pronounce her name?"

And yes, how appropriate that my 69th post was for starting this thread! weird. That was totally not planned.

I'll be living at my parents' house.

The best part is not the free rent but MY PARENTS WILL NOT BE LIVING WITH ME!!!! YES! score.

The downside is that I'd have to take the I5 during rush hour...

Monterrey Hills is a very nice, peacefull place. I've lived there for 2 years, will live there for one more year, then go to a funner place and say screw the commute. It's a great place with very nice apartments, great pools, hot tubs, etc, etc, and it's only 6 minutes from school without trafiic. 8 minutes from school with traffic. I'd say about 60-70% of the students live in this area and I would definately recommend checking it out.

Hey y'all. I will most likely be going to USC, too. I am not sure if I am going to be able to come out on the 23rd, though. I don't really have anything going on, but it is just a hassle, etc.

Hi all,

I may be at USC in the fall as well. Is on campus housing available for med students??

Also, what kind of cost are we looking at...for something like Monterey Hills for example...I don't know about you all but that's definitely an issue for me.

On a totally unrelated note to housing, thank goodness USC doesn't have major issues like the cadaver scandal. I was just reading that thread. Such madness.

I heard that from someone there, too. It didn't look anywhere close to completion, though. Maybe by the time we begin our rotations it might open (?)

Rats? eeek... I'm not a fan of them unless they're already in tissue culture...

Tell us future Geffen-ers about that. I just felt so unlucky about not being able to start med school two years earlier instead.

lol. If you apply soon you can get it without a problem. Thanks for looking out though. I'll be in the wards, so parking in the free lot would be cheaper and almost closer.

enjoy...class of 2007 thread.

http://forums.studentdoctor.net/showthread.php?s=&threadid=68954&highlight=keck

who cares...ill share the secret for the new students. you want to park in the structure behind the bookstore. im not sure what structure number/letter it is. but anyhow, the way it is set up is that faculty park on the first 4 floors and students and other employees can park on floors like 4 or 5-7. ok to park in the student levels all you need is a parking permit for ANY parking structure (like PSA, PSB, PSX, etc) and not necessarily the permit for that structure. this would only be helpful if it sold out. caution: everyone is trying to sign up early.

anyhow, i hope that helps. the secret is out and i hope it doesnt mess anything up.

Two Questions:

1. For those current students, what parking lot should we all in Class of 2008 try to get?

2. Does anyone a link to the plans/ design of the new LA county hospital?

Thanks!

Thanks for the parking tips docmemi. Do you... or does anybody... know the website for parking??? I tried transportation.usc.edu and parking.usc.edu and neither of those worked. I really want to try to get parking ASAP so I'd appreciate if someone could help me find the right site. Thanks for your help!

If you ever want to go to stuff on the undergrad campus, does having a parking permit for one of the health campus lots help any or will you be just like any other visitor to SC?

People were asking for the parking site...I think I found it at http://transserver2.usc.edu/finalsite/. (accessible also as just www.usc.edu/transportation)

And to reiterate another poster's question...what lot should we get a permit for?

May 15th you get to apply for parking. How ironic.

There are three (four) parking lots that you would want to get. The first is biggy/structure (not sure of the name. One of those two) It costs more than the other two but it is the closest. There is also lot 70 which is right across the street from biggy, and costs the same.

The lot most students get is lot 71. It is a 4 minute walk difference between it and biggy, but 100$ cheaper, so that is the one I would recommend overall.

The second is a new lot that was just put up this year. I donno it's name, but it is on San Pablo. It's actually closer than 71, but for days when you have to meet in County Hospital for ICM it's pretty far.

Hope that helps and if I findout anything from the match (it did only happen 42 minutes ago) I'll post it here.

the free parking that i know of is called lot 9. it is actually for lac/usc (not USC) physicians, students and other personnel. it is located across the street from the hospital (on the opposite side of the med school) on marengo street.
hope that helps.

On a totally unrelated note to Keck...

It's my birthday on MONDAY!!!!!! :)

Originally, I thought it would be super duper dope if I got my Keck acceptance around my birthday. I guess I'll consider it an early birthday present!

USC so hurt my feelings! I went there for undergrad, was a great student and really active in the school. I recently got a letter saying I wouldn't be invited for an interview! Yet I was interviewed at some top UC schools (UCLA of all schools). I guess that alumni connection stuff isn't as true as I thought:rolleyes:

Alright, I just got the Matchlist for Keck this year. I'm shocked with how good it is. I was expecting a down year since this class had a 3.47 GPA and a 30.4 MCAT with a 216 board score. The next two classes should do a lot better, but I'm still happy with this list. Look how many of our own Ortho we took shocking.

You guys, should I go to the accepted students reception? Who all is going? I know that I am going to USC for sure, I would have to take work off, pay for a plane ticket, etc., so I don't know if I should go. But I think it would be awesome to see more of the school, talk to med students, and meet future classmates. Well, I think I just made my decision. Is anyone else going for sure? Has anyone responded to the invite yet?
