HI everyone, i guess i'm a little new to the board considering i was accepted just last week. can anyone give me some information on housing? I was all prepared to go somewhere else and then this acceptance magically dropped into my lap so i haven't really made any plans. Thanks so much in advance!

Hey all,

Just found this thread and thought I'd say hi. I'm joining the class this coming year as well and wanted to meet some people before I head down there. I just got back from the area today and signed a lease for an apartment. WOOHOO!! a little expensive but still nice so if you could add me to the yahoo groups, i'd love it.

email address is [email protected]

is there any other info you need to add me to the group?

i can't believe we have summer reading :(
I keep hearing from med students that the first 2 years (at a lot of schools) are like an intense high school experience--at least in terms of social life. Perhaps this is our first taste of medical high school, hehe. Don't worry, I heard from someone who's read it that it's pretty interesting. :)

It is an interesting book. The author digresses a bit, but in all I liked it. I sat down for a few hours one day and read the whole thing at once.

I housed a Hmong applicant this year. It was awesome to hear his stories first-hand after reading the book.

Does anyone need housing? I just rented a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom place in Woodbridge Meadows (about 5 miles from campus) and the roommate I was planning on having just fell through. Rent for you would be $730 and utilities on top of that. I think I'd prefer to live with another girl, a non-smoker and sorry, no drugs in the apartment and no pets either (i'm allergic to cats and they don't allow dogs). Let me know if you're interested.

I'd be down for a pre-orientation dinner in late July or early August (or whenever anybody is free). On another note, has anyone received invitations to the white coat ceremony. How many people can we bring?

I'm so glad I can finally post on this thread.
I too got in off the waitlist this afternoon.
Does anyone know where to search for housing?
Is on-campus housing full? Why doesn't the website load (www.housing.uci.edu)?
Does anyone have any news on the situation at Vista Del Campo? Any open spaces?
Look forward to meeting everyone!

Congrats to everyone who's recently been accepted!! I can't wait to meet people in August!

As far as housing goes, definitely call the places you're interested in. As of a few weeks ago, both Palo Verde and Vista Del Campo still had rooms/apartments available (however, you might be out of luck if you want a studio). I'm moving some of my stuff into VDC this weekend--apparently the housing office is open 24/7. Good luck!

Im moving into vista del campo next week, and i think there are still spaces available. I am coming from the bay area and have been trying to get my place set from here which has been difficult since my leases were lost in the mail! The office is open 24/7, but Tracy, who is the lease manager is only there Mon-Fri. Good luck to all and see you soon.

By the way, who is planning on the San Diego retreat/conference?

oo, oo! I want to go too! However, I'm not getting down to Irvine until Thursday afternoon--making the final/permanent move into VDC. Would Thurs, Fri, or Sat evening work for anyone? My vote = the sooner the better. There's also an awesome gas grill right outside my apartment in vista if people are up for a bbq. I haven't personally used it but my housemate and her b/f cooked an amazing steak the other weekend when I was there. :)

I guess it depends on how many people come, but I would be up for a bbq at vista del campo on fri, or sat. I have to go to an ice cream social on thur night.

Ok, shall we attempt a bbq Friday evening at VDC? Apparently we're not allowed to use it after 10pm (ssshhhh, it's grad-student quiet time after 10, ha). We can meet at the VDC graduate street entrance at 7pm (first left when you get to VDC). I'm willing to stand on the corner (on Arroyo) so people don't get lost. Otherwise, my room number is 40223 (no stalkers, please). Once we meet up we can go get food at the store and then hungrily shove other grad students away from the grill! or politely ask them if we can share (but where's the fun in that?). Let me know what you guys think!

I'm also up for grabbing a beer/food at Steelhead tomorrow night. Dave, did you have a particular time in mind?

must not waste precious free time before orientation on Monday!
